CU Vector Circle Overlays

Today’s freebie is a result of a lot of playing I have been doing in my newest program: Gliftex.  I’m not sure how I had never heard of it but I receive a weekly newsletter from Sue Chastain for About.com and last week she offered a bunch of free patterns she created with Gliftex.  You can read her review of the program HERE
What I especially like about the Pro version is that you can export the image into vector format. I can save the seamless image as an EPS file and open it in Illustrator to tweak it.  These three overlays are the result of just ONE of the images I made in gliftex.  I created scatter Illustrator brushes from some of the designs in the EPS and then created an image that I rasterized in Photoshop and saved as a Jpeg. I have literally spent hours playing with Gliftex because it is so fun to see what you can come up with!  Look for many more Gliftex inspired freebies in the future!

(Edit 7/13 – I uploaded the Illustrator Brushes to my DA Account and they can be downloaded HERE)
