I've been working on this class for weeks. I started taking the "Affinity Designer" class from Liz [looking forward to finishing and for more like it!], and that brought me to Society 6 and that brought me to Folklore and Nouveau and wow! I'm finally getting back to this class.
And my skills are blooming!
In the Nouveau class, I was inspired with an idea I'd been stuck trying to design but now had the resources to create: a "sunshine" floral for my granddaughter. That design I duplicated to turn into a black and white design that Adobe Capture could vectorize so I could import it into Affinity Designer. I did not include the text, since that's easily created in Affinity Designer.
I was able to group all the flower parts, the leaves, the stems, etc into group layers and then easily was able to color and add the text in many ways-- here's a screenshot of the different styles, texts, and formats that I'm still refining be for uploading into Society 6.
I do have a question:
My iPad in Affinity Designer seems to only create documents at 72 DPI and I then need to adjust the size to 300 dpi. I'm wondering -- did I miss something in the settings? I cannot see a place to indicate DPI in the documents of Affinity Designer.
I feel like I'm a garden of blossoms now blooming with my new skills! Thank you.
Update: I've got the DPI figured out -- thank you Liz.
As the sun sets earlier now and days are getting colder, I enjoy the color of the autumn leaves. So I recolored my floral design with the Maya Angelou quote. I wrote a bit about that here.
I tried to upload to Society 6. I was able to revise my shop header -- I already had one item uploaded, but now I cannot upload anything. I've tried many, many times with various sizes and designs and different browsers, but it just will not go to the "next" page. I've notified support.
I thought it was me and my images, but Red Bubble works perfectly. That means that Society 6 has an issue. Very frustrating, but I persevere!
I also uploaded my Warblers; they are not vectorized, however.
