Here we go!
Open new image, 500x500, floodfill background with white.
Open metal frame, copy and paste as a new layer, resize to your liking, mirror image.
Open paper 1, Select inside of frame with magic wand, expand by 10 (make sure you get inside the left side), add new layer, floodfill with paper 1, add new layer, floodfill with black, select none, move both layers underneath frame layer. Drop opacity on black layer to 54.
Open drape, copy and paste as a new layer, arranging over the frame, duplicate, mirror.
Open both ivys, copy and paste, rotate 90 degrees, both will need resized, make sure to mirror one of them.
Open all the goodies that you want to add, copy and paste each as a new layer, resizing and rotating as you go.
Open your tube or image of choice - Copy and paste, arrange and resize to your liking. For this tube I duplicated, changed blend mode to multiply,added gaussian blur of 4, and lowered the opacity to 52, only drop shadowed the bottom layer.
At this point, I usually resize if I need a smaller image. I also save both the original size and the smaller size images.
Add a new vector layer for your text,convert to raster layer. To make it stand out, use could use either Eye Candy Gradient Glow or duplicate the layer, convert bottom layer to raster, select all, use magic wand to select text, expand by 2, floodfill with colour of choice.
Go back through to sharpen and add a drop shadow to your layers.
Add your copyright as the finishing touch.
