winter arabesque

by the time we got the january blogtrain theme & color palette i was already in full designing mode and really went overboard with creating an orient style kit.

but i don't care if it is a bit too much. it turned out so beautiful i had to give myself a round of applause when it was done! :)

included are various arabic symbols (tiles, damask, eagles, mosaic, i even threw a camel in the mix), focusing particularly on the textures (so you got metal bits, vellum, wire, leather, stone, even alu foil for some reason)

two features i'd say are my favorite here - the faux arabic calligraphy & the subtle iridesence tones

pretty labour intensive kit, i must say. but after hours and hours of doodling, painting & fiddling around with gimp i proudly present to you my Winter Arabesque:



and since our bedouin boys are currently playing the world cup in the desert, i figured it only makes sense to scrap a page for them


i wonder what magic you'll create with it?
