eeeek! the things i've learned in adobe illustrator(r) this week

sketch flower pattern in different colorwaysdon't you just love it when you learn something new and you can't help but kind of freak out a little bit?! it's happening to me this week in alma's illustrator 102 class at nicole's classes.

the image above used to be a black and white image that i drew using my finger and the little track pad on my macbook pro. (this was before i got an awesome wacom tablet from my awesome hubs for christmas). i learned how to recolor the artwork with a couple clicks of the mouse in illustrator! oh, the possibilities are endless!i really want to get into fabric design, so knowing how to do this is vital in setting up a fabric collection.

if you like the colors i used, i got them from color collective which is one of my check-it-every-time-there-is-a-new-post blogs. i love the images and color palettes she creates. (and she properly credits the image source!)

i also {finally!!} learned how to do a screen grab on a mac....whoo-hoo!  i'm preeeetttty much a teenage girl right now.  except i'm not squealing about a silly little boy.....i'm squealing about ...computer software?!?  yup.
