This tutorial was created for some friends of mine who wanted to begin learning more about PSP.  It is intended for beginners to learn how to create the background of this tag.  If you have any questions, please feel free to Email  me.

To do this tutorial you will also need Paint Shop Pro.  I wrote this with  Paint Shop Pro XI, but the steps may also be done in any version.  You may download a free trial at Corel.
