This tutorial  is written with PSP15 but can also be made with other PSP versions.

Plugins:

  • Filters Unlimited 2.0

  • &<BKg Designer sf10 I> - Circus Maximus  - * Import into Filters Unlimited

  • Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 - Impact - Perspective Shadow

 

Preparations:

In PSP 14 & 15 there is no option for Image - Mirror & Image -  Flip. There is a new option but this does not give the same result except when the tube/image covers the whole image from side to side. There is a easy way to add the old Mirror and Flip options to the Image Menu. I have written a tutorial you can find it HERE

  • Copy the selection files to the Selections folder of PSP

  • Open the mask files in PSP and minimize to tray

  • Double Click on the Eye Candy Presets, they will be imported automatically

  • Make sure your Script Palette is visible

 

Used Colors

 

Materials:

  • Tube for background by Kitty from A&K Tubes unlimited. She shares her great tubes HERE

  • Flower Tube by Crealine Graphics

  • Mask "@nn_310712_mask_127_tdstudio" by @nn from TD Studio. www.tdstudio.be

  • Mask "purple_masque_2" by unknown author
