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

Please do not share this or put my tuts on another website!!


* Scrapkit Imagine by Frosted Illusions. It's a payed kit and you can buy it here
* Tube of your choice, I used a tube by Suzanne Woolcott, this one is bought by AMI but she now has a her own shop. You can buy her artwork and lots of goodies here. Please don't use this without a license!
* Mask, sg_lacy-edge-floral by my dear friend sandie. You can find her gorgeous masks here. Put your mask in your maskfolder in psp.

Remember to save often :-)
Have fun!!

1 Open a new transparent image 700 by 500, I always use a large workspace, you can always crop later, floodfill with white.
2 Open one of the frames in psp, I used FI_imagine frame2.
3 Image/Rotate right
4 Image/Resize by 75%, all layers checked
5 Edit/Copy and paste as a new layer on your image
6 Move it to the top of your working image
7Click inside the first part of your frame with your magic wand.
8 Selections/Modify/Expand 3 pixels
9 Open one of your papers, I used FI_Imagine Paper3 and put the pattern into your foreground of your materials palette.
10 Layer/New raster layer
11 Floodfil this layer with your pattern.
12 Selections/Select none
13 Move this layer underneath your frame layer
14 Repeat step 7 till 13 for the second part of the frame with another paper, I used FI_Imagine Paper6
15 Open your tube, this is a bit tricky because you have to see how to do this, it depends on the tube you use, mine is perfect to let it "hang on the frame" but you can use another one to do it to your liking.
16 Edit/Copy, Edit/Paste as a new layer
17 Move it on the frame, with the part you want in the frame and the rest in the middle underneath.
18 Layers/Duplicate
19 Move this layer underneath your frame layer, so one tube layer is above the frame and one beneath but on top of the paper layers.
20 Make sure you are on the top layer, your palette should look something like this:

21 Click on your eraser tool and remove the parts of the tube so the frame will show again, this is easy because the other tube will stay clean.
22 Open up the flowers you want to use, I used a whole lot of different ones, resized them and placed them in a circle round the tube like this:

23 Open some of the butterflies and dragonflies you want to use.
24 Resize them and paste them on the tag. It's all up to you how you want to use them.
25 Open FI_Imagine Brad1, resize and place them on the eyelets of the frame.
26 Crop your tag to your liking.
27 Make sure you are on your white backgroundlayer.
28 Open a new paper from the kit, I used FI_Imagine Paper1 and put it on the foreground of your material palette
29 Layer/New raster layer and floodfill this with the paper.
30 Layers/Load/Save mask/Load mask from disk and find your mask from sandie with these settings:

31 Layers/Merge/Merge group
32 Add your watermark and the copyright info
33 Save as a jpeg

That's it!!! I hope you had fun making this tutorial.
