This is a guide to how I mademy music magazine frontcover.This is my first step:It has to be an A4 piece ofpaper.
Second Step:I have chosen mybackground colour so it willmatch my colour schemeand don’t contrast with theother colous I will be using.
Third step:My image has to be onthe bottom layer so itdoesnt get in the wayof my text.I have also put a effecton my image, It’s a redouter glow which willset in with my theme.
Fourth step:I added two coverlines to it in mychosen font. I alsomade sure my coloursused fit in witheverything else.
Fifth Step:I added a strap line to it whichwill draw people into mymagazine by wanting to findout about the different topics.I also made the font black andput a red rectangle around it soit highlights it.
Final Step:I added my title to it andeverything came together, allthe colours go well I think andnothing is blocked (not eligible) I also put an effect on thetitle, it was an outer glow againbut this time its green and notso big as it is on the image.
This is my layer bar, here you can see what Ihave done to create my front cover and all thelayers I have made.This shows how many layers is needed tocreate to form my piece of work. It takes sometime in positioning the layer so some layersdon’t interfere with others.
