Lets Get Started....

Open a new image in your psp by going to file tab and select new, choose 500x500 white image, click ok.

Take the operating theatre doors from the kit and paste as a new layer, go to image, select resize and then choose to resize around 50% smartsize and make sure you have the resize all layers box unchecked then click ok, place the doors in the centre of your canvas, add a dropshadow if you wish.

Now take one of the trolley bed elements from the kit and paste this as a new layer, go to image and select resize by 50% again or to whatever suits your tag and click ok, move the bed slightly to the left side of the canvas and add the same dropshadow again if you wish to.

Take the post op drip element and paste as a new layer, go to image and select resize then resize this to your liking and place at the front of the bed, add the dropshadow to this too if you are using dropshadow.

Take the clipboard element now and paste this as a new layer, resize quite small and place so it looks like its hanging from side of the trolley bed then add the dropshadow.

Now take your tube and paste as a new layer, resize around 80% bicubic and click ok, if you are using the same tube as me i placed her so she is leaning over the bed, i added the dropshadow to the tube layer.

Activate the bottom white layer of your canvas and choose a paper from the kit as a new layer then resize around 80% smartsize, now go to layers and choose load mask from disk then look for the mask that we saved at the start which is #145 by Kris and use the following settings :-
Fit to canvas - checked .... Source luminace - checked .... Invert transparency - unchecked .... Hide Mask - checked, click ok, go to layers, merge group.

Open and minimise a different paper from the kit in your psp workspace....

Activate the bottom layer again and grab your rectangle tool then go to the colour palette and set foreground colour to null and background colour choose patterns then find the paper that you just minimised in the patterns tabs, now draw out a large square about the same size as the mask layer shape, go to adjust and select blur, choose guassian blur and set to 20.00 then click ok.

Click back to the top layer now and use any elements you want from the kit to decorate, each element should be pasted as a new layer and resized to your liking, i also added the dropshadow to my elements.

Told you this one was easy lol, and quick.

Now its time to crop or resize if you want to, i didnt on this one.
