Create a Transparent Screen with Some Cute Additions
So, you were inspired by the transparent screens posted earlier this week. Wanna make your own? Well, before you go snapping photos behind your screen, check out this twist to the digital trompe l’oeil.
Designer and illustrator Delphine (a.k.a. del4yo) whose tablet cover we posted about a month ago, wrote a great tutorial on her blog Non Dairy Diary. The step-by-step instructions not only guide you though how to make a transparent screen, but how to make one that includes a layer of adorable illustrations — creating a Who Framed Roger Rabbit effect of drawings living in the real world right in your home office.
One of the highlights of Delphine’s tutorial is her explanation of how to create shadows behind the layer of bird illustrations — key to creating a 3-D like desktop that makes you want to reach in and pet one of the birdies!
