I'm trying to design a kit with baby stuff - like that hasn't been done a million times - but I can't seem to find any "public domain" stuff to use that I like. I can't afford to buy the stuff right now, so I guess I'm stuck hand drawing the stuff again. It takes such a long time when I have to hand draw all the little things I need. I finished one kit last night I called Flippy Hippy. I couldn't find a hand peace sign, so I had to draw one and it took me about 2 hours to get it right. I'm not that good at hand drawing - I'm way out of practice. Not to brag (too much), but I won an art scholarship when I was 12 for art lessons at the Winnipeg Art Gallery. I was quite good when I was young. I even had a couple pictures on display at the gallery for 6 months.
Here is a peek at the Flippy Hippy kit. I'm not sure when I'll be putting it up for sale yet. I'm working on getting listed at a couple more stores right now, so I'm not sure where it will be listed, but here's what it looks like.
I thought it was kind of fun, with the papers that look like tie dye. I had to mute some of the colours, because the original colour scheme really hurt the eyes. They kind of turned out pastel, but with the tie dye I think it turned out well. I'm surprised how fast I've built up kits. I think I have a total of 13 kits I've made in the last 2 1/2 months.
So I guess no one liked my Think Pink kit well enough to buy it at 50% off and do a layout to get the add-on kit for free. Its kind of disheartening thinking you're putting all this time and effort into this and no one likes it. Oh well, I'll put the add-on kits up in the store and keep pluggin' away.
Well, back to work. I'm hoping to have a little freebie up by the end of tomorrow (stat holiday here in Canada).
By the way, if anyone knows of some good free for commercial use font sites and/or clipart, drop me a note, PRETTY PLEEEEAAAAASE?????
Talk to you later...
