Tut: Sweet Summer Beauty

Sweet Summer Beauty

This tutorial was written by me on April 18, 2010 using PSP 9.  All my tutorials assume you have some working knowledge of PSP and/or Animation Shop.

4 Tubes of choice - I'm using the beautiful ladies of Ismael Rac.  Do not use without a license.  You can purchase his tubes and a license at Artistic Minds.

Scrap Kit - I'm using Kreative Designs by Karen's portion of the "Candy Shoppe" store collab from Enchanted Designs Boutique.  You can purchase this beautiful kit here.

Mask - I'm using Floral 3 mask from Vicky.  You can download this mask from Creative Misfits Creations.

Font of choice

Filters : Eye Candy 4000 Gradient Glow

To begin open up your tubes and mask in PSP - minimize for now
