Finally, I uploaded this one here too, now you guys won't have to dig through my webpage for it anymore. Of course, ifyou find the layout irritating or difficult, then you can still use the one over there instead. It's basically the exact same thing , but without the fancy, dark framing device.

Even if I use PhotoshopCS4 myself,the tutorial is not program-specific (as my tutorials never are) and all you really need is a round paint brush with adjustable opacity-levels, a couple of layers and optionally some sort of smudge brush.
It is exected that you are at least somewhat familiar with whatever program you're using, as there's no "and this is how you make a new layer"-type of advice in the tutorial. That would kind of nullify the non-program-specific thing I've got going on here.

But hey, have fun!


Man, I've fallen in love with that font, Century Gothic. It's so...round and geometrical. Not the easiest to read, but sooo pretty.

Thank you for sharing this! Water has always been intimidating for me to try and tackle in art, so this will help me try out some new techniques!

This is lovely! Thank you so much, I REALLY needed this. Also, the end results are absolutely gorgeous!
Side note - Century Gothic is actually one of the easiest fonts to read (according to science Meow :3 ), so good choice!
