Design Notes


Barun Patro shared the following image that formed the basis of the Calendar Wallpaper design. Thank you very much, Barun!


I recolored the three bright ribbons to the tricolor. I feathered around the central light source and deleted that part forming a gradual transparency at the centre. I placed this image on top of the first image.


I prepared on more layer with a feathered central light source. This time, I applied ‘Inverse Selection’ an deleted the selected parts. Now I got a transparent layer with only the central light. I stacked this on top of the other two layers.


When I merged all the three layers, I got the present, final image that shows an aurora and tricolor ribbons. Simple, isn’t it?


‘Quadranta’ font is used for ‘Vande Mataram.’ The calendar is created using ‘Constantia’ font.

That’s it! Awaiting your comments…
Happy Independence Day!
