scandinavian-style simple patterns – freebies for PS and Ai

This time simple patterns, both for Photoshop (9 in set) and for Illustrator (pattern swatches, there are few extra color versions). Maybe it’s just me(?) but I recover the scandinavian style in them.
pat1pat4pat3pat5pat6pat8pat7 As far Scandinavia – few Junes ago I drove (we were two so I did a half) it all around (Poland > Via Baltica (Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia) > Finnland > Norway (NordCapp) > Sweden > Denmark > Germany > Poland). From all the landscapes I’ve seen so far in my life, some of those above the polar circle were the most amazing ones (and round-the-clock).

first spring blossoms – free Photoshop and Illustrator patterns

I can hardly wait until spring arrives.
Here are my Photoshop patterns inspired by this impatient anticipation. Since they were created in Adobe Illustrator I attached Ai pattern swatches. The source of inspiration were beautiful photos of Penelope Cruz promoting the new Mango Collection.
Anyway, the patterns are free for both personal and commercial use. If you like them I would appreciate some feedback from you (some criticism is welcome as well).

stuck to patterns – freebies for Photoshop and Illustrator

Once again in a row: patterns. Boring, huh? ;) Moreover: again inspired by paper-cuts (of a different style, though) and again produced as a side effect of some other idea I was working on (to be seen soon). Inspired by paper-cuts … well, a pair of scissors would be much much cheaper than the wacom tablet I’ve just bought… (I simply must have mentioned my new dreams-come-true buy).
Here are the patterns:

Free PS pattern: chocolate, pink and cream.

free photoshop and illustrator patterns

I played a bit with the flowers I used on my kokeshi dolls’ kimonos. I added some spiral stems and stroked them with one of the built-in calligraphic brush (we are in Illustrator now). As a result: two sets of patterns for Photoshop (a zipped.pat file) and Illustrator (swatches library in a zipped .ai file). I hope you find them nice and/or useful. If so feel free to download (as always both for personal and commercial use).

How to install/load in patterns:

  • PS: Put the .pat file you’ve downloaded into the folder /Users/{username}/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop CS…/Presets/Patterns (on mac OS X) or C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop\Presets\ (on Windows)  (the dots … are there since I don’t know your PS version).
  • AI: either open the .ai file (my pattern swatches will be automatically loaded) or go to Swatches>Other Library and  choose the path to the .ai file.

Let me know what you think.
