Amazing Old Sign Marquee Set

Speaking of trends, I know you have seen these fun old marquee letters all over the place. I fell in love with them more after watching  Joanna Gaines on HGTV's Fixer Upper. I love her style and because I lived in Texas for so long, I related to it so much.

Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago. I had tried making this effect several times, but just couldn't get it right. Thanks to Angie & Debbie at ScrapGirls, who came to my rescue with some great inspiration images. This is the one that flipped some switch in my

It was an image from zulily & the image above shows me working on the set. Loved it, the rust was perfect! So now we have the whole set...

  • Mixed Alphabet (Letters A to Z)
  • Mixed Numbers & Some Punctuation (0-9)
  • 3 Lighting Photoshop Styles
  • 7 Assorted Signage Embellishments
These elements come in PSD & PNG file formats. Each one comes with separate bulbs so you can add whichever lighting style you'd like or leave them simple. They also come with separate shadows. In the PSD files, the bulbs are randomly pre-lit with some of the styles, however you can easily change them using the provided Photoshop Styles, or add styles from your own imaging program. Each letter or number is approximately 2 inches at 300 DPI.

PS... you can even remove the bulbs all together and just have a fun rust alpha set to play with.

Layout Inspiration:
Maybe this can give you some ideas on how to use them..... 
Create a title on your page.
Use it as a monogram or initial ;)
Create a "blinky" to grab interest.
 Be sure to stay tuned into the blog for a tutorial on how to create am animated layout using Junkyard Marquee. If you just can't wait, you can pick up some tips from another video tutorial I did using the same concept. You can find it here: Breaking Down the Layout 8 - Animated Layout Video Tutorial.
