Let’s Start
Open a new canvas 400 x 400 and flood fill with grey #EBEBEB
Open Ele17 and resize to 300 pixels wide
Copy and paste as a new layer – rename Flower Cluster
Add a drop shadow of choice – I used:
V&H: 2 / Opacity: 50 / Blur: 8.91 / Color: Black / Shadow on new layer: Unchecked

Open Ele24 and resize to 200 pixels high
Copy and paste as a new layer – rename Cage
Position on the left of the Flower Cluster
Add the same drop shadow as used on the Flower Cluster

Open Ele25 and resize to 250 pixels wide
Copy and paste as a new layer – rename Leaves
Image, Free Rotate. 10 degrees to the Right
Move so its sitting below the right side of the Flower Cluster
Add the same drop shadow

Open Ele15 and resize to 250 pixels wide
Copy and paste as a new layer – rename Leaves 2
Image, Free Rotate, 90 Degrees to the Left
Position behind the left side of the Flower Cluster
Add the same drop shadow

Activate the grey background layer
Open Ele29 and resize to 300 pixels wide
Copy and paste as a new layer – rename Mask
Move up slightly so you can see more of the clock

Layers, Load/Save Mask, Load Mask from Disk
Look for Vix_BigMask001 or mask of choice

Rename Mask if needed

Duplicate and on the copy
Adjust, Blur, Gaussian Blur – radius set to 8
Change the blend mode to Overlay

Activate Leaves 2
Copy and paste your tube as a new layer – rename Tube
Resize if needed, I resized to 40%, all layers unchecked
Position in front of the mask where it looks best
Add the same drop shadow
Erase any of the tube you can see from below the Flower Cluster
I selected the area to be deleted

Select your text tool and choose a font – I used Jasmine Regular
Set your foreground to null, background to a color of choice
Create as vector and Anti-Alias checked
Add your name and position where it looks best
When happy, convert to raster
