Imperfection is Beauty Tutorial

Click on image to see larger version
I created this tutorial using PSPX1 but I'm sure
you can do it in any version.
No scrap kit is used, just your imagination with colours

You will need:

A tube - I am using one of Anthony Guerra's lovely lady tubes.
You will need to be a registered member of Creative Design Outlet (CDO)
to purchase his tubes, but any tube will do.
Template #'09-StarCluster2 from Kelly'sKreations at CreativeMisFitsCreations
