For Christine...

My oldest sister Christine has a website where she sells custom made jewelry. She has kindly allowed me to design a couple banners and avatars for her shop. Below is what we started out with. She loves the lotus flower- yoga is good to her, so she definitely wanted to incorporate it, the colors were of her selection as well. (Click to see larger size, better quality).



Then, for the Spring she commissioned me to update the banner. I did some light research and learned about some lovely colors. We kept with the lotus, but I went with bolder colors. I think I want to add more layers to it, but this is what I have for now. Though I went with these bolder colors, I attempted to soften it with a brown sketch line and font color. I think I need more trend education....
