Creating my Portfolio

For my latest brief at college, we have been told to put together our own portfolio. Below are some pictures of what I have come up with. I have followed a plain and simple style as to not distract the target audience from my work(inside the portfolio). It includes lino printing, boxes, hand-illustrations and lots of brown.

Mother's Day Tulips

This is a collage I have made using the photographs taken of some Tulips I gave my Mum for Mother's Day. I layered them up and changed the colours to get this effect, it adds depth and a whole lot more colour to the original image.

Countdown to Summer

I literally cannot wait for summer! So on that note, I created this piece, using a photograph from previous a holiday in Tenerife and some typography. We work hard all year round and look forward to those important little breaks away from everything!

This is another piece Photoshop work, inspired by the saying 'Thank God it's Friday'. It being Friday I thought it was the right time to post this piece. I've used Photoshop to create a textured background and then simply placed white text on top, to contrast against the dark background, which really makes the text stand out.

Smoke and Sequins

This is the outcome of layering and editing smoke and sequins on Photoshop. I've lightened and darkened certain layers to get this effect, changed the opacity and put different effects on each layer, to come to this final look. I had fun making this, can't wait to play around with this style some more!!

Here are more edited sequins...

Playing around in Photoshop!

To get more to grips with Photoshop, I played around with different images of smoke and added colour to get this effect. I think my knowledge of the tools are slowly getting better!
