New Alpha - We, the People

Yes, folks, it's another alpha! *laughs* I've been busy this week! Actually, I was doing it for the Fourth of July, but I got a little behind. I realize that not everyone will want this, since not everyone who passes through here will be an American... but hopefully those folks can find something else that pleases them.

So, here is 'We, the People'... if you chose to snag it to use for something that will be displayed on the web, please be so kind as to provide a link back here so other travelers may come and see if there are other things available that they may like. It's fine to share the alpha with a group so long as you provide a link back to this blog. All other terms of use apply.

The preview is below, and the zip can be downloaded here.

All constructive criticism is welcome. Have an awesome weekend!

New Alpha - Geometrics

I was playing around with the effects filters in my Paint Shop Pro today, and I came up with the geometric design that I used for the fill on this alpha; I thought it was pretty groovy, so I looked around for a font that would mesh well with it. I found this font, which is called 'Boogie Nights', at 1001 Fonts (they lie a LOT, because they have WAY more than a 1001 fonts there! *laughs*), and it was as groovy as the fill, so I went with it. It sort of reminds me of some of the psychedelic posters that were on the walls at the Infinite Mind, a place on Fairfax Avenue across the street from Canter's Deli back in the days when I was a gen-u-wine, certified Sunset Strip hippie. Wow, does that bring back some fond memories!

At any rate, this alpha is the result of that little trip down memory lane. I hope there are some alphaholics and scrappers out there that will find it interesting. The usual terms of use apply - if you are new to my blog, you will find the terms of use about a third of the way down the right side bar... The preview is below, and the zip file can be downloaded here.

Constructive criticism is always welcome; you may leave your comments in the section below. And please feel free to send your friends around if they are scrappers or alpha collectors, or just want to look! Peace!

Spring Pastels Alpha

Hello, fellow travelers! know I haven't been around recently. I've had a little period where I was not quite feeling up to snuff (I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia a few months ago... it is a pain in the neck... and the back... and everywhere else! *laughs*) , and because of it, I was a bit less than creative. Since I have gotten to feeling a little more artistic these past few days, I found myself working on this new alpha. I think it turned out fairly well, and I hope some of you will think so also. The preview of the alpha is below, as is the 4shared link for the zip.
