Using Photoshop Brushes in Web Design

WP Theme

Image on the left is the original. And my blog (graphics-illustrations.com) is the re-vamped version of it.

Today, I was thinking about showing you how Photoshop brushes can be used in web design. To be more specific in web re-design. Or to be even more, like, truly specific, in re-design of a WordPress theme.

So, since I never was much of a programmer I figured I’d find some WordPress theme that at least resembles me of something that I might wanna use for my blog and then just fine-tune it until I get what I want.

And that’s what I did. This is the original theme. The name of the theme was “Waters edge” and this little thumbnail on top represents what it looked like when I downloaded it.

And  this blog is what this theme looks like after the re-vamp.

So, let’s go and explain in more detail. Here is what brushes I used in order to re-design the existing WordPress theme and turn it into something new.

In this area I used following Photoshop brushes:

1. Stickers
2. Brush strokes
3. Splatters (or Splatters and dripping ink)
4. Grunge stars

And voila!

One more example of Photoshop brushes usage. This time in WordPress design. I hope you liked it and that it will give you a piece of inspiration for your own work.

Have fun creating!
