This park is a 10 minute drive from our home. Makes for a wonderful afternoon of fun and education! And it's so beautiful in the fall. For Lori Cook's Brush Set: Thankful It's Autumn.
The base of the cluster is created with one of the brushes from Lori's set. You may notice from the marketing image that the center of this brush is solid or opaque. Once I stamped the brush on it's own layer on my layout, it was easy to select the center with my magic wand tool and copy the selection to it's own layer. To that, I added some additional "brush strokes" in different colors picked from the layout using a grunge brush. I finished it off with a small stroke and shadow style.
