The Week in Review is where I combine Stacking the Shelves, The Sunday Post and It’s Monday! What are you reading? If you have never joined in on these meme’s you can check them out by clicking on the meme and it will take you to the host blog.
So Monday is my last day of Graphic Arts illustrator and in August I start Graphic Arts photoshop (the one I really wanted to try). I have really liked illustrator and learned a lot and have a lot more to learn. We present the magazine layouts on Monday. Here are a few of mine, I got bored as I was finished early and made like 7 but I will spare you all of them…lol.
I made two different creative barcodes and I thought the covers came out okay but I was having a hard time getting myself to put things on top my pretty picture I made…lol. Since it was Bing Crosby I tried to go with a more vintage look. We had to take the same selling points and make three different layouts. So mine was A Vintage Music Magazine Special Edition: The Top Five Crooners, Ella Fitzgerald talks about crooners and their music and Lyrics inside from Bing Crosby. 🙂 It was Vol. 1 Issue 1 LOL.
The sad part of my week came on Friday when I had to put down my oldest dog Squirt. I have had her for 16 years and we got her a few months after my mother died so she was extra special. She was just having to many problems and I knew it was coming then the day before we put her down she just couldn’t get her back legs to move and would drag herself around so we knew it was time. So it’s been a bit of a sad weekend but it’s getting better as time goes cause I know she is not hurting.
There is my squirty styling with a book…lol.
The countdown to my trip is making me a bit nervous as I really hate long flights cause I am a big girl in a tiny space. 🙁 10 days and counting! I am going to try and do some post featuring the Philippines while there so you all can see some of my pics. 🙂
