New brushes soon

July 30, 2008

I realise its been quiet here for a while. Its been a busy month of work and play, including a computer death/crash/meltdown which set me back quite a bit. New and gorgeous brush sets on the way. Meanwhile take a look at this video I recently worked on for the new book The Fame Formula by Mark Borkowski (its a very good read).

Free – Handmade paper pattern set

May 22, 2008

Photoshop pattern set. Includes different shades of handmade paper, and they tile seamlessly. The zip file also includes a tiling JPEG for those of you that don’t have photoshop. Ideal for using as a fill, and great when used in conjunction with my torn paper brush set. Personal use only please. For commercial use, read details below.

Try using this set as a pattern overlay in a layer style. Add a drop shadow, maybe a bevel, and save as a custom layer style. Great for digi-scrapping! See below for how to do it (click on image to enlarge)
