This peace art could make a lovely alternative Christmas Card. The peace symbol idea came to me so long ago and I’ve had a mock design of just the layout of the peace symbol, but never did anything with it until now. The peace symbol tshirt idea came first, and I developed the art around it from that initial idea. I’ve added textures from Flypaper and Shadowhouse Creations (thank you) and added other elements like the doves, which I created for another piece of and upcycled it. The doves were cut from sewing pattern tissue paper hence the lines you can see, with a splash of colour to bring them to life and bring compliment the colours in the peace symbol. I hope you like it.
More details about my method here:
At first I overlaid the words in a peace hand sign. Later I got the idea to use the same words overlaid on a peace symbol, then I came up with the tshirt design first (i did the original words with a pen/stylus on the iPad in Procreate). After I’d done the tshirt, I thought I could sit this peace symbol of just words alone on some textured background, I used Flypaper Textures (which I purchased for commercial use) and Shadowhouse creations textures (with permission) and did a lot of overlays and cutting in photoshop, developing the idea further until I arrived at this. I also utilised a dove that I’d cut out previously from some dress pattern tissue paper and coloured them in a reserved way, just to bring them to life. Most of the work apart from the lettering was done in Photoshop CS4 :)
