Today I continued working on lesson 4. I finished assignment 1 and 2. I started on assignment 3 but didn’t get much done.


Frascht Photography letterhead border finished


Frascht Photography letterhead repetition

My design already had elements of repetition with the border on the top repeating on the bottom and the color scheme being consistent. All I did was repeat the logos pattern in the background. I made the cameras face different directions.

Today I decided to redo one of my previous projects that I finished at the beginning of last semester to show how much I’ve improved with the tablet and photoshop.





New version:

I like the new version so much better. I used some star brushes that I downloaded for the sky. Im really happy with how it turned out.

I also started this project:

Today I continued working on assignment 6 of lesson 3.

I started over with it again.

new event poster progress 2

This is what I have so far.

I typed the font in different shades of green. I pasted the clover and used the paint bucket tool to color it white. I made a selection of the bottom of the page and colored it green. I moved the clover layer on top of the green layer.

Then I moved the font around.

Today I took a survey that had me judge all of my classmates movie posters. After that I worked on assignment 6 of Lesson 3 on the Non-Designers design book. I didn’t get far. Some of my artwork got chosen by the CareerTech state department to be displayed. So I spent some time editing the artwork by adding information they needed.

Today I started a new project.

I started painting on the tablet and this is what I came up with:

jungle girl3

I used the paintbrush and eraser tools for the entire thing. I forget to work in different layers when Im painting but I remembered to make another layer for the background this time.


jungle girl 2

For the back ground I painted it green then downloaded a leaf brush set. I painted the leaves in different shades of green. I wanted the background to match her green eye.

Today I finished assignment 5 of lesson 3 for the Non-Designer’s Design Book.

Yesterday’s work:

Frascht Photography Flyer edited font


Frascht Photography Flyer Edit finished

I moved the diamond in the middle of the photos to behind the middle square so that I could take the contact information out of center alignment. I also changed the font of the contact info to match the text I used at the bottom of the flyer.

Then I started working on redoing my event flyer following the alignment guidelines.

Today I continued working on Assignment 4 in Lesson 3 of the Non-Designer’s Design Book.

I decided to completely do away with yesterday’s design because I ┬ádidn’t like it. I went back to the original letterhead I had made:

Frascht Photography letterhead

I got rid of the top border, and the camera at the bottom. I changed the font of the contact info to match the font I used for the edited business card. I increased the opacity of the camera logo at the top to 100%. I got the background I used for the edited business card and pasted onto the letterhead. I moved it to the top left corner of the paper and stretched the image to fit the width of the paper. Then I dragged the bottom up so the border would be thinner. I pressed cmd+t then right licked in the square and chose warp. I dragged the points and images around until I git the shape I wanted for the top border. I duplicated that, then rotated the opposite way and moved it to the bottom of the page. I also changed the size of the font naming the business.

Then I duplicated the top layer again grabbed the paint bucket tool and paint the duplicate green. I placed that layer behind the top border but peeled it out a little. I did the same with bottom border.

I feel like this design is a lot more interesting and fun than the original.

After that I started on Assignment 5. I started editing my flyer to fit the principle of alignment.

This is what I got done today:

Frascht Photography Flyer edited font

All I’ve done so far is use a different font and decrease the size of the letters. I also moved them around a little to see where I wanted to put the text blocks.
