Unzip the materials into a working folder you have created on your desktop named Winds of Fall. Please duplicate and close original tubes. Use the copies for your work so you will not lose the originals. Place the Mask into your PSP/Masks folder. I have used pluginsPenta/color dot, AP 01 [Innovations]/Mirror both sides, MuraMeister/Perspective and FunHouse/Polar Convergence for this tutorial. I have used PSPX7 for this tutorial but other versions may be used.

Thanks go to Cibi and to Maryse for the beautiful tubes used in this tutorial.
