Let's get started.

In PSP Open up the following elements from the scrap kit;

Doodle-GI_TheWitchingHourSampler
 _TheWitchingHourSampler
Mask-GI_TheWitchingHourSampler
Ribbon2-GI_TheWitchingHourSampler
Paper4-GI_TheWitchingHourSampler

1.  From the scrap kit open up the Mask-GI then reduce
the size to 80% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "80%" all layers CHECKED. 

2.  
"Edit - copy", then "edit - paste as a new layer" on to your main canvas the Frame3-GI then reduce the size to 60% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "60%" all layers UNCHECKED. 

3.  Take your magic wand tool and
click inside the frame  until you have marching ants
The best settings I found to do this with are as follows;
(see print screen below)
Mode: Add(shift), Match mode: RGB Value, Tolerance: 102, Contiguous checked, Feather: 0, Anti-alias checked, Inside

4.  Go up to "Selections", then "Modify" and choose "expand" and 5 pixels

 5. Choose
Paper4-GI (or any paper of your choice) and "Selections", "Select All" then "Edit", "Copy" go back to you main canvas and "edit" , "paste as a new layer" then up to "Selections", "invert" then hit your "delete key" on your keyboard. Move this layer below your frame layer. "Selections", "Select None".  On your layer palette right click on your Paper4-GI layer and "merge down" merging your frame and paper layer together.

6.  
"Edit - copy", then "edit - paste as a new layer" on to your main canvas the Frame3-GI again and reduce the size to 60% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "60%" all layers UNCHECKED. Go up to "Image - Free Rotate" and use the settings I've shown in my print screen below 
(free rotate settings shown in print screen below)


7.   Take your magic wand tool and
click inside the frame  until you have marching ants (using the same settings as previously) then Choose Paper4-GI (or any paper of your choice) and "Selections", "Select All" then "Edit", "Copy" go back to you main canvas and "edit" , "paste as a new layer" then up to "Selections", "invert" then hit your "delete key" on your keyboard. Move this layer below your frame layer.
(see my print screen below for what I have now)


8.  You should still have the inside of your frame selected (should still have marching ants around it). On your layer palette click on your paper layer you just added to make it active then 
"Edit - copy", then "edit - paste as a new layer" on to your main canvas your tube. Move the part of the tube you want showing into the left hand side of your frame.  (I chose to just show her face). Go back to your tube again and click on it to make it active and go up to "image - mirror" then  "Edit - copy", then "edit - paste as a new layer" on to your main canvas the tube again and move it into your frame and move it over to the right.  On your layer palette right click on your top tube layer and "merge down" merging your 2 tube layers together. Go up to "selections - invert" and hit the "delete" key on your keyborad. On your layer palette change the "blend mode" to "soft light"

9.   "Edit - copy", then "edit - paste as a new layer" on to your main canvas the LHDLoveWA and move it into the centre of your frame.  On your layer palette change the blend mode to "soft light"

10.  "Edit - copy", then "edit - paste as a new layer" on to your main canvas the LHDLoveWA2 and move it up to the top part of the frame.  On your layer palette change the blend mode to "multiply"
(see my print screen below for what I have now)



11. 
"Edit - copy", then "edit - paste as a new layer" on to your main canvas the Doodle-GI and reduce the size to 65% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "65%" all layers UNCHECKED and move it to where you'd like. I moved mine into the main frame near the bottom.  On your layer palette right click and "duplicate" then up to "image - mirror" then "image - flip" and move it towards to the top of your main frame.  On your layer palette right click on the top Doodle layer and "merge down"  merging your 2 doodle layers together.

12.  
"Edit - copy", then "edit - paste as a new layer" on to your main canvas your main tube and I reduced the size to 90% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "90%" all layers UNCHECKED and move it to to the right hand side of your frame.

13.   "Edit - copy", then "edit - paste as a new layer" on to your main canvas the Ribbon2-GI  and I reduced the size to 60% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "60%" all layers UNCHECKED and move it along the bottom of your frame then go up to "image - mirror"  Make sure on your layer palette this layer is the TOP layer
(see my print screen below for what mine looks like now)


14.
"Edit - copy", then "edit - paste as a new layer" on to your main canvas the "Silence Hurts" wordart and reduced the size to 65% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "65%" all layers UNCHECKED.

15.  We're not going to add a "glow" to the wordart by going up to "Effects - Plug Ins - Eye Candy 3.1 - Glow" See my print screen below for the settings I used. The color is your choice.  I used a lighter purple color that matched my tube.


16.  
"Edit - copy", then "edit - paste as a new layer" on to your main canvas the LHDLoveWA and move it on top of your frame and to the left of your tube.  I reduced the size to 55% by going to "Image" , "Resize" "55%" all layers UNCHECKED.

17. With your text tool add your name.  I used a script font and gave it the same glow as I did with the wordart.

22.  Add your copyright information, save as a jpg (which will give it a white background) or png (close off the visibility of your white background layer) which will save it as a transparent background and you're

ALL DONE!!
