    Today I started out by sticking a mixture of all kinds of paper to a sheet of watercolour paper. I followed this with a light brayering of white acrylic paint to blend everything together. Then decided I would play some more with the flower stencil I used yesterday and ended up with this image.

    Flower Pattern

    I couldn’t decide what to do with it next. So I scanned it into the computer and stated playing. This was my favourite of all the blends I came up with.

    Flower Pattern Blend

    I liked it, but I wanted to take it further. It occurred to me that it would look cool as the pattern on a christmas tree shape, so I set off on a hunt for some Christmas tree brushes. I found some beauties here at Photoshop Graphics

    Christmas Card 2

    Of all the Christmas Tree shapes in the brush set, this was my favourite! But I still wasn’t finished!I decided to create my first Christmas card of the year – well two actually! I think I prefer the one without the writing on the front. What do you think?

    Quite a productive day really from one simple piece of artwork!

    Hi Danielle! To load brushes you need to approach it from the photoshop end. Open Photoshop and click on the brush icon on the left hand tool bar. Select the pull down menu which you choose your brushes from (top toolbar, 2nd icon along). At the top of the pop up menu in the right hand corner is a small arrow. Click on the arrow and you should get a pop up menu appear. About half-way down the menu click on ‘Load Brushes’. A file selection box will appear. Use this to find and select the brush file you downloaded and photoshop will add the brushes to the end of your brush selection list. Hope this helps 🙂
