Challenge November 2021 - *BLIND TUTORIAL 39*


This tutorial is made with PSP 2018
But you can make it with other versions

The © of this tutorial is my own.
My lessons may NOT be linked or copied
on other websites and / or forums, without my consent

Any resemblance to other tutorials on the wide web is based on mere coincidence.

Leave the names and watermarks of tubes and other material intact.
It takes a lot of work to make this.
Please respect this.

I also thank everyone for their tubes and materials that I can use in my tutorials.

If you place your creation in a blog, on Facebook or on a website, please mention a link to the tutorial.

In order not to ruin the surprise for others PLEASE do not post your version in puclic
before the end of the challenge.
In this case it’s 30/11/2021.
Thanks !

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.    

Plugins : 
1/ Mehdi : Sorting Tiles
2/ MuRa’s Meister : Perspective Tiling
3/ Carolaine & Sensibility : CS-Texture
4/ Toadies : What are you?
5/ AAA Frames : Foto Frame

(-) Import into Filters Unlimited


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