It's official, Illustrator is my new best toy. I'm having the most amount of fun with this. Thankfully, despite my wobble on day 3 of the course, I managed quite well on day 4.
I popped into paperchase to pick up a few greetings cards for inspiration and to push myself to learn some of the techniques I've been taught.
The first couple of designs here are designs I have replicated from a greetings card and a book cover
These designs are all my own - in a fifties style
I feel so enthused about this - I'm loving my newly gained skills and what I can do with them. Leaving my job really was the right thing to do, it just feels so right.
These fifties designs have also given me some new ideas for something of a fabric nature, which I'm going to work on next week.
