Spring Fonts and Graphics


Spring may not be here officially,
 but my thoughts are definitely turned in that direction.
 What a good time to share some of my favorite sources for FREE fonts and graphics. I use Adobe Photoshop Elements. It isn't anywhere near the expense of Photoshop and is a LOT easier to learn.
 So, for me, win-win situation!


The fonts on the following lists are all from dafont.Some are repeated because I was having fun playing with them. Click on each image to enlarge and then download for your own reference.





I am sure you have heard about the wonderfully generous Graphic's Fairy. If you can't find what you are looking for on her site then you probably don't need it, just kidding! She even gives opportunity for you to show and demonstrate how you used her graphics. Loads of inspiration to be found. Warning! Do not look at her site late at night! That is, unless you don't have to get up the next day.

Have you checked  Dover Publishing! They have an awe inspiring amount of books that you can buy that come with a CD. They have gorgeous pictures to use for every thing you can imagine. Did you know that they give free samples every week? While you look at the books you can buy click on the free sample and download to your computer. If you like the samples then order that book. You are under no obligation to buy.
The following graphics are from the sample section....beautiful!

                                       These are from Graphic's Fairy.











Need help installing new fonts?
 Stephanie at Lovely Little Snippets has a very clear tutorial you can check out. While you are there take time to see her favorite font collections. Careful now...you might become addicted. Fonts are like that! Just like Tribbles of Star Trek fame. They multiply!!!

Other sites that have wonderful freebies;



All of these sites have marvelous tutorials and you can buy lots and lots of stuff from each and every one of them. So have fun. Who says you get too old to play? Probably people who are just not that much fun to be around...so don't let them get to you. Take time to play and create something beautiful. You have my permission. Haha! As if you needed it!
Oh Happy Day! I was featured twice this week for my Red Toolbox post ! Thank you, Marty at A Stroll Thru Life and Liz at The Brambleberry Cottage for being so kind...bless you both!
Hope you liked it!

Have an awesome week!

Blessings, Audrey

A beautiful share. I love the Graphics Fairy. She has some of the most beautiful that I have ever seen, and something for everyone.

Have a beautiful weekend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
