I've been looking into them, and trying my hand at making a few, but I'm not sure if anyone really uses them.  Huh
 
The ones I've been making are 300 ppi transparent .pngs, which means they might also be usable for digital scrapbooking - but, since I'm so new to that also, I'm not sure.

Any comments or insights would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Bekka

Here's a sample one:

I use Photoshop a lot for things like that, and I have a whole collection of photoshop brush files--their proprietary format. They're fantastic, in that you can resize, change the angles, use different techniques, use different colors, and more. I often like to put a "stamp" of my brush on a separate layer, then go into blending options and change the settings. By doing that, I can make the color of the stamp a gradient, give it a shadow, make the color a pattern, outline it, all sorts of things.

I have a whole collection of brushes that I've downloaded, as well as ones that I've made myself. They're super easy to make from images, scans, or photos that you've made.
