good but u all not honest… u said free but still need money for downloading….?????
apit, this brush is FREE… what do you want?
I have “product section”, so you don’t have to go there if you don’t want to.
Don’t be ungrateful, this makes me sad and unwilling to create anything for free.
Not to mention apit that you didn’t leave your real email address!
But you downloaded it for free, right?
Brave. Nuff said.
Hi I just want to say that I REALLY APPRECIATE all the free stuff you made here for everyone, and as well as the tutorials you have offered here. Currently using Photoshop CS2, you made it look so easy to use Adobe Illustrator. Now I want to go out and buy Illustrator!!!
Can’t wait to tell everyone about you!!!
Many thanks acash 🙂 Now I’m happy! WooHoo!
i tought that making a brush is very difficult….but it’s very simple and easy tutorial! thanks! 🙂
🙂 Uh-Oh! I’m ruining my business 🙂
No, really, making a brush is easy but getting an idea for making a brush is not so easy…

Thank you Sheila for your nice comment 🙂

Hi, I am thankful for the free downloads of brushes you have..I have downloaded some of it though and a specific one I have been trying to search through other sites is the frangipani(plumeria) floral brush or in custom shape..Let alone creating one of this which is far from my knowledge and as a beginner working on photoshop with great downloads from your site is superb..Keep up the good work and hopefully with more of floral brushes free downloads..CIAO
great set of tutorials and free downloads, cant belive what that guy said above about not being able to download for free “idiot” comes to mind… once again thanks for all your hard work its really appreciated…
Brian, we are so happy now! Thanks for your kind words 🙂

Hey I just wanted to let you know that I don’t have a hard time downloading the free stuff at all. Matter of fact, I love this brush and plan to use it do make my next digi scrap grunge frame. Thanks!!

Thank you Leanna, Vivayne and Bunny 🙂
