Shiny Object: Pugly Pixel

A shiny object is anything that catches my eye and makes me smile. I thought it only fitting that the first shiny object I share with you is the Pugly Pixel. What a cute name! But the Pugly Pixel is so much more than that! This dynamic and inspiring site is the weblog of the talented Katrina Tan, and it is packed with shiny goodness!

Pugly Pixel features free resources for web graphics like clip art, photo frames, bling for your blog, or photoshop brushes and textures. Don't ya just love these colorful tape strips? Fabulous!

In the marketplace even more fun and fabulous downloads are available for purchase at a great price. I love the Stationery Textures shown here!

While you're visiting Pugly Pixel, don't miss the tutorials page! You can learn how to remove backgrounds with Photoshop, make your own digital staples, and how to create unique Photoshop brushes like these pinking shears.

I chose Pugly Pixel as my very first shiny object to share because I fell in love with the site when I recently redesigned my blog! I used this incredible {and free!} blog stock photo of vintage sequins to create the buttons for my sidebar. I wish I had this collection in real life!

The Pugly Pixel has a very generous Terms of Use policy, so be sure to read it when you pop over to check out all the goodies on the site. Thanks Katrina for so generously sharing your creative talents! Your blog has provided me with many hours of happy distraction!
