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 January 29, 2018.

Supplies needed:
-- PSP
-- main tube of choice.   I am using "Febby Leen" by Selisan Al-Gaib.  You can purchase her here.

-- template of choice.  I am using a template by Ali.
-- 3-5 textures of choice.  I am using textures found on Deviantart created by Wu-KillahD (smoke), carllton (frost) and ainhel (light).
-- floral tubes of choice.  I am using tubes by GG.
-- mask of choice.  I am using a mask by wynter. 
-- [optional] word art or word art brush.
-- Jazzy's basic drop shadow setting of 2, 2, 50, 3 and color black.
-- the plugins Visman, Lokas and Eye Candy.
-- font of choice.  I am using Aventure Scrpitine Script.

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

2.  Merge the three vertical bar layers together.  Paste in the smoke texture.  On the vertical bars layer, select all > float > defloat > invert, then return to the texture and hit delete key.

3.  Paste in a second texture or the background from your tube file over top of the center square and the frost texture over the large background circle.  Repeat step 2 on each of these.

4.  Paste in the light texture as your bottom layer.  Apply mask and merge group.  Duplicate your mask layer.

5.  Select the square frame layer.  In your Adjust menu go to Add Noise and apply noise 57%, random, monochrome CHECKED.

6.  Paste in your tube as a new layer, resize if needed and apply basic drop shadow.  Place "inside" frame by using selection tool to cut off excess on the bottom of the tube.

7.  Paste in your flower and branch tubes on the canvas.  Apply drop shadow to each one and then arrange them to your liking along the bottom of the frame.

8.  Create a new raster layer.  Paste in your word art or use your word art brush, placing the word art over the flowers.  [optional - apply a light bevel and/or gradient glow/drop shadow to make the word art stand out.]

9.  Return to your mask layers.  On the top mask layer, go to VM Natural > Starmaker and apply these settings:

9.  Create a new raster layer and add your name.  Position it to your liking.  In plugins menu, go to Lokas > Gel and apply the following settings: 

10.  go to Eye Candy > Gradient Glow and apply these settings:

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