Forest Friends FTU Tutorial




This tutorial was written by me. Any resemblance to any other tutorial is pure coincidence. Please DO NOT claim this tutorial as your own. It was written in PSP 9 but should be compatible with any version of PSP.


I am using the artwork of Meg Baker. You need a license to use her tubes. You can purchase her tubes at PSP Tube Stop

I am using the FTU kit Forest Keepers by Amy(Gimptastic Scraps)
