I’m finally getting into the spirit of Halloween. I don’t think I will go so far as to get dressed up however we did get our daughter a pirate wench costume that looks pretty cool.
I’ve spent weeks sick with what I initially thought was some kind of viral flu. Dragged myself off to the docs on Saturday to find I have a sinus infection and middle ear infection in both ears.
So after a couple of doses of antibiotics, I am slowly starting to feel human again. The ear infections are horrible, not so much from a pain viewpoint however it’s affecting my sense of balance
to the extent that even when I am sitting I feel like I am going to fall over to one side. Walking is a bit of an effort (however I am sure humorous from a bystanders pov) as I am lurching around
the house as if drunk and wearing a huge pair of wobbly boots lolol.
I’m hoping that by next weekend that I will have the WP template of That’s Serendipity finished so as to be able to put that up here on the domain and port it all over from blogger.
So anywho.. onto the details of today’s freebie. It is a big file, approx 76MB. It’s a multilayer pumpkin psd kit that contains 4 plain pumpkins, 4 pumpkins with worms, 6 faces, 5 short stems, 5 long stems and 5 long stems with ivy and cobwebs. Rendered at 300dpi approx 2100px x 3300px, suitable for print.
The example pic above is one of the plain pumpkins with a face and long ivy stem with cobwebs.
What I generally do is open up the psd file and duplicate it and close the original and work on a copy. If you are using PS simply turn on the visibility of the layers that you want to use for a pumpkin and turn off any layers that arent being used. Add a layer at the very top of the layers palette and with that new layer highlighted, Click Ctrl + Alt + Shift + E (all at the same time). This will merge all the visible layers into the single new layer which can then be dragged and dropped to your open layout or you can do further work on the new layer and then select, copy, paste it to an existing document as another layer or create a new file and paste it in and save it on its own as a new document.
Enjoy! and go forth to make a multitude of pumpkins for your Halloween layouts.
