Many customers have expressed how they would like to see more videos about the actual creative process and how to learn to have a "designer eye". For my video this week I actually designed a card from the beginning, showing every step of my process (complete with lots of paper pushing!). I am also focusing specifically on using color inspiration and how to achieve color balance! I hope you enjoy!
Now, be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of this post! I have provided you with several additional color challenges & inspiration pieces, complete with a free download that contains them all on one printable worksheet! This will be a fantastic resource for you to while you are creating!
