Supplies Needed:
Scrap kit Aqua Rebel by Scraps by Jessica
Tube of choice, I am using one of Carlos Cartagena purchased from MPT
My Supplies (shells and background image) here
Plugin Alien Skin Splat - Edges (optional)

Okay, ready to start?
Awesome!

Open a new image 700 x 700 with a white background. We will crop later.

Open a paper of choice, paste as a new layer. Go to the plugins and select Alien Skin Splat. Look for the one called Edges, apply this using the following settings:
Edge Width - 40
Margin - 0
Feather Size - 40
Direction - 45
Edge Mode - Halftone Dots
Transparent Fill - checked
Go to Image - Free Roate 5 degrees left.

Open the Papermat, and paste as a new layer. Go to Image - Free Rotate 10 degrees right.

Leave these two layers the way it is for now, we will be coming back to them in a minute.

Open Frame 1 and resize by 90 percent then go to Image and rotate right. Paste as a new layer. Apply a drop shadow.

Okay now we are going to resize the bottom two layer we just added before the frame. Select the papermat and resize around the frame. Allow some of the mat to stick out from below the frame. I used the Pick tool for this but you can just go to resize if you perfer. Do the same for the paper we added the halftone to. Apply a drop shadow to the papermat.

Open and copy the background included in my supplies or use something else you like. Paste as a new layer, move this layer below the frame. Take your Selection tool and draw out a square staying on top of the frame. Once you have this to your liking go to Selections - Invert and hit delete on your keyboard.

Open Wavy Ribbon and resize by 80 percent. Paste as a new layer, position on the right side between the two bottom papers. Apply a drop shadow. Duplicate, rotate right. Position at the top just below the frame.

Open the Staple and resize by 50 percent. Paste as a new layer, position about half way down the frame on the left side. Apply a drop shadow. Duplicate and place this one a little higher up on the right side.

Open and paste your tube as a new layer, resize if needed. Erase anything at the bottom of the frame that is sticking out. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Rope and paste as a new layer. Position in the upper left corner on top of the frame. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Bow 9 and resize by 40 percent. Paste as a new layer. Place right below the knot in the rope. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Bow 7 and resize by 30 percent. Paste as a new layer. Position this one on top of the bow we just added. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Dragonfly and resize by 30 percent, paste as a new layer. Position on top of the rope near the middle. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Flower 5 and resize by 40 percent. Paste as a new layer. Position just above the staple on the right hand side. Apply a drop shadow. Duplicate and place on the left side near the bottom corner. Move flower layers right below the papermat layer.

Open Flower 3 and resize by 50 percent. Paste as a new layer and position below the white flower on the right hand side. They should be overlapping. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Flower 4 and resize by 30 percent. Paste as a new layer. Move this layer above the frame layer. Position at the bottom of the left hand side overlapping the white flower. Apply a drop shadow. Duplicate and place in the upper right corner of the frame.

Open Fastener and resize by 40 percent. Paste as a new layer. Position in the lower left corner of the frame. Apply a drop shadow. Duplicate and place in the upper right corner of the frame.

Open the Shells included in my supplies, paste as a new layer. Position at the bottom of the frame. Apply a drop shadow.
