FTU- Gonna Be A Rock Star!


* Click for bigger

This tutorial is borne from my own manipulated lil' mind.
Any similarity to any other tutorial(s) is purely coincidental.
This tutorial was written for those who have a working
knowledge of PSP and was written using PSP X2,
tho' any version should work.

Supplies Needed:
Scrapkit: I'm using a FTU kit from Kittz Kreationz
named rock star. You can find this kit, here.

Tube: I'm using the artwork of Jose Cano.
You can find this & more of his fab artwork at SATC.
Do NOT use any artwork unless you have a license to do so
& have purchased or obtained the tube legally.

Template: Template-201 from Kristin at Toxic Desirez.
You can find the template here.

Mask: music mask 2 (Vicky) at the Creative Misfits.
Find the pack with the mask here.

Filters: Xenofex 2- Constellation
DSB Flux- Linear Transmission
MUra Meister- Copies
Eye Candy 4000- Gradient Glow

Fonts: Acid Label (or font of choice): for the text
Carolina: for the name
(I used bold for my example)

Drop shadow: 2 2 50 4, black.
