This tutorial is a personal creation.
Any resemblance with another one would be only pure coincidence.
It is stricly forbidden to modify tubes, to change their name or take off the matermarks,
To present them on your sites or blog,
To share them in groups,
to make a bank of images, or to use them on lucrative purposes.

Thank you to respect Animabelle’s work and the tubers work.
Don’t hesitate to warn me if you have any trouble with this translation,
and I’ll try to fix the problem as quickly as I can

Material
masks - tubes - palette - decoration tubes - selection
xxxxxxxxx Download material xxxxxxxxxxx
open all the tubes into PSP and duplicate them. Work with the copies to preserve orignals
open the masks and minimize them to tray
copy / paste selection into the folder « selections » of Corel PSP General folder
TIP 1 -> if you don’t want to install a font -->
open it in a software as « Nexus Font » (or other font viewer software of you choice)
as long as both windows are opened (software and font), your font will be available in your PSP
TIP 2 -> from PSPX4, in the later versions of PSP the functions « Mirror » and « Flip » have been replaced by -->
« Mirror » --> image -> mirror -> mirror horizontal
« Flip » --> image -> mirror -> mirror vertical

Important
Open all images with PSP, duplicate them and close the originals.
Never work on original images.
Animabelle works with PSPX9, I work with PSP2018
but you can follow the steps with another version of PSP
save your work often

Colors
use the Dropper tool to pick up ..... colors into your tube
Animabelle chose these colors

color 1 -> ForeGround color -> #fdebfb
color 2 -> BackGround color -> #843f49
color 3 -> #bb7ca9
color 4 -> #f1959a
color 5 -> #742e38
Don't hesitate to change the colors and the blend modes of the layers,
according to your tubes and images
