I’m a little late in posting this but it wasn’t due to actually *being* late.  I had a dentist appointment today.. then afterward a guy rear-ended us.. and the baby is cutting 15 molars at once.. so let’s just say it has been a “fun” day.  The neat thing is while I was thinking about the tutorial today (which I couldn’t record yesterday due to the tree guys making a LOT of noise) an idea hit me!  What if I made stitching brushes out of CU stitching sets I already owned… and what if I added that realistic thread texture as a brush too?  What would happen?  EPICNESS IS WHAT HAPPENS!


Just watch!  I think you are going to LOVE this tutorial!

There needs to be some tweaking of the texture brush.  To achieve different effects I changed the color and blending modes.  For example in the example above the texture brush is duplicated 3 times.  Top is Overlay in Black, Middle is hard Light in White, Bottom is Overlay in Black and then the base is the solid color.  Play around with your layer blending modes and have a good time!
