Color palette :
If you work with your own colors, make your own color palette with the alpha channel,
so you can easily switch between your colors.

There are color differences in the different versions of Psp.
Therefore, use the html codes of the color palette to be sure,
that you have the same colors. Also when merging layers, there may be color differences.

THE TUTORIAL

When working with your own colors, play with the Blend Mode and/or Opacity at your own discretion

From now on I use the terms "MIRROR" and "FLIP" again.
Mirror: Mirror horizontal - Flip: Mirror vertical

Let’s get started.
Remember to save your work often

Colors :

First, make your own color palette, so you can change your colors easily.


Color 1 (Foreground color) = light blue from your winter scenery tube
Color 2  (Background color )= Light grey from your winter scenery tube
Color 3 : Darker then color 2
Color 4 : Darker then color 1
Color 5 : white (#ffffff)
