A couple years ago I developed a website for an intriguing woman; Marsha Hankins. I Am Standing in the Light was the site and on its contact page, as I often like to do, I inserted a photo to help illustrate the page. The photo was a Photoshopped representation of a freeway sign, and more importantly to a new and exciting location.
As luck would have it, I found myself in need of another freeway sign graphic and could not find anything that would suite my purpose in the stock photography houses I prefer to frequent. There was nothing left to do but create my own.
Download and enjoy the possibilities with this layered Photoshop file.

I stumbled into a blog that had adorable guys holding chalk boards with messages to website visitors. I was so taken by it I decided to make my own. Yes, I totally ripped off their idea. I even included Tim Allen as one of the holders. If you use it shoot me a message and show me where; just for fun don’t ‘cha know!
The download is a multi layered Photoshop CS5 (ver. 12.1). Have fun with it.
My Sister Judi occasionally leans on me for help with her graphic arts projects. Today I was asked to solve her Corel Draw issues and send over a flyer that she could use to advertise her upcoming camp-out.
Corel Draw is a great program and can be a lot of fun. Judi had the file so convoluted that starting from scratch was my only option. I fired up Photoshop; waaay more fun that Corel Draw. Using a background I found online on somebody’s free backgrounds blog, the end result is nothing real special, but might help jump start your own Christmas flyer project.
I recently was engaged to create a ribbon seal commemorating a companies twenty years in business. Photoshop to the rescue. While I was at it I decided to make my layered and annotated file available to others who may need a commemorative ribbon seal, but maybe not specifically twenty years.
