I try to write my tutorials as plain and clear as possible, but if I get you confused (and, if I do, I am sorry) you can always refer back to the image we are making for reference. Also, this is just a guideline (I write where I place the elements ) but, feel free to move them around, or add different elements. Have fun and experiment, it is the best way to learn new things.

This tutorial was written by me on 09/07/2016 and is purely of my own making.
If there is any resemblance to any other tut it is purely coincidental. Please do not claim as your own.
