There’s a huge abstract art trend that has taken over the blogosphere and has me quite delighted I know not everyone has the time, energy or desire to break out their paint palette so I thought I would do it for you. I created some watercolor/gouche hand-painted stripes that you can load as Photoshop brushes and play with colors and effects without the expense or mess of the real thing! Some of the brushes come as stripe sets others are individual stripes (which are perfect for blog design elements.) I am crazy for Photoshop brushes and I hope to get you hooked as well. If you need help with loading your Photoshop brushes please consult the wonderfully creative Rhonna Farrer. Download your hand-painted stripe Photoshop brushes here.
