Project Description

Create your own animated snow globe using Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop and upload a GIF file on the project page. You can draw it all for yourself or use the snow globe template that you can download in class. If you need inspiration I’ve prepared a Pinterest board filled with fun snow globes to get inspired of, you’ll find it here. Feel free to use the same free Google font as me - Mountains of Christmas, you can download it here.

TEMPLATE

You can download this snow globe template in the right panel here on the project tab, as an Adobe Illustrator cc 2018 file. You can use it if you want to skip the step to draw the actual snow globe.
