Tutorial TOU

All tutorials on this site are written by me using paint shop pro and different outside filters and various online resources. Any similar tutorials are purely coincidental. .

Your results are yours to do with what you like but no money is to be made using my tutorials.

All supplies are either made by me or a link is placed for you to download from the creator's site. I do not share fonts. I will tell you what font i used and if you would like to use the same you can google it.
