Simple Shadows

Welcome to July's Technique Blog Hop!  This month we are featuring a Simple Shadow technique as shown on page 102 of the Annual Inspiration Ideabook.  This hop is a great big circle so be sure to visit all the designer's blogs to get some really great ideas!  If you are coming from Tonya's blog you are on the right path!  If you get lost along the way or would like to refer back to a certain blog you will find a list of all our designers this month at the end of my post.
This technique is all about quick easy ways to highlight an item on your card or layout so it stands out from the rest of the piece.  I decided to do a quick layout in Studio J for this one.
As you can see, by adding a second journaling box and duplicating the black YMCA I was able to create a shadow by changing the color to slate and moving the box over just a smidgen.  I also added a journaling box to each photo, colored it slate and moved it just a bit to the left and above my photos to create a bit more shadowing than was originally there from the program.  All of the shadowing elements I "sent to the back" by right clicking on the box and selecting that option.  If you would like to play with Studio J go here to my website and have some fun!  One great thing about Studio J is that you can change up the papers and placement as many times as you want and you don't waste a thing!
Thanks for stopping by today.  Now hop over to Melissa's blog and see what inspiration she has created for you!
