Using brushes for simple scrapping

by | Jun 30, 2009 | Scrapbooking Ideas | 0 comments

Brushes are the rubber stamps of digital scrapbooking. More often than not, you don’t actually “brush” with these handy tools, but rather, you plop them down one at a time. But what makes brushes super special is that you can install them within Photoshop or Photoshop Elements! This means your favorite digital “stamps” can be close at hand!

At first, I found brushes to be a little intimidating. But I discovered the installation to be quite simple and the many uses of brushes so inspiring. Here are some great examples (all images are linked):
