Stitch Brushes I don't know what to do with them
Posted 30 March 2008 - 10:59 PM
I don't know how to use them or what to do. I have them installed but I'm not quite sure how to use them on a layout.
I use PSE 6 on a Mac ( and still learning 6 from PSE 4!!!)
Can someone help?

I love these stitching brushes and used them on several Layouts. They are created to make the look of a stitch that is falling out. You have a few options. There are different types of stitching holes. They match up with certain stitches. If you play with a few of them you will see which ones go together. Then there are dangly parts. These are fun to add at the end of a row of stitches or skip a few spaces in the middle and add them there.
What really makes these brushes look like stitches is a Style. This will give them a 3-D effect, and really help them to pop off the page. There are several stitches and holes Styles under the ScrapSimple Tools Section in the boutique. If you get something like this, then you apply a holes style to the holes layer (make sure it is brushed on a separate layer from your stitches). Then you apply the stitches style to the stitch layer. This really completes the effect.
You can see how I used them on these LOs, sorry I just realized these are not in my gallery, but they are in the boutique for another product. Theresa and I worked together on these products as a ScrapSimple Club.

They are easy to use, but be warned.... they are highly addictive. They are fun to really complete different looks. Especially if you use templates for things, it really gives you a finished look.
