Colour my World



This lesson was written by Jille in the Dutch version from PSP XIII
on April 25th 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

Example 3 with a tube from Betsie


Edited with Optik Vervelabs filter - Virtual Photographer B/W
