Lets Begin

Open a new canvas 750x750(You can resize later)

Open Tube, Resize 518x700px. Copy and paste onto to new canvas.  Place in center.

Open frame 1, copy and paste onto canvas and place it behind tube as in tag.  With the magic wand
click in center of the first frame to your left select it, then go to Selections-Expand 10px.

Open paper 4, copy and paste onto canvas over the frame.  Go to Selections-Invert and then press delete key.  Now drag the paper under frame.
Open paper 3 and do the same with the center frame.  Again Open paper 4 and repeat the same steps with the third frame on your right.

Again with the magic wand click the center of the first frame to your left to select it and again go to Selections-Expand 10px.  Go to the tube, resize it 407x550px.  Copy and paste it onto tag canvas and place over frame so the face stays in the middle. See tag for reference.  Go to Selections-Invert and press delete key and drag the closeup face under frame.  Repeat the same steps for the third frame to your right.  See tag.

Now open elements and start placing them as in the tag.  Resize them anywhere from 40% to 80%.

After all the elements are placed open paper 4 copy and paste and drag it all the way down until is under all the elements.  Open mask, go to Layers/New Mask Layer/From Image, Source Luminance checked, Invert data mask unchecked, find mask, OK.  Go to Layers/Merge/Merge Group then Merge Visible.

Tag is done.   Add your name and credits.  If you would like to show me your work contact me at  I would love to see what you did.
