Any similarity to any other tutorial is purely coincidental
You will need:
Font of choice – I used Toledo, found
Scrapkit is Mini Zen Attitude. This beautiful FTU kit is from Le Monde de Neferwene.
You can download this kit
Tube of choice. I used one by Camilla Drakenborg called Sacred Fay. You can purchase these fantastic tubes from Up Your Art
Mask of choice – I used 0Mask 046
I’m not sure where I got this mask, so if it is yours, please let me know and I will either remove it, or give credit.
You can download this mask.
Open a new raster 605 x 605 and fill white.
Layers – new raster layer.
Selections – Select All. Paste Paper 3 into selection.
Apply mask 0Mask 046
In layers palette, merge group.
Element 50 (water splash) – Resize 42%. Paste above mask layer and slide left. Stretch to top and right.
Element 31 (Frame) – Resize 45% then 90%. Paste above the water splash layer.
Slide down slightly.
Using your pick tool, make frame smaller by dragging the top down by about a quarter the size. The height isn’t really vital, so go with your instincts – you can always adjust it later.
Most of this tag will be created at the bottom of the canvas, so don’t worry if you see a large blank space at the top. It all gets adjusted towards the end.
Click inside the frame with your magic wand. Selections – modify – expand 6.
Layers – new raster layer. Paste Paper 3 into selection.
In layers palette, move paper to sit below frame.
Tube – If using the same one as me, resize 110% twice. Sharpen twice.
Paste above frame. Slide left.
Element 34 (zen bottle) – Resize 15%. Paste above tube layer.
Slide to right and down slightly. Sharpen.
Element 8 (leaf fern) – Resize 35% then 80%
Paste above bottle layer. Slide to bottom right corner.
Element 10 (leaves) – Resize 25%. Paste above fern layer.
Slide down and left.
Element 17 (flowers & leaves cluster) – Flip. Mirror. Resize 30%. Paste above leaves layer. Slide to bottom right corner.
Element 24 (Ribbon) – Flip. Resize 50% then 80%. Paste above element 17 layer and slide to bottom left corner.
Element 19 (candle & flowers) – Mirror. Resize 30% then 70%
Paste above ribbon layer and slide to bottom left corner.

Paste above bubbles layer and slide to bottom right corner.
Element 5 (white flower) –Resize 30% twice.
Paste above element 23 layer and slide to bottom centre.
Sharpen. Duplicate. Resize top copy another 80% and slide left
Add any other embellishments of choice.
Move elements around if you want to.
Close off the bottom three layers (white background, mask and element 50).
Merge visible on all other layers.
Reposition merged layer in centre of tag (Ctrl X then Ctrl V)
Open element 50 and mask layers and merge visible.
