Gang! It’s January and the time has come for another upgrade! (Nothing to do with January really … but … oh, well…. anyways … :)
So, if you purchased Valentines Photoshop brushes set you will receive a nice surprise gift in a form of new upgrade!
As most of you already know, every now and then I add new features and benefits to the existing PREMIUM sets in order to make them even more perfect :) (That’s barely possible, I know … :))
So, when someone buys my Photoshop brushes, they did not buy just high quality brushes with commercial use license. Oh, no! They also bought unlimited free upgrades to their Photoshop brushes!
Well, yes, it’s not mentioned along with other features and benefits of my PPREMIUM Photoshop brushes, but what would life be without surprises? Innit? (Yes, I picked up that “innit” thing from Ali-G. :))
So, I guess this makes my brushes a kind of worthwhile LONG TERM investment. Innit? (Again??)
So far I upgraded:
- Valentines Photoshop brushes 2nd Edition (in this post)
- Tattoo Photoshop brushes 2nd Edition
- Swirls Floral brushes 2nd Edition
Ladies and gentleman, I proudly present you the brand new edition of Valentines Photoshop brushes set
Valentine’s Photoshop brushes set – 2nd Edition
* 21 brush at 2000px
* 21 brush at 1000px
* 21 transparent PNG files
- Commercial license
- PC/Mac Compatible
- compatible with Photoshop 7.0, CS, CS2, CS3, CS4 and CS5
This Valentine’s Photoshop Brushes set was created about a year ago, just in time for a Valentine’s Day ! Now, after a year I decided to upgrade it for my existing and future customers. So, in addition to 21 Photoshop brushes in two sizes, this package now contains 21 PNG files. Of course, the price remains the same, $9.99.
OK, guys, that’s all for today, stay well, love and hug each other and above all:
Have fun creating!
If you purchased this set before, the download link for the upgraded version was sent to your email address. If you changed your email address or did not receive the download link for any other reason, just send me your order number and it will be emailed to you immediately.
I know, this blog is mostly about Photoshop brushes. Mostly and mainly. It is also about anything and everything that has anything to do with graphics and illustrations. (Nicley put, in’nit?)
Most of the visitors of this blog (around 3000 daily, 80% are new visits) came over here through Google looking for some free downloads or tutorials. Of course, with more than 80 free Photoshop brushes sets, a dozen of free vectors and illustrations I hope no one leaves this site disappointed.
But, sometimes, just sometimes a feel the need to share some of my thoughts with you guys. It’s not like I’m some kind of hermit living in a solitude with no-one to talk to. (Although there are times when I wouldn’t mind living like that :)) But today, I’d like to share some thoughts with you.
So, what Photohop brushes and free downloads have to do with our purpose on this planet, our existence in this time and space? (If time and space exist at all).
Well, believe it or not, I have my opinion about that and maybe you will agree.
First of all (and it took me a while to come to this conclusion), I believe that we are here to be happy. That is our main purpose.
My grandma believes that we are here to good onto others and this fits my theory perfectly.
And that brings us to the topic of this blog – graphics. How?
Say you know how to do scrap booking. And say you know someone who would be glad to receive scrap book or photo album from you. And, say, you want to make this person, or couple – happy. It’s easy. Just find or take a photo of them (or him or her). Frame it properly, add some decorations, print it out and – voila!
For this post I prepared a little photo album front page idea. It’s just a start, but, as an old Chinese proverb says: To start is to have half of the job done.
So, here is this little photo album front page idea, I hope it will help you get some other ideas and make yourself and someone else happy.
Ok. That’s it for today’s post.
Be happy, make others happy and have fun creating!
You just keep on surprising me with your creativity! And here is another great example of that!
Applying Photoshop brushes on a photo. Tammy did it again :) !
So, here is what happened. Recently, I got an email from Tammy (GPL Studios).
“I was taking my son’s High School Senior pictures & realized that he & his girlfriend Casie’s shadows looked pretty cool on the brick wall, so I made a unique image with one of your heart brushes & their shadows. Needless to say, they and all their friends LOVED it, and it’s set as her profile image right now on myspace. (In case you were wondering, I used a gaussian blur & reduced the opacity).”
Great work Tammy!!!
So, if your imagination is tickled with this image and you’d like to get romantic with your creations too, here are my recommendations of the day:
1. Hearts Photoshop Brushes Set (32) (click to see them) or
2. Photoshop Brushes: Valentine’s – Second Edition (21+21) (click to see them)
And if you are familiar with Adobe Illustrator or CorelDraw or Xara*, you can use Valentine’s Hearts Vector Set (35) .
So, as always, thank you gang for your great input. I will try to publish as much of your work as possible so keep them coming!
More about Xara:
Today, I’m not going to say much. Let this little image speak for itself.
Happy Valentine’s Day folks!!!

I don’t know, I figured I should probably enumerate some of the practical use examples, but then, there are like, zillions of possible applications for these brushes and this post would real be too long, it would bore you with the stuff you already know.
So, I opted to skip that part. Instead, I will send the following message: Love each other! Hug each other! Kiss each other! Make great stuff with these brushes and see how other people appreciate it.

