“New Beginnings” is a PTU tagger size scrap kit created by Cindy of Puddicat Creations and can be purchased at Scraps with Attitude. 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 3 as a new layer.
Resize 80%
Use your Magic Wand and click inside of it.
New Raster layer below the frame.
Copy and paste a paper of choice Into Selection.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer beside the frame.
Move it into the exact position where you want it.
Move the duplicate layer below the frame layer.
Highlight the frame layer and click inside of it with your Magic Wand.
Highlight the duplicated tube layer.
Tap the delete key.
Change the Properties to Soft Light.

Add your embellishments. I used:
Flowers 1: Resize 70%
Books: Resize 25%
Flower basket: Resize 50%
Candle 1& 2: Resize 25%
Element 1: Resize 80% - Use your Target Tool to change to any color of your choice
Curtain 1: Mirror - Move up into the corner - see my tag for reference.

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

To get the feathered look to your curtain and the leaf vine:
Use your Freehand Selection Tool and outline the element but let the outline only touch the part of the element you want to have the feathered effect.
Number of Pixels:
Tap the delete key until you have the effect you want.

Add your copyrights.

Add your name.
Give it a slight inner bevel:

Resize all layers 80%.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
