This tutorial was written by myself. This tag is my own idea and creation.
Any similarity to any other tutorial or tag is co incidental.
Please read my tutorial basics (located top left sidebar) before you begin.

Supplies Needed
Ftu scrap kit 'Autumn day' by Zaza @  Scrap And Tubes
Tube of choice. I have used the wonderful artwork of Kajenna @ Pics For Design
Word art by me HERE
Font used Atlantic Cruise.

No filters.
Open a new image 700 x 700.
From kit copy/paste element 14 Frame resize to 60%.
Using magic wand tool click in centre to float the inner.
Selections - Modify - Expand by 3.
C/paste  Paper 1 resize to 50%. Move behind frame in layer palette.
Selections - Invert - Delete. Select none.
Go back to frame. Duplicate. Change blend mode on top copy to Multiply then merge layer down. D/shadow the frame then merge down with paper layer.

C/paste and position your tube at this point. It will help with the placement of the elements. I positioned slightly off centre more toward the left of the frame.

From kit C/paste Element 16 Red Flower. Position behind the frame bottom right of the canvas. Duplicate and mirror copy to the left. Merge down and d/shadow.
Behind this layer C/paste Element 49 Wreath resized to 50%.
Position bottom left of canvas. Slightly lower than previous layer. Again duplicate. Mirror copy to right and merge down.

C/paste element 46 yellow flower cluster. Resize to 50%. Position behind the frame at the top right of the canvas. Duplicate. Mirror the copy to left. Duplicate again and place the third copy top centre in between the other copies. Merge all 3. 
C/paste the word art and position above this layer.

C/paste Element 9 Flowers/basket. Resize to 50%. Position on the left above the frame, behind your tube. Duplicate mirror copy to right. Merge down. D/shadow.

C/paste Element 41 Birdhouse. Resize to 80%. Place on the right above Flower/basket, behind tube layer. D/shadow. On top of the Birdhouse sit Element 23 Bird resized to 25%. Mirror. D/shadow.

Bottom right of canvas above the Birdhouse c/paste Element 27 Berries. D/shadow.
Then above this layer still bottom right of the canvas place element 15 Mushrooms resized to 50%. D/shadow.

Place Element 17 Branches centre of canvas behind your tube.

Element 24 Acorns resized to 25%. Position bottom left above tube layer.

Merge all layers. Crop 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
