This tutorial was written in PSP 8, however, if you don't have PSP and want to use the trial version, only PSP 9 is available for download. Both versions are very similar though so you shouldn't have any problem doing it in either version.

This is what we'll be making:


For this tutorial, you will need:

PSP 9 & Animation Shop 3 - You can download a free trial of both programs HERE
The doll I used. DOWNLOAD and unzip to a folder of your choice.
ActionIs Font - This is a free font. Click HERE

Eyecandy4000 - This isn't a free filter. It can be purchased
Alien Skin are now offering this filter as a free demo. Download Eyecandy 5 Nature to try this and other filters, free for 30 days :) Thanks to Loopycat for the information ;)
