You will find the original tutorial here :

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 Sass for testing Cloclo’s tutorials

Thank you to respect Cloclo’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
selections - masks - tubes
The main tube is not provided
the tubes provided are licence free

open all the tubes into PSP and duplicate them. Work with the copies to preserve orignals
open the masks and minimize it to tray
copy / paste selections into the folder « selections » into 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 from PSPX4, in the later versions of PSP the functions « Mirror » and « Flip » have been replaced by --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

Filters (plugins) used
Kang 2 / X cubes
Filtres It@lian Editors / Effetto Fantasma
Filtres Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 Impact / Glass

Use the pencil to follow the steps
hold down left click to grab it and move it

Important
Open all images with PSP, duplicate them and close the originals.
Never work with original images.
don’t forget to save your work often

prepare these two colors in your materials paletteDon't hesitate to change the colors and the blend modes of the layers,
according to your tubes and images

translator’s note
Cloclo created her tag with PSP XII
I used PSP2018 to create my tag and write my translation
but this tutorial can be realized with another version
according to the version of PSP you use, the results might be slightly differents
don’t hesitate to change the blend modes and opacities of the layers to match your tubes and colors
