For my second post of the night I am offering my first brush set created with CS3. I offered several brush sets that I created in PSE but the awesome thing about Photoshop is that I can create directional brushes! This means that when you draw or "paint" with your brush, the tip will follow the direction of your mouse. Very cool! And they will work in PSE too! (tested in PSE6 only.) I made a few stitches as my first brush set. You can adjust the settings for the spacing, angle, roundness, etc. of each brush to create dozens of different looks with this simple set! I tried to make it appear that some of the stitches had "holes" under them. Here's an example of how some of the stitches look when I stroked a path around a flower shape with the brushes:
I recommend placing the stitching on it's own layer in your document. Then you can add layer styles (drop shadows or bevels, etc) to the stitches. You can also change the size jitter to get "messy stitches" that are not all the same size. I love playing with brushes, they are so versatile and so adjustable! I hope you like this set as much as I do! Here's the preview and download links; if you missed my earlier post, I'm trying a new file sharing host to see if it is more convenient and/or faster. The nice thing is there is no advertising or timer for you to wait on to download. However, you cannot post comments on File Savr so I don't know if I am going to like it. If you try the File Savr link, please let me know how it works for you!
