This tutorial was made in PSP X2 but I am sure could be done in any version. You will need 2 tubes, a frame & a pic which are supplied in the zip file.
You can get my zipped file Here
Please Note: All Layers Are Turned Off On Tubes.
Place the frame in your PSP frames folder. Bring the tubes & the pic up in PSP.
Take this arrow with you to keep your place in this tutorial.

( 1 )Bring up blend33-pic and convert it to a raster layer.

( 6 ) With your Push Tool set to size 16, Hardness 0, Opacity 100, go to your promoted selection layer and push the color behind the guy so the pattern disappears. (see my image)

( 7 ) Back to the top layer. Image Picture Frame and find the frame I supplied in the zip file with these settings checked, Frame canvas & Frame outside of the image. Hit OK.

( 8 ) Copy the tube forbidden-love-tube and paste as a new layer onto your image. Place her to the very bottom and to the right (see my image) so she is against the frame at the edge. (This tube is one I have modified with a filter which is a pay for filter. The original is in the zip file.)

( 12 ) In PSP click on your font tool and find it in the drop down menue. Set the size to 30 and create as vector. Have your background on #000000 and write Forbidden. Convert to a raster layer and apply this dropshadow. V-5, H 0, Opacity 70, blur 5 and color #000000. Now do the same with the word Love and apply the same dropshadow.
