Notice and TOU

Most of my tutorials are written using PTU art and scrapkits! That however should not stop you from trying them. I understand not everyone can buy scrapkits and/or art but there are tons of FTU artist and freebie scrapkits that you can use. I only write tutorials as a guide. What YOU do with them is up to your imagination
All Tutorials have been written in PSP 8. They are just a guideline on how to make a tag look a certain way and do not have to be followed word for word!
If you are a group manager please feel free to link to my tutorials but if you don't mind could you leave me a link to your group in my chatbox or you can email me
I love to see what people make using my tuts
Thank you.

Dark Dreams

This tutorial was written in PSP 8 but can be done in other versions
This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of PSP

Image of Choice
*I am using the gorgeous artwork of Zindy S.D. Nielsen. You MUST have a license to use the same art*

Dark Dreams PTU Scrap Kit
*This is a beautiful kit by A Taggers Scrap. Please visit her blog to find the stores she sells in*
