1. Introduction to Graphic 103: Hello and welcome back to the designing on the go Siris. I'm your teacher, Samantha Wilson. I'm hoping you ready. Know me? If not, this might be your first time tuning in. Just let you know this is a 103 class. So the one on one and 102 class are down below in the link. Go ahead and click on those and take them first. But if you already have welcome. So excited to have you in our third class, this one. I know you guys are super excited. We're finally diving into the drawing tools. So we're going to hit probably the most important drawing tool ever. The pen tool. And we are also gonna learn a couple of the other features, like the text tool and also my favorite tool of probably the entire program, which is the shape library. It's totally gonna revolutionize the way you guys design some super excited to share that with you. I can't wait to see your projects at the end. And, uh, I'm so glad that you guys came back. I'll see you at the end of this class. 2. Pen Tool - Part 1: So now we're going to start learning all of the drawing tools. So the 1st 1 we're going to learn is the pen tool, which could be used to draw any kind of shape or a design. And to me, this makes it the most important tool that you could learn. Four Drawing within this app. So when you click on it, which it is located here on the left in your toolbar, it's the second tool down, and it looks like an old fashioned fountain pen tip. So when you select it down here, you're going to get four different modes. You know, you we've seen this with some of the other ones that we've done so for this particular one . Your four modes are your pen mode, your ad point, your delete point and your cut path. So in this video, we're just going toe learn the pen and in the second video will go ahead and do the ad point delayed point and cut a path. So go ahead and click on the pen. And before we start drawing on the screen, I want to point your attention to right here. This is your line and your fill color. You're gonna want to go ahead and put your fill color to zero opacity so that it doesn't show up. Reason being is as you're working with a pencil here, I'll just go ahead and show you if you had it on as you're working on stuff, it's as you're working on a design, see how it starts to fill in. That could be super distracting as you're working because we're trying to focus on the actual lines, not the fill on the inside. So go ahead and turn that capacity to zero and then pick your line color. I'm gonna use black because I think it shows up the best in this particular video. Also, another thing you're gonna want to dio is test out and make sure that you have your line, your stroke to a good point. I've got my net three just because I want it to be thick enough that you guys can really see it, but you might want to have it at one or whatever, and you know that you could go back in and edit that stroke later on. But I just wanted to point your attention to that so the first thing. I'm going to just show you how to simply use the pen tool and how to connect objects and how to leave them open or, um connected and make a full shape. So the first want first thing you're gonna do is you're just gonna tap so you can see that you've got a little blue dot there and then you'll just tap again. And so now you're creating basic lines. So the first thing that you can do is say I wanted to leave this shape just like this. I have no reason why would But say you did. You could go ahead and click out, like, up here, Click the Path Tool. And now it is its own shape. Now, if you were to fill it, it would feel like that. So it doesn't look that complete, Especially since the black doesn't go all the round. But that is how you would do that. Now say I want to decide. You know what? I really wanted to make this, um, connect, and I wanted there to be another point up here. So the first thing you do would select the path tool and you'd select your object again. I'm gonna zoom in a little bit so you can see it better. So the next thing I would dio is I would click back onto my pen tool, and I would click whichever point I wanted to continue editing from. So I'm gonna click on this one here, and then it has reconnected it so I can finish filling in the shape and make it a full shape. So now, if I was to go back in and add a color, it's fully outlined by my line color, which I could change. So that is how you would just do basic connecting. So now let me show you how to do a curved line. So click on that again, Turner. Phil, back off. And you would just click and drag cause you're gonna need handlebars if you're going to do any curve. So that's your first point. And then when you click on your second point, you click and drag again, and this is how you make a curve. That one's very, very basic. If I click and drag again, the curve continues. Oops, I was trying to zoom out, but as you can see, you just keep clicking and dragging. And I've made a nice little worm there. So that is how you would draw a curve. Now, say, I wanted to do a curve, but I wanted to do straight lines to see if I was gonna click. Right now, it will continue to curve because I have those two handlebars. But if I went back, gonna zoom in a little bit so you can see what I need to do is get rid of one of those handlebars so that it doesn't automatically curve. And this doesn't control the curve of the line. So the way to do that as we're still in pen mode, you click back on that last one. So see how one of the handlebars is now deleted. So this will allow my next line to be free from this curve. So now I could click and you've got a straight line. So if from there I wanted to go back into Sorry if I wanted to go back into another curve my next point, I would click and drag again, and then you'd be back into your girth mode lips. So that is how you