Puurrrfect

For Italian and Danish translations, click on the flags.

 

For Materials, click on the Zip file.

Unzip the materials into a working folder. Open the materials in PSP, copy and close originals. You will need Filters Unlimited, Simple and Toadies/Plain Mosaic Blur plugins to do 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 although you may find the tutorial is written in detail.

Thanks go to Karen, Leny's Designs and Arasimages for the tubes used. Please visit the tuber sites listed on my Links page. You will also find many lovely tubes in my Tubes section.
