Work In Progress Wednesday…

Wow it is Wednesday – HOLY CRAP!!!!

I am working on a ton of stuff relating to my Graphic Design Project (I am going to do a sneak peak of the design project).  I also have a cute V-day Card started (not a fan of hearts or V-Day but it is the right thing to do).

Savannah Traveler Logo no shadow

Logo Design for Savannah Traveller.  We were going for a simple logo that would look good on letterhead, business cards and anything else.  Sixteen designs later this was the one that was picked.

Template Ad Page ST 1 copy

Sample template of the design.  The map is way to big and is only 75% finished so I am not going to show it.  Considering my laptop is chugging away like a small train up a large hill – I keep saying “I think I can, I think I can!”  I will be getting a new computer in the next couple of weeks I am making the move to a MAC – I am so excited and a little scared because I need to get Photoshop, Illustrator and Fire Works for a Mac.  Not to mention Windows 2011, I hope that I am able to find them cheap on Ebay.  I am a little hesitant on purchasing an opened box from Ebay because of the licensing of Adobe.  I am so afraid I will get screwed some how but spending $1000 on a design program is a little out of my price range.  I also don’t qualify for the Student or Teacher Edition of Creative Design Suite (and Adobe does check this).  I am hoping to find a reasonably priced CS3 or CS4 and then when CS6 comes out in another year or so making that jump.  I see much more design work in my future so I know this investment will pay off.

VDay Card001

My Valentine’s Day Card made from an old cereal box.  I covered the box with a parchment type of paper then used red and fuchsia stamp pad to stamp around the hearts.  I also sprayed the card with my homemade red glimmer mist.  The hearts were cut out of an old cereal box then covered with metal tape.  I Zetangled the metal tape hearted with an embossing tool, then covered it with ink from the stamp pads.

I plan on doing some calligraphy on it but I am not sure what.  I am pretty happy with it so far.

So that is what I am working on this week.  I am also making sugar cookies for a Super Bowl Party this weekend (50 PACKERS Logos – lol!)  I hope to actually have some finished pieces to show soon Smile