would draw curved or straight lines and how you connect them 3. Pen Tool - Part 2: So in the second video, we're going to continue on learning with the pen tool on. We're going to first work on the adding point. So the first thing you're gonna want to do when you click to any of thes is your first gonna want to select the object with the path tool that you're going to want to add it. So now that I've selected a terrible head and zoom in as we focus on this so you can see that it's been selected, So then I'll click on the pen tool and I'll click on the plus. Now, this is great for being able to add, um, additional points on your object. So I would click that, and then I would just click anywhere on there. And as you can see, we now have another point on there. So that would be great if, like, say, I wanted to take this and I I had wanted to edit this than I can edit that point individually. And now you've got a house. So that is how you use the ad tool. Let's move on to our next shape over here, gonna select it again, just like I mentioned before with the PATH tool will go back to the pen tool and will go to the the delete point. So this is if I didn't want one of these points on there, I would click on that, and then you select it and it deletes that point. So I went from having five points on this particular object to four, and it obviously completely changed the shape. So that's that one. The last one that we're going to work on or learn is your cut tool. And let's do this one. I'm gonna go out and demonstrate it just on this one both ways. So for the cut tool, you can do two different things with the cut tool. The first I guess I do. First, you know, use the path tool select. Then we go back to our pen tool and won't want to select the scissors. So the first thing when you cut you can cut a complete side like that so you can completely cut your shape and and take off a complete side. Another option, though, is say you wanted to just cut it so you could edit that particular shape. So with that you would select aside and see how it added another point here. Well, now, when I go to the path tool and I click see how it literally cut the shape so I could edit it to be an open box. Um, so that is basically your pen tool in a nutshell. 4. Brush Tool: So next let's learn the brush tool the brush tools located directly underneath your pen tool, and it looks exactly like a paintbrush. When you click on it, you'll have to different tables pop up down here, which are your options for your brush tool. So the first has with and smoothing. So for those, the with is exactly what it's meaning. It's the size of your brush. Um, tip. So the higher up you have it, the bigger your brush tips gonna be. The smaller you have it, the skinnier and finer. It's going to be a so you can see the difference right there. Of those two, Um, down here is your smoothing. Now, the way that works is here. I'm gonna pitch it to a medium so I can just demonstrate it. So if 1/2 my smoothing out 100% look how scraggly this Linus, when I get done, it'll smooth it out some so it makes your lines always. I mean, like, no matter how wobbly they look, it Smoothes it out. Whereas if I had it at their percent and it was wobbly, it'll just continue toe. Let it be wobbly. So you can play around with that. See if you want someplace in the middle. Not too smooth. Um, not too rough. So that's those two. Let's get that guy down there. Over here. This little table is actually your settings for your brush, the actual burst that you're using when you click on it. Your first panel is your brush settings, so you can choose the roundness of your brush that you wanted it up 50% around so that it's more of an oval. You can choose the angle whether you want it to be a horizontal or vertical. You can also just grab here and rotates. You can really change, you know the way you want it to be right here. You can choose your mid with, and stuff down here is figuring out the smoothness you want of it. A lot of times, I'll reset and start from the beginning, and then just change the setting up here, right here is your preview for what your brushes going toe look like to see. This one's a small like it starts skinny and it goes thicker. So that was the one I'm using. And this is because I've got my pressure on. So if I had my pressure off, whatever you have set your brush tool to see, I had it skinny too thick. It's always don't do that. No matter how hard I push, it's always going to be the same. So for those of you that are doing this on an iPad, you're gonna you know, this will be toggled off because it won't be able to do the pressure sensitivity. If you have this on, just ignore this and ignore this because your brush is really going to be whatever you want it to be. A. So if I let me go ahead and delete thes, you couldn't see what I'm talking about. So sail Right now it's supposed to be skinny toe toe large. If I start, I can use my pressure to change it to whatever I want. Well, now it's edited what my brush setting will be. So if you're using the iPad pro with the pencil, you're gonna want to play around with whether you want the pressure on or off. If you want to keep it like you were using a regular brush, um, you might want to turn the pressure off so that you can actually choose and edit your your paintbrush to be what she want and then allow it to be very consistent. If not you just you know, you can talk about on and off now, once you have created the brush that you like, whether you want the pressure on her off, you can jump over here to save brushes, and you can click and add a saved brush to it. So then you can go back and have your different brushes and click on any of them. Me turn off the pressure sensitivity. This one starts thicker and goes thinner, sexy lips. I clicked out of that so lips. So when I click, see? So