——————–

Open a blank canvas, 600 x 250.

Open Paper 5 and drag onto your canvas. Place to your liking.

Add your elements. I chose the following:

Element 49 – place to your liking.
Element 26 – Image>Rotate Canvas>90 CW; place in the middle.
Element 52 – Edit>Transform>Flip Vertical; place to the bottom of the canvas.
Element 32 – place to your liking.
Element 59 – resize by 50%; place to the bottom left corner.
Tube – place slightly to the right, resizing as necessary.
Element 34 – resize by 45%; place to the left side of your tube. Duplicate and place along the right side of the tube.
Element 42 – resize by 80%; place to the bottom left so the leaf bunches are to the left and you can no longer see the stem on the left. Duplicate, Edit>Transform>Flip horizontal. Place to the far right.
Element 16 – resize by 45%; place to the top of the clock.
Element 30 – resize by 40%; place to the right side of the clock.
Element 19 – place to the left side and arrange to your liking. Duplicate, Edit>Transform>Rotate 180 and place to the top right.
Element 23 – resize by 30%; place to the bottom, halfway between the left side and middle. Duplicate, Edit>Transform>Flip horizontal. Place between the middle and right side.
Element 29 – resize by 35%; place to the bottom between the blue flowers. Duplicate, Edit>Transform>Flip horizontal. Place to the bottom left. Duplicate and place this copy to the bottom right.
Element 34 – resize by 30%; place to the bottom right, next to the right flower. Image>Transform>Flip horizontal.

Apply a drop shadow of choice to your layers and flatten image. Image>Duplicate.

AAA FotoFrame. Change the width to 6, matte to 1, and opacity to 50.

Add your name, copyright, & license info. Apply a drop shadow of choice to your name. Flatten image again and save as a PNG.

For your avatar, open a new image, 200 x 200. On the original flattened image, drag image onto your new blank canvas. Arrange to your liking and flatten image. Apply the AAA FotoFrame again using the previous settings. Add your Initial and copyright & license info. Apply a drop shadow to your initial. Flatten image and save as a PNG.
