As I promised, here is a quick tute on using brushes in photoshop or photoshop elements.
You can get sets of brushes free from lots of sites on the net - just type for example, "leaf brushes" in google.
You will have to sift through a bit for the free ones, but it's worth it in the end. also, you will need to find the correct directory to put them in on your computer in program files, so that Photoshop elements can find them.
There are also plenty of tutes on making your own brushes if you feel like more computer time -lol
I use photoshop elements.
First I open a blank document.
Have fun playing with this, but remember, the fibre is the thing. A computer is no substitute for some fabric paint and your own creativity.
Hopefully tomorrow, I'll have some fibre stuff for you.
