This tutorial is borne from my own manipulated lil' mind.

This tutorial was written for those who have a working 
knowledge of PSP and was written using PSP XI, 
tho' any version should work.

You can find this kewt tube at ART.
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased the tube.

named Diva. You can find this in the ART store here.
