You will need VM natural/sparkle , Randy Souders Castle,

My glitter pattern, which I will post at the end of tutorial
I think it would be a good idea to name your layers as you will be duplicating some of them

Open a new canvas 400 x 400 transparent, (re-name background)
Selections / select all, Flood fill with glitter pattern
Selections / modify / contract by 6
New layer, re-name blue, flood fill with #1e2969
Select none.
New layer, View rulers,

With selection tool, set to Circle, Add(shift), feather 0, anti alias checked, Draw a circle, like this

View Rulers to turn them off.
Copy / paste your Randy Souders image, Into selection.
New layer, Effects / 3D effects / cutout, these settings

New layer, add cutout again, changing horizontal and vertical to minus
Hide background and blue layers, merge other 3 layers visable, re-name circle.
(Remember, this layer can be re-sized or moved if you wish )
Turn other layers back on
Add layers for your text, copyright and watermark
Hide background, blue and circle layers, merge visable others, re-name text
This is what we have

Highlight background layer and duplicate 3 times for a total of 4
Your copy 3 should be highlighted
Ajust / noise, these settings

Hide that layer and highlight copy 2
Add noise same as before but change speed to 35%
Hide that layer and highlight copy
Add noise, same as before but change speed to 20, Hide that layer
Highlight your "Blue" layer, Duplicate 3 times for a total of 4
Copy 3 should be highlighted
Effects / plugins / VMnatural / sparkle, these settings

Hide that layer and highlight copy 2
Apply sparkle again, changing random seed to 125
Hide that layer and highlight copy
Apply sparkle again, change random seed to 210
Hide that layer and highlight original blue
Apply sparkle again, change random see to 95
Hide all background layers and all blue layers
Merge all others visable, re-name top
You should have 1 top layer, 4 blue layers and 4 background layers
Have the Top layer highlighted.
Unhide the original blue layer and the original background layer
Merge visable, save as 1 PSP image
Hit the undo arrow
Hide original blue layer and originasl background layer
