TWIRLY SPIKY HALO
SIGTAG IN PSP 7
Paint Shop Pro Tutorials by Karen
I made this tag in PSP 8 originally, but have been asked for the same tag in 7.
Although all the settings are the same, the method and resulting tag are slightly different.
This tutorial will show you how to make the tag above.
Before we begin you will need my zipfile... CLICK HERE to download.
Unzip "kktfstrawberries" into your psp 7 tubes folder
and "Budmo Jiggler" into your system fonts if you don`t already have it.
Ready?... let`s create our strawberries tag!
