Items you will need to complete this project:
The Destiny taggers kit by Gothic Inspirations. This is a PTU kit which may be purchased at the Gothic Inspirations store.
Tube of choice. I am using psp12793-Piper by Alex Franco. You must have a license to use this tube, which may be purchased at MyPSPTubes.com.
Wee Scots Lass mask #83 which you can download HERE.
Font(s) and/or alpha of choice. I am using Trebuchet MS which is a windows system font, and the Goth Chic alpha by Whispy's D'zines, which is a FTU alpha that may be downloaded from her blog.
Note that H# and V# refer to Horizontal and vertical coordinates on your canvas grid. Make sure you have View, Rulers checked in order to see the ruler grid.
When I say "Add to your canvas" I expect that you will copy and paste it as a new layer, unless otherwise state in the tutorial.
This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP. It was written using PSP X1, but should work in PSP 8 and up.
Open a new raster layer canvas, 800 x 800 pxls, flood filled white.
Open Paper2-GI_Destiny. Go to layers --> load/save mask --> load mask from disk and locate Wee Scots Lass mask #83. Make sure the fit to canvas box is checked, then click on load.
