Open new a 600x600 canvas. Flood fill white.
Select a paper from kwl's kit. I chose grungepaper5. You will need to resize it to 600x600 pixels and paste as a new layer. Apply your mask.
Choose a frame1 from the kit. paste as new layer and duplicate it.
Other elements I chose from the kit are: charm4, element2, element5, flower, frame3, grungepaper1, and any of the ribbons. You can choose the same elements
or different ones
Apply your first tube between the frames to the right of the frames and erase the portions of the top frame that cover the top of the tube so it appears the tube is inside the frame.
Use my tag as a guide for the placement of all your other elements. resize them and get them where you want them.
apply all your other elements. If you chose the ribbons, place it on the left of the frame over the top frame, duplicate it, and mirror. Make sure your tube is in front of your right hand ribbon.
Place your second frame (frame 3) below the tube layer.
add your second paper. grab your magic wand and click inside the frame. SELECTIONS:MODIFY:EXPAND BY 3, SELECTIONS:INVERT. Click on your paper and hit the delete key on your keyboard.
Add your second tube and position it in frame3 to where you want it. repeat the above step, clicking on the tube layer and hitting delete. Lower your opaquacy on your tube to: 55.
