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 X1, 
tho' any version should work.

You can find this kit at all my stores. 

Tube: I'm using the gorgeous artwork of Alex Prihodko.

Do NOT use any artwork unless you have a license to do so 
& have purchased or obtained the tube legally.
