You can create several arrows and arrowheads with the use of Adobe Illustrator. The Illustrator is a vast graphical software which you can explore to do your customized arrows.The methods below can give you choices of arrows you may want to include in your art:

Using Shapes and Pathfinder tool
Using the Stroke Panel
Using Brushes
Using Symbols

Using Shapes and Pathfinder tool:

The Pathfinder tool could be a big help on creating your arrows with the use of shapes. Below is an example using two basic shapes.

1. Create a Rectangle (M) and a triangle. A triangle can be created using the star tool or the polygon tool.




Click on the polygon tool or star tool,  Click on the artboard once then a dialog box will appear. Enter 3 in the sides or points textbox.



2. Make the two shapes slightly overlap each other.


3.  Press Shift and click on the two shapes then go to the Pathfinder Panel (Go to Window>Pathfinder or Ctrl+Shift+F9). Click onthe Unite button.

4. Now the two shapes have combined.  You can use this technique on any shape you wish to create.

Using the Stroke Panel :

In this part we will add arrowheads and tail to a single line.

1. Create a single curved or straight line using the pen tool(P) or the Line Segment tool(\).
2. Select the line and open the Stroke Panel. Hover to Window and choose Stroke (Ctrl+F10).
3. Go to the "Arrowhead" section and select the arrowhead and tails you desire.


Using Brushes:

1. Hover to Window and choose Brushes (F5) .
2. Click the fly-out menu, select Open brush library then Arrows.

3. Select which of the three arrow libraries(Pattern Arrows, Arrows_Standard or Arrows_Special) you desire. These are the arrow libraries available in Cs6 Illustrator.
4. By using the Paintbrush tool (B), you can paint your own arrow from the arrow libraries. Go ahead and try the different ways available.

Using Symbols:

1. To use the Illustrator's preset symbols, Go to Window and select Symbols to open the Symbols panel (Shift+Control+F11).
2. Open the Symbols panel's fly-out menu, hover to "Open Symbol Library" and click on the "Arrows" Library.
3. Then drag and drop the arrow you selected into the artboard.











Now I'm ready to showcase my own visual arts.. I've drawn these the previous years.and I'm bursting with excitement on this.
In the first drawing, I have drawn the fairytale princesses. Fairy tale enthusiasts may have known them so well. I love fairytales when I was a child. I love the inspirational and moral lessons brought by the stories.

I've drawn them fist using my pencil and traced them when my ball pen..Then colored them with paint.

This 2nd drawing is based from the "Muses of Zeus," the one I saw on a newspaper. I made my own version.
This last drawing derives from my own idea. I've used the concept of the four elements: Earth, Wimd, Fire and Water.

JELLY ROLL RECIPE

Posted by Jhaycee | 4:47 AM


Being attracted to this cute rolled sponge cake, I made one for our family's dessert. By the way, the filling on the picture isn't visible cause I used a light colored pineapple jam. Hehe..

This is a recipe from TESDA.

For the FLOUR MIXTURE:
1 c. + 2 T. Cake flour
1/4 c. water
1/2 c. white sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
4 egg yoks

For the MERINGUE:
4 egg whites
1/4 c. Sugar(white sugar)
1 tsp. Cream of tartar

Flour mixture:
1. Sift flour and baking powder for three times.
2. Make a well in the center of the mixture. Add sequentially egg yolks, the water and lastly the sugar. Mix with a wooden spoon for 150 strokes or until it gains a smooth texture.

Create the Meringue:
3. Combine egg white and cream of tartar in a non-greased large bowl. Beat until foamy. While beating, gradually add sugar until stiff but not dry peaks are obtained.

Combine the Flour mixture with the Meringue:
4. Pour the flour mixture
into streams over the meringue's surface. Cut and fold gently while turning the bowl around to blend well.
5. Line a jelly roll pan/baking sheet w/ wax paper and pour the mixture into it. Bake for 45-60 minutes in a preheated 350 F oven until toothpick inserted at the center has few crumbs or comes out clean.
6. Sprinkle a clean dish towel with sugar. Turn out the baked cake on the towel and take off the wax paper.
7. Spread the cake with enough of your favorite jam. Roll up gently using the towel.

In case, no jam is available, you can use this filling recipe:
3/4 c. Evaporated milk
3/4 c. Sugar
1 bar butter

Procedure:
Soften the butter and gradually pour in the sugar while mixing. Slowly add the milk until the sugar is mixed properly with the butter.

If you dont want to use a dish towel, you can dust the wax paper in step 5 with sugar
before pouring in the cake mixture. Bake. Without turning the cake over, spread it with your jam and roll.

Yey! that's all. Seems like I'm gradually improving my baking skills. However, I am becoming forgetful that I haven't placed the cream of tartar on the egg whites at the right time. Well this is my downside on baking. Hehe.. I must improve my memory.
