So where am I at? I did my Kimono postcard lighter to get it closer to what I wanted and uploaded.
Post-it’s were on sale so did them. I decided to use a Creative Market weekly freebie. Remember you can only use the freebie design on one end product, up to 500 sales? I shot off an email to check if different sizes were ok. They answered different sizes but same design would count as one end-product but total sales for all sizes together could not be more than 500. (Note: I updated an earlier post with that info).
Ditsy Flower Patterns by Emma Make
So as you know, you have to change the design before you use it. You can not use the design as is. As you can see in this small cross section, the flowers are orange on dark blue stems. I shifted the color to yellow flowers atop green stems. Then instead of lowering the opacity like I did before to get the pastel look, I used blend modes on “Soft Light”. I liked the result better but actually had to do a few to make it paler. I chose yellow for the flowers this time so that even if it prints darker than I want, dark blue and black inked pens will still show up very well.
Next I moved some flowers and leaves around to work better with the size of the post-its. Because the 3×4 and 3×3 sizes only used the bottom portion of my design, I moved some more flowers into the bottom so they would show there. It was a little top heavy in the 4×6 so I removed a few things form the top quarter.
The result is a pretty feminine post-it that would easily show what anybody wrote on them.
I didn’t order these yet so no review.
