Well I finally ventured into my CS3 Illustrator program that has been sitting dormant on my computer since I bought the Suite earlier this year. I was pretty intimidated by it, it doesn't "act" like Photoshop although it does have a lot of the same tools. I have at least three books on the program that I haven't bothered to read, including Adobe's Classroom in a Book that was pretty pricey. I read a couple of tutorials online today and thought I'd give it a try. Today's freebie is a set of swirl type border shapes that I created in Illustrator and then saved as eps files and then opened in CS3 where I made custom shapes from them. They are kind of doodily (not a word, I know) and definitely not perfect! I think I am going to like Illustrator, especially when I figure out what all the slick buttons do! I need to take a week off and just work on learning Illustrator, InDesign, and Acrobat Pro. Ok, maybe I need to take several weeks off! LOL. Anyway, I saved all these shapes in png form plenty large for those of you who cannot use the custom shape file. The borders are 12" wide so you can drop them in your layouts or kits without any resolution loss.
Thanks to all who had such kind comments about my award. My readers are the BEST! You don't know how rewarding it is to read each and every one of them! Here's the preview and download links for today's freebie, not all the shapes are shown in the preview.
