TIPS: Text with Gradient [Adobe lllustrator]

The other day, I tried to put a text with gradient in my artwork, using Adobe Illustrator software. And this is what I did:

1. Click on the Type Tool [T] and type “GRADIENT” (in black color)
2. Activate the Gradient Panel and start picking my color, as follow:
Gradient Type: Linear
Color: from Black 100, to Yellow 100.

And this was what come out: nothing changed. Oops!

3. I did another try. Right click on the text and click “Create Outlines”. And here it was:

    This is better than the first one at the top, as it now showed the Gradient Color, but still not what I want.

4. Next step, I right-click on the outlined text again, and click “Ungroup”
Choose Menu Object > Compound Path > Make.

AND….. it finally showed the correct one! This was what I want:

If you find the similar problem on Text with Gradient.. lets give it a try. The tips is for YOU!

When Val’s day and Birthday Comes Together

Some people arrange their marriage on Valentine’s day. They said it was a blessed to combine those two memorable romantic day of the year. This year, I found out that there is a girl who celebrates her birthday on Valentine’s day. What a loving coincidence: she was born with love from her beloved parents, surrounded with loving family, and she is so lucky to have everybody in the world celebrating her birthday as a day of LOVE.

Don’t you think this is beautiful and loving?

I made her a multi functional greeting card-gift box, or whatever it should be called on that beautiful day. It has soft pinky Valentine’s theme and created for 2 purposes: wishing a great Birthday and a happy wonderful Valentine’s day.

Valentine is for Everybody!

I pleasantly treasured every Val’s day with some extra effort. Buying gifts for lover, family members, great friends, colleagues, customers, and anyone I could share the love with.

Some friends did ask me on why I should enjoy spending my never-been-enough time only to make these stuffs…. for… others. It did evoke my mind, yet I always have the definite answer: When you see others’ happiness is caused by you, you’ll never remember how long the time you have spent, how hard the time you have passed, how much money you have allocated, how much effort you have put into it.

Yes, when happiness shows, I understand that Valentine’s day is for EVERYBODY!

Val’s Gift, it’s sweet!

For some people, Valentine’s day is the most romantic day in every year, so do I. I actually believe that treating our loved ones best is not only on Val’s day.. but to love them each and every single day. Yet, as this is a very popular and fun-to-celebrate day, why we don’t put our extra effort on it?

This was one of my early-prepared valentine’s gifts:

Sweet Valentine’s Gift

It was actually a set of gift. It included the box, the ‘dedicated-to’ card, the puzzle-mode love card, hidden poems,exclusively-designed chocolate packaging, the day-and-night-baked dark and white chocolate, and even the hidden gift. Dark chocolate was supposed to be the highest quality chocolate and good for health in its own way, so it showed the high-class taste of food. White chocolate was to represent sincerity and purity of giving and sharing. All were carefully prepared with blossom heart.

After all, I couldn’t imagine how he would take all those chocolate on his own. Ha, ha…
