I started with an outline of a girl then found a random paint brush that gave me the water color effect.

I painted with a low opacity so that it would look more water color:

Today I made a poster of all of the projects I’ve done this year:

all projects

All I did was copy and paste each picture on then I used the free transform tool to resize them.

I also worked on a few ideas for the design Im going to put on the top of my graduation cap.

Here was one idea:

grad cap 1

Here was the second:

grad cap 2

And for this one I would also put fake flowers around the edges like this:

Today I started my “final project”. The final project is an 11″x17″ poster. This poster is suppose to display the skills we have learned this year. We have until May 13th to complete it.

Today I made two separate posters that go together. I might make a few more and combine them all in the end to make one poster.

The first thing I did was use a paint splatter shaped paint brush. I used different shades of blue, purple and pink:

Then I selected a regular paint brush in the color white and painted the top border and the dots and for the 2nd painting I also selected different star brushes to put at the end f the strings. I also painted a moon on one of them:

Today my assignment was to create a letterhead and write a letter to my instructor. The letter involved telling her why I took the class, what I expected, What I liked and disliked about the class, and what my future plans were.

Heres the basic letterhead I designed (without the personal information) :

End of Year Letter without address

I designed it to look similar to my senior announcement. I just did a light violet background, added grey border to the top and left sides and added the flowers.

After that I started assignment 6 of Lesson 7 of the Non-Designer’s Design Book.

For this Assignment I made an envelope for Frillio’s Pizza:
