Any resemblance to another

For this tutorial, I’m using
The art of Barbara Jensen
You can purchase her artwork at
Her tube store

Scrap of choice.
I’m using one by Kelly Jo’s Scraps
Called Farm Frollick
It is a FTU kit.

1) Open a 600x600 new image.
Open grass tube.
Resize 17% or as needed.

2) Paste as new layer at bottom of new image..
Duplicate once & mirror.
Move the bottom one up slightly to give illusion
Of a pasture or field.
Add drop shadow to both
