Unfortunately, I can’t draw. Even with numerous classes and lengthy practice sessions, I’m still dissatisfied with what comes off of my pencil. Since I love to design, that’s always been a problem for me.
How do I deal with my lack of talent?
By taking public domain graphics and changing them till they suit my needs and my taste.
Here are a couple of ideas I’ve picked up over the years…
Start off with free, original clip art found over the internet (5).
Change the color of the edges of the graphic (4).
Change the color of the central part of the graphic (1).
Change the color surrounding the graphic (3).
Make multiples of the graphic and change the color (2).
Make multiples of the graphic (6).
Make sections of the image in a repeating collage design (7).
If you have any other ideas, please share them. I’m always looking for new ways to use old graphics.
