This tutorial was made in PSP 8.1 but I am sure could be done in any version.
You will need the filters Richard Rosenman 3D Sphere Generator which you can get Here and Filters Unlimited 2Filters Unlimited 2 which you can get Here The mask 20/20 which is supplied in the zip file. You can get my zipped file Here. Of course if you wish to use your own tubes please do. For this Image I used 4 tubes a scene pic and a text brush or write your own text. Place the mask in your masks folder. First of all bring up in PSP the yesterday-today-tomorrow brush and go to file export, custom brush, name it 'yesterday-today-tomorrow' and hit OK. Then bring up in PSP all the tubes I supplied in the zip file or your own.
