invert- delete. select none. drag below your frame layer.
Clicking the inside of your frame again, this time C/P paper 1, R/S to 60%
selections- invert- delete. select none. drag below frame and tube layer
I did this step once more and i put in close up tube again, filled it, then
changed blend mode to screen, on my paper layer i changed brightness/contrast
B -6, C 8, then i applied i slight radiance on my tube, and scan lines on tube layer
Make sure you merge your paper with your tubes layer (not main tube)
