Come back to Me

For an Italian, French and Danish translation, click on the flags.

  

For Materials, click on the Zip file.


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



Unzip the materials into a working folder named Come back to Me. Open the materials in PSP, copy and close originals. Export the Geometric10 brush into your PSP/Brush folder. You will use plugin Simple/Top Left Mirror, Xero and The Plugin Site/Hypertyle for 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 Irene; to Devilinside 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.
