This year I’ve started a new post category, Friday Freebie. Every Friday I will be giving away something for free; to start it might only be textures, but as I get more into (digital) mixed media, it might be digital stencils, digital brushes, or even an image that you can use. I hope that you enjoy creating with the freebies.
Today’s freebie was created using Spray Inks on Mixed Media paper. Actually, the texture is a scanned baby wipe that I used to clean up the overspray. The bonus freebie was created by setting my ink colored stencil, ink side down, on a wet baby wipe. I scanned both (dry) baby wipes at 600 dpi so you have a high resolution image to play with. The final image size, after shrinking down a bit, is 6000 x 4000 @ 300 dpi. The bonus freebie is 4000 x 4000 @ 300 dpi. The .zip file is 31.04 MB
* Note: The file is stored in my Dropbox account. If you don’t have an account with them, and don’t want an account, look at the bottom of the box and click on “No thanks, continue to view“.
Here is a sample to show you how I used both of today’s free textures. I used Jixipix’s RipPix app and Affinity Photo to create this digital mixed media piece. RipPix created the nice “torn” paper look on the left, everything else was created/put together in Affinity Photo; the hearts were created using the shape tool. I used the iPad version of Affinity Photo, and my Apple Pencil, to create the dots in the green heart…and around all 3 hearts, then added an emboss fx.
I would love to see what you create with this texture. Feel free to share it on the Facebook group, here.
