Cover Art

I referenced a good book on color combinations a couple of posts ago and though I would share what we used it for.


These are some of the cover sheet designs for the Modern Masters stencil collection. I decided to forego actually stenciling them out by hand and then scanning the art as I wanted a more clean, graphic look for the retail environment they will be sold in. After I put post it notes on the color schemes I thought would work, Lauren (my in-house graphic artist) used those colors and some Illustrator tricks to create a “stenciled” look and then we tweaked them from there. If only it were so quick and easy to edit other things in life!

    Hi Melanie,

    Any idea as to when these will be available?

    Hi Lesley,

    To be safe, I would say two months. Maybe sooner. You’ll be the first to know! :)

    Yeah, pink and green is always a great color combo. Just ask Mother Nature!
