“Love Don’t Live Here” is a tagger size scrap kit created by Jessica of Gothic Inspirations and can be purchased from her store here.  Thank you Jessica for another fantastic kit.

~~ Lets get started ~~

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

Copy and paste Frame 2 as a new layer.
Resize 60%
Duplicate/Resize 85%
Move both frames into position – see my tag for reference.
To both frames:
Click inside the frame with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 4.
New Raster layer below the frame.
Copy and paste Paper 3 Into Selection.

Now you’re going to add the elements and tube below the larger frame.  See my tag for placement of all elements and tube.  Don’t worry about what overhangs.  We’ll clean that up in a bit.
The following elements to add:
Your tube
Lightning: 40%/Lower the Opacity to about 18
Dead Grass

Highlight the paper that’s below all the elements you just added.
Click anywhere outside of it with your Magic Wand.
Highlight each elements and tap the delete key.

Duplicate your tube layer and resize 85%.
Move it into position below the smaller frame.

Duplicate each element that’s below the frame and resize all of them 85%
Move these elements into position below the smaller frame.
Use your Eraser Tool to erase any parts of the fog that may overhang the smaller frame.
To each element change the Properties:
Fog:  Overlay
Tube:  Hard Light
Dead Grass:  Lower the Opacity to about 71

Add your elements.  I used:
Rose w/Thorns:  Resize 40%/Duplicate/Resize 85%
Frame 6:  Resize 40%/Duplicate
Candles:  Resize 60%.
Ribbon 2:  Resize 40% and 85%/Duplicate/Mirror/Resize 85%
Crow:  Resize 50%
Tree 2:  Resize 75%
Ric Rac:  Resize 85%
Stitches:  Resize 85%

Highlight your white background.
New Raster layer.
Select All.
Copy and paste Paper 8 Into Selection.
Apply the mask.
Resize 120%
Merge Group.

Add your credits.
