This tutorial was written assuming you have a working knowledge of PSP.

~♥~ Let’s get started ~♥~

Open up a 700 x 700 blank canvas.
Flood fill white.

Copy and paste Frame 3 as a new layer.
Resize 70%
Duplicate/Resize 70%
Move both frames into position - see my tag for reference.

Copy and paste Stitching 1 as a new layer.
Resize 65%
Duplicate/Resize 70%
Position each over a frame.

Highlight the larger frame.
Click inside of it with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 4.
New Raster layer below the frame.
Copy and paste Paper 2 Into Selection.
Copy and paste Grass as a new layer just below the frame.
Tap the delete key.

Highlight the smaller frame.
Repeat the above step.

Copy and paste Cloud 1 as a new layer below the larger frame.
Resize 40%
Move into position.
Highlight the paper layer.
Click anywhere outside of it with your Magic Wand.
Highlight the cloud layer.
Tap the delete key.

Paste the cloud below the smaller frame.
Resize 25%
Move both clouds into position - merge down.
Highlight the paper layer.
Click anywhere outside of it with your Magic Wand.
Highlight the merged cloud layer.
Tap the delete key.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.

Add your embellishments. I used:
Flower 3
Greens 5: Resize 60% - position behind the frames and in front of the larger frame.
Green 5 again: Resize 40% - Duplicate twice/mirroring one of them - position in front of the frames
Flower 5: Resize 50%
Flower 1 - Duplicate/Mirror
Flower 4: Resize 60%/Mirror
Flower 4 again: Resize 60%/Flip/Resize 70%

Tip: If too much of your branch is missing the simply undo the mask. Move the branch closer to the middle of your canvas and reapply the mask. Then move your branch wherever you like.

Paste the Greens again.
Resize 60%
Free rotate Right 80 degrees.
Apply the mask just as you did to the other greens layer.

Highlight your white canvas.
