Hello friends! It has been a little bit since my last blog post; too long I regret to admit. I have been dabbling in the world of graphic design and am really enjoying myself. I have been struggling with finding the perfect direction for “Live, Love, Drink Wine” for some time now. Don’t get me wrong, I love my published posts, but I am looking for something more; I do not want to feel like any of my posts are forced or lacking passion. I also needed something really great to offer my readers in exchange for the amazing support and loyalty I have received.
Naturally, I am a very creative person so I figured I would play around with Illustrator (I had a free 7-day trial) and see how I felt about it. And, I have to say, I really enjoyed the process. I have so much to learn, of course, but I could really see myself expressing my creative side in a wonderful way! Not to say I am turning “Live, Love, Drink Wine” into a blog about graphic design; my skill level is not quite there yet. But, in the last couple days I have found myself finding some true inspiration and that makes me so happy.
In the midst of playing around with Illustrator, I did create something I wanted to give you this holiday season. With Thanksgiving literally right around the corner, I am very much in the holiday spirit and created a beautiful, gold foiled printable for to print right at home. Whether you use it all year round or strictly for the holiday, it will look beautiful either way. Check out my FREE Thanksgiving printable below:
This Thanksgiving printable can be printed right on 8.5″ x 11″ paper. You may need to trim the edges to fit it into your frame. I recommend using nice, cardstock paper. This print is meant for personal use only. At the bottom of this post you will find a link to your FREE Download.
I have some ideas in the works that are really exciting for me, but I am not yet ready to get into those until I truly figure out where they will take me. But, to give you a little teaser, it may involve an Etsy store……that is all I will say for now! But, I will keep you posted of course.
I also want to give credit where it is due for my inspiration and my “Thankful, Grateful, Blessed” print. I found wonderful videos on Every-Tuesday! Teela offers really great, straight to the point tutorials I found so helpful. In terms of the design, I downloaded some awesome graphics from DesignCuts. They have amazing resources for graphic designers at amazing prices and also have a wonderful Freebies section as well. I used the All Purpose Vector Supply Kit to make this printable; unfortunately that deal has expired. But, I am in love with their new Creator’s Artistic Supply Box, which is still available and let me tell you it is amazing! I also scooped up a calligraphy font bundle from Creative Market. I could not help it, I LOVE calligraphy font and it was such an amazing deal!
