new Bright Patterned papers (chevron, moroccan tile, vine outline)

So... more printable papers.

You might be wondering "Why all the papers?"

They've sort of become an obsession, since for the time being, I'm a one armed bandit. (I did something crazy to my elbow & it's been a couple of week's of limited activity). So, this is something I can do with one-armed computing... cutting & pasting and so on. I tried to do some hand-stitching on a card the other day and tried shooting some photos. No go.

Man oh man, you don't miss it until you can't do it!

Anywho, here are a couple-few paper sets...

This long post has papers in only PNG format at 12.5" square & JPEG at standard size for now (all at 350dpi) that any of you who want to re-size or simply print at a percentage (or print to fit your media) can just go for it!

I will upload the overlays later (as well as
other versions and formats) but bit by bit
as I post cards made using those papers.

You can find the whole set for these Chevron or ZigZag papers
(in tightly packed patterns)
in PNG 12x12 on flickr here, if you like.

The JPEGs in standard size are in a set here.

Collage BRIGHT vine papers OUTLINE

These vine new vine outline papers are a little more subtle than the last ones and they use less ink (since the vine is coloured & not all of the surrounding negative space).

Turns out, they have a nice little bit of distressing that makes them look like real patterned paper when printed. I'm starting to wish I'd added that to all of the patterns, and think I'll end up sharing an overlay with the distressing that you can use on any paper, in case anyone else likes the distressed look.

The colours are an exact match for the other solid ones:

Hope the downloads work well & that
you can have some fun with these!

P.S. Sorry about the mishap with the not having to download to print (turns out I don't have a clue there!) *blush!* ♥ Thank You so much Jennifer for letting me know it wasn't working the way I thought. ♥

Really, I should know better than to try such complicated things with my limited computer skills... But I get so excited by imagined possibilities and get carried away before I know what's what. :-D

Another of my blog goals is to try to learn to keep it simple (Those of you who've known me a little while may believe that one when you see it, though!) hehehe


Marianne said...

Oh boy, you have been really busy. I guess we should be thankful for your mishap, but I do hope you'll be able to fully use both arms again real soon. Don't have time to download these, so I'll be back...

Cat said...

well, i'm SUPER sorry you're still laid up, but i'm very HAPPY about the new papers :)

i don't mind Flickr - i download a group of papers, then rename them with the name you've given them... that way, when i sort my files they're all together :)

ps-so, i must be an idiot. i can't find the overlays. what am i doing wrong?

Unknown said...

I love your papers! I use them for backgrounds on my phone, iPad, and blog too! =)

Dawn said...

sorry about your elbow woes! hope you're two-armed soon! lol

more great're awesome once again!

hugs kiddo!!!

Julie C. said...

I love the Moroccan tile papers and thank you for all of your effort! And don't worry about not being very tech savvy. I don't even know what an overlay is (though I have a vague idea)!

Pat (mspfd) said...

These are gorgeous papers! Thanks so much for sharing! Fee better!

Jackie said...

Your papers are just gorgeous! I will definitely be downloading them all. I hope your elbow is better soon, just rest it as much as you can.

Miriam Prantner said...

Oh no, what did you do to your elbow?! Glad that you are at least able to get digitally crafty, and I'm a big fan of the chevrons!

Victoria said...

Thanks Mel! These are beautiful.
Hope your elbow gets better soon.

CG said...

These are beautiful, thank you! I have a life-long issue with my wrists, and I'm so glad I can do computer design when they act up! And I can only ever do about 15 minutes of hand-stitching at a time :(
Again, thank you for these papers -- I thin making the Chevron would've made me sea-sick LOL!

Lillie said...

Mel Thank You Very Much for these wonderful papers. Hope you get better. :)

Linda M. said...

Thank you soooo much! Currently, I'm into the chevron style paper. I'm not sure what to do with it yet but I can imagine the possibilities. I love the other ones too! I'm sorry about your arm. Hopefully you'll get better soon!

Margie said...

Thanks for these Mel - love the Morrocan Tile ones. Sorry to hear about your elbow - hope it feels better soon. Take care.

Curt in Indy said...

Your digital papers are fabulous! The vintage vine is amazing! I hate to hear about your elbow!!! My gosh, I pop in out of the blue and you catch my elbow plight! Trust me, I totally sympathize with you and am still struggling with it daily. I think it's time I go back for a cortisone shot. . .hate that. . .Hope your elbow feels better soon! Hugs, Curt
