**After you use each element close it so you have a clean workspace.

Okay, let’s get started!

*Open a canvas 600 x600 flood fill white. I like to have this layer so I can see my creation better as I work on it.  We will delete this later as well as well as resize.
*Paste Element_33 as a new layer, go to effects, texture, Mosaic Glass with these settings:

Photobucket
Blur with these settings:
Average, Aperture 5, move it slightly down.  Return to the upper layer.
*Paste Element_15 (Heart With Fangs) as a new layer, use my tag for reference. Follow the same directions as above for drop shadow, then return to your top layer.
*I have included this overlay if you are not comfortable using the change to target tool.  I would encourage you to try it before using mine.  How I did it was I put the target color to #00000 and carefully colored the heart portion of the element, it’s really easy but does take about 10 mins to do so.  If you do it on your own simply select my words and put on the desired location.

Font FTU Hawaii Killer 150 by HERE

We will be using:
Tube ML0002 Ariadne
V_Frame2 resized 458 x 471 (uncheck Keep Aspect Ratio)
V_TS paper3
V_net5   @ 55%
V_waves1 @ 50% flipped, opacity 80%
V_flowers1 @ 25%
V_Bow6 @ 50%
V_Shell 1 @ 35%
V_shell2 @30% rotate 70 left
V_shell3 @ 25%

**After you use each element close it so you have a clean workspace.

Okay, let’s get started!

*Open a canvas 600 x600 flood fill white. I like to have the white so I can see my creation better as I work on it.  We will delete this later as well as resize.
*Get
V_Frame2 and paste as a new layer. Resize to 458 x 471 (uncheck Keep Aspect Ratio) Move up slightly.
*Copy V_TS paper3, Go to your white layer and paste as a new layer.  Position so the  pattern you like shows through.  Make a square selection that extends outside of the frame opening, invert, delete, select none.
*Return to the frame layer with V_net5  resize to 55% and position to the left so a bit over hangs the outer portion of the frame.
*Copy your tube, paste as a new layer resize 90%, position so the cut-off portion of the tail is flush with the top of the frame.
*Paste V_Waves1 as a new layer,  resize to 50%, flip, bring to the bottom of the frame, position so the dip frames the face, I also used the tool set on free and stretched it a tad to the left to have the desired fit, you will have to play with this setting, please see my tag for reference.  With your square selection tool, select the desired portion so all is flush with the frame except on the bottom where you need it to extend, invert, delete, select none, lower opacity to 80.
*Go back to the tube layer, paste V_flowers1 as a new layer and resize 25% position on the bottom left of the frame.
*Paste V_Bow6  as a new layer, resize 50%, and position on the upper right of the frame so it looks that the string part of the “fish” is attached.
*Paste V_Shell1 as a new layer, resize 35%, position on the lower left of the frame.
*Add V_shell2 as a new layer, resize 30%, rotate Left 70, position above the other shell covering the hair on the right side.
*Paste V_shell3 as a new layer resize 25%, position to the left of the other shells a bit lower.
*Return to your white layer, copy from your tube the layer, bonus (b) paste as a new layer. 
*Make sure everything is where you like it, check for any stray pixels and remove them, then delete the bottom white layer, merge visible, select all, float, crop to selection, and resize to 90%. 

*Apply your copyright, url, and license number.
*Add names, using
Hawaii Killer, using #d1dfac  and #577679, I added very slight black drop shadow.
*Save as a PNG, you are done, YAY
