This tutorial is borne from my own manipulated lil' mind.
Any similarity to any other tutorial(s) is purely coincidental.
This tutorial was written for those who have a working
knowledge of PSP and was written using PSP X2,
tho' any version should work.

Let's do this! =)
Open a new canvas 650 X 650 px.
Copy & paste paper5.
Apply your mask & merge group.
Next copy & paste frame2.
Use your magic wand to click inside the frame.
Modify- expand by 4. Invert.
Paste paper7, resized 80%.
Hit delete & select none.
Add a drop shadow to the frame.
Now, add your main tube. Resize about 35%.
Apply Xero- Radiance at these settings:
Finally, add a drop shadow to your tube.
Now we'll add some elements.
For each one I added, I sharpened & added
a drop shadow to, unless specified otherwise.
Place this in the frame on the water.
Mirror & place on the left.
Now for the grass, there's 2 ways to do this.
grass3- 35%. Duplicate 10 times for a total of 11.
Position these across the width of the tag.
Close all layers except the grass layers & then
merge these layers visible. Re-open all your other layers.
Move this grass layer below your tube in layers palette.
Open my merged grass from my supplies
& paste in your canvas. Move below the tube
in layers palette. No drop shadow.
cattail1- 50%. Place in the grass.
Scatter the others in the grass.
Place on the left, in front of the grass.
flower3- 40%. Duplicate twice.
Place these in the grass like my example.
log- 60%. Place under your tube.
rock- 25%. Place in front of the log, to the right.
wolf2- 60%. Place off to the left a bit.
flower5- 35%. Duplicate twice.
Place these on your canvas like in my example.
deer- 45%. Place on the left, by the tree.
Move down to just above the tree in layers palette.
butterfly- 25%. Rotate 25 right.
Place near the flowers & cattails.
Drop shadow- 8 2 50 4, black.
butterfly2- 30%. Rotate 35 left.
Place this one near the small flower on the left.
Add the butterfly again, resizing 30% & rotate this one 25 left.
Place on the left near the flowers by the deer.
Drop shadow- 8 2 50 4, black.
Add any other elements if you prefer.
Next, add my word art from the supplies.
Place above the frame.
Add some noise- Gaussian/ Monochrome/ 55%.
Then add a gradient glow of choice & drop shadow.
Now, crop & resize your tag to your own preference.
Then add your proper copyrights & watermarks.
Now add your name. Duplicate.
On the bottom one, add a gradient glow
at these settings:
Then add HSB Noise at default settings.
Then add your drop shadow to this layer.
Finally, merge visible & save as a PNG & enjoy.
I hope you enjoy trying this tutorial.
I'd love to see your results. =)
