Free Downloads! - Digital Paper Samples

Besides releasing a coloring book, I’ve also been busy recently stocking up my Etsy shop with some fun digital goods. It’s taken me awhile to get in the groove and figure out what exactly I want to offer all of you.

As an artist, I often find myself in limbo between the physical, hands-on art stuff—pen, pencil, paint, crafts—and the digital world of iPads, vectors, fonts, screens, and software. Each side has different aspects that appeal to me as it pertains to creating art. As a result, my work has become a hybrid of physical and digital media.

I’m sure there a lot of you out there who feel similarly. You love to use technology, but also still like the look and quality of art created by hand.

My Etsy products have evolved to fill that space. My goal is to create a line of artfully designed digital goods that embody that handmade quality that I love. For example, some of my latest listings have been inspired by felt crafts, embroidery, paint marbling, and natural paper textures.

I’d love to offer you all a FREE sampling of some of my digital products from Etsy. Please enjoy these fun papers and a piece of floral clip art I’ve made recently for some of my sets. Click the link below to download the high resolution files from Google Drive. Print them out or use them in your digital layouts, whether for card-making, scrapbooking, or other paper crafts. And I’d love for you to visit my Etsy shop HERE as well, of course!

Enjoy!

Christmas Embroidery Clip Art - FREE Download

If you follow me on social media, you may have noticed that I’ve been hard at work developing my new Etsy shop. My vision for the shop is to provide a mix of artfully crafted handmade and digital items in the form of original art, patterned papers, clip art, and small crafts. It’s still at the beginning stages, and I have A LOT of ideas that I’m excited about—it’s just a matter of getting them done! It will be one of my main goals for the coming year.

Right now, I’m focusing my efforts on building up a stock of digital goods for designers and scrapbookers. Besides providing some of my pattern designs as digital paper sets, I’m also having a lot of fun using my crafting experience to create faux-handmade clip art. You may have noticed the digital felt flowers I just listed. My latest product is a set of digital holiday embroidery elements. As my Christmas gift to you, I’m providing these as a FREE download.

Click on the image below to access the zip file, which contains the 7 embroidery elements as png files and a bonus striped green textured paper used in the example graphics. (In the Google Docs screen, click on the download arrow in the upper right corner. File size is approximately 32.4 MB.) I hope you enjoy these, and if you’d take a moment to browse my Etsy shop as well, I’d greatly appreciate it. And stay tuned for more to come!

Sincerely, Nicole
