    Christina, I used the shape in PSE that looks like three waves. I simplified the layer, then used the marquee tool to select them one at a time and layer via cut. Then I enlarged the shapes to go all the way across, and then clipped a paper to each of them. Maybe this will help.

    Thank you for those tips!
    Never thought about erasing the tops...!

That should select an area with a dotted line around it. Then choose *Inverse* (In Photoshop that's Ctrl+Sht+I .. not sure what it is in Elements.. Jump in with that info Element users! Please! and Thanks! ) and delete and that will get rid of everything except your wave. "

    You don't actually have to do the 'inverse'.... just have another blank layer opened and click on the area surrounded by the blinking dotted lines and drag it onto the new open blank layer. I then used my eraser tool to smooth out some of my edges. If you want a similar wave, you can put it on another blank layer then place paper over it and do the clipping mask. Easy...

    In my page above - the smaller curved piece was one that I used the eraser on to smooth it out. But I left the slightly rougher edges on the bottom two layers. I did a horizonal flip for the middle layer so those 2 layers were slightly different.