even if I start and I'm pushing down really hard the whole time, it's still going to do that because I don't have my pressure on. You can click in here and edit and select multiple ones to delete. You can. Also, once you've created a brush, click the safe brush and set, um, save it so that is our brush settings. Oh, and also, once you've created a line, it's a zone object so you can create lines to use. You can rotate them and all that. Since you've got your bounding box on, you can also go to your path part and click on the ends and the handlebars will pop up so that if sorry, it's getting connected to those other ones, so you can really edit the line that you've created, so it gives it really, really cool effects. And it allows you to add texture to your design and and different elements like that. So that is your brush tool. Now there's a lot of really cool things you can do with your brush tool, like out adding elements to text. And, like I mentioned texture on that, I am going to touch on all of those in the last, the last class when we get into the real advanced stuff. So for now that is your brush tool. 5. Pencil Tool: So now let's talk about your pencil tool. It's located right next to the brush, and it looks like an old fashioned pencils. Very simple. This is just like the brush brush tool, but you really only have the option for the with and smoothing. So it's just a standard pencil. This is great, for if you want Teoh start sketching in items that, you know, like basic sketching. Um, you could also use that if you pulled on image in and you wanted to sketch it. So I'm gonna move the with to that and I don't know, put the smoothing in between and to see cause I have the smoothing on. I can kind of write something in. It'll change the way it looks. So you can use that for that. You could be drawing objects. If I turn this moving completely off, you can kind of sketch like that could make them as thin as you want. Like you were using a small pencil. You can make him thicker, so it looks more like a marker. So basically, the pencil tools a great way to just sketch out designed. You can even use it within your you know your actual elements. And the great part is is everything that you've already drawn already has all of it. Um, it's already been made into a path. So that makes it really easy to go back in and edited and go up here. And you can change your stroke and add Phil and shadow to staff. And, you know, just all kinds off, um, fun options from that. So that's basically your pencil tool. 6. Eraser Tool: So now I'm gonna show you you the eraser tool. So it's located right underneath the brush tool. It looks like a little eraser, very easy to find. And I'm gonna show you a little bit of a couple of different ways. You can erase objects, so the first thing you've got down here is your table. And that's where you can decide. Ah, the with of the actual racer. So I haven't currently set to 31. So the first thing we've got is this line right here that I had drawn with my brush tool. So you can erase this in two different ways. The first is just by cutting through it like that, or you can actually click on the actual points within an object, and it will erase and delete those parts. So it kind of gave it a cool little fact. They're looking like maybe some fish off in the distance swimming. You can also just scribble over the entire thing and delete them as a whole. So another thing is, see this oval right here, Say, for some reason, I wanted to cut it in half so I could actually just erase right through it. And now we have two separate objects. Those objects can be moved independently, so you could put thumb back kind of close together. And if I was to change the color of this, I could have a little coffee bean. So it kind of gives that a cool effect. Another thing you can do is actually a race. Um, you know, with lettering. So I've got this rectangle here. Get a zoom in on it. Okay. So right here, I could write hello on, right there. Now you've got a word written in there so kind of something fun that you can play around with. And, uh, that is basically your razor Jewell. 7. Text Tool: So now let's learn the text tool. So over here you're going to click on the tea and immediately a box is gonna pop up like this. Now, as you can see, the text is already enclosed in a bounding box. So just like you learned with the shape tools and some of the other ones, this bounding box allows you to rotate resize and move around. Um, the actual text. So now let's go ahead and add it. The text that will double tap just like it tells you to hips. And as you can see, a pop your keyboard. Now, you have some options right here to go ahead and make changes to your text. The only catch is you have to type that are you change? Make all these changes before you type in any of your texts, so I'll go ahead and walk you through what they are. But I prefer to use, um or make changes to my text up here in the appearance panel afterwards. So the 1st 1 right here, this is your your line spacing. So say, I had three different lines of text. You would click on this and you could change the actual spacing between each line right here is your spacing between each of your letter. So if you have the word hello, it's actually the space between each of the letters of that word. Right here is where you could click Teoh, make selections on your different fonts. And then right here you can change the size so you could hit up or down on that, right? Here's where you would change the alignment. So you've got four different options there, and then right here is where you could change the actual text color. And whenever you've clicked into any of thes like, say, I was gonna change the tax. Once I've picked on my option, just click anywhere and this will pop back up. So I'm gonna go ahead and put in the word