Unzip the materials into a working folder you have created on your desktop named Tip Toe through the Tulips. Please duplicate and close original tubes using the copies for your work so you will not lose the originals. Place Selection in your PSP/Selections folder. Place the Pattern in your PSP Files/Patterns folder. Place the Geometric10 brush in your PSP Files/Brushes folder. Place the ArasimagesTipToe.f1s into the Alien Skin/Eye Candy 5 Impact/Settings/Glass folder. OR...simply click on the ArasimagesToe.f1s file in materials and it automatically goes where it should be. It is assumed you have a working knowledge of PSP to follow these directions. The plugins Penta/color dot, Mystic Nights/Buttonize, Mura'sMeister/Perspective Tiling, Graphics Plus/Cut Glass and Eye Candy 5/Impact/Glass have been used, all other effects are those of PSP itself. I have used PSP2018 for this tutorial but other versions may be used.
