This background tile is not for the faint of heart.  *S*
A good use for this tile would be as a side or top border at 100% opacity.

For this tutorial you will need:

PSP 7 download the trial version
Jama 3D
Pizza Slice Mirror Filter
Texturizer & Canvas texture

If need be download and install Jama, Pizza Slice Mirror Filter and the Texurizer.  (Jama will self install and the other two go into your PSP Plugins folder.)  Unzip the canvas texture into the place you keep your .psd files for use with the Texturizer.


Right click and save the picture below:
