CoffeeShop "Cherry Blossom" Digital Paper Pack and Photoshop Pattern!


I love this time of year! It isn't hot yet, everything is freshly green, and flowers are blooming everywhere.

Because I am in a Spring mood, I put together this gorgeous Cherry Blossom paper set to share with you today. It contains eight 12x12 high resolution custom digital papers and the Photoshop/PSE  pattern I created to make them

People usually just apply a pattern one time, but there is a little design trick you can use with this type of pattern. Run it a few times on top of your background at different sizes and you can fill the page with gorgeous blooms! I did this with a few of the papers included in this pack.

I used gorgeous cherry blossom designs from the "Cherry Blossoms" set at (affiliate link) The Graphics Fairy Premium Site.

CoffeeShop "16x20 Storyboard Set #42"!


You might have noticed that my blog here is now HTTPS secure. I am so happy about that! However, you might notice a few blips for a little as I work on getting everything updated. If you visit any of the pages of my blog and you notice anything odd, please leave a comment on any post and I will fix it. Thanks so much!!!

I am working on a new Lightroom preset and Photoshop action, but they aren't finalized yet. It always takes some time getting them ready to go and write the post with the tutorial on how to use them. But until they are up, I wanted to post a new set of professional photographer storyboards.

This set contains two 16x20 Photoshop/PSE storyboards, one with a logo/textbox. Try my free Group It storyboard loading action to create you own storyboards almost instantly. You can print these or post them on the web. You can also resize them larger, but be sure to do this before adding any of your images. 


A special thanks to Lisa Rubel Photography (website, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) for allowing me to use her stunning images in my example storyboard above.

CoffeeShop "Rothenburg" Fine Art Texture Set!


I can't believe it is Monday! Where did the weekend go? I was supposed to finish painting my master bath but it was so gorgeous outside I didn't get it finished. Unfortunately I used the excuse that it was too rainy last weekend to paint. I think Paul is on to me...

Moving on, I wanted to post a new set of  Fine Art Textures I named " Rothenburg" from one of my favorite German cities. This texture is rough and gritty and reminds me of all of the beautiful stonework around Rothenburg ob der Tauber.

This texture/overlay set can be used at Overlay, Soft Light, Screen, and/or Mulitply blending modes over any image. You can also use them as digital papers and overlays in cards, storyboards, or other designs. And don't forget to check out all of my other textures/overlays/digital papers! All of mine come with free commercial terms-of-use.




This is a digital paper I made in a tutorial I posted over at the (affiliate code) Graphics Fairy Premium Site. I am an instructor over there and I love Graphics Fairy!!! If you are a member over there you can go read my tutorial that was posted today and grab the high-resolution version of this kitchen paper. There are so many incredible design elements and tutorials over there you will be happily lost for hours. And everything there comes with incredibly generous terms-of-use. 

I wanted to show you how you can use my textures to make digital papers look distressed and vintage.


In this example I added the gray Rothenburg texture from this post, inverted it (click to select it and press Cmd or Control-I), and put it in Screen blending mode at 80%. You can do this on any piece of digital paper to create special effects.

Original images used in my post: (rose, man, vase).

CoffeeShop "16x20 Photographer Storyboard Set #41"!


I love using storyboards and I wanted to design a new set of 16x20 ones for you. This download has 4 storyboards which can be resized bigger (before adding images) or smaller and used for print or posted on the web. These would be great for baby/children storyboards.

They are layered psd files so you can quickly add and resize your images using clipping masks.



All of the images used in this post are from Pete Bellis (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7).
