Summer is all about bright vivid colors for me. With so much sad in the news lately I wanted to make something happy. Something that would raise my spirits a bit every time I work on my computer or go to unlock my phone.
This design was born from a sketch I made a week or so ago. I really liked the florals but wasn't very happy with the lettering.
• I traced only the flowers with black ink for high contrast and scan them into my computer.
• Once in my computer I converted the line art into vector using the handy Illustrator Convert to Vector tool.
• After cleaning it up a little bit, I played with color a little and overlaid it onto a watercolor image I had on hand and changed the transparency of the flower artwork to "multiply".
• After working with the placement a little I created 2 different versions for different screen sizes and this fun wallpaper was born.
I hope you enjoy this wallpaper and I hope it brings you as much joy as it does for me!
