Thank you Kathi for a most beautiful autumn themed kit!

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

~~ Lets get started ~~

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

Make your Selection Tool active set on Circle.
Make a circle approximately 425 pixels.
New Raster layer.
Copy and paste Paper 4 Into Selection.
Apply Eyecandy 3.1 – Glow:

Don’t worry about placement of this layer just yet.

New Raster layer.
Make your Selection Tool active again, this time set on square.
Create a square approximately 360 x 350 pixels.
Copy and paste Paper 4 Into Selection.

Move both paper layers into position – see my tag for reference.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.
Move it into a position that will look nice in front of both paper layers.
Highlight the rectangle paper layer.
Click anywhere outside of it with your Magic Wand.
Highlight the tube layer.
Use your Eraser Tool and erase the areas of the tube you don’t want to overhang the rectangle paper.
