Freebie sites

colour_me_violetOctober 17, 2006

So far I have found very few sites that have good and easy freebies on them. I have completed a few. I've run out of things I like. Does anyone have any good sites?

I know there isn't much out there.
Here are some I got some cuties off the other night.

http://www.artistsclub.com/projects/projects_list.aspx?dgtype='FP'&titletype=Free%20Projects

And I found this site that sells primed metalware for painting. I thought it looked interesting.

You got me thinking about it and wondering if there were any new ones that I've missed. Here are a few more I searched out today. Some only have one freebie on them, but it might be that perfect pattern you've been needing!

www.freecraftz.com

www.freecountry.com

www.ladybugcreations.net

www.paintingonjars.com (we've already talked about this one)

Wow! I am sure glad Violet asked this question. I knew about some of these sites but certainly not all of them. I will have to go check them out! Oh no! even more time on this computer! I think this thing has a magnet in it! LOL

I'm really glad I asked this question also. I haven't had a lot of time recently so I have been browsing a little bit here and there. Some sites I have been to before and there were a lot I had not. They look rather interesting. It's always good to have someone elses perspective. When I get more time I will continue on.

Thanks for your insight Amie and welcome. The more the merrier. Wow I am so lucky! I have now printed off this thread so I can keep a record of these sites. I tend to visit things when I am free at work so I will be able to.

Luvs and the other two people that responded thanks for all the info on the free pattens. That is alot of places to check out. Have any of you ever painted on glass before? I thought about trying that out to see what it looks like. Thanks again.

Wow...thanks all! Going through all those will take a while!

I found the flower pot site, from the Busy Bee site. Many of the ones above are also on it...but they are all clickable.

Here is a link that might be useful: Lots of clickable links

I scanned thru the posts and didn't see this one. I came across it tonight and there are 2 free online issues of the Decorative Painter magazine that have quite a few free patterns in them. You just have to go to the pages and open them up. ~Anj

Lots of pretty things there. I see that they are letting us view the mags temporairly. Didn't find any free patterns, but lots of good ideas. And if you click on the membership info, it gives a list of participating businesses with even more pics.

I think PF belongs to the Society of Decorative Painters. Think she said she has collected these mags for many years.

They have some wonderful painters contributing. Most projects are way above my skill level, but they do also feature some for the not so experienced painters too.

Wonderful "eye candy" and lots of great ideas. ;o) TFS

Luvs~ did you look thru the pages of the magazines because there are lots of patterns in there and you can save them. I saved a few of them. You do have to have Adobe Acrobat Reader to view them though. ~Anj

Gosh, Anj, I just went there to check out the bunny and only found cats. Says the page was updated today--do you suppose they took it off? Luvs

Hey Luvs, the rabbit one is at the puddles of paint site. I linked it up below for you. I thought you'd like it because you can incorporate the one stroke roses on it.

That other link isn't working now so I guess you just have to go to www.sweetpatoodies.com and then go to free pattern. I liked the fall leaves one.

Here is a link that might be useful: Puddles of Paint
