Filter  used: VanDerLee---Snowflakes
Drop Shadow=DS= 2,2,50,5 black

1.) Grass--Copy and Paste= C&P as New Raster Layer= NRL--place it on the bottom. Duplicate and flip--move it under 1st layer--merge down (EX.1)

2.) Duplicate--mirror--merge down--DS--duplicate--move up- and merge down.
3.) With raster deform tool (pick tool)--stretch the grass out a bit,to fit all the bottom section of canvas.--crop--opaque
4.) On top layer--C&P Tube as NRL--duplicate--adjust--blur--gaussian--5--Blend Mode=BM=multiply--Opacity= 70%--Merge down---DS
5.) Fountain--Resize=R--50% & 80%--adjust--sharpen--unsharp mask--default--C&P as NRL and place on left side DS--tag reference=TR
6.) Flower bundle2--R= 80% X 3--unsharp mask--C&P as NRL place near tube--DS
7.) Flower Floaties--C&P as NRL and place below tube layer
8.) Flower petals--C&P as NRL and place at bottom of canvas
9.) Fence 2--R=50% C&P as NRL--DS--TR---Duplicate and Mirror
10.) Fence1 R= 50%--C&P as NRL and place next to fence2--once all layers are lined evenly--merge down fence layers.
11.) Bench--R= 70%--sharpen--DS--place behind tube
12.) Tree 1---R-80%--C&P as NRL--Place it behind the fountain--DS--duplicate,R=80% (add a few trees to backgound--resizing as you go) TR
13.) Purse--R=80% X4---unsharp mask--put it on the bench behind the tube.
14.) Stone Path--R=80% unsharp mask--C&P as NRL and place it on the grass--in front of tree and under tube---DS--duplicate--flip and join the ends once happy--merge down, place it so the walk looks like mine.
15.) Umbrella--R= 80% X3---unsharp mask--DS--TR--and place layer below tube layer
16.) Street lamp--R--60% unsharp mask--place behind the bench layer--DS--duplicate--mirror---place this one brhind fence---TR
17.) Puppy 1--R=60%--sharpen--place bottom left--DS
18.) Flower 1--R= 70% & 80%--C&P as NRL--place behind tree layer---duplicate and mirror--move up just a bit--merge down---TR
19.) Growing VIne--C&P as NRL--place it on the fence--make it look like its growing on fence--DS--duplicate and Mirror---TR
20.) Flower 3--C&P as NRL and place them on the fence,near the gate--DS--duplicate and mirror (TR)
21,) C&P Paper 3--place it right above the background layer,move it down so you have green behind the fence as your grass---TR
22.) In material pallette-- put 9BD2C5--now on background layer--add new raster layer--Flood fill with that color--rename sky if you want
23.) Clouds--C&P as NRL--place on top layer--duplicate a couple of times--DS--TR
24.) Balloon 2--R= 50% unsharp mask---place it on your sky--DS---TR-
25.)Balloon with Puppy--R=50%--unsharp mask--C&P as NRL on top layer, near one of your clouds--DS--TR
26.) Kite--R--50%--unsharp mask--Mirror--C&P as NRL and place it behind tree--like its floating away--DS--TR
27.) Frog--R--50%--C&P as NRL and place it on the walkway---DS--TR
28.) If you don't want to animate--then resize all 63%--sharpen,add all Copyright info---and Name
then save as PNG
29.) to animate do these next steps:
30.) close out all layers above the fountain,close out fountain..then merge visible all layers below fountain---rename bottom.
31.) now close out bottom, open all layers above fountain (except puppy--keep closed) --merge visible all layers--rename top
32.) Now resize all layers 63%--sharpen all layers-there should be 4--bottom--fountain--top---puppy
Add all Copyrights and now lets animate
open fountain layer
33.) Duplicate fountain layer 2X = 3 layers
close out top 2 layers--now working on the bottom layer--first you want to get your lasso tool--(freehand selection tool) point to point--add shift--feather=1--smoothing=0--anti-alias--checked
go around the outside of fountains water as shown in EX.2
on #1-- go to vanderlee snowflakes--these settings:
amt= 250
Min. =0
max. = 20
Hard.= 100
Tran. = 0
Basic = Icy Blue
Random seed = 1
close out-layer 1
open layer 2-= add same filter change random seed to--20
close out 2--open layer 3---change random seed to--30.
close out layer 3
Open animation shop.
Open all layers but 2 and 3 of animated fountain
copy merged and place into animation shop as a new animation.
close out ani.1--open ani. 2--copy merged and paste after current frame.
close out ani.2 and open ani. 3---copy merged and paste after current frame.
Now you should have 3 frame layers--once your happy.
save as gif.
Thanks for trying my tut.
