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 Simple, Graphics Plus and Tormentia 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 this is a very easy tutorial to do.

Thanks go to Irene and Corinne Vicaire for the tubes used in this tutorial. Please visit the tuber sites listed on my Links page. You will also find many lovely tubes in my all-free Tubes section.
