This tutorial was written with CorelX9 and translated with Corel X7 and CorelX3, but it can also be made using other versions of PSP.
Since version PSP X4, Image>Mirror was replaced with Image>Flip Horizontal,
and Image>Flip with Image>Flip Vertical, there are some variables.
In versions X5 and X6, the functions have been improved by making available the Objects menu.
In the latest version X7 command Image>Mirror and Image>Flip returned, but with new differences.

You can change Blend Modes according to your colors.

In the newest versions of PSP, you don't find the foreground/background gradient (Corel_06_029).
You can use the gradients of the older versions.
The Gradient of CorelX here

Copy the brushes in Brush folder. Attention, please, every brush is composed by two files, you must place both the files in the folder.
See my notes about Brushes here
In the material, you find the brushes in jpg (to export as custom brush), and png (to copy/paste as new layer), if you have problems with the brushes.



Copy the Texture in the Textures Folder.
Copy the Selections in the Selections Folder (if you want to use them instead of the alpha channel)

Open the masks in PSP and minimize them with the rest of the material.
