Hand Lettering Practice this Weekend

This weekend I got to spend time practicing some lettering and refining some designs in photoshop and illustrator.
 
I started out working on”happy birthday” because it was our friends birthday friday. I wasn’t able to complete it in time for his party however, so you can see what I made below instead.

After I made my happy birthday sketch in pen I scanned it in and used my Wacom Cintiq in photoshop and made edits and touch-ups with the brush tool.  First with a red brush on a new layer to show where I wanted to change my scrolls and flourishes, then refined switching between a black and white brush.

 

Here is the final happy birthday lettering.

For our friend tim’s birthday card I used an idea I had for a beer tasting party invitation and ended up turning it into the birthday card.

For the birthday card I created the elements in illustrator based on the sketch and ended up reworking it into the final composition. (With the help of my husband). Thanks honey. 

The final card is printed on watercolor paper. I laid it out in the lower right corner of an 8.5 x 11 page so that i could trim and fold it properly.

April 2nd: I share my birthday with Minted.com

I received an email yesterday and was thrilled to see that Minted Affiliates recognized my birthday! They even had all of these interesting facts about April 2nd such as, “It is the day the first motion picture theater opened in LA (1902).”

 

I was wondering how they could do this for everyone and even include a fact about the city that they live in…but it turns out it is Minted.com’s birthday today as well. This year they turn 5.

 

Happy Birthday to Minted.com and myself! I turn the big 3-0.
