Creating custom brushes in Photoshop is one of my favorite things to do! I love using them for lettering (paired with a wacom tablet), extra decorative elements or just to add a little bit of unique style to whatever I’m making. What’s even better is that they are really quick and easy to make and Photoshop offers a ton of settings to truly make them original. If you’ve checked out my Intro to Photoshop class, you could easily integrate a custom brush to really make your layout special!

In this week’s tutorial, I’ll walk you through what all of those settings do and we’ll create a custom brush in Photoshop together. At the end of the tutorial, you’ll have everything you need to start creating and using your own brand spankin’ new brushes 🙂 Everything is below!
