I used the artwork of Martin Abel
You can find his artwork HERE
Tube i used can be found Here
Open canvas set to 650x650
Open filmstrip R/S to 85% C/P onto canvas
Drag down half way to the bottom
Open tube of choice, R/S to 95%
C/P onto canvas, drag on top of filmstrip
As if she's sitting - but kinda hanging off the top
Open chain R/S to 85% C/P onto canvas
Arrange this chain in a rectangle square
Then make a chain go vertical in the middle
then horizontal in the center as well
You should now have 4 seperate frames in chain
You want to erase any extra chain make sure the chains connect
Now place a bottom chain you won't see this but,
it'll be easier to do the next step if they're connected
Using magic wand click inside two frames of choice
Selections - modify - expand by 2 Open paper4 R/S to 60%
C/P onto canvas (twice) drag the papers inside each frame
selections invert, delete (on both), select none now
drag these paper layers below your chains
Do this same step for the other 2 frames using paper 1 R/S to 60%
Now select filmstrip i put an outerglow on this frame
First i did black, then white then added noise D/S
Select your tube layer and do the same thing
i only did white, add noise, D/S apply radiance
Then i went ahead and did the same for the chains
Now click inside filmstrip, selections modify - expand by 3
Add new raster layer - i flood filled gradient of choice
I think mine came with psp. Drag below filmstrip
I then put my tube inside each frame the way i liked
Merged them all (tubes) turned tube to greyscale
changed blend mode to screen - duplicate this layer
should be set to overlay - i also added pixel shade to duplicated layer
Then on my gradient color layer i lowered opacity to 88%
then i added radiance to tubes, settings of choice
I then went ahead and put tube back inside the frames
put them on either corner bottom left, top right
Turned greyscale and applied a heavy radiance
Now it's element time
Elements i used and the resized %

Winged eye - 40%
Skull&Candle - 25%
