Blooming Skills

Ok! Hooray!
I’ve been working on this class for weeks. I started taking the “Affinity Designer” class from Liz Kohler Brown [looking forward to finishing and for more like it!], and that brought me to Society 6 and that brought me to Folklore and Nouveau and wow! I’m finally getting back to the Society 6 class. Here’s Liz’s Skillshare class list, in case you would like to try one or two or three.

My skills are blooming!
In the Nouveau class, I was inspired with an idea I’d been stuck trying to design but now had the resources to create: a “sunshine” floral for my granddaughter.

That design I duplicated to turn into a black and white design that Adobe Capture could vectorize so I could import it into Affinity Designer. I did not include the text, since that’s easily created in Affinity Designer.

I was able to group all the flower parts, the leaves, the stems, etc into group layers and then easily was able to color and add the text in many ways– here’s a screenshot of the layers and one of my designs [all layers selected for exporting].

I’ve created different styles of the same design of buttercups and leaves: texts, colors and backgrounds. I’m still refining for uploading into Society 6, but Wow!  This was such fun as I spent hours learning how to vectorize from ProCreate with Adobe Capture and then create groups/layers and recolor as needed. Great learning course and project.

I do have a question:

My iPad in Affinity Designer seems to only create documents at 72 DPI and I then need to adjust the size to 300 dpi.

I’m wondering — did I miss something in the settings? I cannot see a place to indicate DPI in the documents of Affinity Designer.

Bloomin’ Skills !

I feel like I’m a garden of blossoms now blooming with my new skills!  Glad to share and glad for tips: what are you learning?
