DigiScrap School: Guide to Brushwork


The Photoshop Brush tool is a digital scrapbooker’s secret weapon for building beautiful, graphic page layouts. And if you have not mastered this secret weapon, then this four week class is for you!


In Tiffany Tillman’s Digital Scrapbooker’s Guide to Brushwork, you’ll pair the technical steps of using the Brush tool with the artistry of developing spectacular digital scrapbook layouts. Using detailed exercise files, you’ll learn Tiffany’s secrets for preset brush adjustments, expert distressing, intricate brush artistry, and building digital brushes from old fashioned paint and canvas.




Module Lessons

Module 1: Brush Basics
Your first week encompasses the fundamental basics of the brush tool. From locating the tool in the tools panel, to saving your first brush set, you’ll learn exactly how to access the tool and use the Brush Options bar in its entirety.


Module 2: Got Distress?
Discover Tiffany’s favorite technical and artistic tricks for distressing by way of misting, sanding, inking and destroying. Then complete a single distressed project that combines all Brush Basics and new Distressing techniques.


Module 3: From Canvas to Scanner
Step outside the digital studio with Tiffany and watch her paint and ink original custom brushes using acrylic and watercolor paints onto canvas. Then learn Tiffany’s specific method for developing a variety of brush strokes from each scanned image.


Module 4: Dynamic Artistry
In the final Artistry module, you’ll move beyond the technical steps and pour inventiveness, imagination and unique perspective into a final brush-inspired layout. Using the brushes you created from Modules 1 and 3, you’ll end class with an array of brushes and polished techniques you can use on projects from years to come!
