I am starting the new year creatively by working on a label for my sister who owns a restaurant. (Grandma Cookie's Hot Dog Express).She is adding a line of sweets to her menu that feature family favorites such as molasses cookies, hand-made chocolates, cookies, muffins, and more.
The label will feature a vintage photo of the three of us "cooking" when we were small. I scanned the photo, then used the software to give it an "embossed" look. I am going to use this as a background for the label, printing the wording overtop of it to create a "logo" that we can use on the boxes and bags. Right now, I am printing sample labels to show my sisters, and we will decide what works best. So far, the name "3 Sweet Sisters" is my favorite.- I hope they like it!
I think it is important to share our process with others, just as we gain from watching other artists work.
