Tutorial: Happily Never After

It's been quite a while since I've written a tutorial (and I still need to get some of my old ones transferred over!) but came up with this one.  I hope you like it!

This tutorial was written for those with a knowledge of PSP.

You will need: 

Kit :Twisted Fairytale by Candy's Treats.  This is a freebie kit, you can find it HERE 
Mask 157 by Simone, which you can find HERE, or mask of choice
Tube of choice (I chose the beautiful artwork of Laguna, which you can purchase from PFD.  

Ok, let's get started!

Open a new transparent canvas, 700 x 700.
Copy cluster 3, paste as new layer.  Resize 90%.
Use your magic wand and click inside each frame, expand by 8.

New layer, drag underneath cluster layer.  
Copy paper 15, paste into selection.  Ctrl+D to deselect.

Copy twistedwater and place toward bottom of frames, so that the bottom of
the water is not showing on the bottom of the cluster.  Change blend mode
to Luminance.

Copy lightburst and paste as new layer.  Drag toward bottom so that light
is shining just above the cluster plants.  Change blend mode to Lumincance.

Copy twistedlights. Resize 65% and paste on top of plant cluster. Erase parts
covering the clock. 

Copy twistedfairytaleflowers and paste as top layer.  Resize 50%. 
Place on the right side of the frame, just above the cluster plants.
Duplicate and place on left side.  Raise up slightly.

Open butterlfly2, resize 25%. Rotate right 22.  Place almost halfway up on the 
left side of the frame.

Open cluster2 and paste under the frame background and drag down so that a little
is showing under the main cluster plants and shift to left a little bit.

Open cluster3 and drag to bottom layer and arrange so that a little is showing
at the bottom and the left side.  Duplicate.  Drag up and to the left slightly.

Open wordart Happily Never After and resize 65%.  Place just below the bottom
left of the clock.

Highlight top layer and paste your tube, position in center (a sitting tube
will work best)

Add drop shadow of choice to layers.

Add layer at very bottom. Select all. Open paper 25, paste into selection.
Add your mask  and merge group. Resize 95%.
I added texture polished stone default effect to my mask.