hello, because that's a very simple and fun word to work with. And then I'm gonna click down here to get rid of my, um, text. I'm gonna zoom in so we can see some of these changes as we make them. So as I mentioned to go up here to your little I and this is your appearance panel which we've used with a lot of our other objects. So the first thing you've got is your stroke right here. So right now, this is just based off of Phil. So the fellas you can see is black. So if I was to take the fill off, there would be nothing, because your stroke is that zero. But if I increased my stroke, as you can see, it also increases the thickness of my letters because I have both of them on. So you can change that right here. You can change the outline color right there by clicking on any of those, um, brush. You can play around with brush. If you really wanted Teoh, it could really change the shape of your object. But there's another way to do that also. But say I was to click on something here. Obviously can. You can change around the way it looks, Um, but it might be easier just to do the other option later on. That will show you. So let's keep moving down. So right, here's where you would change your text. If you click on this, you could click up here and click through and change to a different a couple of different ones as you saw some of those didn't show up, and that's because my bounding box isn't big enough, so I would have to decrease my font size or make my bounding box bigger to see the text. So we'll go back to our original text and go back here. You can change size right here and your alignment right here and then, as I mentioned before in the on that keyboard, Here's your spacing for between your lines and then your character, so I'll show you the character, since we've got this right here. If I started clicking hips, if I started clicking up on this, as you can see, I can make the space between the letters wider. So that's that part right there for your text. Next, you've got your fill so I could change the fill color so you can click on any of these colors. Let's make it pink. And then if I added the stroke back in now you've got where each one of them is outlined in black. I'm gonna skip image. I'll come back to that, but then you've got shadow right here. So if I click that and click on Shadow lives. You can see you. You've got a nice little shadow that's appeared on your text. Now I'm gonna zoom in for a second and then we'll go back to shadow cause I want to show you some stuff with that so you can pick your color right here. So say you wanted grey or light gray or even a specific color. You could click on that there and change. You know your decision on that. You can also change the opacity of that particular color. Then you've got your bowler now blur. If you concede e as I as I decrease the size of the Blur, it becomes stronger and more defined of a shadow. Where is the more I go out, the more blurred it actually comes. So that's what the blurred tools form going to drop it down to there, so kind of more defined. The axe and y offset is just X y. How far you're moving it. So if I move more of the X offset, it slides it more to the right, and then the why would drop it down below. So those were fun little options. You can play around with to really, you know, give your letters some some more elements to it. And then down here is your opacity that you can change for the entire, you know, word. Now the next panel is your effects. These are all the different ones that I'm actually using right now. So you can see these check marks. I'm using the tax. I'm using the stroke and I'm using the drop shadow. But we have some nut other options within here. So, like an inner shout shadow would be actually within the text to see when I click that on now, the text itself has got a shadowed look to it. And to change any of thes, you would just click right here to change. You know what color your inner shadow Waas. I'm gonna go ahead and click that off. You got outer glow now, This is perfect. For if you're doing a neon sign effect, you would want to use your outer and your inner glow, or maybe just your outer glow to give it that neon effect, and then you can blur all of it. Although I'm not really sure why you would be blurring all of it so those your options in here and you can add options and you can also delete option so I could remove these if I wanted to make sure that they didn't accidentally get turned on within my piece for this particular one. The last little when you have right here is your styles. Now, this offers different like fills and stuff. Now, these air pre made ones that they have already created, like that one's a really, really cool one. Um, Now, if you don't like any of thes, you can fill it with your own so you can edit click on any of them and delete Um So, like, say, you've created this and you're like, Oh, I totally want to keep this complete design option. T plug in on top of other tax. You could click this place down here and now you've got another text option. So if I was to type in a different word, I could immediately let's make this one say bye so I could immediately go up here, click on that text and then immediately reapply all of those options to it. So that's a good little handy. Ah, way toe to be able to use those. Um, okay. Now I promised I'd come back to image, so let's go ahead and do that set. Let me zoom in. Now, this is selected, as you can see with the bounding boxes. So say I wanted instead of like a Phil, you know, inside here I wanted to place an image like, say, water, which is exactly what we're gonna dio. Still click on the image, Phil, change your image and I have saved one of my waters, and it will immediately fill it now, As you can see, it didn't fill it properly. So let's go back in there and see what happened. As you can