And The Audiance Clapped

Uploaded: January 11, 2005


Thanks very much Murry for your instructions!

This took me forever, and because I don't follow instructions well, I ended up doing it Leanne style. Layers (about 3 of them), framing, coping, pasting, eraser tool, history brush, drop shadow effect and with the eraser tool, brushing back the shadow.

Hopefully it is worthwhile for your eyes.
