*NOTES*
Always remember to duplicate your tube and close original
C/P means copy and paste as a new layer Unless otherwise stated
D/s means Drop Shadow
Remember to sharpen after resizing
Resizing is always smartsize
Elements are added with a D/S unless otherwise stated 
And see my finished tag for placement

*Let's Get Started*

Open template, duplicate close original delete credits and layers 6 & 6 copy and raster 12 and copy, Canvas Size 775x550, and floodfill raster 1 layer with white, We can resize later I just like having enough room to work with.

Raster 2 : 
Select all/float/defloat open paper 8 c/p invert/delete/deselect and delete template layer.

Raster 9 : 
*NOTE* we will be using these settings for ALL glitter frame layers
Add noise Uniform/60/Monochrome Checked, sharpen, Keep Raster 9 shadow.

Raster 3 : 
Select all/float/defloat open paper 7 c/p invert/delete/deselect and delete template layer.

Raster 4 & copy : 
Merge together select all/float/defloat open paper 6 c/p invert/delete/deselect and delete template layer.

Raster 5 :

Merged Layer :

Open tube c/p resize if your using the same one I resized by 40% duplicate Guaddian Blur 3.00 and change the blend mode to Overlay and add d/s to original tube layer.


Time to add the elements I used the following
Dolphins - 45%
Fish 4 - 30%
Plant 7 - c/p duplicate erase half on one layer and then the opposite part on the original layer and arrange behind the Mermaid.
Sand 2 - move under the Mermaid
Shells 1 - 50%
Anchor - 25% rotate with pick tool
Lobster - 25%
Bubbles - 55%
Add anymore elements you wish and a dropshadow to each.
When your happy with your tag close off your white background layer and merge visable resize by 95% all layers UNCHECKED.
Select all Add new layer open paper 7 c/p into selection apply mask/merge group  resize by 105%.
Merge visable then resize as desired.