see, it's on scaled if it we want stretch to fit. So it covers everything so you can add really cool elements here. You could change the opacity if you had a back color in there, like I dio, um and then say I wanted to remove the stroke. You could do that so that it just water You could add or change the shadow. If that Phil had been just, uh, instead of pink, it had just been like white. Then it could have been less opaque and had a cool element to it. So that's how you do that. And then let me go back to our original texts. Now, the last thing I wanted to show you about the text is you can also turn the text into, um an edible vector. So to do that, you would have it selected like I dio and you'd go up here, got to remember where it iss. There we go. OK, so you would go up here to, um, the two pieces of paper and you click on path here and you can see confer text toe outlines . So I'm gonna click on that. And now when I click, you can see each letter is its own object that I can move independently, and I can also edit it. So that's great. If you're really wanting to take text that already exists and make it your own because say , you really didn't like the way this e looked and you wanted, you know that to be higher up lips, Obviously that's not perfect. I would have removed that part right there, but it really allows you to take text that you have purchased are used and really make it your own, um, within their. So another feature I want to show you with the text is adding your text to a line that you've created. It could also be a shape, but it's easier with lines and easier to show. So I've already used the pen tool to draw a little half, um, half circle, and I've already use the text tool. I just clicked on it and typed in the word the Hello. So if I want this to be on this the way you would do it, issue would click and drag to select all of them. So both my text and my line are selected. So go back up here to the two pieces of paper and I'll click on it and I'll go to the third option, which is your path. And right here you can see place text on path. So I click on that and hopes this line was not big enough There. We guess I'll just drag it a little bit more. And as you can see, my word has now been added to my text. So from here, if I go back in here, I could release my text from my path. Or I could also take that and convert my text into outlines like I just showed you right before. So that's another fun, um, option of stuff you can do with your text. 8. Rotate, Scale & Shear Tools: So for this video, we are going to go over the rotate tool, the scale tool and the sheer tulle decided to group them altogether because their settings are very similar. Um, and so it just made it a lot easier. So the first we're going to do is the rotate tool. You can find it right underneath your shape. Library. Um, it's right here. It looks like a little box that's got an air over top of it pointing over. So when you go ahead and click on it as you can see, this table comes up down below. You've got your angle, your rotate and your copy. Um, I don't know if you can see this. I'm gonna zoom in. But as soon as I selected this rotate tool right here in the center of my design, the one that had already been chosen are selected. There is a little plus sign in there, and that is, um, your point where if you were to rotate it, it would be rotating from, So, um, I've got it at 75 degrees. So if I click, rotate as you can see, it just keeps rotating, and it's rotating around that that center point. If I click copy, it will actually rotate a copied. So that gives you this really cool effect. You could keep going and make a really cool star. Um, let me go ahead and go back. And then the other thing you can do is you can actually move that point to see how the plus is over there now. So if I zoom out and I click copy in the rotate, I got a select that. Sorry. Let's try that again. So I'm gonna move my point over there. So when I kit copy. So this one will stay stationary and the new one will move. See? It's not only cut made a new copy, but it rotated from this point right here. So if I continue to click, that is just going to keep spinning around that original point. So that is your rotate me. Delete these guys. Okay, So our next one is your scale tool, and it's located right to the right of the rotate. And when you click on it once again, we get a table down here, and this table has your horizontal vertical scale and coffee. So if you want to keep this proportional. You're gonna want to keep your your scale numbers your horizontal and vertical the same. So if I was to just click scale right now, see, it made it slightly smaller, slightly smaller, slightly smaller. Let's go back. If I did the copy scale, it'll keep adding, Which kind of gives that a really, really cool effect? Because all of a sudden we've got several stars together, but it's giving it a really, really cool effect there. Let me go ahead and back out and get back to our original hips and then, just like before, you've got the little pointer guns. If I clicked over here and did the copy scale, it's gonna make smaller and smaller stars as it works its way to that point. So that is your scale tool. Oops. And then last azure sheer tool, which can be used to slant objects. So, just like with our scale one, we have a horizontal and vertical degree, and then your sheer and your copy, so I'm just gonna leave it up. The settings that already popped up and my click sheer as you can see it, totally slanted our star. So if I go back and do a copy Sheer, you couldn't see it? Um, once again can make a really, really cool effect there. And if we if we go ahead and move the spot, um, our point about our point of origin, it will just keep making them smaller, just like before. So that is basically your rotate your scale and your share tools. 