Green Fairy

For this tutorial you will need the following:

Paint Shop Pro, I am using PSP X, you should be able to use any version.

Tube of choice, I am using the artwork of  Bits N Bobs, which you need a license to use.  

Scrap kit of choice. I am using  a PTU kit by Bits N Bobs called Back to Nature 

Font of choice, I am using Digs My Hart

Plugins: AAA Frames Foto Frame

Just remember that my choices of papers and elements is just a suggestion, change it up and make it yours! You don't have to follow mine exactly.

Add a drop shadow of your choosing to tubes & elements throughout. I usually use 1, 1, 50, 5 unless otherwise noted.

Let's get started!

BTN23, resize 55%
BTN47 resize 55%
BTN61 resize 60%
BTN10 resize 60%
BTN25 resize 60%
