Psp tutorial: Winter Is Fun!

This tutorial is entirely my own idea. The scenery tube was created by Corinne Vicaire. Her tubes could be found here.

The Ice and Snow tubes was created by Guismo. You can find her tubes here.  

The other tubes are created by me, so please leave the layers intact. The tubes can always be used for personal stuff, you only have to ask permission first if you would like to use them in a tutorial.

This tutorial will be written in English.


I've made this tutorial in PSP X2, but can be made in other PSP versions as well. Don't forget to save your work from time to time. 

Rain Clouds (misted) tube - here.
Winter Fashion Woman 2 tube - here.

Download the other materials here.
Place the tubes, masks, etcetera in the right folders.
