A while ago, I helped out my friend Elizabeth with designing a blog header and Etsy store banner. She wanted an image of a vintage typewriter, lots of florals and hand lettering.
I did most of the drawing by hand, with good old fashioned pencil and paper. That's what I feel most comfortable using. I ended up drawing it quite large! Then I scanned the images and photoshopped the pieces together (photoshop is a verb, right?)
Since the banners were wide I had to edit the size of the typewriter, and I also enlarged the flowers so they spanned the whole width. Then I using my handy dandy wacom tablet to color it all in... et voilà! Elizabeth has a new banner that suits her flowery vintage style.
This was super fun to work on with Elizabeth, and I'm looking forward to working with her sister, next!
