PSP Version used: PSP X5

This tutorial assumes you have a good working knowledge of PSP.

Supplies:

Tube of choice. I am using an older tube by Elias Chatzoudis when he was with PSP Tubes Emporium, which is now closed. You can purchase his tubes here.

PTU kit by Toxic Desirez called Twisted Kandiland. You can purchase this kit here.

Template 324 by Toxic Desirez. You can find it here.

——————–

Open your template. Delete the Credits, Sweet Cluster, & Raster 3 layers. Set the canvas size to 850 x 737. Resize all layers by 71%.

Merge together any duplicate layers with their original layer.

Open your mask & Paper 5. Paste your paper as a new layer above the Raster 1 (bottom layer). Apply your mask, merge group.

Replace each layer with the following:

Raster 10 – Paper 10
Raster 7 – Paper 1
Raster 9 – Paper 9
Raster 8 – Paper 11
Raster 6 – Paper 8
Raster 5 – Add a new layer, floodfill with #121212. Effects, Texture Effects, Texture, 0, 2, 0, 0. Color white, 315, 50, 50.
Raster 4 – Create a linear gradient with the bright colors of from Paper 11. Select all, float, defloat on this layer. Add a new raster layer & floodfill with your gradient. Do not deselect. Adjust, blur, gaussian blur, 3.00. Deselect. Merge this layer down with the original layer.

DSB Flux – Radial Transmission, 5, -125, 50. Adjust, Sharpness, Sharpen.

Now lets add our elements:

Wordart – Resize by 50%. Paste as a new layer above the top circle layer. Select all, float, defloat. Selections, modify, expand by 2. Add a new raster layer & floodfill with #faf9f9. Deselect and move below the wordart layer. Merge these 2 layers together. Duplicate and leave for now.

Now lets add our tube. Paste as a new layer above the bow layer, resizing as necessary.

Move the duplicate wordart layer above the tube layer. On the gradient layer, select all, float, defloat. Selections, invert. On the tube layer, erase the part of the tube that extends below the gradient layer. Deselect.

Using your eraser tool, horizontal line bruse, size 395, erase the top half of the duplicate wordart. On the original wordart layer, do the same for the bottom half.
