This tut was written June 18th, 2018 for those with a basic knowledge of psp.
I am using the awesome artwork of Janna Prosvirina
The tube is called "Daughter of the Ocean"
You need a license to use this tube, do not use without a license.
I used PSPX...but any of them should work.
Font of choice, I used Mermaid Swash Caps
