This tutorial was written by me on the 30th September 2013 and is purely my own idea, any resemblance to other tutorials is purely co-incidental and not intended.
For this tutorial you need to have a working knowledge of layers.
 
What you need:-
Paint Shop Pro, I am using psp9 but any psp will work.
Tube of choice, I am using the awesome artwork of Arthur Crowe. You need to have a license to use his work which you can get HERE.
Scrapkit of choice, I am using a scrapkit called Zombie by Kittz creations which you can download HERE.
My Zombie template which you can download HERE
Font of choice, I am using Seven Monkeys Fury.
Mask of choice, I am using 157 by Cat at Insatiable dreams which you can get HERE.
Plugin’s:-
Eye Candy 4000 – Gradient Glow
Tramage – Tow the Line
 
Ok lets begin.
 
1.    Open my template Shift D and delete the original. Delete the TOU layer.
 
2.    Go to the bottom of the template and Open paper 7, Layers load mask from disc and find 157 insatiable dreams. Load the mask, delete mask layer then merge group.
