snowy winter

 

 

 

I work with PSP X4 and there is a Snow Pattern and Basic Shape Square Shadow standard but for those working with a different version of PSP, I added them to my Materials.

Put the Pattern in your PSP Textures (15) Folder and your Basic Shape (Preset Shapes) in your Basic Shapes Folder (11) of PSP
