“What is Creative Mondays?
Monday’s are always a drag. The start of a new week, you have to go back to that routine of going to bed early/get up early. If (like me) you have to commute then you prepare for that long journey into work and that long journey back for the first time after a nice two day break.
So to kick off those lousy Mondays, I’m going to get my creative mind flowing in a positive way. Creative Mondays. A chance for me to show off something unfinished or finished that I’ve been working on throughout the previous week.”
This week I took the opportunity to create something that I was inspired by from one of my favourite websites – PSDTuts+. If you don’t know about PSDTuts+ or their many other sites, they offer a huge variety of creative tutorials, quick tips, interviews and inspiration. A recent post showed how you can create a gold text effect by building up layer styles. As soon as I saw the result I thought of NIMH and the glowing red medallion (or Sparkly) that Mrs. Brisby is gifted. So I got to work, followed the simple instructions and created what you see before you! I think it would actually work quite successfully as a book cover!
