“Giving” is a PTU tagger size scrap kit created by Connie of Connie’s Creative Chaos and can be purchased at Sunflower Scraps Boutique. You can visit her blog here.

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 4 as a new layer.
Resize 70%
Using your Selection Tool, outline each frame box.
New Raster layer below the frame.
Copy and paste a paper of choice Into Selection.

Using your Selection Tool again, outline the top frame.
Copy and paste your tube below the frame.
Tap the delete key.

Repeat the above step with the remaining 2 boxes.

Once you’ve done that, close out your white canvas and merge visible.
Reopen your white canvas.

Copy and paste Flower 7 as a new layer.
Resize 80%
Using your Freehand Selection Tool outline the flower vine:

Number of Pixels:
Tap the delete key until you have a nice feathered look.
Move the Duplicate behind the merged frame layer.
Highlight the top vine layer and erase anything you don’t want overlapping the frame.

Add your embellishments. I used:
Tied in Green bb: Resize 25%
Humming 1: Resize 40%
Givingfly 4: Resize 25% and 50%

Highlight your white background.
New Raster layer.
Select All.
Copy and paste a paper of choice Into Selection.
Apply the Mask.
Resize 130%

Type out the words
“Spring comes…”
Be sure the words are on separate layers.
Move them into position and then merge visible.
Give it an inner bevel:

Add your copyrights.

Add your name.
Give it the same inner bevel.
Apply Greg’s Factory Output Vol II - Pool Shadow.

Resize all layers 80%.
