My Daughter was born on Feb 14, 2010 and she is wonderfully healthy! Thank you for all the wonderful emails about everything. I just wanted to say that for right now since life has gotten so busy I am working mainly on tags and layouts. There will be the occasional tutorial but not as many as before. I am sorry if this causes any problems, but family comes first! I hope this finds all my followers doing well! Blessed Be! ~Lori

  • For this tutorial you will need PSP as well as Squirlz Water reflections. You can find Squirlz HERE
  • The scrap kit I used is called Moonlight from Candy's Treats and can be bought HERE
  • The tube of my choice is a WONDERFUL PTU from Suzanne Woolcott and is ONLY Avalable until 03/13/09 because it is a fundraiser tube for Comic relief... so PLEASE go HERE to purchase the tube all proceeds will go directly to Comic relief!!
  • Lets begin....
    • Open 2 scrap papers of choice from the kit. I used the moon over the water as well as the black pinstripes. I placed one over the other and brought the top layer transparancy down to a 65% which is where I liked it, if you would like more or less feel free.
    • I picked the frame I liked and applied that to my background, and moved it down slightly, placed a 10, 10, black 100% drop shadow on it.
    • Added my tube and trimed the excess for the effect I wanted useing my selection lasso.
    • Picked the Moonlight word art and put that above the frame.
    • Put the name under the frame also with a drop but this time in white.
    • If you would like other embellishments or anything else add them now.
    • DONT forget to provide your liceance and copyright info for your PTU tubes!!!
    • Resize if you would like and save the file.
    • Open SWR and open the tag you just saved.
    • Click on the Elipsis and you are going to want to outline everything you want a water reflection in. Kinda like so:
    • Hit the Ripple effect button and the settings I used were as follows but you can tweak to your liking:
    • Hit the GIF button in the toolbar to save the animation
    • Congrats you did it!
    • Blessed Be until next time... Lorilynn
