Ct Tutorial for Moonshine Dezinez


Tutorial: Book of Spells

Scrap Kit: Book of Spells
This kit is an exclusive kit for DAH (Digital Art heaven)

This tutorial was written by me (Marie's Designs) on May 30, 2016 and is my own creation. I ®reserve all rights to tutorial. Please do not claim as your own. Any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental. I used PSP X 3 to write this tutorial but it should work fine in other versions. This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP
Legend:

I try to write my tutorials as plain and clear as possible, but if I get you confused (and, if I do, I am sorry) you can always refer back to the image we are making for reference. Also, this is just a guideline (I write where I place the elements ) but, feel free to move them around, or add different elements. Have fun and experiment, it is the best way to learn new things.
