Download the image pack (for those without Photoshop & GIMP)

Brush Tip: When using these, they look really quite pretty just on their own. However, to achieve the look that I’ve done here in my preview image, you’ll use a white color to apply the brush. Make sure it’s on its own layer. Then, go in and add a layer style to that layer: outer glow. Choose a bright, vivid color. I changed then changed the opacity of that glow to about 55-60%, and I moved the “size” slider up until it looked good to me. Working with a brush that was sized to 400 pixels, for instance, I changed the “size” of the glow to 49 pixels. Play around with it until it looks how you want!

    Do your brushes work with photoshop cs5?

    • Stephanie

      Yep. When I say they’re compatible with Photoshop 7+, that means any version of Photoshop that’s come out since 7 – including the CS series. :)

      • anna

        Thanks :))I’m making a flyer for a Christmas party, so I’ll try them out these days and let you know how they worked for me :D

  • juliana

    Do this brushes work on Photoshop Elements 6? Because i’ve tried to download this brush but it says that it don’t are to photoshop elements 6

    • Stephanie

      It does work, yes. All Photoshop Elements version 2 and onward will be able to use these. Are you unzipping them? Are you installing them correctly? You’ll find links on how to do both in my sidebar.

      • juliana

        Yes i’m unzipping them and i foloud a blogger how to do it but for me it didn’t work. but first I change the zip to abr like the other brushes to take in the brush in photoshop but when i start it it says that it’s not for this version of photoshop elements

        • Stephanie

          Oh no, you don’t want to “change” the ZIP to an ABR. You unzip or extract the file. Don’t just change the extention. You shouldn’t have to change a thing on the file to get them to work in ANY of the compatible programs.

  • thanksalot

    woooow, amazing!

  • Carol

    Please could you tell me if your brushes will work in painshop?
    Thank you and thank you for such a very informative site, I have only been on here for about 40 minutes and already learned I need to learn how to use these brushes, Absolutely amazing results and thank you for sharing all your knowledge with us all
    Thank You

    • Stephanie

      Paintshop? I’m really not sure. The only programs that these will definitely work in is Photoshop from 7 and upward (including the CS series), Photoshop Elements from 2 and up, and Gimp 2.2.6 and up. Any other graphics program that uses brushes can use the image pack that I also offer as a download to make brushes in that program. As for how to do that, an internet search should provide the answer, and it’ll depend on the program.

      Hope this helps!

      • Carol

        Thanks Stephanie! I have just downloaded the GIMP so I will have a go with this software, and also look around to getting them to work in your image pack
        Thank you so much for your help

  • elricthenecromancer

    Good evening

    Thank you for this extraordinary work! But can have the used on PS cs5?


    • Stephanie

      Yep.  When it says they can be used with Photoshop 7+, that means all Photoshop versions after 8, including the entire CS series.

  • blackyoukai

    can i use these brushes with adobe photoshop elements 6.0? i downloaded the brushes,but i can’t open it or find them anywhere in photoshop, so i wonered what i did wrong. :(

    • blackyoukai

      never mind, already found it on youtube :D, but thanks anyway!

      • Stephanie

        I have tutorials on my site, as well. “Tutorials” in the top menu brings you to an installation tutorial.. or there was a button right next to where you downloaded it that says “How to Install?” ;)

        Glad you found it, though!

  • ai

    Does this work on pixlr? :)

    • Stephanie

      I have no idea. I don’t know what pixlr is. If it supports Photoshop brushes, then yes. :) Otherwise, assuming it’s a graphics program, you would need to download the image pack and make them into pixlr brushes.

  • PeggyNC

    thank you so much for sharing your talent and expertise with us!!

  • chopped up guy

  • Charlene Mitchell

    I just downloaded a bunch of your Fairy brushes. I found your site via Elemental Pixie site. Thank you so much – these brushes are absolutely gorgeous! I’m a very newbie PS Elements user so I look forward to figuring out how to use these and playing with them! Thanks again!
