Free alpha and masks

Well I finally got the two things I really wanted to add on to my Ghost Train Freebie done. There's an alpha and two photo masks. My original part of the train is two posts down.

The upper case all have a Halloween graphic on them and then there's a matching plain lower case for you to mix and match as your imagination dictates!

I love making photo masks and these were fun because my favorites are always grungy and Halloween seemed like the perfect fit for lots of grunge and fun stuff. I've shown you examples of them with photos clipped to them - my grandsons with great face painting one done at Disney World and the other done at a down town street fair - can you tell which is which??? If I didn't know I sure wouldn't be able to tell - the lady we had down town was awesome!

I've been experimenting with shadows lately and I really wanted to do something fun and funky with this alpha - I have a program which puts shadows on a separate layer, so it allows me to do a lot. I didn't do it because I was taught not to leave external shadows on elements, but I wanted to ask you - do you really hate it when designers create elements with shadows?

Don't miss the train

What a great line up of designers for the Ghost train! Thanks so much to those of you who have left comments, when you design freebies it pretty much makes your day! My part is in the post just below this one. I just wanted to let those of you who have been downloading my Make A Scene pages that there are a couple in the Halloween Kit too. Here's my favorite. I thought of it as "Halloween is over - or is it?" With our little Will putting his costume away and a lot still going on outside his window and in his room. You can personalize the little name plate on the wardrobe. Everything else is already in the scene. Just extract your little (or big) one and pop them into the scene.

I also wanted to let you know that if you are still looking for more Halloween stuff and are willing to go into my archives I still have last years Halloween freebie up but it doesn't match the Ghost Train color swatch. You can get that one HERE
