Always remember to duplicate your tube and close the original
C/P means copy and paste as a new layer
D/s means Drop Shadow
Remember to sharpen after resizing
Resizing is always smartsize
*Let's Get Started*
Open template Shift+D close original, delete credits and overlay strip layer, Image Canvas size 650x650 then floodfill your background layer with white, we can crop later i just like enough room to work.
Rectangle 1 : Select all/float/defloat open paper 3 c/p resize by 60% invert/delete/delete template layer, add fat white gradient glow width 3.00 and add a 3rd tabe and make that a dark blue from your kit.
Rectangle 2 : Select all/float/defloat open paper 1 c/p resize by 70% invert/delete/deselect/delete template layer, add same gradient glow you used before.
Circle back : Select all/float/defloat expand by 4 add new layer and floodfill with the same dark blue you used in the gradient glow, deselect.
Circle : Select all/float/defloat move back to your floodfilled layer and tap the delete key we have just made a frame, we will come back to that later,
Back to the Circle layer add a mew layer open paper 2 c/p into selection open tube c/p arrange inside the circle when your happy invert/delete/deselect, lower the opacity to 15 then apply blinds with the following settings
Width - 8
Opacity - 20

Light from top and horizontal - Both checked
Add a slight d/s and delte template layer.
Now back to the frame we made : Move it above your circle and tube layer add noise Random/50/Monochrome Checked and add d/s.

I Used :
Clouds : 55%
Wordart 1 : 65% add same noise as you did for the frame then a fat white gradient glow but dont add a 3rd tab, d/s and position.
Moon 1 : 60% mirror
Stars 1 : 65% mirror and arrange over yout tube and circle layer
Stars 2 : 45% duplicate then 80% arrange
Add anymore elements you wish and add dropshadow of choice to all your elements and template layers
When your happy with your tag close off your white background layer and merge visable resize if needed.
