The Happy Clouds, Free Photoshop Bruhses set

The Happy Clouds, Free Photoshop Bruhses set

Well …

As always, for those of you who are not interested in reading my yada-yadas, the download link to free Photoshop brushes is at the bottom of this post.

And for those of you who’d like to stick around. Well, thank you :)

So, what is this blog post all about. It is about Duran Duran, Magritte, dreams memories and of course, free Photoshop brushes. Now, let’s start with Duran Duran.

No, I am not much of a Duran Duran fan but this song just constantly plays in my head. And why? Well, because of the following lyrics:

Would someone please explain
The reason for this strange behavior?

And why is this?

Well, I barely made few posts for this whole year and all of a sudden I end up making one brush set per day. What is happening to me? So, that’s why these lyrics :) Can someone please explain the reason for this strange behaviour?

Middle age crisis? Age crisis? Crisis? Sudden hit of creativity? Did Muses decide to torture me because I did not try to do much for so long? Wel, whatever it is, I like it. So far.

:)

So, how did it come to todays brushes, which are, you already guessed, called The Happy Clouds? (Hey! This sounds like a name for a band. Maybe there is a band with that name? I’ll have to talk to Google about this.)

Well, last night I just dreamt these clouds. Believe it or not. They just popped up, out of nowhere (which is pretty common occasion when we dream, things tend to just pop-up, well, out of nowhere). So, they came over and just hanged around. Kinda liked them. Can’t say, or explain, how did I know they were happy, but in dreams, I guess, anything is possible. And people as we are, we tend to be happy when someone else, happy is around (or at least that is the way it should be), so they made me happy too and we were like – one happy family, consisting of clouds and me. And this family is about to get bigger! How? Well, that’s where you come in! If the free download of my latest Photoshop brushes will make you happy, then well, you see, the family of happy just got bigger :)

Hey, which reminds me! Did you know who else liked clouds? Liked to paint them? Magritte! René Magritte! Belgian surrealists, painter and a great artist. Love him!

Here is one of his paintings:

René Magritte - Beautiful world

René Magritte – Beautiful world

I was in Bruxelles a few years ago. Let me check if I still have some photos.

[searching .... searching .... ]

Ta-daaaa!

Magritte Exhibition – Bxl, good old iPhone 3 / Hipstamatic

I know, you’d say “Clouds they bring rain.”

Well, first of all, don’t we ll need rain? Sure we do. However, my clouds are not bringing rain, in my dream they were bringing happiness! So, when I woke up I just knew that I need to share this with you guys. Not just because happiness is always bigger when it’s shared, but also because I had this strong graphic images in my head and I just had to take them out in this world.

So, my dear reader, visitor and unknown friend, I hope you will like what I’m just about to present here. I hope you will like the

Happy Clouds, Photoshop Brushes set!

Of course, as always, there is a free version which I hope all you will like and which is available for immediate download down here, but the members of my Green Bulb Platinum Gang, as always, get special treatment. They get full pack with theree different sizes of each brush to cover the whole variety of different applications from web to print (we all know how it is not good to strech or compact brushes more than 20% or so).

So, free pack includes 7 brushes and separated objects for easier coloring, that makes total of 23 brushes. Sizes vary between 163 and 360 pixels.

And a PREMIUM version for GBG Platinum members includes three sizes (up to 2041 pix) AND 7 EPS files (vector files) of happy clouds so you really don’t have any limits or constraings when it comes on how or where to use them.

Happy Clouds, Free Photoshop Bruhses set

As always, here is a little preview of the brushes:

Holy Macaroni!

(Urban dicitionary: Homer Simpson’s Shocked and confused expression. When homer travels into the 3rd Dimension and doesnt know what to say.)

And since I am left speechless in this particular moment, I had no other choice but to reach out for the Homer Simpsons words of wisdom.

And why exactly these words? Because of the several reasons:

  1. This is my first free Photoshop brush after, I don’t know, gazillion years or so
  2. These brushes really are kind of 3D-space/universe style shapes
  3. I, too, don’t know what to say

But, it is true, new Photoshop brushes set is here. And you don’t have to register to greenbulbgang.com to get it. Although I did add them to the crowd of free brushes sitting there already.

