I am using the art of Armando Huerta Unforunately he's no longer selling.
But i also did this tutorial with a FTU tube by Ismael Alvarez find the tube HERE

Check out the bottom of the tutorial for the Alternative tag. :)

*might be slightly difficult*

Let's open the a frame i used a 3 circled frame. i resized it down, i select the frame itself  selections> modify> expand by 2 or 3, add a new raster layer floor fill color of choice. i choose  white. select none. not drag this below your frame. add noise. now using your magic wand click inside each frame modify> expand by 6, i then copied and pasted my paper of choice. invert>delete none. select none. drag paper layer below frame. with paper layer selected. selections all> float> defloat> now copy and paste your close up tubes of choice. i kept pasting tubes inside the frame using the drag tool until i liked where they were. now selections> invert ON each tube layer hit delete. select none. drag tube layers below frame and make sure it's below your white noise layer too.

Hide your frame, paper layer, and the white flood fill layer. merge your tubes together. adjust> go to hue and saturation> colorize> both dials set at zero. unhide your paper layer. change your tubes blend  mode to overlay now merge only the black and white tubes to your paper frame. i then dplicated this layer and changed blend mode to multiply. this is optional. i then unhide the other 2 layers. i added  sharp to my original frame layer about twice since it blured the glittery effect abit. not go to your  photo tools - gradient sky using the settings below. or a setting of choice. these settings just  looked good on my images. now apply color dot settings of choice i made mine very dim but you can  still kinda see the dots. i also added radiance slightly. this is of course optional.
Photo Tools - Gradient Sky Settings
Hide your tubes/paper merged layer. and it should be your frame and the floor fill layer only. if you didnt do so before add noise to the white layer. merged these two, add drop shadow not unhide the rest. Now using your text tool with a pixelette font. i typed out "sexy sea goddess" using white text. layers> convert to raster layer. i then cut the text off my image then pasted it back. This puts the text right in the middle. then using your Mura meister - copies plugin. Preset menu set on tiling,  other settings of choice usually only have to edit the tile gap to space out abit.once you've got it  how you like go back and select the tubes layer.
Selections all> float> defloat> while this is selected i want you to jump down to your text layer now go back to selections? invert>delete on the text layer. selections none. drag text layer below your  frame layer but sitting on top of your tubes i changed the blend mode to overlay and added a slight drop shadow. Phew. i hope i didn't confuse you.... Now merge everything together. Now it's time to add the elements. I used the sand, waves 1, fish 1, flower 1 and 2, frame 2, paper2, net1,  sand dollar, seaweed, shell 2 and 3, both star fishes. water drops.
Before placing the elements. i want you to paste your main tube of choice. i used a sexy mermaid, i gave her some radiance and a drop shadow and placed her off to the side of the frame. now  resize these elements down, adding drop shadows place them where you want them to go. or use my tag as a guide...

Now add your copyrights, add your name and save as a png and  you’re done!
