I love doing my art. I can spend hours using different blending modes, brushes, and adjustment layers to get the exact shape, value, texture or any of the other elements of design. I start with something familiar, and alter it into something quite different. It does not matter how long it takes. What if I could combine my love of visual art text in a book?
Actually, it is something that I wanted to do for a long time. When I first started, self-publishing companies were unknown. I use a software program called Microsoft Publisher to print my booklets. Printing in full color on multiple copies was just not practical on a home printer. Technology advanced and now there are multiple self-publishing companies. Printing in color has become easier and less expensive. I feel now is the time for me to start this new project of introducing background art and words.
If you are interested in publishing a book, do your research. Know the difference between text-only, black and white, and color printing. I will cover more of my journey into the world of self-publishing in future blogs.
Called "Beauty Indeed" this is a download available in my Gallery now. The words are taken from my book, Spirit and Heart Words to Encourage and Inspire.Here I only used part of the message. In my new book, I will use all of the words with backgrounds created specifically for each message of encouragement, inspiration, and guidance.
