Filters Used

Mura's Meister - Copies

Open a new image 700 x 700. 

Starting with the mask layer C/paste Paper 31 as a new layer. Load mask from disk - fit to layer. In layer palette, delete mask and merge group. Reduce opacity to 80%.

Above mask layer, c/paste element 46 - Frame re sized to 75%. Duplicate, change blend mode of copy to hard light, reduce opacity to 70% and merge down with original frame. Click in centre of frame with magic wand to float. Selections - modify - expand by 10. C/paste paper 7. Invert the selection and hit delete. Select none. Move paper layer below frame, d/shadow frame and merge down.

C/paste element 8 - leaf  re sized to 20%. Apply Mura's Copies - Encircle. (see settings below) Position behind Frame layer and d/shadow.

Above the frame layer C/paste your tube and position to the right. D/shadow. With your tube in place work desired elements from kit around tube and frame layers. D/shadow to your liking. I used ...

 Element 26 - Branch/clocks - 90%. Position behind tube layer.

36- Lantern - 105%. Position on the left side of the frame. Use eraser tool to remove string.

33- Berries/leaves Cluster - 70% - Image - Mirror. Bottom left, behind tube above Lantern.

28 - Small Berries - 30%. Position on left side behind Lantern. Duplicate and mirror copy to right side.

45 - Leaf - 30%. Bottom right, behind tube above Berries.

9 - Flower Scatter - 45%. Position behind Branch/Clocks to the left of tube.

Merge all layers. Crop/re size to your liking. I usually sharpen at this point rather than each separate element as I go along. Adjust - Sharpness - Unsharp Mask 5.0 - 30 -5.
Add name and relevant artist copyright and tube licence info.
Save as Png.
