Have you ever played around with brushes? They’re actually quite fun to play with. Brushes can give a very artsy feeling or, depending on the brush, add some whimsical feeling to your page. I’ve seen brushes that are shabby, fancy, beautiful, cutesy, etc.
We wanted to have a challenge to give you the excuse to pull out your brushes and use them!
Want to see what our awesome Creative Team came up with? Prepare yourself for some eye candy:
I love how marylc added such beautiful coloring to this stunning vintage brush.
Annette was very clever and created a checkerboard edge to match the floor in her photo and used her brushes in each square. Very fun idea!
Nann used some whimsy frames and added darling elements to compliment her adorable brushwork.
ouisiekelly did fun things with the snowflake brush and the rainbow brush! I think it has a whimsy feeling.
This page by simplyhx is just breathtaking. I love how she has created the artsy feeling here to match her heartfelt journaling. It’s a stunning page.
Do you feel inspired now? I hope so! I think each of these Creative Team ladies have managed to capture and express such different and beautiful ways of using brushes.
We would love to see what ways you love to use your brushes — or any experimentation you would like to try!
Please join us in the Brush Challenge by doing the following:
1. Create your own layout with any kit you love using any brush you love.
2. Post your individual pages in the Brush Challenge Gallery.
