I am going to highlight some of the pieces I worked with from an incredible bundle put together by DesignCuts featuring the above artists plus many more. First to give you an idea of what we are working with here is a synopsis of the bundle called “The Extensive Hand-Crafted Design Bundle”
It's only available for a limited time; less than 8 days, so grab it now if you want it. They never repeat the same bundle. Plus it features:
The first Kit I worked with from the bundle was the Lisa Glanz “Spring Adventures Designers Kit”. Wow did this save me some time. I was able to start designing one of my Tea Talk™ kits immediately without having to design the papers or illustrations. Instead of taking me eight hours, I was done creating my own kit in two by using the pre-created illustrations and patterns in Lisa's kit. Check this out.
Then I worked with the So Nice “Bright Life Watercolor Set” within the bundle. It can be used for various purposes such as logos, wedding invitation, t-shirt, label, badges, greetings, packaging, stationery, posters, websites, digital presentations and more… What I used it for was a Planner set. Again since it included really bright watercolor illustrations I was able to create my sticker sets so much faster. Normally it takes days to create this many water color pieces and several more days to scan them in and clean them up to get them ready to make a digital illustration set. Having them done for me ahead of time takes days of work out of my time so I can just lay them up and create. Here is how the planner set turned out.
I have been super lazy by not learning to use my Wacom tablet. So I figured now was the time to figure out how to use it and test out this next package I will be discussing as I know I am missing a lot of opportunities by not using my tablet. For instance I still hand draw my illustrations and I know I can skip a lot of steps by just drawing straight to Adobe Illustrator. So I pulled out my tablet and hooked it up to test out the Creators Couture “Impressionist Masters Color Blends”.
This particular collection includes 175 PreFAB colors, carefully sampled and meticulously created from actual paintings by Impressionist Masters! The creator spent weeks researching famous impressionist painters and works. Then, painstakingly created color blends by pulling individual colors from small areas of their famous works to create color blends! You are literally painting with the same colors as Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Edgar Degas!
My first experiment was doing a couple of poppies. See Below.
Today I launched in the store an adorable Junk Journal that took me several days to create. I used PH Neutral PVA book glue for this project, recycled items from around the house, some of my old vintage papers, plus journal cards from my collection. This ring Journal can be added to and edited however you choose to use it. See the video for more detailed info and a walk through the book. Enjoy! Want to buy it before it's gone?
