Summer has finally arrived in Toronto and I couldn’t be happier.
After a snowy and record cold winter, and a cooler than usual spring, I am definitely ready for some sun!
One of my favorite summer activities is gardening, and I find lots of art inspiration in it. Although my garden isn’t in full bloom just yet, it’s definitely getting close. My veggies are growing like crazy and we’ve already eaten our first few strawberries and honey berries – yum!
The only problem with all the nice weather (if you can call it a problem), is that all sun outside makes it tough to sit in my office all day. When I need a long break, I sneak out of the city to Sheridan, one of my favorite garden nurseries. Browsing all the beautiful, colorful blooms inspires me to create something new. I always come home feeling refreshed and inspired.
Sharing the Dahlia Love
It was a recent trip to Sheridan that inspired me to create my June Freebie. I’ve loved dahlias since I was a little girl. They’re big, bright and cheerful. I always thought they looked like colorful pompoms decorating the garden. The garden center has so many pretty dahlia colors and varieties – I want to bring them all home with me. I envy those gardeners who have the space and sun to grow them!
Maybe I can’t grown them in my own garden, but creating my free vector dahlias is one way of enjoying them. And the best part? Now I can share the Dahlia Love with you!
Get Your Free Vector Dahlias
I be making lots of other colors available in my own shop, Etsy and Creative Market, but Navy & Blush has been such a popular color theme lately I thought I’d offer the Navy & Blush Dahlias as a freebie.
These free vector dahlias are seriously versatile. They include EPS and AI (CS5 and up) files, plus 96 PNG’s, so they’re easy to use in almost any software (even MS Word!). They look perfect over dark, light or textured backgrounds. Because there are 3 different outline options, they’re great for layering to create borders and frames. And hey, they’re free! Experiment!

As always, you may use this freebie for personal or small business projects,
but please do not sell, share or redistribute the files (even for free).
