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

Flood fill white.

Copy and paste Frame F8 as a new layer.
Resize 85%

Copy and paste E55 as a new layer.
Resize 80%
Move it into position in front of the frame.
Duplicate and move behind the frame.
Highlight the element in front of the frame.
Using your Eraser Tool erase the area that’s showing in front of the frame accept zoom in and be careful around the bow - you don’t want to erase any of that!

Add your embellishments. I used:

E 34: Resize 50%
E 22

Highlight your white background.
New Raster layer.
Copy and paste PP 1 Into Selection.

Make your Pen Tool active, set to Draw Freehand.
Make a wavy line across your canvas.

Make your Text tool active using Promocyja font.
Be sure the alignment is set to center.
(Understand that the typing will be very light on the canvas and that’s ok. We’ll darken it up in a bit)
Move your curser along the center of the line until you see a Rocking A.
Click the mouse.
A text box should open.
Type out the words “ A rustle in the wind reminds us a fairy is near.” The typing will be very light on the canvas and that’s ok. We’ll darken it up in a bit.
Click Apply

Close out the eye on the New Path layer.
Highlight Vector 1 layer.
Convert to Raster layer.
