*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


Ok this will be a fairly quick tutorial but just as fun I hope
We will be using a ready made cluster and adding some goodies from the matching kit, so let your imagination run wild, thats always fun :)

*Let's Get Started*
Open Cluster 1 duplicate and close original then  image canvas size 725x725 add new layer and send to the bottom floodfill with white.
Open your freehand selection  tool and select over the top frame c/p paper 17 as a new layer resize by 70% invert/delete/invert again move the mask layer over the paper arrange invert/delete/deselect and move below the frame.
Open tube c/p resize to desired size arrange on top of the tree stump now duplicate guassian blur 3.00 and change the blend mode to soft light and add d/s to original tube layer.
Duplicate Raster 3 2 times and arrange so the grass patch is a bit bigger
Resize Raster 14 by 95% and move to the left of the tag
