Shortcut Sunday


We are back for another quick shortcut. This one is about brushes. Do you use brushes? I love using different brushes. I do not like taking the time to change the size of the brush. That is easily resolved with a quick keyboard shortcut.


I have a super cute layout I was working on. I used ScrapDZines new kit, Programmed to Play. I wanted to add some emphasis behind the photo.




I brought up the Brush tool, by pressing B on the keyboard. (Do you now see the Brush tool selected?)

I loaded a new brush set, Northern Stars Design Acrylic Brushes 1 and 2.


After I selected the brush I wanted, I saw it was too big. By pressing the [ key, on the keyboard, I was able to make my brush smaller.


If I wanted to increase the size of the brush, I would press the ] key.


Using these two keys, I was quickly able to size the brushes and add a quick splash of color to the background.
