PTU Tut- Reflection

This tutorial is of my own creation and any resemblance to any other tuts is purely coincidental. This tutorial is for personal use only, using it for monetary gain is against our TOU's.

Gimp or program of choice
PTU kit Serentiy from Tasha's Playground
Tube of choice. I am using the art of Sue Rundle-Hughes. You must have a license to use these tubes. Purchase them at PSP Tube Stop.
Font- Janda Elegant Handwriting
-File>New 600x600 px.

-Open water. Place towards the bottom of canvas.

-Open tube. Layer>Scale Layer 65%. Place to the right side of water. Layer>Duplicate Layer. Place duplicate tube under the main tube in the layer box. Select the rotate tool. Click the canvas and in the angle box put 180. Select the flip tool and click canvas to flip the tube. Place tube in the water (to it will look like a reflection). Make the water layer active. Layer>Transparency>Alpha To Selection. Make the duplicate tube active. Select>Invert. Edit>Cut. Select>None. Lower the opacity of the duplicate tube to 80.

-Make the main tube active. Filters>Light & Shadow>Drop Shadow 2, 2, 5, black, 50. Duplicate. Filters>Blur>Gaussian Blur on default. Change the mode to soft light.

-Open tree. Make the bottom layer. Flip. Scale 75%. Place to the right side of tag. I erased part of the tree sticking below the tube. Repeat drop shadow.

-Open grass mound. Make the bottom layer. Place in the center of the rest of the elements.

-Open water again. Scale 75%. Move above the grass mound in the layer box. Place to the right side of tag at the bottom. Duplicate. Place duplicate to the left die od tag, so it look like there is a pond.

-Open grass 3. Move above the water layers in the layer box. Scale 65%. Place to the right side of tag. Duplicate 3 times and place the duplicates on the left side of tag.

Other elements:
flower 5
cattail 1
cattail 2
dragonfly (rotate 25)
butterfly 2 (rotate -30)

-Add your name and copyright and you're done!
