Tube and close up of Choice. The art I am using is ©Robert Alvarado. In order to use the tube you must purchase it and have the appropriate license to use it from MPT.

I used a gorgeous mini kit by Teresa, which you can download HERE Scroll down, it's right at the bottom of the page, or it is at the time I'm writing this!

Filters - Xero Porcelain and Radiance, Eye Candy 4000 gradient glow

Let's start!

Open a new canvas 700 x 700, floodfill white.

Copy and paste doodle frame 1, re-size 80%. Using your magic wand, click inside the frame, selections modify, expand by 4. Copy and paste paper 5. Selections, invert, delete. Move the paper under the frame layer. Don't deselect yet. Copy and paste your close up tube, and place below your frame layer. Select none. Effects, Xero Porcelain, with the default settings, but change the blue channel to 0. Duplicate. On the copy adjust blur, gaussian blur 3. Change the blend mode to soft light, drop shadow the original.
