Make It Colourful - Add Reflections to Water


This week over at Make it Colourful we are asking you to add reflections to water and our sponsor is Make It Crafty. I've take 2 gorgeous Make It Crafty images and merged them together - Sailing Leaf  and Cici. I then inverted them in paint.NET and played with the special effects to distort and blur them - I also "squished" them slightly - reflections are rarely crisp and clear. I then added the original image on "top" of the water and printed it out and coloured it up. I added some blinged up lasercut Flower Leaf Frames from Make It Crafty to embellish.

If you're after more inspiration check out what some of the other DT gals have come up with on our blog - there are different ways of adding reflections and some GORGEOUS work!

NOW for some NEWS......


On July 14, Zoe and Christy and their teams will release a delightful combination of Victorian Steampunk images, and we welcome you to anticipate the release of...     

     

  
"Mix and Match with Make It Crafty and Tiddly Inks."
