* 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 PTU kit from Tasha's Playground
named Sexy Geek. You can find more info about 
where to find this kit here.
*And get the kit during Tasha's hot 30% off sale.;)

Tube: I'm using the artwork of Alex Prihodko.
You can find more stunning artwork at Pics For Design. 
Do NOT use this artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased or obtained the tube legally.

You can find the template here.
