This tutorial was made in PSP 8.1 but I am sure could be done in any version. For this tutorial you will need this zipped file which you can get Here. Of course if you wish to use your own tubes, I used 3 tubes, and a graphic. Place the texture blend8-tut in your texture folder and the mask in your masks folder. Open the tubes and the jpg file in PSP.
