BM--Multiply--Opacity= 80%---move layer below tube layer---DS
22.) Spring Hat--R=10% & 80%--C&P as NRL--Place it on plant--DS--merge visible all layers but background
23.) Paper 1--or of choice--R=23% & 96%--un-sharp mask--C&P as NRL right above background..add a mask of choice---in layer palette--delete mask--yes--un-group layers
24.) Now merge Visible all layers--including background--R=63%--sharpen
25.) Add ALL Copy rights and your name..Save as PNG.
Alternate Background
26.) Instead of using a mask--I used a background to give it the illusion of a forest.--then just Merge Visible All layers--Add all Copyrights and name--then save it as PNG..