9. Shape Library: Okay, so now I'm going to show you guys probably one of my favorite features off this program. And that is the shape library. Um, it is this little rectangle over here. It's got a couple of shapes in it, and it's on this far left sides. When you click on it, it's gonna pop out like this. And I have to say, this is like my secret weapon on being able design things super duper fast. So when you open your eyes, you're just gonna have their default libraries, which have things like floor plans of your own interior decorator. Oh, you now can add little toilets and stuff like that to your designs. They've also got some at mock ups, some numbers and some basic symbols. Those are just things that they've given you yourself. But you can use this little plus sign down here, and you can add your own library. So, as you can see, I have definitely added lots of different libraries. Um, let me just show you real quick how to edit them. Once you've added them in, you can click at it here and like so I wanted to change the name of this one, I would just click on it and then I could delete and type in whatever I wanted. You can also select them to export. Like if you wanted to share this with a friend that also had this and say, you've created this great shape library and you really want to share it, You could do that and you can also use the garbage can to delete them. So let's go ahead and jump into one, and I'll show you what I've got in them. So, like this accent, one basically a ton of fun, different shapes that I've got some of these things I've designed myself. Others are things that I have purchased like packets from creative market. Um, you know, that different other designers have already done. And so I mean, each one of these is its own, um, you know, vector shape that I can add it however I want, but it saves time because instead of drawing a heart, I can already have hearts in here. So one of my great favorite things that I do with it is I have my color palette in here. So these are all of the colors that I use typically when I'm designing like my printable Soto have the men here means that if I'm designing something new, I can just click on them and drag them off to the side and have them there to eye dropper on to change the colors of the objects that are actually on. Whatever I'm designing, um, you can use it for lettering so you could create a draw, letters yourself and then, um, add them in here. So, like anything I have created, I can click. We'll go back toe accents, and then you can click this plus sign right here and see it gets added on right there. And then you can edit and delayed objects just like that. So this is a huge time saver. So, like, I use a lot of flowers and foliage, so I already have, like, all of these different objects in here. And then I can just change the color, rotate them, you know, add elements to them. So I really think the shape library is probably one of my favorite things to be able to use . You can also do P and G's in here. Um, so for the P and G's, um, some of them aren't actually, um, like they're not edible. They're not vectors, but their images that I've pulled in. I did not know why that one's not opening. Okay, we'll skip that one and will jump to a different one. Um, didn't add anything to that Lenya. Let's see. Oh, so, like, patterns. So in my patterns, I've got a lot of different pattern options in here so I can click on them. But obviously, other than changing their size, um, it's a pattern I can't I can't change it individually, but I can use it in my design elements of the background for like a five by seven wedding card. I'll show you how to use patterns eso for some advanced features in the my 104 advanced class that will be released in November. But I really think it's great because you can have all these patterns in here and then just have them at your disposal, which makes it a lot quicker. Teoh design stuff. So that is your fabulous shape library 10. Class Project: Okay, so project time. So, for this class, I want you to do a class project similar to the one or two class. But this time I want that illustration to be, you know, quite a bit more advanced. Now, you don't have to do an illustration. I know some of you are probably, like, who wants to draw Snowman like we did in the last one. And like I said, you didn't have to draw Snowman. But this one. Now that you've got your shape library and you've got the pen tool, you can really, really start to design some really cool illustrations. So you know some examples or you could create a baby shower, invitation or wedding invitation, because now we're using the text tool. You can incorporate the shapes, just kind of take everything that we've done so far. And whatever items you typically design at home, maybe it's a logo. Any of that. Go ahead and design one of those. And, um, I'm looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with. I will, of course, do a mini video. Um, well, not many. I don't know how long it's gonna be, but I will do a video for you guys to show you a design. And this time I'm gonna do a wedding invitation. So I'm super excited to show you guys. Um and, uh, thanks so much for coming back, and I can't wait to see your project. 11. Class Project Example #1 - Save the Date: 12. Class Project Example #2 - Happy Halloween Card: 13. Final Thoughts: so thank you so much for tuning in and joining us for the 103 class. I cannot wait. Have you guys back in two more weeks? On November 11th when our advanced class will release that one will tell show you all of my tips and my tricks and a couple of the features that I didn't show you guys yet because they were something you don't need to know to design. But there are lots of fun. So I'm looking forward to seeing you guys in a couple of weeks and thanks again for taking this class by
