If you didn’t know – today is Chinese New Year – Kung Hei Fat Choi! xx
2011, the year of the Rabbit – a better year is predicted and welcomed. 201o (the year of the Tiger) was a tough year for many and is followed by a more subtle nature, described as placid, refined, indulgent and comforting. I downloaded this fabulous brush set ‘Elements of Chinese festivals’ by Alex Zhang a few weeks back, hoping that I’d get to use them for something…and today I have.
I probably don’t do the brushes justice, but I’ve used typically bright colours to create a sense of warmth and welcome, a threw in a few pshop effects, (inner shadows, noise, textures and overlays).
