Living On the Edge

This tutorial was written by me on July 15, 2013 and is my own creation. Any resemblance to any other tutorial is purely coincidental and unintentional.

PSP Version used: PSP X5, but should work in other versions.

This tutorial assumes you have a good working knowledge of PSP.

Supplies:

Tube of choice. I am using the work of Roman Zaric. You can purchase his tubes here

Urban Jungle kit by Inzpired Creationz. You can purchase this kit here

DD_SATC_TemplateExclusive_Mar16 by Dees'Sign Depot. You can get info on how to get it here

Mask of choice. I am using mask 370 by Insatiable Dreams. You can find it here in her Masks 10 set. 

Font of choice. I am using Andalus.