So, a bit about those brushes:

  1. Size: huge, as always, 2222px – 2500px, so we can call them high-resolution (I know you did not expect anything less of me ;-)
  2. License: Free commercial license (meaning, as long as you don’t re-distribute them or claim as yours, you’re fine. Feel free to use them in your commercial and non-commercial projects)
  3. Compatibility: As always, these too are compatible with all versions of Photoshop since Photoshop 7 that came out in 2002. Hahaha! Talking about ancient history. But, believe it or not, some still use this version and I tell you  it is capable of lot!
  4. Installation: Just put them in your brushes folder, for Photoshop CS6 (64bit) it is C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS6 (64 Bit)\Presets\Brushe
    1. Once they are copied there, in your Photoshop brushes list they will show like this:bsilvia Photoshop brushes Swirled Space

(does this image look like a bit of bragging? show off? …. probably, but these far from all Photoshop brushes I did ;-) just check 800+ Photoshop brushe MEGA Set I and II)

Space Swirls, Free PS Brushes set

Photoshop brushes, Swirled Space

You know, I was looking at Google Trends for Photoshop brushes the other day. And the interest for these has been steadily declining over the time for the last few years. So, by doing this I feel a bit like the manufacturer of analog photo cameras. Who wants them? I guess it’s just nostalgic geeks like me. Us.

Well, anyways, brushes are here for you to enjoy them, make stuff, create … feel free to enroll to GreenBulbGang.Com for hundreds of more commercial use free Photoshop brushes. I know, I was supposed to send out a newsletter to GBG members every month and it’s been more than a couple of months since I did that. Or was it a year? Anyways, for the time being there will be no newsletter simply because I am not producing as much new stuff as I used to. If I find some artists-friends who would be willing with that I would be more than happy to re-start the newsletter but until then we’ll just leave it as it is.

Love you all my dear readers, I hope I will come out with new PS brushes or something soon. Until then, stay safe and keep creating!

Hey! Hey! Hey!

Dear friends, visitors, graphic designers, scrapbook lovers, new Photoshop brushes set is in town :)

I feel, these days, like and old rock-star (in platform shoes as Bono used to sing) coming back to the stage. Or, even better, I feel like a Terminator II. Why II? Because II is better then one!

And this set, I am really proud of it. I am proud of all my sets, but this is my newest, youngest, cutest baby! Now, for those of you who have been following this blog since I started it back in 2007. , well, first of all, thank you for sticking around. It’s been a while since I made a brush set and I am certainly not making as much as I used to. I used to make one a week!

Now, what happened since? First of all, that was this recession thing. Sales went down, but most of all, I went down. I don’t know. Depression caused by all this bad news on the TV or what not. And the removal. I guess that made an impact too. All this caused my creativity levels to go down for a while. In addition, meanwhile, Internet became full of free Photoshop brushes, some sites are offering, like, packages of gazillions of Photoshop brushes for a penny or two.

I guess all that brought me down a bit. But just for a short while. And this package proves it :)

Vintage Frames Photoshop Brushes

One more note. Despite the situation I never wanted to put the prices of my brushes down. And here is why:
First of all, it would not be fair towards all of you who purchased them at their original price.

Secondly, if I was selling them for, like, close to nothing, everybody would have them. And I don’t want that. I guess this philosophy is probably hurting my profitability and all, but what to heck. I will not compete to those who buy-off tons of brushes or vectors from God knows where and then re-sell them over and over again for close to nothing.

This way, thousands of designers end up with the same brushes.

Well, I am not having that. I guess I like this sort of “exclusivity” that my buyers have and I hope you appreciate it too. Wel, obviously, this  not all about money. I enjoy the feeling when one of my sets is being purchased, of course, but this is definitely not all about money. It is about getting it out. No, not the money ;) Getting the creation out. (We are all getting the money out everyday anyway, aren’t we ;))

I was saying, I can’t hold this inside forever, you know. Some are getting it out with words, writing books, poems, others are painting, I don’t know, photographing, expressing themselves in all kinds of different ways. For me, I am getting it out by making graphical shapes which I turn into Photoshop brushes or vectors. Later on I use them for my own designs, but I also offer them to other designers, scrapbook hobbyists or professionals, even videographers, package designers, textile designers, professionals and enthusiast from different areas of visual arts to use them and apply them in their own work.

OK. Wow! What an intro! I sure can write. If you are still reading – respect, you deserve a free Lite version of the Photoshop brushes I am about to announce.

And now, drumroll …. TA-TAAAAA! TA-TARATATAAAAA!!!!

Ladies and gentleman, dear friends and colleagues, visitors! Let me proudly present a brand new Photshop brushes set by bsilvia (that would be me :)) called

Against All Odds: March Edition of The Cats Magazine Is Out!

Sigh!

Now, again, I learned about the importance of enjoying what you do! You have no idea, I surely did not have any, on what kind of work stands behind an magazine issue! If I was not a passionate cat lover and if I was not truly enjoying this whole project of mine, I’d drop it right now.

