Young and Innocent

For a Italian, French or Danish translation, click on the flags.

  

For Materials, click on the Zip file.


Let the hearts help you keep your place along the way.



Unzip the materials into a working folder named Young and Innocent. Open the materials in PSP, copy and close originals. Place the Selections into your My PSP Files/Selections folder. You will use the plugins Penta/Dot and Cross and Texture/Texturizer to do this tutorial. I have used PSPX5 to create this tutorial but you may use an earlier version. It is assumed you have a working knowledge of PSP to follow these directions.

Thanks go to PamelaD of Arasimages for her beautiful tubing of the large heart and flowers and to the various unknown owners/tubers of the images used which were found at free sites on the internet; if any of these are yours, let me know and I will be happy to link and give credit to you by name.
