[5.22.2014] unity thursday fun
Time for some more THURSDAY fun with the Unity design team. If you haven’t been hopping along, all the action starts on the Unity blog. There’s always fun stuff going on.
I needed a quick birthday card for my brother-in-law, who just so happens to be older, wiser & better in every way. Ha.
For my watercolor set up, I use the glass from a dollar store frame (with taped edges for security) and then painters tape to hold my watercolor paper down flat as I color and while it dries. Keeps everything all nice and secure. You can see how that works in my video below. I added a little salt at the end to see what it does to the watercolor. I like the little bit of speckle. Unfortunately, I had to run to the kitchen and find it in order to use it. My paint dried up a little too much, so I’ll have to try it again sometime.
Here is the Assemble This! Snippet video showing how I created the watercolor color blocked background with a little salt. You’ll see how I started out trying to mask off a circle before watercoloring. I wasn’t happy with the way the color bled under the mask, so I ended up covering it up with a popped up circle instead. No worries, it is all good, just how things go sometimes. Ha.
