Lets begin!

1. Open a new canvas 600x600 and fill white.

2. Add a new raster layer and fill with a colour of choice. Layers, new mask layer, from image, look for my mask in the drop down menu, and hit OK. Delete the mask in the layers palette, and answer yes to the question asked.

3. Duplicate the masked layer, working on the original, adjust, blur, guassian blur - 10. Effects, tramages, Tow The Line with the default settings.

4. Make the top layer active, copyand paste my circle as a new layer. Click inside the circle with your magic wand, copy and paste your tube of choice as a new layer. Place into position, and once happy, selections, invert, hit delete on your keyboard. Lower the opacity to around 25

5. Make the black circle active and duplicate it. On the original, adjust, blur, guassian blur - 10. Effects, DSB Flux - Linear Transmission with the following settings.

6. Copy and paste the stitched circle as a new layer. Make the top layer active, copy and paste the light coloured stiched circles as a new layer. Duplicate and on the original, adjust, blur, guassian blur - 10. Effects, DSB Flux - Linear Transmission, use the same settings as before, but this time check the vertical box.

7. Make the top layer active again. Copy and paste the flowers as a new layer, I resized by 80%. Using your freehand selection tool, select the flowers only and colorise to suit.

8. Copy and paste your tube of choice as a new layer, I resized this layer by 80% also. Add a drop shadow of choice.

9. Copy and paste some bee's as new layers and place on the flowers. Add your copyright information and watermark.

10. Write out your name using a font of choice, I used a green from the leaves for my name. Add a gradient glow, width - 3, colour - white. Place it to the right of your main tube. Change the properties to soft light.

You're all done. Save as a jpeg.
