Used a tube to make the "Tubes" banner. To get the letters I wanted, I opened the tube as an image in PSP8, then copied each letter that I wanted and pasted it as a new image. Then I opened a new image and copied and pasted each letter into it.

LAYERED IMAGE

I need a lesson on Screen Capture. I have always had trouble with it in the past, but I have used it once in a while. Now with PSP8, I cannot make it work at all to make a screen capture of the layer palette

I took pictures of some day-lilies outside this morning, and used some of them for my layered graphic. I have copied merged and pasted as new image of different layers.

My original bottom layer was missing a corner in the lower right, so I added another layer and put it under it. This layer I floodfilled green. Both these layers have the effect Weave on them.

I tubed the lily and used two different sizes of it.

The first original back ground layer The layer added under neath Those two layers combined

Added a smaller version of the lily tube The large tube added, and the picture is complete
