If Walls Could Talk


If Walls Could Talk

I couldn't resist using Durin Eberhart's "Mixed" one more time. Awesome kit with cool embellishments. Also used embellishments from "Sparkle Curls" by Melissa Renfro, "Sweet Words" by Angie Briggs, "Time in a Bottle" by Lauren Bavin (another website), "Serendipity" by Cheryl Barber, "Resolutions" by Syndee Nuckles, and "Comfort" by Scrap Girls.

Technique: Adding shadow to frames
This can always be frustrating because the shadowing within the frame, next to the photo, is different from the surrounding shadow outside the frame. Therefore, a simple drop down shadow doesn't quite look right. Solve the problem as follows:
1. Click on the frame and apply a soft shadow (one that goes all the way around the object) with the edge softening set to 0. Start walking the shadow inward from all 4 corners so that it no longer can be seen from the outside of the frame, but only from the inside of the frame. You'll need to walk a little uneven as each side of the shadow next to the photo should not be equal. Let your imaginary light source be the guide. Also, this shadow should be a tad darker than the surrounding shadow that comes next. Click "OK" once you're happy with the inside shadow.
2. Click on the frame again and apply a soft shadow with the edge softening set to about 50. Make it a little lighter in color than the previous shadow. Adjust the shadow by walking it inward until it seems realistic based on your imaginary light source. Click "OK".

Now you have a frame shadowed very realistically.
