The elements in this package are stunning! Thank you!

This tutorial was written assuming you have a working knowledge of PSP.

~♥~ Let’s get started ~♥~

Open up the template.

Shift D.

Close out the original.

700 x 700 Pixels


Highlight the background layer.

Delete the following layers:

Credit, LAYERS 10, 9, 8, 7, 5 and 4.

Open Paper 2.


Paste as a new layer at the top of your layers pallet.

Resize 40%

Close this layer out.

Highlight LAYER 1.

Click on it with your Magic Wand.

Highlight the closed-out paper layer at the top of your layers pallet.

Right click your mouse on it.

Choose “Promote Section to Layer”.

Move the promoted layer just above LAYER 1 template layer.

Click the lock icon at the top your layers pallet to lock the layer.

Apply DSB Flux – Tiler:

Match your settings to mine –


Delete the template layer.

Click the lock at the top of your layers pallet to unlock the layer.

Highlight LAYER 2.

Repeat the above step.

Highlight LAYER 3.

Click on it with your Magic Wand.

Duplicate the paper layer and open this layer up by clicking on the eye icon.

Bring it just above LAYER 3 template layer.

Move it into a position you like – I chose the sand are near the middle.

Right click your mouse on the layer and choose “Promote Section to Layer”.

(Delete the duplicated paper layer)

Give the merged layer a slight Inner Bevel:

Highlight LAYER 13.

All 3 small circle template layers should now be on the same layer.

Click on each small circle with your Magic Wand.
