Element: Word Rocks
I was working on a layout and trying to figure out the perfect element to use on it. I thought perhaps a word rock would look nice, but I didn't have any in my files. So I set out to make one. Unfortunately, it didn't work on my layout, but now I've got word rocks to share with you!
Here's how they work:
I created 3 different rock shapes and 12 different words. You choose the rock you'd like, then you pick a word to put on the rock. Use your lasso tool (or marquise shape) to grab the word, then slide it onto the rock. All words work on each rock.
I didn't add drop shadows to the rock, so you can do that as you see fit. The angle I used for the shading on the rock itself is 120* (sun from top left). You can always use your dodge and burn tools if you need to tweek the shading a bit.
Each rock is approximately 2.75" wide, created at 300dpi.
