Scrap Play Series – Warping Shadows

Rachel created another fabulous shadow tutorial for us this week – adding an extra realistic shadow to corners. This is so much fun for that one special touch and does not matter what kit or product we use…it is all about the photo!

I love when I look at a layout and see those little bits of details. The corners lifting off the page, a spot where the glue or tape isn’t holding it down as firmly, an older photo with curled corners. If you want to recreate the look in digital, it can be achieved through moving the shadows around.
Previously, Rachel taught us how to move shadows to separate layers. If you missed it, you can catch it here.

Now that they are separated, it’s easy to move them a little and warp them to make those corners look like they are lifting. Check it out below:

This is a technique that requires a little bit of practice. I love how the edge of the corner on the layout is just barely lifting off. I’d love to see any pages you create using this technique! Link them in the comments for us.

Be sure and subscribe to the Etc by Danyale You Tube Channel while you are there so you don’t miss any of the Scrap Play series.

Try it out and let us know how it works for you!
