Thinking inside the box

A Christmas in July sale wouldn't feel right without a few free gifts. I've been collecting lots of boxes lately...cereal boxes (we love our cereals), frozen pizza boxes, waffle boxes, and cracker boxes. When you cut these boxes apart...they each have their own krafty goodness inside them. After scanning them and cropping them in Photoshop they make great textured backgrounds. A few other papers were added...and a couple of pictures of the wood shed too. I then combined a few of my chevron overlays and these cardboard textures to create another free set for you. All are for personal or commercial use. But I couldn't stop there. My daughter and I have been playing around with paints lately...her current favorite paints are watercolors. Lots of watercolor experiments have been happening around here. I made some drip, splatter, and spritzed Photoshop brushes to go along with these kraft backgrounds. I just love this look! My daughter had lots of fun spritzing her papers too. The brushes were created in PS CS6 and tested in Elements 11. They are all 2500px or less. I also included most of the brushes in black transparent PNG format (24 pngs in total). The preview only shows a few of the brushes in this set. All are high quality created at 300dpi for print. Enough of the technical stuff and on to the free gifts!

Hope you enjoy creating with these as much as I had making them. Please do not redistribute as them into your own projects.
