Step 12 Now it’s time to add clouds and other decorations. Copy and Paste and place where desired, paying attention to the composition. Make it fun – experiment, play with shapes and let your creativity guide you.

Step 13 Happy with your design? If so, that’s as far as we’re going to go in Illustrator. Now we’ll import the file into Photoshop to add texture.
