Let it Snow
I wrote this tutorial on the 9th November 2012 and it is my own idea’s. Any resemblance to another tutorial is purely coincidental and not intended.
For this tutorial you will need a working knowledge of Paint Shop Pro and working with layers.
You will need
Paint Shop Pro – Any version though I am using Psp 9
A tube of choice – I am using the artwork of Keith Garvey you must have a license to use his art. You can find him HERE
Scrapkit-I am using Fantasy Moments Winter Fun which you can find HERE
Mask – I am using Mask 22 by Brutal Designs HERE
Font of Choice or the one I am using Frosty which you can find HERE
Plugins – Vanderlee – Snowscape – Eyecandy Impact – Gradient Glow
Ok Lets begin
Open a new image 600 x 600
