Christmas Wreaths FREEBIE

The other night I was trying to figure out how to make my own brushes on Adobe Illustrator and I ended up making these two wreaths.

New Social Media Set!

 I just finished making some more social media icons.

These ones are super pretty in aqua, bright pink, gold and blue.

New social media icon set in gorgeous colors: hot pink, aqua, gold and blue. It includes 25 of the most popular icons and they come in two sizes. GradeONEderfulDesigns.com

For $3 you get all the icons shown above plus a blank one that you can customize yourself.

I make them in two sizes: 50 px and 400 px.  My thinking is that the 50 px size works really well for blogs and websites.

The 400 px size is too large for your blog but can be used for product pages, portfolios and business cards. I made them extra large so that you can reduce them, as needed, without losing the quality.

If your icons are too small and you want to enlarge them they're always going to end up looking a little fuzzy. Not just with mine, but with everyone's! But since you can always reduce the size without losing quality I like to err on the side of too big so that your icons always look sharp, crisp and beautiful!

You can purchase them on my Etsy Shop or on my Teachers Pay Teachers Shop

And here's an image of my inspiration:


I love this colour combo from In Color Balance.

New Social Media Icons

I haven't been too active on my blog lately, but that's because I've been busy updating my shops and making some new products.

Here are the latest social media icons.

FREEBIE: Raccoon Clip Art

I'm working on a set of raccoon clip art, or maybe it will be a set of forest animals ... I'm not sure just yet. But in the meantime, here's a sweet little raccoon freebie for you.

If you grab him, and I hope you do, please leave a comment.

As with all my freebies, he's for personal use only. 

Thanks!!



Brand New Social Icons

I have four new sets of icons for you! Three are social media sets and one is a set of sewing icons.

All my icons are made by me, from scratch, and most of them come in two sizes: 50 px and 400 px. The smaller ones are ideal for putting on websites and blogs, and the larger ones are good for product pages. They're actually a little big but I wanted them that way because then it's super easy for you to reduce them to your desired size without losing any of the crispness.

Here are the latest:


These are the sewing icons. You receive these 18 icons in the four colours shown and the two sizes. These were made by special request:)


Then I made a matching set of social media icons.


This set was also a special request. 



And lastly, a fun set of glittery gold icons. These ones are all the same colour, but they come in four different shapes and the same two sizes.
Etsy Shop LINK  ~~  Teachers Pay Teachers LINK


If you'd like some icons but want them in a different colour or shape, please send me an email at beleyne (at) gmail.com OR fill out the contact form in the sidebar.

For most requests I just make them up and then put them in my shop for the usual $3 or $4. Then if you like them and wish to purchase - awesome - and if not, no worries:)

BONUS:
Since this is a new blog and I'd like to generate some participation and traffic, if you leave a comment with your email then I'll randomly draw a name and send the winner the set of your choice.

I'll let it run for a week.

Thanks for stopping by!


Flower FREEBIE Clipart!

I've been playing around in Illustrator and came up with these flowers the other day. After I put them into a vase I started experimenting with gradients.




Flowers in a Vase: Clipart Freebie


I'm still not very good at gradients but I did manage to get the light parts all on the left side, so THAT's a start:)  I think it kind of looks like they're sitting on a sunny windowsill...maybe...if you squint your eyes and tilt your head.

The flowers are in png format and are 7.5 inches tall.

They're for personal OR small commercial use (e.g., to decorate one of your teacher products ~ but be sure to give me credit).

Enjoy!


Show & Tell Tuesday

I'm linking up today with Stephanie from Forever in 5th Grade.
I thought this would be the perfect linky for some summer fun and also to let you know a little bit about me, seeing as how this is a new blog. Although I've been blogging "forever" at Grade ONEderful!


First up is a picture of our Inner Harbour. I'm lucky enough to live in Victoria on Vancouver Island. If you've never been for a visit, you MUST come. It's a very pretty city.

Two evenings ago my husband and I went out for dinner and this was our gorgeous view.


Last month we took the Clipper to Seattle for the weekend. We went with three other couples and had a whole boatload of fun. 

Of course, when you visit Seattle, you have to go to Pike's Place. That's where I found this pig:)




Last, but definitely NOT least, I'm now a grandma to this sweet little babe, Miss Ivy Autumn.


Have a great summer, friends!

And don't forget to stop by again. My next post is some free clipart :)

Free Optical Illusion Colouring Sheets

I was looking around pinterest today and found these really cool optical illusions that Amy Allender did with her 3rd grade class.

She had her third graders draw their own lines and circles. There's no way my six year-olds could do that, so I made up my own grids for them to colour. I made two in black and white and then decided to colour them, also. Each grid is 6 inches square.

I had so much fun making the one with the circle that I made another with a heart.
