Always look at tag for reference.

Lets Begin

 Open a new canvas 750x750px (You can resize later).

 Open paper 5 and go to back to the new canvas, go to the ellipse tool and choose the circle, in the material palette go to patterns, look for paper 5, and draw a circle about the size you see in tag then go to Layers/Covert to Raster go to Selections/Select All/Float/Defloat.

 Go to the tube, do not resize the tube yet, copy and paste it as a new layer then position it as in tag, go to Selections/Invert then delete.  Lower the oppacity
   to 31.

 Now go back to tube resize it to fit the new canvas, copy, paste and place it to the right as in tag.

 Open element 37.  Resize 350x256px.  Copy and paste.  Place to your left as in tag.
