Grunge Overlay Pack1 - CU Freebie

I have a CU (commercial use) freebie for you today. It's a pack of 5 12x12 desaturated grunge overlays created at 300 ppi. Use them with any graphics program that supports layers (i.e. Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, PSP). Just place them in a layer over your paper or element and adjust the blend mode and --- voila, instant grunge and interest.

The Spider's Parlor MiniKit - Free for a limited time

I created a mini-kit for the October color challenge at theStudio [link]. It's a fun little kit called the Spider's Parlor. I love the color palette that Diane chose and I was further inspired by the awesome CU spider being offered by Tracy of ambowife designs (a designer at theStudio). It made me think of the children's poem "The Spider and the Fly" and the line "Welcome to my parlor," said the spider to the fly. Luckily I was able to find an awesome photo of fly. Once that was extracted, I had both of the main characters to create the kit!

In my mind, the spider's parlor was a little old-fashioned with furnishings just a little past their prime. That's the look and feel that I was going for. You get 6 papers and 18 elements. And as a bonus, I added a pre-shadowed cluster. The elements are: a frame, a ribbon, a bow, 2 paint splatters, a brad, a button, a lit candle, a pewter plate, 2 flowers, a leaf, a journal block, an old shoe, an old blouse, a feathered hat and the two stars of the kit: the spider with it's web and the fly!

Here's the preview. Hope you enjoy this fun little kit.
