Thank You so much! (and some colour therapy printables)

Thank you Thank You THANK YOU for
your sweet words & lovely advice.
You are the best readers anyone could ever hope for.

Since I'm not the only one with Winter depression, I thought
I'd share a bit of colour with you all to perk us up. :-D

With any luck, I hope to have 16 colours of each pattern...
(and matching overlays for you to make your
own custom papers, if you want)
....done and uploaded in a week or two.

They are 350 DPI (and 12.5 inches square)
for printing quality.

If you want to use any of these right now,
you can download the original size on Flickr this way:

1) Click the image you like (to go to Flickr)
2) Right click on the image once you are there.
3) Click the photo to pull up a menu
4) Select "original" from the view all sizes menu
5) Finally, right click and hit save as.

Hope these fruity shades make you smile!


I did a print test (of the PNG) out of Photoshop & I was really happy with the way these
custom colours came out. If you want to test it out, a JPG print test sheet is here:

(not sure how JPG will print, but when I upload to, I'll include
PNGs so you have a choice.)

WOW, these are GORGEOUS! You must be feeling at least a bit better to have come up with these! I know I'm feeling better for having looked at them, absolutely love them and can start to invision some great cards and projects made with them! Perfect colors and patterns to chase away the winter grays!

Judy said...

These are wonderful! You are one of the most generous people to share all that you do and ask nothing in return. I'm not very good about leaving comments, but I have followed your blog for several years and always look forward to your posts. I have learned a lot from you. Whenever I am looking for a template or a tutorial, I check your blog first and chances are you have a link to what I need. I am sorry that you have been feeling down lately. I understand because I also have depression issues. I am glad you are feeling a bit better at least today. I have missed your blog posts, but I follow you on Pinterest and am glad that you are pinning some things there. I hope you are feeling much better soon. Hugs - Judy
