I used the beautiful art of Zindy

Lets begin!

1. Open a new canvas 600x600 and fill white. Copy and paste a paper of choice as a new layer. Layers, new mask layer, from image. Look for WSL_mask203 and hit OK. Delete the mask in the layers palette and answer yes to the question asked. Ungroup layers.

2. Copy and paste a swirl of choice as a new layer. Resize and add a drop shadow of choice. Place at the top right of your canvas. Copy and paste another swirl, resize and add a drop shadow, and place to the bottom left of the canvas.

3. Copy and paste a patterned paper of choice as a new layer. I resized mine by 20%. Layers, new mask layer, from image. Look for WSL_mask208 and hit OK. Delete the mask in the layers palette and answer yes to the question asked. Ungroup layers.

4. Copy and paste a flower of choice as a new layer. Resize. I resized by 30%. Duplicate, and on the orignal, effects, Mura's Meister - Copies. I used the following settings, but you may need to play around with the settings if you're using a different flower etc.

Copies Settings

5. Duplicate, and on the original, effects, Toadies - What Are you, X and Y dose both set to 10. Effects, texture effects, weave with the following settings.

Gap Size - 2
Width - 4
Opacity - 6
Both colours set to black
Fill Gaps checked

6. Make the top layer active and copy and paste my frame as a new layer. Using your freehand selection tool, select the areas that would be the circular frame, see below for example.

MarchingAnts

7. Copy and paste a paper of choice as a new layer. Selections, invert, hit delete on your keyboard. Select none. Move this layer down under the frame layer.

8. Using your freehand selection tool again, select the rectangles inside the frame. We want to now delete these areas on both flower layers. Selections, select none. Select one of the rectangles this time, copy and paste a tube/image of choice as a new layer. Once happy with the position, selections, invert, hit delete on your keyboard. Selections, select none. Repeat for the other rectangle.

9. Merge both the tube/image layers together and change the properties to hard light or one of choice. Duplicate.

10. Copy and paste the button heart or embellishment of choice as a new layer. resize. I resized by 20%. Place over the face of one of your tube/images. Rotate to the right slightly. Duplicate, image mirror, move down and place over the face of the other tube/image. Merge the hearts together. Click inside both hearts with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand by 5. Layers, new raster layer, move it under the hearts layer and fill with a light colour of choice. I used a light pink from the button heart to fill mine with, but play around and see what colour works best for you. Lower the opacity to around 40.

11. Make the top layer active and copy and paste my word art as a new layer. Once happy, add your copyright information , watermark and name, save as a jpeg, and you're all done.
