Thread: drop shadows?

  1. #1

    drop shadows?

    Can anyone point me in the direction of a tutorial or something on drop shadows? I have been using some styles from a few different designers and really want to master them myself to up the wow factor of my pages...especially creating shadows that are lifted like a tag curled up on one corner, etc...I would appreciate any suggestions or help. Thank you!

    The bending shadows one will change your pages dramatically. It was an aha moment for me.

    I love using the different drop shadows here as well as the tutorial mentioned above!! I usually change my angel to 45! But that is my preference!

    I do mine at 45 too Kim ! It just makes more sense to me (visually). But then I need to turn flairs around so that the shiny lighted bit makes sense to the drop shadow. I'm never happy! tee hee.

    I'm late to this thread, Lacey, but BENDING SHADOWS is the BEST tutorial and I use Cassie's shadow techniques on MOST of my layouts!
