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 November 4, 2017.

Supplies needed:
-- PSP
-- main tube of choice.   I am using "Gothika" by Lysisange.  You can purchase her here.

-- scrap kit of choice with scenic papers included.   I am using a matching kit by Lil Mz's Brainstorms, which you can get here.
-- mask of choice.  I am using a mask by Simone.
-- Jazzy's basic drop shadow setting of 2, 2, 50, 3 and color black.
-- the plugins Mura Meister Copies and Eye Candy Gradient Glow.
-- font of choice.  I am using Diploma.

1.  Open a frame of choice from your kit.  Duplicate, close original and save as your canvas.  Resize frame if needed and expand canvas if needed as well.

2.  Select a scenic paper from your kit.  Paste underneath your frame.  Click outside your frame with magic wand.  Selections > modify > expand by 8.  Return to paper and hit the delete key.

3.  Select a second paper that is non scenic.  Paste as bottom layer.  Apply your mask and merge group.

4.  In effects menu, go to Texture Effects > Polished Stone and apply the following settings to your mask layer:

5.   Now let's add in a few elements.  Names/numbers apply to the scrap kit I'm using so if you're using a different one, use the elements of your choice.  All elements are resized with the smart size setting.  Remember to apply basic drop shadow after each element is placed unless otherwise marked:

59 (string of roses) - 40-50%.  place along bottom of frame.
9 (candle) - 30%.
38 (white flower vine) - 60%.  apply Mura Meister Copies plugin, Encircle preset, 16-20 copies.  drop behind frame layer.
85 (watch) - 20%.
16 (black blooms) - 35%.
96 (Celtic cross pillar) - place opposite tube outside of frame.
56 (violin case) - 65%.
45 (mask) - 40%.
34 (black roses) - 40%.
28 (raven) - 30%.
104 (dried leaf) - apply Mura Meister Copies plugin, Feedback circle random, default settings.

6.  Create a new raster layer for your name.  Type your name and place it to your liking.  In your effects menu, go to Inner Bevel and apply the following settings:

7.  Go to EyeCandy in your plugins menu.  Go to Gradient Glow and apply the following settings:

8.  Create a new layer for your copyright/watermark.
