FTU "Ocean Breeze"

Ocean Breeze



This tutorial was written by me on April 29, 2016, using my own ideas. Any resemblance to others is coincidental and accidental. This tutorial assumes you have a working knowledge of psp and is written in PSPX6. 


"Across the Waves" tube by Deanna Bach-Talsma - tube/license currently available at ADI

"Ocean Breeze" FTU scrap kit by A Space Between - Sadly, Mirella has closed her blog and left the psp community due to health issues. Please use a suitable replacement if you don't have this kit.
