Malt Shop

I have been drawing in a sketchbook since I was a little girl, and I have finally decided to start producing them as digital illustrations. To keep my design abilities fresh, and to build my portfolio I will be trying to produce of these each week. Life tends to get in the way of my designing, but I am going to try!
This is the sketch that I started with
Then I drew it out as a vector file in Illustrator
Then I added some texture in Photoshop to finish it off

Heart Day

Hope everyone had a nice Valentine's Day! I have always been a fan of Valentine's because of all the hearts and the glitter! When I was little I loved making my own Valentine's to pass out at school. Now, I get to design Valentine's that people buy to pass out!

Here is a handmade Valentine that I designed last year. Complete with glitter, foil, gems and a real key attachment!!!

Complete view with silver envelope.

Sparkly Starburst

Happy Tuesday everyone! Well, my new year resolution to post every other day has not had a great start! My goals to deign more and do more glass have not been happening either! Being sick really gets in the way of your plans.

Anyway, this week I thought I would post one of the cards that I designed at work. I love this card so much and am very happy with how it turned out.
This card has silver foil, gold foil, red glitter, glitter, emboss and gems.
