CoffeeShop "Quilt Board 3" 12x12 Photoshop/PSE Photo Board!


I saw this really pretty floral quilt online and loved the shapes used to make it, so that inspired this new quilt storyboard template. This storyboard is 12 inches by 12 inches and a layered PSD file with clipping masks to be used in Photoshop/PSE. 

Feel free to make the template bigger for print (do this before adding images) or smaller to post on social media.

Check out my other two quilt-inspired storyboards (Quilt 1, Quilt 2).

A special thanks to Jill Wellington (Etsy ShopFacebookBlogYouTube VideosPixabay) for allowing me to use her stunning image in my example storyboard!

CoffeeShop "Gauguin" Fine Art Texture Set!


Happy Friday! Sorry I have been gone all week, it is a crazy time getting everything ready for our new school year. Homeschooling teenagers is so different than homeschooling small kids. Teenagers are much more independent, but I still need to put together their curriculum for the year. It is going to be a fun year, we have lots of really interesting classes we are going to do together. My personal favorites are going to be government and American literature. 


Today I have a gorgeous set of fine art textures I created out of Paul Gauguin paintings. I had three textures I made months ago, but I ended up throwing away two of them and added three new ones I created today. These papers can be used alone as papers or layered over images/graphic designs. And they come with free commercial terms-of-use.

Feel free to desaturate or change their colors. In the butterfly images above I used the red painterly texture desaturated and I love how it turned out.

CoffeeShop "1910 Made in USA Fabric" Digital Paper Pack!


So how has it been going for you this week? The boys will be in an advanced Cyber Air Patrol-hosted Cyber Security camp all week learning how to ethically hack among other things.Both boys are enjoying the camp, so who knows, I might have a future ethical hacker in my family! 

While they are doing that I am getting some work done on the computer and getting some end-of-summer errands finished. I am finalizing our homeschool curriculum (we do some school over the summer too) and I am really excited for all of the new things on our plates. I can't believe Luke is a senior this year. He has a full schedule, lots of math/science/computer science. The boys and I have even started taking a Western Philosophy course which has been really interesting. And they are enjoying PE which is playing pickle ball. We love that sport so much!

OK, I have to finish up this post. I have Gooney the cockatiel trying to eat my mouse pad, a very dusty first floor with wilted plants, and my dryer is beeping at me. I finished drying the clothes 3 days ago, promptly forgot about them, and had to throw in a wet towel this morning to de-wrinkle them. The boys washed a load yesterday that is sitting in the washing machine which I had to rinse a few minutes ago to make sure they weren't musty. I need to get my act together.

Today I wanted to share a paper pack of fabric samples from 1910 made in the USA. These are gorgeous textured velvets. I also included a Photoshop/PSE pattern so you can use them on your own designs. They come with free commercial terms-of-use.

CoffeeShop "Golden Hour Beach" Photoshop/PSE Action!



We went to Galveston Beach this weekend and I haven't even had time to download my photos to my computer. But I was really inspired by the beautiful sunset we saw Sunday evening, so I wrote a new Photoshop/PSE action inspired by it.




This action applies gorgeous golden light and an optional custom sun ray. It is fully adjustable and can be used on many different types of images.



I included a full tutorial below. Grab the free action toward the bottom of this post.

CoffeeShop "Golden Hour Beach" Photoshop/PSE Action Tutorial:




Start the action and it will prompt you to add a sun ray. It is preset to Diamond, but you can use Reflective too if you want the entire sky bright. 

Adjust the Angle and Scale to taste and click and drag to reposition it if needed.


Then the action will prompt you to blur the sunbeam. Adjust this setting to taste.


This is the image after the action is finished, no adjustments.


I turned on Golden Hour Tint 2 (this adds beautiful light and color to clouds) and set it to 60% Opacity.

Adjust all of the other layers to taste (adjust opacities, paint on layer masks). You can resize/reposition the Sun Ray layers by selecting both of them at the same time and making the adjustments. 

I hope you love this action as much as I do!

CoffeeShop "Wilfred" Fine Art Texture/Overlay Set!


It has been such a busy summer over here at the CoffeeShop house. Kids have been busy at different camps and when they are home we are together enjoying our summer. 

Luke is going to be a senior in high school this year, so this summer I am doing my best to be in the moment as much as I can. It is so difficult to slow down my busy brain. I love spending time with him, but my baby bird is starting to fly farther from our nest each day. I know my main job is to prepare both my sons to be able to leave our family home and strike out on their own. But sometimes when I think about my future quiet home without the boy noise and mess and fights and laughter and energy and love it makes me a little sad. 

I don't think I really understood what "bittersweet" meant until I had children. 

Enough wallowing in my self-awareness of time flying by too quickly. How is your summer going? I hope you are having a wonderful time with your friends and family.

Today I wanted to share a really nice set of vintage textures that look gorgeous on their own as papers or layered over images. I hope to post more next week and catch you up on what has been going on this summer. And of course to post more amazing freebies!

CoffeeShop "Daguerreotypes #2" Fine Art Texture/Overlay Set!


I woke up this morning and for the first time in almost two weeks I feel good. That little virus was nasty, but we all beat it!!! 

I absolutely love daguerreotype images. Real ones are rare and hard to find, but thankfully for public domain images I can find gorgeous images of ones and edit them so that they can be applied any image.

These are all original daguerreotypes, but I have edited them all to make them sharper. cleaner, and removed any residual images left on them. These can be used alone as digital papers or layered on your images in different blending modes (I usually use Soft Light or Overlays). 

Create your own custom wall art, fine art prints, or greeting cards! The sky is the limit with these beautiful textures.

I hope you have as much fun using these as I do!

CoffeeShop "Latour" Fine Art Texture/Overlay Set!


Sorry I haven't posted this week, but I have been recovering from a stupid bug the boys brought  back from their Civil Air Patrol Cadet Encampment. They spent ten deluxe days in Paris, Texas in 100's degree weather with hundreds of kid. And instead of a t-shirt all they brought back for me was a virus that they pretty much shrugged off but made me into a lazy sick lug for a week. 

Thankfully I was still able to enjoy Independence Day, but not with anyone outside of our immediate family. We had lots of sparklers, tiny tanks, and small fountains for our Fireworks Extravaganza. As our county is in drought conditions we didn't get anything that we couldn't contain in the middle of the driveway. But it was still a blast and enjoyed by all.  Hope you had a great weekend too!

Today I wanted to share two beautiful textures in this Latour Set. They can be used to edit in so many ways, but I love using them on images to create my own "old world" paintings.

CoffeeShop "Happy Fourth!" Digital Paper Pack!


I wanted to wish you a Happy 4th of July!!! 

How is June already gone by? I was hoping for a rainy week since we are in drought here in Texas, but it all missed our part of town other than a quick shower. We love to shoot off fireworks in our yard (our annual 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular put on by my boys) but it looks like we will be waving around sparklers, fighting flaming paper tanks, and setting off small firework fountains on the pavement this year.

I know this is late, but I put together a red, white, and blue paper pack you can play around with this weekend. They are all 12 inches by 12 inches, and use them anyway you wish. I have so much fun creating these patterns and I hope you can use them!

Have a wonderful long weekend with your loved ones!!!
