NOTE: you MAY link to this tut. you MAY print it out for later use offline. you MAY NOT claim it as yours or take anything else from it. this tutorial is ©Ruby/Stormlight, written July 17, 2017.

Supplies needed:
-- PSP
-- main tube of choice.   I am using Princess of Greece 4 by Ketka.  You can purchase her at S&CO.

-- template of choice.  I am using a template from Rachel Designs.
-- 3-6 textures of choice.  I am using textures by Vix, fantasystock, malayah, and Agua.  You can find many great free textures at Deviantart.
-- royalty free tubes of choice (suggested tubes - 1 butterfly, at least 1 flower, and 2-3 accent tubes).
-- mask of choice.  I am using a mask from the Creative Misfits blog.
-- Jazzy's basic drop shadow setting of 2, 2, 50, 3 and color black.
-- the plugins Lokas Gel and Eye Candy Gradient Glow.
-- font of choice.  I am using Sweet Mia.

1.  Open your template, duplicate and close the original.  Save copy as your new canvas.  Delete any creator/copyright layer.

2.  Paste in your textures.  Drop one to the bottom and hide it for now.  Merge shapes 1 and 2 (back rectangles) together.  Match your first texture with the merged rectangles.  Select all > float > defloat > invert and hit delete key.   

3.  Repeat step 2 with shapes 3, 4 and 5, but use one texture at least twice.  

4.  Unhide your bottom texture.  Duplicate and bring to top.  Repeat step 2 with the texture copy on shape 6.

5.  Return to bottom texture.  Apply mask and merge group.

6.  Paste in your main tube.  Resize as needed, apply drop shadow and move to right hand side of canvas.

7.  Paste in your accent tubes.  Resize as needed, apply drop shadow to each and place where preferred.

8.  Create a new raster layer for your name.  Type your name and position to your liking.  In your plugins menu, go to Lokas Gel and use the default setting, but change your main color to a color from your main tube.

9.  In plugins menu, go to Gradient Glow and apply the following settings:

10.  Create a new layer for your copyright/watermark and add it on.
