Tutorial: Working With Shapes

Today let’s take a look at working with Shapes: how to create them and the fun things we can do with them.

For the purposes of this tutorial,  I am working in Photoshop CC.    The Shape Tool can be found in the Tool Box on the left, and this is the same in all versions of Photoshop.  Click on the little triangle in the lower right corner of the Shape Tool to bring up all your options. In the image below, I have the Ellipse Tool selected.  Click on your choice to make it active.

By Design!

Over the past few weeks, I have had the delightful experience of collaborating on a new personal-use collection with Vero – the French Touch.  Vero is not only  exceptionally talented and artistic, with an amazing sense of color, but she is also a dedicated designer, with an engaging personality.  Vero and I found our work methods to be almost identical, which made the creation of “By Design”  a delightful experience on many levels!
