Irish Eyes are Smiling Tutorial

Irish Eyes are Smiling
 
***Unfortunately I have to have a background on the tag so that the animation doesnt destroy the tag, and distort it horribly. If anyone knows a way around this oh please do tell! 10 years in Paint Shop Pro and still dont know a way around this, which is why I hardly ever make animated tags unless they are forum tags!!! ***

My Disclosure

My tutorials are just that- Mine.In other words I really don't want them on other sites or translated. If you would like to share my tutorial then please do just that by sharing the link to my blog or a link straight to the tutorial. At the time I write the tutorial I use the artists website at the time as well as the kit designers link at the time and it would take quite some time to go back and edit all of my tutorials and posts to reflect all changes that happen. So if by chance you cant find something or a link I provided has gone bad please contact me and I will do my best to help! I write tutorials in hopes that others will use them as a guide and send me their results so I can also post others results to show people other samples other than my own. All tutorials are written by me and any resemblance is purely coincidental. I write my tutorials in PSP 9 but they should work with other versions as well. Not all tutorials are for beginners but all levels of creators are encouraged to try working on the following tutorials!!! Have fun... and be copyright safe!!!!
