Unzip to your masks folder.
This Tutorial was created using Corel's Paint Shop Pro® with the understanding
that you have a working knowledge of this program.

(I used PhotoX2 but you should
have no trouble recreating it with earlier versions of PSP)
**Program Tip: you can click and drag open items onto a working canvas, in order
to do this you need to have
your layers palette open then just select the layer you want then click and drag
it to your canvas**

Open a new image 600 X 600
Select all then Open Chili WTC Paper3 paste into selection
Open frame 3 resize by 80% copy n paste to your tag
Select magic wand tool set settings to Add, shift, /rgb/ Tolerance and feather set to 0, contig and antialias checked outside selected from dropdown
select inside the frame then selection expand by 15 add a new layer

Open journal 2 copy n paste into
selection drag to below frame layer.
open grass and leaves and bambo
as you resize each element by 50% click and drag to your tag
ensure you close original without saving

Arrange as desired

** if your like me and you never
save your work in progress this is a good spot to remember save this file as a
psp image

( i created a WIP(work in progress) folder in my psp folder eg: C:\Users\Xtenziv\Documents\My
PSP Files\WIP) **

Open Panda and resize by 40% click and drag to tag
place in bottom right corner.

Add a drop shadow i used V=4 H= -4 Opac=70 blur=9 color Black.

Open Butterfly click and drag to tag

Mirror image and place on the frame top left.

drop shadow
Add your name I chose Charlie, Font Size 48 I used #9a924b An olive color.

Then repeat font step with black as color then pull that layer below olive
offset just a little to make it look like a shadow.

Add All copyright information most require name and URL to be
CLEARLY VISABLE on your creations
ALSO REMEMBER to have your copyrights in a color that can be seen on any
background color
I recommend adding a gradient glow or a small white drop shadow to inhance

Now go back to the first layer Chili WTC Paper3 and apply mask WSL_Mask 222

Merge group layers. Select eraser tool set on size 25 Hardness 34, Step 32 , Density 100, Opacity 57 soften
mask edges so that merged image doesn't have a sharp edge

Merge all visable copy n paste tag as new image.. this should make image size
