A lot of you have been asking that I do this tutorial. It answers how I create those designs using the pen tool. I hope it's clear and enjoyable. Good luck.

Excellent tutorial, Nathan! It's very well worded and I'm sure it will encourage many people to have a go with the pen tool, too!
But seeing the first shape you created, there's one thing that's been bugging me for ages now...creating smooth bendy lines I can do, but how did you manage to make the pen go from a curve to a sharp point? (because I always have to start a new path if I want a zig-zag type thing otherwise the pen tries to loop round instead of being sharp...hehe, sorry, I'm not very good at explaining things but I'm sure you understand what I mean :P)
Anywho...Well done!

Nathan, I've never tried this but will give it a go in PSP. Hopefully, my program is similar enough to follow along. Thanks for sharing this info - Patty

Thanks very much for doing it Nathan. I'll look into it. Think it would work with my old version Photoshop 6 ?

I'm not sure about PS 6 - it's been a while since I used that one. Give it a try and see.
