Layout Challenge – Shadows!

Hi, all!  It’s my turn again to bring you a challenge and another opportunity to earn some Petal Points toward a $10 coupon to the shoppe!  The “restrictive” challenges that we’ve brought you in the recent past have seemed pretty fun and well received, so I thought I would give you another one.

Your challenge:  make a layout with no shadows nor shadowed elements.  Now, I want you to actually give this one some thought; I’m hoping that you don’t just throw a layout together with a simple omission of shadows.  I’m challenging you to purposefully create a design that looks great without any shadows.

Here are a few ideas that came to me when I though of design plans which would work without shadows

  • Using large photos
  • Using brushwork and photo masks
  • Blocked designs
  • Magazine/Ad inspired
  • Using doodle elements

Here are a few examples from the team to inspire you and get those creative juices flowing
