Project Life: Embellishing with Digital Brushes

Whether you are doing a digital or hybrid project life, digital brushes can be used to add that something special to your pages. You can use them to stamp on top of your photos, or to create fun and unique pocket cards. When I’m working on my pages I have fun going through my stash to find the perfect ones to help accent that week’s pages. Brushes are incredibly versatile and you can customize their color and size to ensure the right fit for your page.
A few of my favorites are:

Life In Pictures Brushes and Stamps
Stamped Sentiments No. 06 Brushes and Stamps
Check Cards No. 01 Brushes and Stamps
Day Of The Week Banners
(**Tech Note: Send a shortcut of your Photoshop/PSE Brushes folder to your desktop. This will make loading new ones easy peasy.)

Here are a few examples of how I have used brushes on my project life pages. On week thirteen’s page I used them on my title card, pocket card, and to embellish one of my photos.
