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 2 duplicate and close original then image canvas size 725x725 add new layer and send to the bottom floodfill with white and delete the mask layer as we will be adding a different mask.
Open your rectangle selection tool and make a selection over the frame open paper 15 c/p resize by 75% arrange invert/delete/deselect and move below your frame.
Open tube I used the closeup c/p arrange above raster 3 resize by 95% duplicate guassian blur 3.00 and change the blend mode to overlay and lower the opacity to 60% add d/s to original tube layer.
~Time to add the elements I used the following~

Open 125 - c/p arrange below raster 4
Open 136 - c/p arrange above raster 3
Open 163 - c/p resize by 65% and arrange above raster 9
