Designing Digital Birds For Self-Esteem Quotes

I’ve been wanting to design some stylized, whimsical birds for months. I have been watching the quote graphics that others have been designing featuring their stylized, whimsical birds. I have a Pinterest board full of inspiration. Last week I tried it. My first design was the blue bird at the top left. I really like how she turned out. Below is my computer workspace when I was working on her.

I am a self-taught graphic designer and I use Serif software. It rivals Photoshop but is much more affordable since there is no subscription. The suite includes Affinity Publisher, Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer. I included a link in case you are interested and I am not an affiliate. The programs are sold individually for under $50 and Serif often runs sales at 40% off. I started with Affinity Photo and I’ve never paid full price. I have been using the programs for years and absolutely love them!

I used my first bird to design this positive affirmation, healing art quote design. It is available on POD (print-on-demand) products at my Redbubble, faith-based shop, Draw Nigh To Hope. Here are some of the products.


Available On 81 Products 
 All about high self esteem, learning to love self because if we don't, who will?
This uplifting statement will encourage anyone, whether they think that they need it or not.

I will be designing other uplifting, high self-esteem quote graphics featuring the other birds. I’m so happy that I’ve been able to do this. If you’ve been wanting to try something new, don’t wait any longer. Get up in the morning and say today I will do it! Push past procrastination and fear and make yourself do what you know you can do!

Pet Products With Hearts Design

Spring Hearts is a watercolor hearts design in colors of pink, green and yellow on a white background. This hand painted design is taken from one of my original Hearts paintings. 

I paint hearts designs with leftover paint from craft projects, which is a green process. I scan the paintings and digitally alter them to create new designs and colorways.