And again, I remember good old Confucius, when he said:

“Find what you enjoy doing and you won’t have to work again.”

Now, dear Confucius, this is not entirely true :) but it’s not far from it either.

Technicalities

Anyways, I will not bother you with details on The Cats Magazine project, but, if any of you is looking into possibility to start their own magazine or team up with someone to do so, I will just say that finally I found a good publisher which I can recommend.  They are MagETC, they provide excellent support, I make the magazine in Adobe InDesign and Adobe DPS. After months of searching this turned out to work best for me.

And, now finally I can also talk about using Photoshop brushes. Of course I was using my brushes to decorate The Cats Magazine. OK. Let’s make one thing clear: Adobe InDesign does not support Photoshop brushes in their native format. However, nothing can stop you from converting Photoshop brushes to .PNG and using the .PNG in InDesign :)

So, here is one more reason why Photoshop brushes are cool!

Here is one example of using the shape extracted from Photoshop brush in magazine design:

If you are, by any chance, a cat lover, here is what’s offered in the latest edition of The Cats Magazine. If you have iPad, iPhone or Kindle, give it a try :) I’m sure you will enjoy it.

If you are, by any chance, a business owner who would consider advertising in The Cats Magazine, by all means, send me an email to silvia (at) bsilvia (dotty:) com or contact me via LinkedIn.

OK. I think this is it for now.

Love you all folks,

Gang!

Here is some good news for GBG Platinum members!

Now, just before we go on to the nice addition for GBG Platinum members, here is a little reminder on what do GBG Platinum members get? (Apart from 24 PREMIUM Photoshop brushes from GBG Shop which is $239,76 value)

Well, apart from that and apart from all brushes and downloads which are available to free GBG membership and all brushes and downloads which are available to GBG Gold members, there is a special GBG Platinum members download area and here is what’s inside ->

As most of you already know, GBG Platinum members have the privilege of downloading and using (for commercial purposes as well) PREMIUM Photoshop brushes which are not available for sale anywhere else . Now, what does this mean? This means that not many people can have those and this will add to the uniqueness of your design,  scrap-book, photo-book or any other project you have in mind.

Ladies and gentleman, let me present you

Water Photoshop Brushes Set

Full name: Water Splashes and Water Bubbles Photoshop Brushes Set

Set includes:

  • 15 High-definition Photoshop brushes for your Commercial and Non-commercial projects
  • Compatible with all Photoshop versions from Photoshop 7.0 to the latest Photoshop CS6
  • Compatible with PC and Mac/Apple
  • Can be converted for GIMP too ->

Water Photoshop Brushes Set

As I said, I created those from my own photos (some of you know that I am a professional photographer too) so there are no copyright issues, you get the license with the purchase, so use them as you like.

If you would like to buy photos instead (or if you would like to buy photos too) here is the link ->

In addition, I prepared a video and uploaded to YouTube and it shows how to use Water Splashes and Water Bubbles Photoshop Brushes Set:

Gang, I know, it’s been a while since I made new Photoshop brushes set. It’s been a while.

And, finally, again, after a long time (can’t really go back to check when exactly did I made my last commercial Photoshop brushes set), I can proudly announce yet another product from my little factory of miracles (ok, not really miracles, but i just like the sound of that word ;))

After all, we all need miracles sometimes.

OK. Without further ado, ladies and gentleman, brothers, sisters I proudly present you:

2013 calendar Photoshop Brushes Set 2013 Calendar Photoshop brushes set (3×12 – 36, US version) + 36 PNGs

* up to 683 pixels @300dpi
* up to 1189 pixels @300dpi
* up to 2475 pixels @300dpi

36 transparent PNG files (approx. size 8 inches @300 dpi)

Commercial use OK!

Preview 2013 Calendar Photoshop brushes set  2013 Calendar Photoshop brushes set (3x12 - 36, US version) + 36 PNGs

NOTE: Calendar weeks start on SUNDAY. US standard.

 

Those of you who follow me on Facebook  you already knew this was coming as some of you got a chance to Beta test them..

Thank you Jeanne and Erica! (Please send me your wishes so that I can send you your free set.)

Anyways, the set is here, tested, verified, “bullet proof”, you can completely and totally rely on it for 2013. Some of you might think it’s too early? Some of you might think “What’s the point when the end of the world is here…” etc …

But, I tell you what. What if, just before the end of the world comes, aliens come to pick us up? And then, we find ourselves over there in space ships without Photoshop brushes for 2013.? Do you REALLY want that to happen? Now, don’t tell me “You will have it” Maybe I will and maybe I won’t. It’s always good that more of us have it.

