Modern Calligraphy Social Media Photoshop Brushes

hand lettered social media photoshop brushes

I mentioned that I have been inspired lately by an artist to break out my nibs and I wanted to share some of the fruits of my labor with you. The lettering isn’t anything like hers (although I wish my hand could do such wondrous, effortless movements), her lettering got me inspired to break out the ink and paper, something that I haven’t done in a little bit. I created this little hand-lettered Photoshop brush set to use on your blog or site (for personal use only please and thank you), the set includes the words: Tweet, Pin it, Intsa, Contact and Email.  I made them brushes so you can easily adjust the size and stamp them in any color your heart desires. I hope you enjoy them and let us know if you have any questions! You can download here.

P.S. Of course I cleaned up the lettering and created the Photoshop brushes using none other than our Vitamin L25 | Paper to Pixel Photoshop set. Yup, there’s even an action that will turn your lettering into a brush in one click!  It’s how I got the ‘tweet’ on my post image!

This has been such a roller coaster week for me, I went from having many private pity parties, to utter elation, to feelings of uh-oh how are we going to conquer the next task we have in front of us? Lot’s of self doubt mixed in with a lot of ‘we got this’ and back again. Michelle thinks that lack of sleep would make anyone feel off, rational me says, ‘by Jove, that’s it!’   Irrational me, well, you don’t want to hear from irrational me, just reference the ol’ pity party above. So, yes, it’s been quite the spectrum of emotions this week. I am anxious to delve deeper with you and share our experience with launching a product, marketing on-line authentically and what has worked and what hasn’t. I came to blogging as a way to share my distress with an evil boss (interestingly enough we are actually on very good terms now), but I know the struggle of wanting to do something you love for a living. I believe it’s absolutely possible but it may not look like you originally envisioned, the road to that dream may be a bit bumpy, have an abundance of detours and perhaps you may even get derailed. I have this bit of wisdom for you, something I have been re-reading again and again, from the indefatigable Thomas A. Edison:

I have not failed. I have just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.

I am completely and utterly grateful for the support of our new company and its launches, it has blown me away. The best part of this adventure is actually accomplishing what we set out to do, we wanted to make something that helped people, helped them make more money doing what they love and to see that it’s working? Freakin’ fabulous! So why the pity parties?  I think it’s easy to reflect on what hasn’t worked in the past and feel like you have wasted time/failed, but maybe I should just focus on what Mr. Edison said….

Michelle photographed this delicious treat we obviously can’t share with you, but we can share the flourishes I made using our brand, spanking new Vitamin L25 | Paper to Pixel Photoshop actions, booya! Go ahead download them here and use them however your heart desires!

PRETTY IN PINK | BIRD PRINT DOWNLOAD

What a wonderful and whirlwind week it has been!  We are so happy with our launch of Shopkeeper’s Helper, our photoshop actions that  make product photo editing a breeze. Just when we were about to kick up our heels on the desk, and throw our hands behind our head in the classic relaxation pose we got a mention from Yahoo on Calligraphy making a comeback, really? How about that? We had a lot of  new visitors here and thought we should ramp up our efforts to launch the Lettering Love (working title of course) Photoshop actions set. We are hoping this will help a ton of those lettering artists out there (new and seasoned) to help clean up their lettering and get it ready for use on the web. We are thinking you might just love it.

Today in appreciation for our wonderful week we are making our little birdy print available for download. Michelle sourced it and gave it a little birdy makeover so we could shoot the very challenging white on white image for our pdf and video. You can download it here. Speaking of downloads, by joining our Foto Rx mailing list you will receive a download of a free mini set of Social media template actions, that’s right free and of course you can unsubscribe at any time. Enjoy friends!

P.S. Thank you again to Coco & Mingo for showing off her Foto Rx results!

NATURAL HISTORY BOOKPLATE + PRINT DOWNLOAD

BOOKPLATE DOWNLOAD

 As soon as I got back on my feet this weekend I started a cleaning frenzy of epic proportions.  My studio which I usually straighten up before I leave each night was a mess of papers, pens and other ephemera from the night I came down with influenza (yes, I like to call it that, it sounds as scary as it was). I needed to get organized and that I did. As I was cleaning out some boxes I found a stack of antique natural history plates that I have been meaning to scan for you for the longest time.  I didn’t scan them all but a nice amount (I will finish the second half soon, pinky promise), all super hi-res to use in your personal projects. For those wondering what you might do with such things, really the limit is only your imagination but since I love to read I made a set into bookplates for you to print, it’s 8 designs from botanicals to butterflies.  I have also updated all the links on the download page so you shouldn’t have any trouble downloading your heart out.  Have fun!
