Free Editable .PSD Frame Mock-ups

Free Editable .PSD Frame Mock-ups

I use frame mock-ups every day in product photos for my art prints and digital downloads. They make my workload infinitely lighter by not making me print and mat and frame and hang and photo every single piece I make. 🙂

But the ones I’ve found were in odd sizes, at least for me. My watercolor paper is 9″ x 12″ (3:4 aspect ratio). I like to work at 8″ x 10″ (or another 4:5 aspect ratio) for digital.

Few files let you change the colors, and what if you’re feelin’ a bubblegum-pink mat?

So I’ve made my own frame mock-ups to suit those sizes. I loved making them and decided I would share the fully-editable .PSD files with you.

I will continue to update and add to this post as I make more frames. Check back soon!

Reframing Death in a Positive Light: Free Printable Wall Art

“Reframing”? See what I did there? You can groan, that’s fine. I would.

Now originally, I was searching for some Halloween-y quotes and poems for a little typography experiment. Once you get into ghosts, spirits, graveyards, ~nighttime~, etc., you eventually run into thoughts on death. While some leaned toward the more solemn or even depressive end of the spectrum, I found several quotes and poems on death that were really, really positive.

So positive in fact that I thought, “I would hang that on my wall as a lovely reminder in my most anxious moments.”

That may be odd to some people, or even “not helpful at all, Celia. Let’s stick to the candy and costumes and pretty leaves.” Fair enough, man, fair enough. I will hook you up next time, friend.

Take a look at the preview below, then find download instructions after the image.

Choose a printable below, or all 3. 🙂

Each is 8″ x 10.5″ at 300 DPI, so they will print out crisp and clear on 8.5″ x 11″ paper. They will have a quarter-inch border all around for easy matting. I highly recommend using quality, thick paper; like a card stock. If you have archival-quality ink in your printer, even better.

But, neither of those are necessary of course. If you like it, print it out & hang it up. Easy as that.

What the heck does that Latin mean?

You may be wondering what that quote from Horace means. “Pulvis et umbra sumus” means “we are dust and shadow.” I think that fits beautifully with the Carl Sagan quote “We’re made of star stuff. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself,” which is one of my favorites.

I named the file in English so you won’t forget. 😀
