*********************** 

with all the files unzipped and ready to go, let's get started.
open up the template and delete the copyright info layer.
we are going to work our way up from the bottom up.

add a new raster layer above the background layer and flood fill it with the following color:
#3f333f
apply the mask with default settings.
right click on the mask layer to merge the mask group.

now open a paper1 from the kit and copy.
paste as a new layer above the RECTANGLE1 template layer.
resize the paper by 80%.
on the RECTANGLE1 layer, select all/float/defloat/invert selection.
hit delete on the paper1 layer.
select none and delete the RECTANGLE1 layer.

repeat the previous step with the following layers and papers:
OVAL - paper8
RECTANGLE2 - paper4

now back down to the SQUARE1 template layer, merge it with the SQUARE2 layer.
add a new raster layer below it.
set the following colors in your materials palette:
foreground - #ada7b3
background - #3f333f
open the color palette and using the foreground fading to background gradient, set the following settings:
CLICK IMAGE FOR LARGER PREVIEW
flood fill the new raster layer.
now using your pick tool, pull it in as close as you can to the squares layer.
like so:
CLICK IMAGE FOR LARGER PREVIEW

now on the OVAL OUTLINE template layer, add noise using the following settings:


now on the squares layer, select all/float/defloat/invert selection.
hit delete on the gradient layer.
select none and delete the merged squares layer.

now on the RECTANGLE3 template layer, add a new raster layer below it.
use the following gradient settings to flood fill the new raster layer:
CLICK IMAGE FOR LARGER PREVIEW

using the pick tool again, pull the gradient in close to the rectangle.
on the rectangle3 layer, select all/float/defloat/invert selection.
hit delete on the new gradient layer.
select none and delete the RECTANGLE3 template layer.

now open the tube.
copy and paste (C/P) as a new layer on top.
mirror the tube.
pull it down so a portion of her body is visible again the middle rectangle and SEXY text layer.
duplicate the rectangle layer and select all/float/defloat/invert selection.
hit delete on the tube layer and delete the duplicate rectangle layer.
on the SEXY text layer, duplicate and select all/float/defloat/invert selection.
delete the duplicate layer.
on the tube layer, go to effects/photo effects/black and white film.
apply it with brightness and clarify both set to 0.

on the text layers, you can use papers or colors to change it.
just be sure to do select all/float/defloat so its a clean edge.

now that all the basics are done, add any elements, text and tubes.
don't forget to add artist credit and license info.

when you're all done, copy special > copy merged. 
paste as a new image and use your magic wand tool to select outside the tag. 
invert selection and crop to selection. 
that will get rid of any extra space that you don't need.

thanks for trying my tutorial! =)
