Ok Learning the Shadows & FREEBIE

Ok, so I spent the better part of yesterday Learning, yes learning that is what this process is all about, remember? Me=Scrapper=Learning=Documenting=EVERYTHING!!!! So yup even something as small as learning how to apply a drop shadow.

Small I say? Wrong it is NOT a small feat no, no it isn't! I did say a BETTER PART OF YESTERDAY!!!! That is exactly what I meant lol. I learned a drop shadow is not just a drop shadow but...Dunt dunt dah.. it is a MASTERPIECE! a WONDERFULLY BEAUTIFULLY crafted art form. I learned it REALLY does make the page. Well it definitely made my flower lol. Page is to come later. I am going to learn what I used not just on a lonely little flower, but on a WHOLE page lol. I will of course be back to show you what it looks like when I am done. Don't know if that wil be today or not.

I have a birthday party today. My niece is turning 15. Happy Birthday Alyssa I LOVE YOU.... {she's never gonna see this but I feel better hehe}. I come from a LARGE family. My mother and father had 4 children. Some how those 4 crazy children gave them 20 count them TWENTY grandchildren {only 3 are mine~ I'm not the crazy one muahahhaha} . So where does that leave me? The Aunt well with TWENTY count them 20 beautiful faces to scrap:) So I am never at a loss for what to scrap.

I also learned about grouping. I learned I will never again make anything in Photoshop without GROUPING! and linking. Makes EVERYTHING so much easier. Where did the part to this flower go? Where is that darn shadow? Well here it is all in this nice little GROUPING folder. Oh how I LOVEEEEEEEEEEEE organization. If my house were a computer and I had sub folder upon sub folder I would be the happiest woman in the world. You can learn about GROUPING yourself if you want. This is not for my program but it looks like you can follow along in pretty much any PS CS.

OK, OK you can have the freebie if you want it lol. One has the shadow, one does not in case you think to yourself. Child you really learned nothing. Keep working on it, hope that page goes well haha.

I hope you all have a Fantastic Day!!!

I am learning also, tedious but rewarding ;o) You can leave me a comment on my blog or email me. I will subscribe to this post in case you add a comment here.

  2. Here are some places I read about drop shadows that day:) I use Photoshop CS5 just so you know. ***Liked this one alot***

    Good luck you in your learning process. Thank you for your comments I do appreciate them. I did not make the flower I am not that advanced yet lol. I bought that as a commercial use product. You can find the credits in the download. I just added the bling and the drop shadow.
