  1. This is to tell you how uch I enjoy your tutorials. I find them quite creative and original. Except for the artwork, everything else needed to complete them are generally available easily.

    I would really like you to describe in detail how you achieve the effects applied to your texts in your tutorials. That would save me a lot of trial and error time when I try to duplicate them!
