Seeing as I will probably be doing quite a few of these step-by-step blog posts about how I make my title backgrounds I figured this title would be more appropriate than “Random Doodles”. I was an absolute plonker and took the first pictures in really bad lighting so it only looked like scribbles on a…

Review: Illamasqua Masquara

Disclaimer: Item provided for review. All opinions are my own. A few days ago I received a package from Illamasqua. Hehe I was hoping it was going to be a bit of a sneak peak into the up coming Theatre if the Nameless. It ended up being the mascara from the upcomming collection but no…

Personalising Your Mobile

Random Doodles Pt.3

While I’m on a role of showing step by step how I create my title backgrounds I thought I’d show you this one I designed. I started out with just a simple black page (in Photoshop) and then with the paint tool began layering colours over each other and drawing each little star. This is…

Random Doodles Pt.2

For this one I wanted to show you roughly how I go through making my title backgrounds. In my last post I showed you this design which I had been working on for the title background of an Arabic makeup series I want to do. Once I’ve drawn roughly what I want I take a…
