Any resemblance to another tutorial is purely coincidental
and unintentional.
This tut uses PSPX2 but can be used with other versions.

The first part of this tut is similar to the first template tut I made.

1 Open you template, shift D to duplicate and close the original.
2 Remove the top layer with the watermark etc on it. (Left click on it and click delete)
3 Make sure you are on layer circles, that's the second layer, just above the backgroundlayer.

4 Selections/Select all
5 Selections/Float
6 Selectons/Defloat
7 Selections/Modify/Expand by 1
8 Open a paper from your kit, resize if neccesary (Note: if you use a scrapperskit you don't need to resize but it's up to you, if you use a full kit, resize till 600 by 600. In this case the papers are 800 by 800 and I kept it this way.
9 Set your foreground to a paper of choice, I used tile violet.

angle: 0
scale: 100
Texture: not selected
10 Floodfill your layer with the paper, make sure you click on all parts of the circles. Remeber there's only one part you see, the rest is beneath the other layers so don't worry if it looks like they don't fill entirely.
11 You can go further now and fill all layers with the papers you like, repeating step4 till 9... be creative and have fun :-)

12 Add a dropshadow of choice to all your layers or use mine:

13 Click on your backgroundlayer
14 Layer/New rasterlayer
15 Floodfill this layer with one of your papers.I used mixed paper.
16 Layers/Load/Save mask/Save mask from disk, gabeemask 4 with these settings:

17 Layers/Merge/Merge group
18 Back to your backgroundlayer, floodfill this with another paper. I used twinkle stars 1 again.
19 Open the little fae from Kanela, resize by 50% twice and sharpen if needed.
20 Copy and paste the fae to your tag, Layers/Arrange bring to top and move her to the right so she sits on the frame layer.
21 Give it the same dropshadow
22 Open artword believe dragon, resize with 50% once and paste to your tag. Move to the left.
23 Give the same dropshadow.
24 Image add borders with these settings:

25 Click inside the border with your magic wand with these settings:

26 Floodfill with one of your papers. Don't deselect yet!
27 Effects/3D-effects/Inner bevel with these settings:

28 Selections/Select none
29 Image/Add borders, same settings, only change to 10 pixels
30 Repeat step 25 until 28
31 Add your name to the tag, I used A'sDragonflyDance.
32 Layer convert to a raster layer
33 Add a dropshadow of choice or go to Effects/Plugins/Eyecandy4000/Gradient glow with these settings:

34 Give it a dropshadow with these settings:
