Being that it’s the holidays and everything, I figured I’d make sure that everyone can have a white Christmas…as far as textures go at least. I have a set of five, white grungy textures for you guys today and I also threw in five snow textures as a little bonus. Hope you guys like them and Merry Christmas!

Free Texture Tuesday: Grunge Frost

I want to do some winter-themed textures in the weeks leading up to Christmas and I thought I’d start off with something a little out of the box: grungy frost. The frost images came from Flickr and are registered under a Creative Commons license, I’ve left links to the originals below so make sure to go say thanks to the photographers. I went ahead and added a nice helping of grunge and color to the frost, hope you guys like ’em!

[Ask BB] How to Make a Clipping Mask in Illustrator

I recently received an email from Zosia asking me an Illustrator question. Zosia had a vector shape of Africa in Illustrator and wanted to fill the shape with a texture. It’s not as difficult as you might think, but for those of you new to Illustrator, this is a very useful thing to know. You can’t actually “clip” or “cut out” the shape from your texture, but it’s very easy to make a mask, and you still get the same effect.

It’s nearly Christmastime! Which means that I’ll be bringing you a few Christmas-themed texture packs in the coming weeks.

Enjoy!

Free Texture Tuesday: Tire Tracks

Yesterday we had our first snow of the season here in Kansas and I was excited to shoot some cool snow textures, but unfortunately it’s still a little to warm out for the snow to stick to the ground for too long. However, the moisture did leave behind another wonderful texture: mud. I’ve had a few requests to do muddy tire track textures in the past, so here you guys go, enjoy!
