who have a good working knowledge of psp.

Template : FOH by Yarrow
Font of choice, I used Angelic War for name and
Bank Gothic for wordart.
Plug in: Mura's Meister - Copies (optional)
Open template and shift D and close out original and delete copyright layers.
Make canvas size larger so you have room to work - just go to Image - Canvas size
and pick a larger size like 700 x 600 or whatever you prefer.
On the background text layer delete this layer and type out your text.
Objects - Align - place in center - convert to raster.
Mura's Meister - Copies
Move the two squares and frames to where you like them or look at my tag for reference.
Select Rectangle Shapes tool and draw out a retangle like I have in middle on my tag.
Convert to Raster and Duplicate this layer - Select All Contract by 8 hit delete.
On the doodle layer move to the right and up and
then duplicate it and flip this layer
and place it however you like.
OK now go to the layer under your word art and using your
magic wand select the outer edge that's the darker color and
add new layer and flood fill with color of choice.
Then go back to original layer and select it and add new layer then
flood fill it with color of choice and hide original layer. Make sure this layer is under the frame layer we just made.
Your going to do this same thing for all the frames as well but when you
select them before you add new layer and flood fill with color you need to go to selections - modify - smooth by 10.
Once you have all three frames the color you like them apply a inner bevel
Select square layer and float then invert and paste image
how you like it and hit delete.
Continue to other square and do same thing.
On the rectangle layer I used the image supplied iwith my tube
the pasted the tube as well so it was stickingout of frame.
You may need to resize tube to size image is.
I resized mine by 78%
I also added the feathers and resized them too.
Add name - I used #751f0c and #8e412d for mine.
Add drop shadow to layers.
Add copyright info.
You are done!
