Learn about adding the decorative elements to the drop cap letter.
- [Instructor] Having added the pattern…and having added the extruded drop shadow,…we are now ready to complete the decorative drop cap…by adding the decoration.…And I have my decorative elements,…these two leaves on these separate layers.…I'm going to start out with this one…and it really is just a case of creating multiples of these…and scaling and rotating them but before I begin,…I'm going to convert each to a smart object.…
So let's start with this one…and I'm going to rotate it…and scale it and I'm holding down the shift key…when I scale it so that I can keep it proportional…although there may be times…when I don't necessarily want to do that…and then I'll commit to that one.…Now I'm going to duplicate this one…and I think I'd like to flip this one around.…So I'm going to come to my Transform…and choose Flip horizontal.…
And then I'll move that one in place like so.…And now let's come to the larger of the two leaves,…command or ctrl + t, scale it down,…rotate it one way or the other…maybe let's spin this one around.…
