Rough Seas

For an Italian and Danish translation, 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 plugin VM Instant Art/Origami Folder. 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 to do this tutorial.

Thanks go to Suzi Sgai Tubes, Benelol and Arasimages 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.
