This tutorial was made in PSP 8.1 but I am sure could be done in any version.
You will need 6 tubes, (please note: all tubes layers are closed on these tubes) the mask 20/20 and a brush all of which are supplied in the zip file.
You can get my zipped file Here
You will also need the Filters penta.com, Graphics Plus and Filters Unlimited 2
Bring up the brush in PSP and go to File, export custom brush, give it a name and hit OK. Bring up the tubes in PSP.

( 1 ) Open a new 600x450 transparent Image. Have your foreground color on #111812 and your background on #B9C2B1. In your foreground make a foreground, background gradient with these settings, Style Linear, Angle 45, repeats 2 and invert checked.

( 2 ) New Layer. Flood fill this layer with your gradient.

( 3 ) Go to the tube SS_634_Misted and resize to 450 in height. Copy and paste as a new layer onto your image. Place to the left.

( 4 ) With your selection tool set to rectangle take a selection off this tube of the ocean, as wide and deep as you can. Copy.
