***Any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental & completely unintentional!***

Here is what we will be making :


Supplies Needed :
Paint Shop Pro X2 (Any version should work)
Animation Shop
Tube Of Choice - I used PinUp Toons now available at CDO
Scrapkit : CDS August Challenge @ Cool Scraps Digital Store Or CDO Forum

Plugins Used :
Eye Candy 4000 - Gradient Glow (Optional)
Eye Candy 5 Impact - Glass (Optional)
Xero - Radiance (Optional)

Font Used :
Impact

Elements Used :
Element02
Element04
Element 01
Element03
Element05
Element06
Papers 01 & 02


Lets Begin :

Start by making a new 800 X 650 transparent canvas. (Don't worry we will crop it a bit at the end of the tutorial!)
To open a new canvas go to File - click New

Click Ok

Now Open Element02 from your kit - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 65%. Now use your move tool & position your Element02  (frame) to the center of your canvas.

Now click on your Magic Wand tool to activate it. Then click inside your Element02 (Frame) 
Go to Selections - click Select All - Selections again & click Modify - then click Contract - set your Number Of Pixels to 5 & click Ok.

Now Open Paper01 - Copy & paste it INTO SELECTION.
Go back to Selections - click Select None.

Go to your Layers Pallet - Move your Paper01 layer down so that it is directly below your Element02 layer.

Now open your Tube of choice - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then position it center of your frame. Now go to your layers pallet - right click on your tube layer - then click Duplicate. Now move your duplicated tube layer up above your frame (Element02) layer.
(You should have one tube layer below your frame (Element02) layer & your duplicated Tube layer should be above your Element02 layer.)

Now on your top tube layer - activate your Eraser Tool - & erase the legs off of your tube. (If you are using a different tube erase the parts that you don't want visible.)
Once you have the part erased from the top tube layer - go to your layers pallet & click on your bottom tube layer & erase the exact same parts.

Click back up on your Top  Tube layer - go to Effects - click Plugins - then click Xero - then Radiance.
(You can use my settings below or your own)


Click Ok.

Now in your layers pallet - click on your bottom tube layer - then go to Effects -click 3D Effects - then click Drop Shadow. (Again you can use my settings below or your own)


Click ok.

Now click on the very top layer in your layers pallet -

Open your Element04 - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 75%. Using your move tool , position it at the top of your frame.

Now go to your layers pallet - move your Element04 layer down below your Paper01 layer.
Go to Adjust - click Sharpness - then click Sharpen.

Now in your layers pallet - right click on your Elelemt04 layer - then click Duplicate. Using your Move Tool position your duplicated Element04 down so it is directly below your first one.
Now duplicate it 2 more times & move each one down so that it makes a square around your frame.

Open Element01 - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 35%. Position it to the bottom left corner of your frame.
Adjust - Sharpness - Sharpen
Effects - 3D Effects - Drop Shadow (Same settings as before)

Open Element05 - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 30%. Position it to the bottom left corner on your frame. 
Adjust - Sharpness - Sharpen
Effects - 3D Effects - Drop Shadow (Same settings)

Go to your layers pallet - Right click on your Element05 layer - then click Merge - then click Merge Down.

Now your Element 01 & Element 05 layers should be in one layer.

Now right click on your merge layer - then click Duplicate - Go to Image & click Mirror.
Use your move tool to adjust the position of your duplicated layer if needed.


Open Element06 - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then re-size it to 50% , Position it to the lower left of your frame.

Move this layer down in your layers pallet so it is under your top tube layer.

Go to your layers pallet - Right click on your Element06 layer - then click Duplicate. Go to Image & click Mirror.

Now we are going to add a couple of borders -

Click on your last layer in your layers pallet again - Go to Selections - click Select All - Selections again & click Modify - then click Contract. Set your number of pixels to 8 & click Ok.

Go back to Selections & click Invert.

Now activate your Flood Fill tool - set your foreground color to #000000 (Black). 

Make a new raster layer - then flood fill between your two marching ants lines.