So, I guess I was convincing enough. :)))

(Thanks God my brushes are good enough, otherwise I’d never sell anything with my “convincing” copy :)))

Also, here is some stuff I made with it.

I noticed, ever since I started my Photoshop brushes business that many of my buyers are using Photoshop brushes to create their own custom stamps. And this is, mainly, for two different purposes (which sometimes overlap).

1. They use these stamps in their own DIY projects like scrapbooking or similar
2. And more often then not, they use Photoshop brushes to create designs for stamps which are then being sold to stamp buyers.

And this is all well. The whole idea behind my Photoshop brushes is to help you guys, not just create stuff for your own needs, but also to help you create new stuff out of it (like rubber stamps) and make some money along the way.

There are quite a few services out there offering custom stamps. Most of them offer quick and easy on-line stamp creation. Of course, although most of you will be interested in creation of custom stamps for your scrapbooking and DiY craft needs, still, you might want to have your own signature stamps as well. Or you might want to have  a stamp with your logo on it.

So, in this little exercise, I wanted to see for myself how fast and how easy it is to create your own logo stamp with a little help from Photoshop brushes.

And, believe me, it was faster then I though. Before starting the process there are few rules to know.

  1. First, the image you’d like to have on your stamp must be in full black color. Your stamp can, later on, be in red or other color, but the image you are uploading must be black.
  2. Resolution of the image must be 300dpi. My brushes are in high resolution so this is not a problem.
  3. File formats: cdr, ai, eps, tif, psd, jpg, gif and pdf. Of course, in this case .jpg is probably our choice

So, the procedure is quite simple, create a new file in Photoshop, make it a desired size, but the resolution must be 300dpi, add a Photoshop brush which you’d like to turn into stamp and save the file in .jpg format. (Notice: You might want to crop image so that the blank space between the brush and the edge of the image is maximally reduced.)

Now, step two, on the stampxpress.com, you will go to “Design Your Own Stamp” option and upload the file. You may choose to have up to 20 lines in your stamp but in most of the cases, 3 should be enough. You also get to choose the font type, size, attribute (bold, italic, underline) and the alignment.

And this is how I created a stamp for Graphics-Illustrations.Com.

Finally, many of you will go and look for discount stamps. For these, as well stampxpress.com is probably the right address.

I used today’s free graphic to frame a photo of Mr. Alphons. (image above)

Today, I prepared a little something for scrapbookers. A layered Photoshop (PSD) file which is a digital scrapbooking “Quick Page”. It is a Photo mask at the same time. It is all that and more :)

So, if there is any human being still doing something else apart from writing posts and comments on Facebook, I count on you. I hope you will be reading this, maybe liking this download and maybe you will use it to create a nice graphic using some of your photos with it.

Regarding Facebook. I admit. I spend too much time on Facebook. I sit there every day for hours and I am not sure if I like that. So, I decided to proclaim one day of the week a No-Facebook day! I mean Facebook is nice, but we need to be careful before becoming slaves to the habit (unless it is a habit of creating stuff :))

Ladies and gentleman, let me present you

Say

Say “Thank You!” With This Free Printable Thank You Card

Thank you card

Sometimes it is hard to find the right way to say “Thank you!” And all of us have at least someone in our lives who deserves to be thanked. And I’m not talking about just a casual “Thanks” when someone holds the door for us. I am not, necessarily, talking about our parents, family of friends. It can be someone we barely know, but still they did a great deal for us and deserve our gratitude.

Personally, I believe that a gift accompanied with a nice “Thank you” card is one of the nicest ways to express gratitude.

So, today’s graphic is a Thank you card. You can modify the text and make it a wedding thank you card, birthday thank you card, sympathy thank you card… You could add your photo and make it a photo thank you card. This could be a baby shower thank you card too,  or you could just keep it simple – a thank you card for special purposes.

Download free psd file here (7,5 Mb, zipped PSD, 8×8 inches @300 dpi – print ready)

It is a layered .psd file so you can play with it tune it until it fits your needs.

Font used in this thank you card graphic is: Windsong, from dafont.com

Happy Halloween - iPhone Skin/Wallpaper Designs w/Photoshop brushes

Happy Halloween – iPhone Skin/Wallpaper Designs w/Photoshop brushes

Comments Off

Man, who’d ever say … Halloween is knocking on the door. Just as iPhone 4S is too. So, the idea for this post was no brainer really.

Ladies and gentleman, iPhone 3/4/4s present and future owners, today I proudly present you:

1. Happy Halloween Wallpaper design

2. Happy Halloween Custom Skin Design (iPhone case)

Of course, all of them are made with Photoshop brushes.

