Left in the Fog

For 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. Export the brush into your PSP folder for Brushes. You will need the plugin Xero/Fritillary 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 to do this tutorial although this is not a hard tutorial to do.

Credit is given for materials used when original author is known. Tubes used in this tutorial are from Corinne Vicaire, Sorensen and Arasimages. Thank you ladies for your beautiful work. Please visit the tuber sites listed on my Links page. You will also find many more tubes in my all-free Tubes section.

A big thank you to PamelaD and Evatexas for testing my tutorials for me.
