I wanted to announce that I am creating a beta course on “How to Create Digital Tie-Dye Patterns in Photoshop” set to launch sometime in the fall!
I wanted to create an in depth course to creating a digital pattern in Photoshop from start to finish– basics on setting up your files, how to compose patterns with step by step videos on creating a variety of different digital tie dye patterns, packed with some design principles, how to save your files, and access to all of the Digital Tie Dye Brushes I sell on my Creative Market shop! You’ll get a Standard Licensing to use and practice on while taking the course.
What’s even cooler is that you’ll get a free copy of an intensive e-book all about Digital Tie Dye Pattern Making which will be a companion book to the videos I’m creating! Coming soon!
I’d also love to hear your thoughts on what you’d love to learn and what are some of the struggles you have with using Photoshop or creating patterns and artwork in Photoshop! Survey closes August 5, 2019.

I wanted to share some wedding graphics I designed for my friend’s wedding! I really loved helping design some of the menu and welcome signage for their wedding a few weeks ago on August 4th. It was such a joy to create some work that was inspired by Palm Springs and geometric shapes for some of the designs! The wedding took place in San Jose, the wedding theme took inspiration from both Lily’s Vietnamese background and Mark’s Filipino background. It was such an awesome wedding that they put together, merging both of their influences in food choices and some of the wedding props and furniture that were hand selected by the bride and groom definitely reflected their backgrounds.
I couldn’t imagine myself spending months preparing and organizing all of the wedding details but a lot of our friends, including myself had helped out along the way. I know that preparing for a wedding takes a lot of hard work and energy, I am indeed in awe of Lily and Mark for taking the time and energy to create such a magnificent wedding. Check out some of the graphics I designed below for their wedding and some of the design choices I made as I created some of these elements for their wedding.
In action below! Typically the photobooth company will provide a template that you can plug in and drop the design elements onto. Printed size template is 2 x 6 in.
Printed size 5 x 7 in.
The theme of the wedding was inspired by Palm Springs with a desert vibe, so we chose some watercolor illustrations, some geometric backgrounds, and some gold frame vector elements to give it some flair. The best method of choosing the design of any wedding invitations, signage or menu design for a wedding is to make sure the elements are contrasting and not competing with each other, and that they are subtle and look good visually. A good rule of thumb when designing is to choose colors that are in harmony with each other, for these designs we chose a complimentary color scheme to reflect the style of the wedding, with lots of green succulents, we opted for a pink accent and that carried over to the flowers at the wedding. For the font choices we chose Palm Canyon and for the table numbers we chose Rollfast Black to match some of the geometric borders and backgrounds, we wanted to mix and match art deco elements to give it a visually interesting combination.
Some of the graphics and elements I use in these designs I bought from Creative Market, the links are right below if you are interested in checking them out! You can also find elements that fit within your theme and style through the website as they have so many different options and designs that you can choose from. I use pre-made templates and vector graphics to save time and most of the graphics are great for personal use, licensing on Creative Market is only required if you are going to use graphics on products that you are selling and making a profit from. But its great for personal use on projects like weddings and events, as long as you aren’t using the graphics to sell anything.
