Steam Dreams


1 tube of choice - I used the artwork of Jennifer Janesko at CILM - this particular tube is a bonus tube.
Font of Choice - I used Starstruck here
Gem Mask 161 here
“Steam Dreams” is a PTU scrap kit created by Dianna of Digicats (& Dogs) and is part of the amazing Stargazing Collaboration that is offered at Stargazer Scraps. You can visit her blog here.
Thank you Dianna for a kit that more than wow‘d me!

This tutorial was written assuming you have a working knowledge of PSP.

Tap the delete key.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer beside the frame.
Move it into the exact position you want it.
