Making progress with Illustrator

This week, I’ve taken a pause in my learning about how to use Adobe Illustrator via Helen Bradley on Skillshare, and made some birthday cards while consolidating some of the techniques. These patterns all ship with Illustrator but I have also been learning to make my own. Think I might have exhausted this idea for now, but it actually inspires me to try a few silhouette ideas using real paint. Next up is learning to extrude – what a strange word that is when you think about it! – but for now here are the three silhouette birthday cards. They are matched to the recipients’ interests: 8 y.o. granddaughter, cycling friend, gardening friend. Hope you like them.

    These cards are so happy. The receivers will love them.


  2. Thank you! It’s really nice for me when things turn out OK and someone else agrees!