If you are a lucky iPhone 4/4S owner and you want to have the Happy Halloween skin please note that there are two files: 1. one for front and 2. one for back.

For iPhone 3 has only one file, basically the same as iPhone 4 for back.

Now, to get these skins, you will need to:

  1. Download the files
  2. Upload them at GelaSkins: Personalize your iPhone with removable protection from GelaSkins. Choose images from 100′s of great artists or upload your own designs!

October 2011 Desktop Calendar Wallpaper

October 2011 Desktop Calendar Wallpaper

I know, I know. It’s 5th already. Well, what can I say? It is a kind of tradition. I am almost always late with calendar wallpapers. Instead of publishing it few days before 1st, I publish it few days after the beginning of the month.

I hope you can forgive me. You know how it is. It is up to muses, not me. :) They decide when will I make stuff.

Well, anyways, ladies and gentlemen, dear visitors, GBG members, today I proudly present you

October 2011 Desktop Calendar Wallpaper is here!

I took this photo a while ago and I picked it because it seemed like appropriate photo for October. I hope you like it too.

In case you were wondering where did these graphical elements come from, well, check them out - Photoshop brushes – Halloween Frames and Photo Masks (FREE Photoshop brushes set for ALL GBG members!)

So, enjoy the beginning of Autumn, it’s colors, misty mornings and … well … colors?

Love you all!

Using Photoshop brushes in Movie DVD Cover Design

Using Photoshop brushes in Movie DVD Cover Design

Comments Off

Yep. The times are tough. But, even in toughest times, the darkest hours in human history, people were still creating, making art. So, when a friend of mine approached me and asked for help in creating design of the DVD cover for their latest non-profit movie, I was more than happy to help.

My friend’s cousin is film director… she directs short movies without dialogues. Her last movie is named “Wolfgirl”… it speaks about human race, nature, animals and their relation-ship.

So, I was really happy to make a cover design for her movie:

DVD Cover and Photoshop brushes

This is the back side of the disc, here is what it says:

When the girl meets the wolf in the woods, a whole new universe is created where everything  becomes possible.
Short movie without dialogue. Only a bit of howling and maybe roar or two :)

DVD Cover and Photoshop brushes

Of course, I put my brushes where my mouth, sorry, design is :)

So, in this design, I used two sets of my Photoshop brushes: Leafy Photo Masks, set of 6 brushes in three sizes available to Gold and Platinum GreenBulbGang.Com members (more info on GBG memberships)

and

Photoshop Brushes - Floral Shapes (37)Photoshop Brushes – Floral Shapes (37)

- 37 High-Resolution Photoshop brushes
- Compatible with Photoshop 7.0 up to newer versions

There is an extra promo gift that comes with Floral Photoshop Brushes set (37): Scrapbook kit Grunge Love !

For those of you who prefer vector files, here is a vector version of “Floral Shapes”:

Vector Floral Shapes set (30)Vector Floral Shapes set (30)

30 brand new Floral Shapes come in:
1. .ai (of course Adobe Illustrator brush, all CS versions)
2. .eps format
3. .cdr (Corel 8.0 up to newer versions)
4. .psd (Photoshop 7.0 up to newer versions)
5. .png (so you can easily use them in any photo editing software)
6. .ai (Vector format for Adobe Illustrator 8 onwards)

Click here for preview:
Illustrator Brushes - Vector Floral Shapes set, 30

I will make sure to provide a link to this movie as soon as it becomes available on line. I’ve seen it (of course) and I liked it a lot. It is a “zero budget, lot of time” movie with two characters, little girl and a dog. It was shot with Canon 5D Mark II camera and I just loved it. Now it will be sent to different competitions for this kind of movies and I wish it very best!

OK. I hope I showed you yet another way to apply Photoshop brushes. After four years of writing about Photoshop brushes I still haven’t exhausted all options. So, enjoy them, play with them, make commercial and non-commercial projects with them and, most of all, have fun creating!

Love,
Silvia

Music heals the soul,

I bet it helped you calm down or cheer up many times. Whether it’s rock, jazz, rumba, samba, pop or classical music … it doesn’t really matter. We all enjoy it.

Now, having said that, here is a little something I wanted to do for a long time. But somehow the muses of the music graphical symbols just skipped my shoulder, until now.

Muses of the musical symbols landed on my shoulder today and I could not resist the urge to sit down by my trustful computer and make, well

Photoshop brushes: Musical Symbols

- in three sizes with

- 15 transparent PNG files included

And these are devoted to our trustful GBG Platinum members.
