Shadow Tutorial with Freebie!

If you are looking for new products today. I'm sorry. You will probably be disappointed because I have no new products for you. BUT, I do have a short video tutorial with a freebie to go along with it. :-)

A couple weeks ago I released some Banner Templates.

Someone suggest I do a tutorial showing how I shadow them. I'm no expert, that's for sure. But I thought I would make a little video tutorial showing you how I shadow them. I'm using Photoshop CS3. I know that in Photoshop Elements there is more limitation as to what you can do but I do show you my shadow settings (which might help for Elements). I'm also using paper from the Viva Las Vegas Collab Kit (just in case you were wondering).

I always wonder if I'm doing things the "right" there maybe be another way to do this but this is how I do them. Hope it helps. And don't forget to grab the freebie below so you can try right along with me.

Just click on the pic to download.

I'm just going to pop in real quick tonight to show you a page I just scrapped about my grandparents. My grandfather passed away last week and so I was inspired to scrap this page about my grandparents. My grandmother passed away 14 years ago. They were married for over 60 years! They had 6 children and from those 6 children: 22 grandchildren, 36 great-grandchildren and 5 great-great-grandchildren!
My Journaling:
Even though my grandparents are gone now, they left such an amazing example of how a simple Christian life and marriage should be lived out that even in my life today I can apply those simple truths to my life. Examples of hard work, dedication, service, honesty, steadfastness, gentleness, trusting in God, not complaining or gossiping, etc.. These are the things I remember about my grandparents and I pray that I will take their example and apply it to my life, daily.

Thankfully I had these pics scanned in from an album I did awhile ago (I'll have to show that to you another time). I used a template from an upcoming template set that will be coming out this Thurs. (I guess this is your little sneak peek for this week) and then a kit from Julie Bullock called Vintage Treasures (Beautiful by the way and perfect for a page like this!)

I won't be doing a giveaway on the blog this week but I will have one over at Scrap Orchard and probably DST later on tomorrow sometime. I'm still getting back to normal around here after traveling for the funeral this weekend. I'll let you know on my facebook when I have those posted so that you'll have a chance to wint my 2 NEW template sets.
