You will find the original tutorial here :

This tutorial is a personal creation.
Any resemblance with another one would be only pure coincidence.
It is stricly forbidden to modify tubes, to change their name or take off the matermarks,
To present them on your sites or blog,
To share them in groups,
to make a bank of images, or to use them on lucrative purposes.

Thank you Sass for testing Cloclo’s tutorials

Thank you to respect Cloclo’s work and the tubers work.
Don’t hesitate to warn me if you have any trouble with this translation,
and I’ll try to fix the problem as quickly as I can

Material
The main tube is not provided
the tubes provided are licence free
misted landscape - alpha layer (selections included on an alpha channel)
1 mask by Narah - 1 color palette

open all the tubes into PSP and duplicate them. Work with the copies to preserve orignals
open the masks and minimize them to tray
copy / paste mask into the folder « mask » of Corel PSP folder, or open it and minimize to tray (best method)
TIP 1 -> if you don’t want to install a font -->
open it in a software as « Nexus Font » (or other font viewer software of you choice)
as long as both windows are opened (software and font), your font will be available in your PSP
TIP 2 -> from PSPX4, in the later versions of PSP the functions « Mirror » and « Flip » have been replaced by -->
« Mirror » --> image -> mirror -> mirror horizontal
« Flip » --> image -> mirror -> mirror vertical

Filters (plugins) used
Simple

Use the pencil to follow the steps
hold down left click to grab it and move it

Important
Open all images with PSP, duplicate them and close the originals.
Never work with original images.
Cloclo works with PSPXII ; I work with PSP pro 2018
but you can follow the steps with another version of PSP
don’t forget to save your work often

Colors
use the Dropper tool to pick up the colors into your tubes
Cloclo chose these colors

color 1 -> ForeGround color -> #e7e8fb
color 2 -> BackGround color -> # 2f451d
Don't hesitate to change the colors and the blend modes of the layers,
according to your tubes and images

realization

prepare your colors in  the materials palette

open the alpha layer
duplicate, close the original and work with the copy
flood fill with color 2
layers -> new raster layer -> flood fill with color 1
layers -> new mask layer -> from image

layers -> merge -> merge group
layers -> merge -> merge down
layers -> new raster layer
selections -> load selection -> from alpha channel -> selection « Cloclo1 »
prepare a linear gradient in the materials palette

flood fill selection with this gradient
effects -> 3D effets -> drop shadow -> 2 / 2 / 55 / 10 / black
edit -> repat « drop Shadow »

copy / paste as new layer the misted landscape
selections -> invert
DELETE on your keyboard
selections  -> select none
layers -> merge -> merge down
layers -> duplicate
image -> resize -> untick « resize all layers » -> 95%
layers -> duplicate
image -> resize -> untick « resize all layers » -> 95%
layers -> merge -> merge down TWICE --> the three landscape layers are merged together
layers -> new raster layer
selections -> load selection -> from alpha channel -> selection « Cloclo »
flood fill selection with the gradient
effects -> texture effects -> weave / color 2 / white

effects -> 3D effets -> drop shadow -> 2 / 2 / 55 / 10 / black
selections -> select none

layers -> merge -> merge down
highlight the landscape layer -> objects -> align -> center in canvas
highlight top layer

4
layers -> new raster layer
selections -> load selection -> from alpha channel -> selection « Cloclo2 »
flood fill with the gradient
effects -> art media effects -> brush strokes / color 1

effects -> 3D effets -> drop shadow -> 2 / 2 / 55 / 10 / black
selections -> select none
layers -> duplicate
image -> mirror -> mirror vertical
layers -> merge -> merge down
layers -> arrange -> move down twice
highlight bottom layer -> adjust -> blur -> gaussian blur / 45
highlight top layer
copy / paste as new layer the decoration tube
enable the Pick Tool with the following settings to move the tube

layers -> duplicate
image -> mirror -> mirror horizontal
move it as shown on the final result
layers -> merge -> merge down
effects -> 3D effets -> drop shadow -> 2 / 2 / 55 / 10 / black
copy / paste as new layer the flower tube
enable the Pick Tool with the following settings to move the tube

effects -> plugins -> Simple / Top Left Mirror
effects -> 3D effets -> drop shadow -> 1 / 1 / 55 / 10 / black

image -> mirror -> mirror horizontal
move it as shown on the final result (align -> center in canvas)
layers -> merge down three times
copy / paste as new layer the flower tube
move it as shown on the final result
layers -> duplicate
image -> mirror -> mirror vertical
layers -> merge -> merge down
effects -> 3D effets -> drop shadow -> 1 / 1 / 55 / 10 / black
copy / paste as new layer the bird  tube
move it as shown on the final result

image -> mirror -> mirror horizontal
move it downward
enable the Pick tool, and turn the tube as shown on the final result
copy / paste as new layer the bird « oiseau1 »  tube
move it as shown on the final result
