Some of my fondest childhood memories involve playing in the dirt. Sometimes, my sister and I would make your average mudpies, garnished with leaves, flowers, and berries (such as dogwood and snakeberry). Other times, we would create our own villages with mud huts, twigs and sticks for trees (some with leaves, some without), rivers, and, our crowning glory, a volcano. This was especially fun when we could smuggle some vinegar and baking soda to make our volcano erupt!
Anyway, this kit was inspired by those memories. After all, what’s more fun to a kid than getting dirty?
Mudpies! is a 500 x 500 pixel kit divided into 3 zip files. This kit includes 15 papers, 3 flowers, 4 frames, 5 ribbons, 1 sand pail, 5 wordarts, 2 alphas, and 2 “dirty layers” (one 300 x 300, the other 200 x 250). The “dirty layers” are to give your pictures a dingy look. Like in the example below:
Here’s the download link:
Have fun, y’all.
P. S. For those of you who prefer full sized 2400 x 2400 kits, I’m working on something for you, but with the kids weird exam schedules and the new semester starting soon, I don’t know when I’ll finish it. The kit is called “Ren Faire”, and I’ll get it finished and ready to download as soon as I can.
Update 2/24/2015: I’ve gone through all of my links and deleted all of those for 4shared. My account there has been discontinued. Unfortunately, this means that many of my early kits are no longer available. If I can find the time, I may attempt to recreate and/or redo some of them.
