This lesson uses several positioned containers that are simply layered on top of each other to produce the desired effect. When layering objects in Scrippy, you may have to try various positions until you get the objects located just where you want them. One thing to remember when layering ... the last object inserted will be on top of everything else. That is a very important thing to remember when making your stationery.
Notice the starting positions, the space between, and the transparency settings for some of the positioned scrolls. You can control where the image starts from the left or right, how far down from the top it shows up and the reason that the images go behind the frame is because they are in a separate positioned container which is the size of the image, NOT the image and the frame. These options give one many possibilities to play with!
As the image in this stationery is so large, I chose to keep the background simple so as not to overwhelm the viewer. I want my picture to be what stands out and not the background.
The credit for this idea goes to Cybermouse. This ssc has been changed from the one that she provides to fit my own personal taste.
If you want to be real creative, you can make your water move. I wasn't
feeling THAT creative when I made this one.
