Ever since I planned a little wedding, I have been dabbling a bit in design. Mostly invitations. Occasionally other things. And since I don't yet have Illustrator or Photoshop, I do all my designs in....
Yep, good old microsoft word.
Thanks to Bill Gates, i can design my own invitations! This is a ridiculous statement, I know. I mean seriously, who does any sort of real designing using microsoft word??
Ummm, me? Cause I don't have enough money to buy anything better?
Now before you scoff at me and tell your best friend and/or significant other how I've gone off the deep end, check out my latest design. Mostly cause I'm a wee bit proud of it.
Backstory: Long ago in my wedding planning days, I came across this little site weddingbee.com. It was lovely! Lots of girls, planning weddings, and willing to help you plan yours!
Long story short (cause I seriously gotta go to bed), I check weddingbee from time to time, in search of ideas for parties and whatnot. This past weekend, I read about a girl who had been planning a circus/carnival wedding. I was like, "oohhh I should make an invitation." You know for poops and giggles.
And this is what I've come up with...in microsoft word:
Just like a little ticket, eh!
And then.... my real pride and joy:
Remember that blank screen up there? Yeah that's what I started with. Then I made all those little stripes and then all those little gray hanging down things. Yep. Each little one. It took a while.
So there you have it. Invitations via Bill Gates.
Si se puede, peeps.
