Logo Design for my blog – “Bubble”
The logo is made from colorful rose petals. I had a bunch of colorful roses that is beginning to fade, in order to make its beauty to stay, I decide to take advantage of the rose petals to make my own logo for my blog, and to try something new.
The petals are so beautiful that inspired me to create some color combination. I use two pieces of old curtains as the background, a bunch of rubber band as decoration, and the petals as my drawing pen. Overhead is a photo I took for the most beautiful petals. I was so impressive and surprised to find out there are even some petals have the Gradient Ramp, which widened my inspirations of color combination.
Below is what I made on the curtain:
I made some color revise and delete the background of my feet:
I have tried some other possibilities to work on this photo, such to give the first letter “B” a shape change from the Myriad Pro Typo to petals, but I am still trying.
