Something I'm working on

I'm taking a course on how to design digi-scrap elements, for fun's sake, and hopefully some time in the future I'll be able to design kits, etc for fun or to sell.

Anyways, I've got a few things now I can share, so I thought I'd share them with you and ask for opinions Smile What do y'all think of these? They are 100% made on the 'puter by me (the only commercial use item I used was the flower doodle).

Okay... when you have your first CT call, let me know!!! Wink

I love the color choices - I'm not much for pastels for the most part, so these are right up my alley. Wink The texture on the metal paperclip are really cool. I love how you made so many different brads - lots of choices! The striped papers are really cool. I love textured solids. The only thing I'm not 100% sold on is the ones that are the other texture. I'm not sure if it's just my computer, but they look blurry to me. They look cute in the preview - almost felt textured.

Oh, and I love your new logo. Wink Meant to comment on that when I saw your siggy picture.

wow! awesome work Trina. I wouldn't know where to start with that kind of thing (I can barely digi scrap without taking forever). I love how you made the brads and tops of the decorative paperclips shine...really gives them depth. Great job!

I totally think you should design. Smile

I think you are ahead of some people who are already selling, honestly. Your dimensions/lighting are looking good. Cute, nice colors. Way to start!

Great work!

On the brads, the 2nd and 3rd from the left look the most real to me. The 4th from the left seem a bit flat in my perception. But for a first time... awesome!

The cloud texture? That was the 'assignment' I was following. I prefer the other ones too. And I think I should add some white ones, but I have no idea how to texture white yet (I always look for the white/neutral colors in kits, so that's why I say I should add some of white). Out of everything I made so far those were my favorite, I had a fun time creating them. The color palette I found from some bedding on target.com lol

Thanks for all the input ladies! When I finish the next lesson I'll have to show y'all some more Smile

That's hilarious! I love it when inspiration hits from the strangest places.

Yeah, the cloud texture is the one that looks blurry. I had a nasty virus, though, so that may have something to do with it, I dunno.

Gwen - the paper clips are actually a shape in photoshop and I added the layer style to make them metallic. Then on the fancy ones I added the brad to the top. The fancy ones actually had something like 6 layers to them before I merged them!
