When the night comes

Written by Jille on July 15th 2014 in the Dutch version from PSP X5
I followed my own inspiration. All simularities with existing lessons are a coincidence

2d example with tubes from Gina - DBK - Anaridzi
Material

Chat (0049) en MD masks

filters I used

Flaming Pear - Flood
Mura's Meister - Copies

In PSP 14 and later versions the option "Image - Mirror" & "Image - Flip" has been replaced by other applications (flip horizontal and flip vertical) who don't give the same result .There is an easy way to add the old Mirror and Flip options to the Main menu. You can find these scripts here
Please use these scripts in this lesson
