Eye Candy on a Wonderful Wednesday

18 Oct

Have you ever had month after busy month of never-ending to-do lists and deadlines and demands-of-life to attend to? If you have, then you probably know exactly how I’m feeling (bedraggled and beat up, lol) and will hopefully forgive me for being woefully lacking in making an appearance here lately.

During times like this, I find that it’s always such a wonderful comfort to sit back and feast my eyes on beauty and awesomeness, so I decided that today’s post will be all about amazing Eye Candy done by some of my most favorite peeps in the entire world (and they’re the some of the best creative artists ever too!)

And because it’s a Wonderful Wednesday today, that also means that I’ve got two products on sale at my shop till midnight Pacific time today (so you’ve got about 14+ hours to grab these in case you don’t have them in your stash yet and you find yourself needing and wanting them. ;)).

Two more hours…

20 Sep

That’s right. Two more hours to take advantage of these Wonderful Wednesday deals! (Yep, am getting right straight to the point to make the most of your time >teehee< :lol: ).

Just a Buck

One-Buck Wednesday brings you this today for… just a buck! (I crack myself up).

{Click on the image above to grab this at my shop for half the price till midnight Pacific time today!}

square one - (noun) the situation in which you begin an endeavor and to which you return when all else fails.

My Square One collection contains mini-kits that you will turn to time and time again whenever you need to get your scrapping mojo going. Each set in the collection comes complete with everything you need to create quickly and differently (perfect so you can use and reuse the items, combining them with the rest of your goodies in your digi-stash).

Square 1 No. 1 – Dream Big is the first in this collection, and it’s particularly special because you get an overflowing serving of goodies: there are two 12×12 highly-textured, distressed papers with just a touch of grunge and 13 elements, including crumpled foil stars, stitches, doodled stars, glitter trails, and painted chipboard circle embellies, with and without shadows for your ease of use. Get creative with the tons of variations you can do with the elements! (Hang stars from the stitches, pile up the circle embellies, scatter glitter trails where you wish—the world of creativity is yours to explore!)

To give you an idea of how wonderful and versatile this mini-kit is, here are some awesome layouts by the JessicaSprague.com magical artists:

One-Buck Wednesday

If you love the look of textures on your photos, you’ll love playing with my Photo Play Texture Pack, which happens to be on sale for just a buck today (till midnight of Wednesday Pacific time)!

{Click on the image above to grab this texture pack for just a buck!}

Here’s a sample of how these textures can bring that oomph and bang to your photos:

You can combine different textures to get totally different looks each time…

Or you can use one particular texture and play with blending modes, which is what I did here:

Original (Unedited) Photo:

I used Photo Play Texture 6P on the photo and came up with this:

(I used a layer mask and with a low brush opacity, I erased a bit of the texture from the little girl so that the texture was retained but did not overpower the subject).

I used Photo Play Bonus Texture #2 and this is what I came up with:

Here’s the recipe I used above, in case you’re interested (though the textures work differently depending on your images… and that’s a wonderful thing, because it means that you can play and experiment with different textures, different blending modes, different opacities, and the possibilities are just mind-boggling!)

As always, you can click on the images to view them at larger sizes. :)

Wonderful (Half-Off) Wednesday

I also have this wonderful element pack at half the regular price today (again, till midnight Pacific time)… and these are perfect not just for taping photos or elements or tags, but also for adding realism and texture to your creations (you can even put text on them!). These are real tapes that I have painstakingly and lovingly extracted for you so that all their rough, torn edges and crumpled areas have been preserved. Yummy, right? :)

One-Buck Wednesday! ~ Day by Day

5 Oct

I love the everyday, ordinary day. There is so much treasure that lies hidden under the most common, routine things, if we only choose to see with eyes wide open with wonder and amazement: the early morning sun whispering its wake-up greeting from behind the drawn blinds. The sweet fresh-morning-dew breath of the young child softly snoozing (cherish it; when they grow up, that sweet breath disappears, haha). The perfect sweetness of the orange that, squeezed and emptied into a glass, sacrificed itself so you could drink its delicious essence (oh, to feel like an orange after a day of serving others is to know it was a day well spent!).

So much of what is special and precious in our lives lies tucked in moments that look suspiciously ordinary. And some of us choose to preserve these memories in photographs or layouts. Which brings me to one of my favorite products…

Day Brushes – Reloaded

The first version of this was created about the time I started selling my designs at JessicaSprague.com (there were just two of us selling our designs back then – Jes and I :lol: Then we grew and grew and now we’re privileged to have so many awesome designers in our team!). The brushes were popular back then (thank heavens!), but –and here is where the learning curve began– I realized that since I had put in the year as a background to the brushes, they weren’t really very useful once the year was over. :roll:

So I re-designed and re-created and enlarged the original pack, and this is what came out of the oven (and now you can use them year after year after year…) :

liv.edesigns Daybrushes - Reloaded ~ just $1 today!

Here’s a closer look:

You can “stamp” these directly on to your photos, or you can use them on layouts. If you’re a Photoshop or Photoshop-Elements user (or if you use a program that allows the use of .abr files), you’ll be glad to know that the .abr files allow you to stamp in whatever color and size you want. If you don’t use Photoshop or PSE, you can still totally use these because the whole pack comes with transparent .png files!

Oh, and did I mention that you get 4 complete sets in this pack? That’s right: you get a bunch of solid and dotted-line stamps and rub-ons in clean and grungy versions! They come with 8 built-in basic labels plus a blank one so that you can customize it with your own labels. How awesome is that? :)

More awesome-ness: Eye Candy!

I just love the wonderfully-creative masterful ladies on our JessicaSprague.com Creative Team! Here are some of their layouts using my Daybrushes-Reloaded:

I love how Jen P filled the empty spaces in the stamp with patterns and stickers! Even more awesome, she used the stamps themselves as frames for her daily photos. Can you spell awesome? *Happy sigh* :)

Layout by JessicaSprague.com Creative Team Member Jen P

I am in love with the way Miki used the stamps, both fully on her photos and then overlapping the photo and her background paper! Wheee!

Layout by JessicaSprague.com Creative Team Member Mikki

Jenn M turned her stamp into a tag – amazing! :)

Layout by JessicaSprague.com Creative Team Member Jenn M

Brenda used the dotted-line stamp which goes perfectly with her dotted-line border around her entire layout. Sweet!

Layout by JessicaSprague.com Creative Team Member Brenda

And Renee used my stamp for the bottom layer of her clustered elements. Marvelous!

Layout by JessicaSprague.com Creative Team Member Renee

Seriously. These ladies are just so awesome.

Wait! One more awesome thing!

liv.edesigns Daybrushes - Reloaded ~ just $1 today!

My Daybrushes-Reloaded pack is normally priced at $4.99 but today (until midnight Pacific time), you can grab it for just a buck! Woooohooo! Just click on the image on the left to grab it (you’ll go straight to the sale page), if you don’t have it in your stash yet.

Now isn’t it such a joy to grab stuff for a song? ;)

Speaking of songs… here’s one that matches today’s One-Buck Wednesday product from me. (Okay, so I guess I’m totally dating myself here, but I truly enjoyed this way back in the 70s… though I didn’t have the era’s famous big hair :lol:)

Happy One-Buck Wednesday, my friends! With huge hugs! (And may your every day be awesome beyond words!)
