Select the large square, selections, float, defloat, invert copy and paste paper 10
hit delete. Selections, select none and delete the grey square layer.
Copy and paste the flare, see sample for placement, with the eraser tool, erase the tip of
the flare so it barely sticks up over the square.  Duplicate mirror.
Copy and paste the fishing net, adjust above the rectangle layer just below the flares.
Copy and paste flower 7,8, and 9.  Drag just below the frame and circle layers, see sample
for placement.  Duplicate flower 8 and move to oposite side like example.
Remember to add dropshadows as you go.
below the frame layer copy and paste the barrel and treasure chest.  position to bottom
left side.  copy and paste the lantern, duplicate and change color to a warm yellow/orange
color, adjust, blur, gaussian blur at 20.  Copy and paste the parrot and adjust to top right
side of circle frame.  copy and paste scroll 2, using the pick tool, rotate the scroll as in
example.  Copy and paste the ships wheel. Copy and paste the tube, add dropshadow. Copy and
paste scroll 1 move over the tube hand as the example and lower the opacity of the scroll
until you can see the hand below it, erase only the scroll that is above the hand, so it looks
like the tube is holding the scroll.
Crop and resize.  I resized mine to 500 pixels.  Make sure the DPI
is at 72.  Add your name.  I added a gradient glow to the name on the following settings:
Basic Tab: Glow width 3, Soft corners 25%, Overall opacity 100%
color Tab: using black, drag a second tab to 3/4 accross so there are 2 black tabs.
Add your copyrights for the tube.  Don't forget to add your license number
if using a PTU tube.
Merge visible and save! you're done! Simple and easy. 
I would love to see what you made!
