Freebies: Photo Layout Templates

Many thanks, Eleonore Bridge!

Hey guys, I'm in the process of streamlining my site and I decided to retire some items from my shop. But instead of archiving them where no one will get to see or use them, I'm gonna offer them here as freebies.

How are they useful? Well, if you're in a time pinch, for example, and you need a quick, nice layout, these guys may help. As usual, you'll need Photoshop CS or Photoshop Elements. And, like all my other templates, I use clipping masks to make them work. I made a screencast a long time ago that shows you how to use these guys and you can watch it over here. If you wanna make your own templates, check out this post. Also, if you need a quick Photoshop tutorial about clipping masks, check out Day No.7 in my free Photoshop eCourse.

Alright, my friends, that's all for now. I hope you're happy and well and if you're neither of those things at this moment, remember that everything is temporary --- the good and the bad. Okay, enough of that. Love you guys. Peace out.

By the way, I almost forgot --- Susannah Conway is hosting the August Break again this year. I just signed up and will post photos at Yo Kat.  I'm psyched to do all 31 days. It's gonna be fun. It's gonna be awesome. Sign up already!

It's fun to see Pugly Pixel graphics in the wild --- the wild, wild web, that is! These photos were taken by photographer, Katie Soze and she recently re-edited this bunch to include some of PP's graphical elements. Cool! Check Katie Soze's beautiful photography and clever tutorials over here.

Print Collection @ Society6

I had a lot of fun using these wool fabric brushes to create abstract patterns and shapes. I made more prints and added them to my first collection. So, if you want these prints on your walls, you can have them! They're for sale in my Society 6 shop. :) 

Someday soon, these designs will make their way into hand screen printing. That's gonna be a totally different animal from what I'm used to working with, but I bet it's gonna be fun!!

By the way, if you're new to Photoshop, I share all I know about brushes in this 30 minute screencast. I'll show you how to install them, and I'll also go through some exercises on how to use them in your projects. Fun stuff.

Fail Fast, Fail Often

... or try and try again! Wise words from my hero, Bruce Heavin... he said: fail fast, fail often. True that, Bruce! And in this spirit, I made these prints and they make me smile (semi-transparent textures + happy colors = big love!). I used the wool fabric brushes I mentioned last week to create these impressions.
