Femgeek Digital Bunting Tutorial

Today we’re going to learn how to make some digital bunting.
You can download the brushes used in this tutorial here.
All the stock images used are from sxc.hu.

First create a new document. 851 x 315 px.

Bunting Step1

Then hit cmd + R (ctrl + R) to enable rules. Drag two rulers to divide the canvas into thirds

buntingStep2

Select the pen tool. At the top of the screen select the ‘paths’ option and create a new layer.

pathsOption

Using the pen tool create a straight line from where you want your bunting to start and end. Click once on the left, then click once on the right. Then move your cursor to the middle of your line and a little + icon will popup next to your cursor. Click. Then with your mouse still near that point hold down cmd (ctrl) and drag down.

Dragging the middle point down will create the curve you will base your bunting on.

Select a 1px black brush. Open the Paths panel and click the hollow circle to stroke the path you just created.
