Using the Pen Tool Christmas Workshop

Submission 1: Christmas Wreath Motifs

I sketched several elements to use in my wreath in Photoshop. I used the pen tool for all of the basic shapes for the fruit, sticks, leaves, and berries. But, I had to use the free form pen tool for the more organic shapes. I am so pleased with how these came out. I could have never gotten this far in Photoshop without the lessons learned in this class. Believe me, I tried and never got past shut down Photoshop and open up Illustrator! Now, to assemble them into a wreath!

This was fun! I enjoyed experimenting with the various brush strokes. Perhaps I will use this on a card, but first I must work on the repeating pattern for the envelope. Thanks Krittika!
