My Heart's Desire

For a Danish translation, click on the flag.

For Materials, click on the Zip file.

You will also need some items from the free Scrap Kit called Honey Suckle Rose, so download the kit from HERE

Unzip the materials from both sites into a working folder. Open the materials in PSP, copy and close originals. Place the Font Aurora Script in your Fonts Folder. You will need the filter Simple/Top Left Mirror for this tutorial. I have used PSPX3 to create this tutorial but you may use an earlier version. It is assumed you have a working knowledge of PSP.

Thanks go to Sabre for her beautiful free graphics in the Scrap Kit and to Sorensen-Designs for the beautiful lady tube used. Please visit the tuber sites listed on my Links page.
