Just for Fun & Giveaway Winner.
I’m finishing up my first semester of graphic design class, something I’m doing on the side at a community college… just for fun. Just a few months ago, I had no idea how to use Adobe Illustrator & only minimal knowledge of Photoshop. And now, the pen tool is my best friend. :] We had to submit a CD cover design for a project yesterday & I scrambled to put it together in time, but was really pleased with the final product.
I used a CD that S made for me on our one year anniversary of dating. He compiled some songs that were meaningful to us at that time & put together his own CD cover design for me. It was such a sweet & sentimental gift — I loved it. :] I used all the same songs, stole snippets from his wording, but re-did the entire design.
I titled the CD “The Beginning” to commemorate that precious year and a half before we got married. My favorite parts of the design are the floral prints that I actually snatched from Anthropologie’s rug collection haha. Love those (even if I can’t afford them, I can admire them from afar). So thankful for this unique little time I have right now to be taking classes, learning new skills, & pursuing hobbies/interests. Next class on my list: typography!
