I used the artwork of Oky Draft Dolls

Tube i used can be found HERE
Image- canvas size 620x620
Open element 63, C/P onto canvas drag down near bottom
Open tube R/S if needed, C/P onto canvas drag on top wood
Duplicate and arrange the wood how you like, give it a bigger area
Open element9 R/S to 60% C/P onto canvas, drag in the middle behind wood
Select sharpen tool and slighty sharpen the words "saloon"
Open tube R/S if needed i did to 35%, C/P onto canvas, drag on top wood
Apply drop shadow of choice or use my settings: 1, 7, 66, 5, color black
Open element26, R/S to 50%, C/P onto canvas drag to the right
Line up the fence pole to the right up to the wood flooring
Now using your deform tool i smooshed the left side of the fence
pulled it towards the right, I wanted it to line up with the saloon
in the background, you don't want it covering the front of the door
Duplicate and mirror and place it behind your tube
still lining up that pole to the edge of the wood (optional)
Now it's element time
