Easter Eggstravaganza

Mar 19, 2009

OK, I should take a copywriting course! With Easter eggs all over the net, I decided to create my own line of freshly designed eggs. Maybe I’ll even put some up for sale here, too.

Once I have the basic egg shape, I use my decorative brushes for painting them on. TIP: It is helpful to duplicate your more popular brushes and just rotate them. That way, when it comes to painting them on, you don’t need to paint and then rotate, as all options appear as thumbnails in the Brushes pallette.

Doodle Arrows Freebie Brush Set

Mar 12, 2009

This brush set was inspired by the arrow doodles in my sketch book. I think they will be useful for all things spontaneous or informal.

There are 16 high res brushes in this set.

Response to the Davinci-esque Brush Freebie

Mar 10, 2009

Thanks to fmr from France for sending in her background which she made using the Davinci-esque brush freebie from the previous post. And yes, I do love to see what people are doing with these brushes. From your comments, I see that these brushes are as useful for scrapbooking as I had hoped.

Here’s what fmr had to say:

Thanks for the DaVinci-esque brush; Love it ! 
Converted to PS7; resized it to master size of 500; added dynamics. When my custom brush was ready, I used it on several layers with various blend modes. Just thought that maybe you would like to see what people do with your stuff …

Pretty Paper Freebie

Feb 16, 2009

I have just made this paper using two of my dynamic brushes (with a single stamp brush in the corner for decoration), and I’m so pleased with how it turned out that I’ve decided to give this paper away absolutely free! Click on the image to download. I’ve received so many amazing comments, and it would be great to see how you use this paper or the brushes in your own art. Please send me a link when you have something to show and share.

These are the brushes I used, which are very large and excellent quality. The pair is on sale for $1.50.
