  • I am so inspired by your consistency; your posts have become something that I really look forward to Every Tuesday. It dawned on me that if I spared some time on Tuesdays to implement your tutorials, that my PS, design, ID, & blog building skills would improve by leaps and bounds. I’d also end up with a sizeable collection of original, made-by-me work. Thank you!

  • I agree with Iris. I look forward to every Tuesday (pun intended) and your new tutorials and tips. You have a great way of explaining things. And this is a fun tutorial too! Thank you for another great tutorial.

  • Hi Teela,

    When I created my brush, my colours were muted and the background colour barely showed up at all. The colours were not at all as vibrant as your colours. My brush opacity was set to 100 %. Any idea what I’m doing wrong?

  • Ah, much better. Thank you!

  • Hi Teela

    I’m from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and I was browsing through the youtube to find more about creating watercolor marks in illustrator and found your video and link to your website. I find your online training very interesting and very informative.

    For your info, i’m a beginner in illustrator and photoshop and would like to try to design my a scarf using the confetti effect and my choice of software is the illustrator. How do I create the confetti effect only on the top part the scarf design? I thought of trying out using the repeating pattern method and drag the pattern to the color swatch panel but if i do that, I won’t achieve what i wanted in the first place which is having the confetti effect only at the top part.

    I look forward to your reply.

  • Love your site!! I’ve been using PSE for about 2 years now and still don’t know how to do it all. Is it possible to do the square shapes like yours in PSE or do they have to be done in Illustrator?

  • Thanks for sharing the tips. The video tutorial is awesome. Simple, easy to understand and easy to follow.

  • Awesome, thank you so very much! Just what I needed!

  • Thank you for sharing this. I made a confetti brush to use on a photo project I was working on.
    It worked out great! I made my brush in PS because I don’t know how to use illustrator yet, but hope to learn more from you!

  • I am really excited to use this for my graduation invitation. But I can’t find the box that says Apply Per Tip for
    the Color Dynamics.

  • Hey Teela! Great job, by the way! But I have a question for you! Can you do this is Adobe Illustrator? It would be wonderful if I can!!!! Anyway, another amazing job!!!

  • Hey! I’m working to rebrand my blog and working on a logo and teaching myself Photoshop and Indesign again! I loved this tutorial you really surprised! Great job! I had to subscribe! πŸ™‚

  • Hi there, this tutorial was really great and helpful but I have had a little problem. I just had a go at creating the square confetti from the last part of your tutorial in which you use shapes created from Illustrator. Anyway, for some reason the confetti comes out pixelated. Do you know why this is? Any tips on fixing this. I set up my photoshop file just the same way as shown in the tutorial – 300dpi… Thanks.
