I have just released some new journal brushes, and you will now find them at:
Journal Brushes are available separately, or in a bundled Collection, which offers you the best value! These brushes were created using my Layered Journal Templates, and I have added texture and “sanding” to create a slightly scruffy look. Just stamp them on your page to create a beautiful spot to add your journaling.
They are also the perfect complement to the Layered Journal Templates. Open a Layered Journal Template, and turn off the journal lines; use the remaining design as a frame, and then stamp the coordinating brush to create a place to add your journaling.
I love the versatility of brushes. By placing them on their own layer, you can adjust their opacity and/or blending modes, apply styles to them, stamp them in the color you wish, or clip papers to them….. there are just so many things you can do with brushes!
Here is a layout by Cathy. She stamped a journal brush to the left of her framed photo. By lowering the opacity of the brush, she achieved a beautiful look that goes perfectly with the sun flare and mood of her page.
In the layout below, Renee has used a journal brush as a frame for her beautiful flower. She stamped the brush, using a light green color, then lowered the opacity of the brush just a tad. This, along with the shabby look of the brush stamp, has created a soft look, perfect for this page. Renee used 2 of my Damask Overlays for the pink and green background papers, and my Sweetums Kit for the embellishments.

Lella got in some play time this week too. She stamped a journal brush, using a lovely gold color, to match the Rise and Shine paper and elements she used. Beautiful! Wouldn’t this be perfect for an Art Journal?
Whether you are a brush lover, or new to brushes….I hope you will love using these brushes!
