Plug ins Used

Mura's Copies - Encircle

Open a new image 700 x 700.
From kit c/paste frame 4 and position centre of canvas.
Re size 115 %. 
Duplicate and change blend mode of top copy to screen. Merge down. (Repeat)
Using magic wand tool click in centre of frame to float the inner.
Selections - Modify - Expand by 2.
C/paste paper 8 re sized to 90%. Move below Frame.
Selections - Invert - Delete.
Select none. D/shadow frame and merge down.

From kit c/paste Element Grass 3 re sized to 65%.
Position along bottom of Frame. Duplicate, merge down.
Above Grass 3, centre bottom of frame c/paste Element Mushrooms 2. D/shadow.

C/paste your tube to the left of the canvas/frame and d/shadow.
If like me your using a half tube, position above the frame behind the grass to disguise where the tube ends.

C/paste element Tree 2 re size to 75%. Position bottom right of canvas behind Frame. Duplicate and mirror copy to left. Merge down, use eraser tool to remove tree stumps and reduce opacity to 80%.

C/paste Element Flower 1. Re size to 50 %. Position bottom right of canvas behind Mushrooms 2. Duplicate and mirror copy to left. Move behind tube. D/shadow.

Continue to add desired elements from kit and d/shadow to your liking. I used...

Flower 2 - 20%. Bottom right behind Mushrooms above Flower 1. Duplicate and move copy up slightly behind Flower 1.

Flower 7 - 25%. Bottom left behind Mushrooms above Flower 1. Duplicate and move copy up slightly behind Flower 1.

Egg Tree - 85%.  Top of canvas. Above Frame, behind tube layer.

Butterflies - 85%. Left of canvas above Egg Tree, behind tube layer.

Frame 2 - 85%. Top left behind Frame.

Chick - 30 %. Bottom of canvas. Above Mushrooms.

Egg 2 - 60%. Bottom right behind Grass above Frame.

Egg 5 - 80%. Rotate left by 21. Bottom left above Frame behind tube/flowers.

Egg 6 - 35%. Rotate right by 40. Bottom of canvas behind Chick.

Grass 1 - 75%. Apply Mura's - Copies - Encircle (settings below) Position at bottom of layer palette behind all other layers. Run eraser tool along bottom of tag to remove any Pink  that shows beneath Green Grass.

Flower 7 - 50 %  Again apply the Copies - Encircle. Same settings but adjust amount to 14.
Position above Grass 1 behind Frame and use eraser tool to neaten along bottom.

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.
Thank you for stopping by and trying this tutorial. I hope you are pleased with your tag. Sal xoxo
