This lesson was written by Jille in the Dutch version from PSP XIII
on February 14 2011.
I followed my own inspiration. Any connection with an existing lesson is merely a coincidence
It is possible to make this lesson in lower versions as well
Second example with dolls from Monique and Fily

A Note
For this lesson I took a mask from CAMERON maskcameron_plate5.jpg - I copied this mask - pasted it on a bigger image , Afterwards I duplicated this mask, mirrored it and merged the two layers. I used this mask ( camerondubbel.jpg) to start my lesson .
Mask: camerondubbel.jpg
Mask: maskcameron_plate5.jpg

background JHanna_107 bground
affiche.jpg
Texture - \@nn_140410_TXT_018_tdstudio.bmp
Texture: Aarde.bmp
Tube: 12206401731_fleurs.pspimage
Tube: JHanna_370 tubes(2).pspimage
Tube:\V~ArtEasels-2_afgewerkt.pspimage
Tube:V~ArtEasels-2.pspimage

I copied and edited following images from the internet
Tube: affiche_Afsch.pspimage
Tube: affiche_Afsch2.pspimage
Tube: anna.pspimage
Tube:mondigliani_kaders.pspimage

I thank the makers from backgrounds, the mask and the tubes for their beautiful work. This lesson would not exist without their effort
