Greetings! I have been promising some links for you and now I am here to deliver! LOL These are sites I stumble upon or hear about that offer something good for scrappers and digital artists. As a Photoshop user, too, I pay attention to those resources that are offered. So, are you ready!
This first place is DigiTee Designs. Shiela is into scrapbooking, it looks like. She creates little goodies and gives them away, such as Layer Styles for PS, labels, strings and alphas. I spotted a cute kit, too! A couple of ’em!
Do you like ‘Layer Styles’? JC Sweetpea Designs offers a slew of really nice styles for Photoshop. They are free and for CU use, too.
Next, is ScrapKado Brushes. Though the title says ‘Brushes’, Sylvaine has Patterns, Styles and Templates. On this page, after the first post for Ballet Brushes, she gives links to all of her sites, and there are lots more that you may enjoy!
Now, about DeviantArt. I spend a lot of time over there since I also do digital art and painting. My favorite photo-manipulation is anything fantasy. Thus, I have found a few artists who provide stock for art use. I have compiled the links into one page at my old blog. I just haven’t moved it yet.
I have noted after each link what type of goodies each primarily offers to help you narrow down your search. Also, be sure to pay heed to each individual artist’s terms. Some are fairly detailed whereas others – not so much.
I saved the best for last. My friend, Jodiann. I know I wrote about Jodiann before, but, if you haven’t been to her site, lately, you are missing out! She is on a roll! Jodiann is a natural-born designer. She makes some of the nicest goodies. Coincidentally, one of her specialties is Layer Styles. But, she does elements and overlays and all kinds of neat things.
For those of you who design your own, she even offers a year-long CU Pass, allowing you to sell what you make with her goodies. It is the most reasonable rate I have ever seen! 5 Bucks! Yep! For a whole year! Even if you have no need for this, you really must read some of Jodiann’s posts. She is a HOOT! She’s an ol’ hippie chick, herself, so, we have a lot in common.
This isn’t all I have. It’s just all the time I have. LOL I have a tutorial that I will post soon that will, hopefully, help you to save time doing your scrapping/art/designs. Look for it! Meanwhile, I will see what needs to be done about my RSS Feed. I don’t know if it works or not. The benefit of a ‘feed’ is every time I post something, you get it in your e-mail. LOL I use them all the time for sites I want to keep up with. You can also have the feed go to a ‘reader’ of your choice. I use Google Reader. It would take me a year to view each of them, but… LOL I subscribe to a lot of places! I just skim over them and hit on the stuff that stands out to me. Seeing what all I have downloaded, it is probably a good thing that I can’t read all of them on a regular basis! I have 2 External Hard Drives full of resources! My brushes alone weigh in at over 50 gigabytes. LOL
So, as usual, until next time…
Thanx so much for the links above. I appreciate your generous heart! I stopped by all sites, picked up a couple things and left lots of love for them and for you! Thanx again! Have a terrific week ahead!
Thank you! It is good that you can find something useful! I learned PS and scrapbooking from the generous spirit of others in those communities. It is in that same spirit that I try to give back.
