Goode Ole Tyme

In a complete 180, this week I decided to try for something vintage.  Something with a nice antique, retro, feel.  And so we have us a Goode Ole Tyme.

Goode Ole Tyme contains:

  • 17 papers
  • 12 flowers
  • 19 frames
  • 6 sequins
  • 6 glitter tiles
  • 2 scalloped lace edges
  • 2 phonograph records
  • 2 radios
  • 1 television
  • 4 bottle caps
  • 1 alpha (upper- and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols)
  • 6 buttons
  • 6 round labels
  • 4 stickers/labels
  • 3 sheets of notepaper

The alpha itself was made with the font Rockwell Extra Bold.  If you have Windows, you should already have this font.  If you don’t have it, you can get it here.  Inside the alpha, the text is from The Epic of Gilgamesh, because you can’t get much more antique than that, and the font is Lucida Calligraphy.  This is another font that usually comes with Windows.  If you don’t have it, you can purchase it here.  Other fonts used in making this kit are:  Loki ColaContribute, Creampuff, and PowerChord.

To get the worn, vintage look on the papers and labels, I used several grungy type brushes from Obsidian Dawn and Touchstone Art.

The following tutorials were used in making this kit:

In the “Awesome” sticker tutorial, you are required to use the High Pass Sharpen filter in Photoshop.  I don’t have Photoshop, and the High Pass Sharpen utility in Paint Shop Pro doesn’t give the same effect, but I found this plugin for GIMP that does:  Highpass Sharpen Filter for Gimp.
