Carly Jepsen - CD Cover by =linepau1 on deviantART

I enjoy doing CD covers, although I'm not all that good at them yet.

This is an album I done for Carly Rae Jepsen. Her song "Tug of War" caught my attention, and I've fallen in love with her music.

The CD cover is actually pretty basic. Stock credits are on deviantart. The photos were touched up as needed, then I added two extra layers. One with flat black color, the second with a gradient that faded invisible towards the middle. I then messed with their settings. The text is a white, and light gray. One has been screened, the other dropped opacity.

I also edited out her glasses in the first picture. THAT was fun ;_;

Please feel free to critique either here or on deviantART if you with to leave some feed back. All types of comments are welcome, unless they are rude of course =).

I've been eying D.I.Y.: Design It Yourself in the book stores for quite some time now. I picked it up tonight, and I just wanted to say that so far it's an excellent read!

DIY won't make you a designer, but it gives you simple tips, and ideas to use as inspiration for projects featured in the book. CD cases and covers, towels, tee shirt designs, and SO very much more are covered. Hell, even blogs!
