Hope is an Anchor for the Soul

A smooth sea may never had made a skilled sailor, but what better way is there to inspire your loved ones than with this meaningful gift? Imagine your thoughtful poster hanging on the wall at your loved one's new home or their mantelpiece, motivating them every day. With the love and dedication you place in creating this one of a kind poster, you are sure to make a gift that will inspire!

Our Goal: Create Motivational Art Work for Your Walls!

In this self-paced, project-based class, you will use Photoshop to add embellishments to word art to create a large-scale poster. I will show you how to arrange the elements, resize and balance type, add the anchor center piece and use the Photoshop CC Glyph Palette to create the swirls background, as we create art for your walls! Smooth Seas is a beautiful 11x14 inch poster which you can print to hang in your home, or give as a special gift. It will inspire us to remain hopeful!. I'm so excited to share the techniques with you, AND to help you create this beautiful artwork.
