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 I used the beautiful work of Julie from BitsNBobs through the kit 'She Dreams' which can be found HERE
Eye Candy Impact 5:Gradiant Glow

Lets get started.

  • First OPEN your bubble of choice, we all know I love purple so we know which one I chose Ü and resize it 150%. (This is to make it easier to work with while we go.)
  • Create a new raster layer, transparent
  • Using your ELLIPSE TOOL Create a circle the same size as the bubble outline dark gray and inside what ever background you would like for your bubble. I used a purple with the texture of wet leaves. Since you made this on a new layer you can switch to the PICK TOOL to resize your circle if need be.
  • In order if what I added to my bubble I have the Element 5 (leaves), Curled ribbon 1, wings 1 and dress 2. I only added a small drop shadow to the dress because I liked the way the rest of it turned out without one.
  • I flood filled my background with a landscape like fill
  • Added a few stars
  • Wording I used Brock Script with a GRADIENT GLOW of soft white 7.5 width.
  • Added my mark (Don't forget copyrights if needed)
  • RESIZE (I did 50%)
  • SAVE

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial Blessed Be, and don't forget to share your results! Lorilynn
