Groovy Girls

My ideas and motives are often taken from every day life, things that are often overlooked and sometimes forgotten but still means a great deal to people.

Let’s start by creating a new file (File>New) with 1024×768 px and 72 dpi.

Groovy Girls

Next step we have to find in Internet a picture of a girl which must be cut out and placed the way it is shown next image:

Groovy Girls

Make three copies of the new made layer containing the girl’s picture. Next we have to place by turn each copy upper than the previous one on the layers’ palette. The fist copy should get the layer’s parameters: Apply also the filter’s option here indicated: Filter>Filter Gallery>Stamp

It’s time to combine in a group all the layers composing the small drop (press Ctrl button to mark out the appropriate layers and then make a left mouse’s click to move the marked layers on Create a new group option) Make thirty-two copies of the last made group and select after that the Free Transform function to change the copies’ sizes as it is represented next picture:

Combine in a group all the layers containing the big drop and the smaller ones (press Ctrl button to mark out the necessary layers and make a left button mouse’s click to take down the marked layers on Create a new group option). Make a copy of this new made group and select once again the Free Transform option to enlarge the copy and to place it the way it is shown next image:

Combine the two new groups in a single group the way we have described earlier. Make a copy of this couple and apply again the Free Transform option to turn over the copy and to place it as in the picture. Change the next parameter Blending Options>Gradient Overlay of the big drop’s primary layer on the layers’ palette:
