August Birthday Webpage!

Happy Birthday Message ^_^

After over a month of no cards, my friend’s birthday came up earlier this month and I wanted to give her something since I hadn’t seen her in so long. Because she lives so far away, I decided to make another birthday web page for her!

I didn’t set any particular theme to follow so I got creative with another lettering piece which ended having an ‘organic’ styling. Below are some screenshots from the process ^_^.

August Birthday Message - Rough Version

I always do a rough tracing version first and then refine it. I find it makes the task seem less daunting when all I have to do is start tweaking instead of spending ages making each letter perfect the first time round.

Now all the letters have been smoothed out and I’ve added some colour. I didn’t like the black text because it appeared too blocky and took attention away from the decorative lettering.

I ended up getting rid of my block letters and replacing it with a font I felt suited the style much better.

The final birthday image was put into a simple web page and sent it onto my friend, you can still check it out here!
