Illustrator part 2

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.

Oh these are stunning Monda - I adore the fifties atom motif and these are so exciting. Keep showing us!

Good for you for pursuing what you really want to do. It's a brave but rewarding decision! You have a great eye. I look forward to seeing what you get up to!!!

Love your new designs! Illustrator is my favourite programme to use, which I use every day at work. It takes time to learn it all, there is so much, and it look as if you did really well on your course. I don't think I would consider myself a hero after 10 years!

Hi Monda!
Illustrator is such an amazing software. I cannot use it as you can though. Your design is wonderful!
It's so complicated to use illustrator and I think you made the right choice to go on a course. :D
Look forward to seeing more designs!
