Tutorial by Jcuttlebear01 aka JoAnn

I do these tutorials for fun and not
for any profit. I use them also as a learning tool to
help others learn the fun and art of paint shop pro.
Everything I use I have collected or bought and I
 don't claim to have
made anything other then the tag.
All graphics I use the copy write stays with the
original artist.

All settings will remain the same unless otherwise noted
This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP

Remember to save often in case your psp crashes.
I did this in PSP 9 but sure any one will work.

I'm using the darling kit called Spring harmony it
is the great work of Tiny Turtle designs.
