A Dash of Inspiration, A Cup of Creativity by Doreen

Halloween in June

Of all of you have been listening to the advice Corrie and I have offered over the years, then you are all working on Halloween Cards now … right?  Any artist new to our community blog, or for those who need a refresher, the greeting card designer must work three to six months in advance of any and every holiday.

Today I offer some great bits and pieces to add to your spooky toolbox which will nicely accompany those ghouls and goblins in your new Halloween designs. All are free for commercial use with attribution and free to download.

Statik: A Free Bold Style Font

    Thanks Doreen for the inspiration. What a treasure trove of resources!

    I was wondering if you would sometime have the time to share how you organize your graphic resources (fonts, brushes, vectors, etc.). There must be a better way than what I’m doing which is one big mess. I’ve started a master file of artists so I will be sure to have TOUs available and will not have to go searching for them when I use a graphic. But, whew! everything is in disarray.

    Hope you’re having a super day,

      Glad you will enjoy the goodies, Kati and I would be happy to talk about resource organization in a future post – always willing to take ‘requests for posts’ 🙂
