I'm back with another blog post, this time, a quick tutorial on how to create your very own bookmark using Adobe Photoshop (or any other similar software).
The first thing I did before starting was to research for inspiration. A single click on Google image search brought up thousands of inspiring patterns, cuts, and palettes to choose from.
After seeing some samples, I went on to search for the standard size for bookmarks, which is 2 inches (width) and 6 inches (length). One of the bookmarks I have here at home was 7 inches in length, so it really just depends on what size you want.
Aside from inspiration, you must also have elements for your design, which means free vector/png/icon stock from the net. I got my background from Deviantart while the other elements I designed myself. Another useful site to look up is Kevin&Amanda's free font archive. I'm a font-lover, so this place on the web was heaven. Check it out!
With everything under the hood, let's get on with creating!
(click the images for a larger version or simply hit "Ctrl +" on the keyboard)
And we're done!
(Whew, it's my very first tutorial so it was exhausting to make! hahaha! It was still fun though.)
Tell me: Should I do more (advanced) tutorials in the future?
