Magazine Spread Rough Draft


I started this project in week 7 by writing an article for the Ensign magazine and finding the images to use for my layout with a sketch of what I plan to do for my layout.  I’ve now taken that sketch a created a shape map (below).

Once I had my shape map created I then worked on creating my rough draft (below).

To create this I used Adobe Photoshop to pull the branch with the butterflies out of the background of an image I found on the internet. (source below)  I then used that image as my source for my color scheme.  I then found two contrasting fonts to use for my typography.  This spread, as mentioned in my week 7 blog post, is intended for Ensign readers.
