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.
