This tutorial was written by me on April 27th, 2015 and is my own creation. Any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional.

PSP Version used: PSP X5

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

Supplies:

Tube of choice. I am using the art of Misticheskaya. I purchased this tube at Scraps and the City, which is now closed. This tube is no longer available, but she has some beautiful tubes here.

PTU kit from BLT Dezignz called Mauve Cocoa. You can purchase this kit here.

Font of choice. I am using Dubloon.

Open a new blank canvas, 600 x 250.

Open PP1. Resize by 22%. Paste as a new layer onto your blank canvas.

Add your elements. I used:

Birdcage – resize by 10%. Place to the upper left.
Book – resize by 15%. Place to the bottom right side of the birdcage. Rotate slightly to the right.
Flower1 – rotate right. Resize by 17%. Place to the far right. Duplicate, flip horizontal & place to the far left. Merge down.
Ribbon1 – resize by 10%. Place to the bottom. Duplicate twice and arrange across the bottom of your canvas. Merge the ribbons together. Move the flower so you see it above the ribbon.

Open your tube and paste just above the paper layer. Place the face of the tube just to the left of center. Duplicate twice. On the bottom tube layer, Toadies, What Are You? using the default settings. Set the blend mode to overlay. On the middle tube layer, set the blend mode to luminance (L), 10. On the top tube layer, gaussian blur, 3.00. Set the blend mode for this layer to screen, 38.

Paste your tube again, resizing slightly. Flip horizontal & place to the right side.

Create a linear gradient, angle 45, repeats 3 with #d8c2c4 & #f0f1e7. Add a new raster layer & floodfill with your gradient. Select all, modify, contract by 4, then press delete. Deselect. Add noise, 25, uniform, monochrome checked.

Open PP4, resize by 22%. Paste as a new layer. Crop your image to 600 x 250. Select all, modify, contract by 2. Press delete then deselect & merge down with the gradient layer.

Add your name, copyright, & license info. Apply a drop shadow of choice. Save as a PNG.

For your avatar, crop the area you would like to use for your avatar. Delete the frame, copyright, & name layers. Repeat the steps for the frame, copyright, & name or initial.
