Depression Awareness FTU

This tutorial was written for those who have a working knowledge of PSP. Any similarity to another tutorial is purely coincidental.
  
:Supplies Needed: 
 PSP X3 but any version will work
 Tube of choice 
I'm using Suzanne Woolcott and you must have a license to use her work, you can find it here
Scrap Kit, Inside I Hide FTU by tootypups found here
Thank you!
 Mask I used is WSL-350 found here
Font I used is Pea Paula
Add Drop Shadow as you go with your settings at 2, 2, 65, 15

Let's Begin!
Open up a new image any size you like. Flood fill white
Open up wreath 1, copy and paste as new layer
With your ellipse tool, width setting on 6, making sure your foreground is open and your background fill is closed, draw out a circle above the wreath. Go to Selections-Select All-Float-Defloat-Modify-Expand by 4
Then open up paper 19 and copy and paste as new layer, go to Selections-Invert-Delete-Deselect
Open up element flower basket 1 and copy and paste as new layer and position where I have mine, see example above.
Open up your tube, copy and paste as new layer and position her on the circle you drew out, if you're using the same tube I am you will need to tilt her to the right a little, duplicate her and move your duplicate up to the top, position her hand like it is holding the top of the basket. Now with your eraser tool erase part of the dress that is hanging over the basket
Open up element floralDeco4, and copy and paste as a new layer, position it to the right of the circle you drew out, then open up 3 more tubes of the same artist, copy and paste each one as a new layer on the 3 circles from FloralDeco4. Look at my example above
So in order to do that follow these instructions:
Open up tube and copy and paste as new layer position it above the first circle on FloralDeco 4, then highlight the FloralDeco4 layer on your layers palette, and go to Selections-Select All-Float-Defloat, then highlight your tube layer in the layers palette and go to Selections-Invert-Delete-Deselect. 
Repeat this same process for the other 2 tubes on the other 2 circles on the floralDeco4

Open up elements, rose string 1, the green ribbon, the blank tag 4, copy and paste each as a new layer and position where I have mine.


Then open up the rose string 1 again, and with your free hand selection tool and your settings set on free hand, draw just around the rose and copy and paste that selection as a new layer, resize and duplicate, and put them where I have mine, see example above.
Open up  paper element 18 and copy and paste as a new layer, then apply your mask, invert the mask
Add your drop shadows, name and copyright info and you are done!
