Free Mother's Day Designs and more

Mother's Day is May 8th, and I decided to make you some designs to use for cards, tags, or whatever you choose to use these for! The first design is this rose and butterfly design:

Just right-click on the images, and you should be able to download them with no problem. Open them up in your Photoshop program or whatever program you use to work with images, and you can add text or resize them if you need to. The next one is this whimsical word art for the front of a card, a gift tag, etc.:

Right-click on the image, save to your computer, and use for whatever you choose! You could even use these designs to make Mom a couple of great bookmarks, if she is a big reader! Save them to your photo editing program, resize bookmark size, and print out on cardstock or watercolor paper, then embellish with your own fibers, lace, etc., and make it your own!  Mom will love having her new bookmarks to remember you by every time she picks up her book to read!

I also wanted to share this design I did this week, a southwest style design, that you could use as a pattern for wearable art, or whatever else you can imagine to do with it. It would make a great design painted on a tote or even a purse:

 This one was done using my new Lukas opaque pan watercolors, and details were added with permanent ink.  The original size of this one is 9" x 12", and I re-sized it smaller to load on here, but it should still be plenty big enough when printed out to use as it is, or re-size for your own project in your image editing program.

Also, don't forget to check out The Altered Book Nook, and see what I have done on there lately! I have a lot more designs and graphics, and in May, I will have a Featured Artist of the Month for you! It is still a major work-in-progress so bookmark the site so you can check back often as I work on it and add to it.

  I want to share with you that I have found a wonderful new NING site that I have just joined called, "Just Be Yourself", (here's the blog address that the owner of the NING group writes as well - ) and it is going to be a great place to find friendship and support from other creatives! You may just want to check it out yourself and see if  it might be a good place for you as well...Just imagine  - a place where you can "Just be yourself"!!!

So, until next time-

Happy Creating!
