Project #19: Triangles (Photoshop CS6 Beta)

I came across this image on Pinterest and thought it would be a fun and easy project.

Pinned Image

You might recognize my original photo (I’m not much of a photographer unfortunately):

To create even triangles, I traced the Triangle Symbol and used the Polygonal Lasso Tool to trace the shape.  I copied and pasted some parts of the image to different locations in addition to adding some coloured and patterned triangles. (I got the patterns for free from the Creative Market.) This is my finished product:

Project #18: Make a Poster (Photoshop CS6[!])

Typographic Posters have me slightly obsessed lately so I decided to take a stab at making one myself with the Photoshop CS6 Beta.  To be honest, I can’t really tell the difference from the 5th edition although I’m a fan of the black screen and it seems to be a little more intuitive. What really inspired me to create something with Photoshop were these Herringbone patterns that I received (free!) for signing up with Creative Market:

I wish that I could paint all my walls and furniture in Herringbone and be surrounded by it all the time! Gorgeous.

This is the poster that I created:

The fonts are all recent downloads (Outlier, Ostrich Sans & Code Light) & I used a Grunge image from Creative Market to add some texture to the circle behind the word “YOU”.  All in all, I’m pretty happy with the result and it was a fun way to spend my Saturday night! Haha

WordPress, I missed you.

Hello!
It feels like it has been forever since I was last able to post! We went up to Yellowknife to visit family for a couple weeks and the internet connections up there are less than favourable (as was the weather haha).

   

I hope everyone had a great Easter!  While I was gone I was nominated for TWO awards and I am so excited and flattered! Jessica Thornburgh nominated me for a Liebster Award on her blog and Lynda Crawford (not related as far as I know!) nominated me for a Versatile Blogger Award :) On Jessica’s blog you can find everything from Home Decor DIY Tutorials to her Oil Paintings to Logo Designs & Lynda can take a picture of anything and make it look cool. Take the time to visit their blogs, I promise you will not be dissapointed!

As for me.. I just downloaded the Photoshop CS6 Beta trial which I am stoked to test out & I will hopefully be posting some new projects in the not too distant future!  I have also been somewhat obsessed with Interior Design lately and some of my decorating projects may find their way to my blog. You can see my collection of inspiration on Pinterest if you are interested in Home Decor.

Thanks again to everyone who has been visiting my blog & nominating me for awards! It means a lot!

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!!
