I was just asked by a fellow designer who wants to sells printable party invitations through her etsy store and wants to know how to create an editable downloadable printable pdf file that works with invitations and other instant downloads .
I created this simple screencast for her maybe it is of use for someone else out there also looking for a similar solution.
I have used Adobe Acrobat X pro Writer

[private]Recently i worked upon creating a splash page for Vector pics website
I created this tutorial which will walk you through the making of this page , illustration was first sketched , i will admit that the final image changed considerably from the initial sketches but below you will find some step by step making of the splash page with little description and the details of the tools involved.
Starting with just the basic shapes squares and rectangles i followed up my initial sketches to lay down the structure of the house nothing fancy just squares and rectangles.
Selecting nodes started distorting the shapes and forms.
Two shapes united to make further shapes
Round up the corners of the stroke for a better formation
Some details added to the windows
Using my most handy tools vector brushes for strokes.
Added some basic patterns to shapes , here i created a copy of the shape broght it forward and filled it up with the basic graphics dots swatch.
Finished creating one window and copied and placed it on other locations as well.
The brick wall detail was creating using Drawing brush strokes of different widths.
Randomly placed grouped copies of the bricks.
Time to color , i planned out the colors i would like to use .
ILLUSTRATOR TIP: Keep small shapes filled with your pallet on your work area easier to pick and fill with eye dropper tool. if you are lazy like me in creating swatches everytime 😉
Further coloring and shadows creation , i simply created duplicates of the shapes and placed them in a lower layer , with a darker color and reduced the transparency.
Place Shadows against your imaginary source of light to give life to the object.
Further details added a knob to the door , copies of circular shape in different shapes.
Development of shadows and light continues
Since i plan to place this house against a light blue background i placed an oval shape behind just to get the whole feel of the direction color harmony is going to . ( Knowing background will be developed in photoshop)
We’re in photoshop now! copied and placed a little grass layer with copies of one symbol.
Added some cloud shapes . some text and extras like the little bird on the tree.
[private]In this tutorial we will be creating a horizon of Floating air balloons . (more…)