I don’t know how many of you know, but 2nd of October is UN Non-violence day. And I fully support the idea. I think we all should help raising public awareness of that problem. Unfortunately, today, violence is all around us and we should all condemn it.
So, let’s unite our thoughts and take non-violent action to condemn violence. Non-violent action in Ghandi’s way (2nd of October was Mahatma Ghandi’s birthday) as he inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world.
One of the things I can do is to offer you free Photoshop brushes and vectors on the topic.
So, I prepared this Peace Photoshop Brushes set and Vector illustrations set – in one download file! 13 peace symbols: dove, peace sign, olive branches … and similar.
I hope you will like it.
Peace Photoshop Brushes and Vectors Set – in one package:
Peace and Love!
Many of you used the opportunity to get the Grunge Love Scrapbook Set for free by buying my latest Photoshop brush Floral Shapes (the offer is still on the table :). Therefore, many of you got a hold on scrapbook kit for the first time and I receive many questions on how to use that kit.
That is why I decided to prepare a tutorial for all of you who are scrapbooking beginners, I’m gonna make a scrapbook dedicated to my sister Nina who I love very much.
So, here is the step-by-step tutorial on usage of the scrapbooking kit Grunge Love!
1. Start Photoshop and open one of the background files provided in „Scrapbook Page Kit: Grunge Love”. In this tutorial I used “bgr4.jpg”.
2. Choose the photos you want to use in this scrapbook page. Since I am dedicated this scrapbook to my sister, I used her photo (these funny photos are taken with fish eye lens.)
3. Drag and drop this photo to a layer above the background and open one of the frames (“png” files – transparent). Drag and drop the frame (in this case “frame01.png” from Scrapbook Page Kit: Grunge Love) to the layer above the photo. Align it and scale so that it fits.
4. If you want to work with corners separately, select the one you want to move with “Rectangular Marquee Tool” and move it around, or cut out the photo to fit the frame. (Tip: using simple Rectangular Marquee Tool or Polygonal Lasso Tool surround the frame corner and, while holding Ctrl key, press arrow keys up and down. Now the corner is selected. :))
5. Add another photo and add another frame. Now, you can rotate the photo and the corners (all layers) together (except for the background, you don’t want to rotate background). So, select the layers with photos and corners by holding the “Ctrl” key (Press Ctrl, hold it down and click on layers one by one until all layers are selected). Now press Ctrl+T for Free Transform and rotate the selected layers for, say, 15 degrees. Hit Enter once you’re done.
6. Now you can use one or two (or more) heart symbols. I went for heart with wings. Rotate them for 15 degree too.
7. Open the “loveLetters.png” file (also from Scrapbook Page Kit: Grunge Love) and add letters at the layer above.
8. Add one symbol in the background (just above the background layer), for example you can choose “heartTransparent.png” (from the same Scrapbook Page Kit). Use layer blend modes and select “Multiply”…
9. That’s it!
As you can see it’s quite simple. Everything you need is included in the kit (except for the photo of my sister :))
Have fun creating!
This package is quite heavy – 44Mb. This is because all images are in highest resolution 12″x12″ at 300dpi for those of you who want to print it in a professional way. I’m saying this because the download might take long especially for those of you who don’t have high-speed broadband Internet connection.
But your love is a secret that’s been passed around.
There is a silence that comes to a house
Where no-one can sleep.
I guess it’s the price of love; I know it’s not cheap
I’ll tell you about this scrap book set, but before that let me share some other thought with you. It’s about this song. Before proceeding, please, check that U2 video at YouTube http://www.youtube.com/v/UmgYzASFZPU (That’s when Bono calls the White House from the stadium.)
Ultraviolet (Light my way) is the name of the song, it’s a love song (yes, once upon a time there were bands that actually made love songs), but if you listen to lyrics, very soon, you will realize how really really really COOL they are! Here is the link to Lyrics of Ultraviolet (Light My Way) on U2 Official Web Site –>
Anyway, Silvia prepared one really cool scrap booking set called “Grunge Love Set”(Hi-Res .jpg and .png format) so I thought I’d support this announcement with this, not just an ordinary song, this – Masterpiece of modern art! That’s what I’ve gotta say about it. Both, Silvia’s Set AND the Ultraviolet from U2. Same thing …
It’s never enough when it comes to Photoshop brushes – so, here is more of them!
Especially when it comes to such an inspiring event as it is on Valentine’s day. Loads and loads of Valentine’s related graphics is being produced daily. Loads of Valentine’s brushes is being applied on all kinds of media. From web, of course, to magazines, newspapers all the way to t-shirts, mugs, caps, etc… etc…
So, what do I do (apart from talking to my self)?
I do more brushes!
And what do I do with them?
I give them to you!
Because I’m on medication! :)
So, your mission of today: Click – Download – Create
’nuff said! :)
Have fun creating!

I love cats. In fact, I was a roommate with two of them. Therefore, out of love and respect for animals I fully support the idea behind this site: pet-abuse.com.
Unfortunately, I was a witness of animal cruelty because one of my roommate cats was a victim. Today, I sill find it very hard to talk about it although both of my cats died in their old age (over 16 years). In this post, I put a picture, which will say much more.
Thanks to: Cats are crazy
