For this tutorial you will need the materials in the zip file below.

Create a folder on your desktop named Come Into Fall's Orb. Unzip the materials zip file into this folder. Place the mask 1250182062_nikita_masqe in your PSP Files/Masks folder. I have used the plugins Graphics Plus/Vertical Mirror, Xero/Fritillary and Bordermania/Ripple in this tutorial as well as effects of the PSP. I used PSP 2020. To work this tutorial, it is assumed you have some working knowledge of Paint Shop Pro.
