Leah Freebie Digital Pack.

Please click for a larger view

I hope you enjoy this pack. It has 12 papers and a few extra items. I enjoyed playing with some of my flower and texture photos in Photoshop's blending modes, then added some watercolor brushwork. These came out a little bright, but I have a more subdued pastel pack and also some graphic style papers, suitable for minimalist layouts in the works for my next give aways. Unfortunately I won't be able to get them finished until the end of the month, summer is very busy right now.

Leah Papers. I would love a hint - Do you prefer the pastel or bright?

I want to celebrate the flower because they're celebrating The Chelsea Flower Show in London right now, and I would so love to be there. I also want to celebrate our new granddaughter whom we met for the first time a few days ago and she's as pretty as a perfect flower. Welcome to your new country and your new family Leah.
This is a peek at the papers I'm working on named Leah to celebrate the flower and this sweet little girl. I've many of the same design but different colors and I understand people not liking re-colored papers, but these have been re-colored through a process of blending and adding a variety of multicolored layers and textures, and not simply re-colored in Photoshop's Hue and Saturation mode. I wonder if this is realized? Anyway I'm trying to get a few more different papers to to with these. They'll be free as usual.

The Chelsea Flower Show is put on by the Royal Horticultural Society in Chelsea, London each May. This is possibly the most famous gardening event in the world and because it's so popular, tickets have to be bought in advance. The first couple of days is only open to RHS members.

Free Photography classes all weekend starting Friday 14th 1pm

I'm one of their junkies, but otherwise have nothing to do with Creative Live

(formerly Creative Tech) except I want to spread the word about their terrific classes.

This weekend there's going to be a rewatch of the first six weeks of The Fundamentals of Digital Photography Course, with John Greengo.

He's a part of the team with Art Wolfe's "Travels to the Edge" TV series and is a very intelligent and knowledgeable teacher who has a unique style of teaching with his own terrific graphics. These really help simplify the understanding of the many photography concepts.

It's free unless you want to download the classes to re-watch later. Me and my new camera will probably be there the whole weekend so I'd better get some meals made ahead of time!

Devon Cottage freebie

Please click image for a larger size

A bit of shabby chic that remind me of the worn, but clean, linens that covered the tables of the tea shops, where we would stop in the afternoons for our cream teas, in Devon, England. 

I hope you enjoy this pack that include papers, pattern and plain, a couple of masks, and a few extras. Scroll down to see examples of it in use under "Shabby Chic" Along with other freebie papers.
