Oops, Michelle. There are further gradient instructions on the 'Fountain' puzzle.

Gradients can give you surprises (just remember to go to 'Select / Inverse' when you want to apply a gradient to only a section of your layer).
Practice exercise coming up:
~Layer/New/Layer
~Click on Gradient Tool located on your left (beneath paint bucket)
~Click on the arrow next to rectangle (located beneath File in upper left corner), click on any colour and press ok
~ Choose one of the five gradient styles immediately to the right
~ In your layer, click in one area and drag to another - your gradient is done throughout the entire layer
...Later, use Magic Wand, highlight a shape, then the Select/Inverse technique before Gradient. There's more info, but I think that's enough for now.
... Any questions, just let me know.

I think this is beyond me at the moment...even with your explanation, I feel like a fish out of water! I haven't been very successful working with gradients yet. I have to figure that out before I could even attempt this...all in good time and with loads of practice, I guess. ;-D

Michelle, the 'Z' here is an example of what I mentioned yesterday. I created my fabric and put it aside. I used an internet letter as my basic shape to get this Z. This was a black+white photo to which I added various hues of gradients, lowering the opacity in the sky.

Thanks Mandy. I have to agree with you about the morphed £. You're in first spot! :)

Francine, this is great fun - although to me the Z looks a bit like a morphed British Pound Sign (£)... shades of things to come in the US??? I love your dancing X-man!!

Heard of painting the town red but this goes way beyond that! You've got the handle on text formatting :-) Thanks, Francine.
