Rock 'n' Roll

I've used PSP9 for this tutorial, however you should be able to create this tag in all versions. 
I am assuming you have some knowledge of how PSP works, including applying masks.

Supplies needed:
A tube of choice.  I'm using one by Ralph Macrey, which is available from Artistic Dreams Imaging.
Please do not use the same tube without the appropriate license.
Scrap kit of choice.  I'm using Forgotten Melodies by MerePoule.  I downloaded this kit a long time ago, and I have managed to find some of her kits at Le Journal du Scrap, however the links for this kit are no longer valid.  Please use a kit of your choice.
Font of choice.  I've used **** Happens.
Mask of choice.  I've used WeeScotsLass's Mask249

Plugin: Eye Candy Impact - Gradient Glow (optional)

I've written this so you can twist your result to suit your tube and scrapkit choice - Hope you enjoy it.

1.  Open a new image 600x600 pixels.  Flood fill white.

As I have used a full size kit, all elements and papers have been resized down to approximately 20% of their original size. 
Please resize your kit elements as required.

2.  Copy and paste frame of choice from your scrapkit.  I've used mp08 from my kit.

3.  Select a paper from your kit - I've used paper16.  Copy it and paste as a new layer.  Move it below your frame.  Apply mask of choice to this layer and merge group.

4.  Copy and paste your tube as a new layer and move it above your frame. 
I placed mine, so it appears she's standing on the frame.
Resize as necessary.  I added a gradient glow and a drop shadow.

5.  Paste elements of choice in and around your framed layer.  Add any drop shadows and/or gradient glows you like.
I've used 12, 50, 32, 9 and 13 in my example. 

9.  Crop your tag and resize if necessary.

10.  Add your name, using a font of choice.  I also added a gradient glow and dropshadow.

11.  Add the appropriate copyright and license number if necessary.  I've also credited the scrapkit maker.
And you're done :)
