140 watercolor social media icons

update july 2014: these are currently not available for download. i am hoping to have them available again soon. thanks for your patience!

you read that right:
one hundred and forty! 
watercolor social media icons!


backstory: a couple of weeks ago, a friend asked me for help putting social media icons on her blog. i was more than happy to oblige and started looking for a set that would mesh well with her aesthetic.

after browsing through so many options...
i started wanting a new set of icons as well!

...and i decided to experiment with my watercolor and gouache paints!

you may have noticed the result of my work in the sidebar:

god, remember when email didn't even exist??
((...not that i'm old or anything.))

i was so pleased with how they turned out that i wanted to make more!

so i painted a bunch of vibrantly-colored circles...
(which look eerily similar to these watercolor dots thank you notes!)

...and picked the best ones as backgrounds
for these free social media buttons!


the downloads are separated by color and each set contains a zip file with 14 different social media icons for personal use only. icons included are email, rss feed, blogger, wordpress, facebook, twitter, pinterest, instagram, linkedin, youtube, tumblr, picasa, flickr, and etsy.

update: you can download the pastel icons here!


if you like these watercolor social media icons,
please let me know in the comments!

also, be sure to leave a note if you use them --
i'd love to see them in action.
...and i'll add a link to your blog to the list below!

enjoy!

p.s. this is my first time offering free downloads so please let me know if you experience any hiccups. i'd love to correct any imperfections in the process for next time.

p.p.s. much thanks to katrina of {pugly pixel} for her kindness in helping me provide the download links for you.

    1. hi gill, sorry for the confusion! yes, they were free for four months or so before i decided to put them in my etsy shop. each colored set is now $7.50 for nineteen png icons on a clear background. i've also added some other varieties of social media icon sets. let me know if there's a particular color you're interested in!

      my etsy shop for icon downloads is LittleLadderCreative. Here's the link:

  13. Hi Mari,
    I like how unpretentious and positive they are. I wonder if they will work well on my site. Will you allow using them on non for profit art/theatre site?
    Thanks,
    Jacek

  24. Hi there! I've been looking at different stylish add-ons for my blog all night and when I saw these, I absolutely swooned! Then I cried a little when I saw that you are no longer offering them for download. Is there anyway you would be willing to open the download back up again? I would be eternally grateful!

    Either way, have a good day!
