Font of choice (I'm using A Red Bucket)
Open a new canvas 650 x 650 (resize later)
Flood fill white, new raster layer, select with magic wand, copy & paste paper10 into selection, select none, apply mask.
Copy & Paste frame1 as a new layer, resize 65%.
Copy & Paste photo of choice, resize to your liking, move below frame.
Merge frame and photo only visible.
Copy & Paste frame4 as a new layer, resize 65%, see my tag for placement, you will want to use the eraser tool to erase the left side of the frame so that it looks like the chain is hanging onto the frame1 layer. Merge this layer with the framed photo layer. You may want to move this layer upward just a bit.
Copy & Paste button2 as a new layer, resize 50% twice then again 65%, add drop shadow, place top right corner of frame.
Copy & Paste ribbon2 as a new layer, resize 65%, place at the bottom of the frame, add drop shadow.
If you have the goose/geese and want to apply it/them then you may do so now, resizing to your liking and placing at the top of the frame. If you don't have it, this kit has several items to choose from that you could use instead.
Copy & Paste flowerbunch2 as a new layer, resize 50% then 65%, place to the left bottom of the frame, duplicate, free rotate 8 degrees left,duplicate,mirror, then bunch them all together.
Copy & Paste grass2 as a new layer, resize 75%, see my tag for placement, I duplicated about 4 times, stacking each layer on top of the other.
Copy & Paste fire as a new layer, resize 50% then again 70%, place toward the bottom left of the canvas. see my tag.
Copy & Paste bench as a new layer, resize 65%, move to the right of the canvas.
Copy & Paste your tube as a new layer, resize to liking and place on bench.
Copy & Paste flower3 as a new layer, resize 50% twice then again 85%, place at the bottom of the bench.
You're almost done.....Resize your canvas if you'd like. I resized mine 77%.
