New Blog Banner (Adobe Illustrator CS5)

Has anyone tried out the Adobe Creative Suite #6 yet??

Sorry for the lack of posts, I have been uber busy with work this week!  I made my first mobile app ever and it took me a while to get used to the building platform that I am using (GoMobile Solutions).  If the company decides to purchase the app I will definitely share it on here!

I have been dying to design a new banner and my free Adobe Illustrator trial expires today so it seemed like a great time to create one.  I decided to keep it simple this time… I used this picture of Yellowknife that I edited in Photoshop a while back:

And I found an awesome free font here:

awesome designer fonts created in 2011

(Downloading fonts is my latest obsession)

I combined my picture and font to make my new header:

Hopefully it won’t be too long until I have time to make another post!!

Project #16: Create My Own “Damask Print” (Adobe Illustrator CS5)

Hello! This week I am working on a blog banner for the lovely Heather Tiger. One of the things she likes is Damask Print so, I decided to try making my own so that I can include it in her banner.

I used this image as a guideline:

& this is my creation:

Damask Print is much easier to create than I thought it would be however, it requires a lot of patience. I used the Pen Tool and copied & pasted the designs to the opposite side using the “Reflection” function to save time and make it more symetrical. 

After this project, I have a new appreciation for Damask Print!!
