Layout Challenge - Paper as Brush - Deadline March 20

There are so many techniques to use on a layout, I have a hard time keeping track of them all and usually just do the same thing every time. This week your technique challenge is to use paper like a brush. Just Jaimee has a tutorial here about this technique, but usually when I do this I don't bother to make the styles like she does. I just clip a paper to the layer with the brush. Can't wait to see what everyone makes!

The Details

  1. Challenge ends after March 20, 2014.
  2. See updated rules here.
  3. You must tag your layouts with these TWO tags "march 2014 layout challenge" "paper brush march 2014 challenge"
  4. See entered layouts here.
  5. Do you have an idea for a layout challenge? Let me know!

Love this! I also love to use brushes on layouts, it really looks sophisticated and definitely will participate on this one smiley

I love this challenge.

Great tips on the tutorial. I will have to give this a try. Thank you Marisa for the share.

That is a great tutorial! Can't wait to try it out. smiley

Can't make and save styles in PSE but can definitely clip papers to brushes, off to look for some super papers. Great challenge.

So this was interesting. I've never clipped my paper to a brush, pretty neat! *the brush is the paint drips*


I've never used paper as a brush before. Such a fun and useful thing to have learned! smiley
Here is my layout with the striped paper used as a brush on the background paper:

I like to use paper clipped to brushes, it makes for an easy quick foundation for clusters and photos.

This challenge was petty great. I love the effect, and had forgotten about these photos of a fun outer-space themed costume party, back when I was dating michael (now my husband) in 2009.

This is really cool! Love the layouts coming through and love learning something new even more!

I hope I'm doing this right. This is my first challenge smiley

Jamie, it looks lovely. You have made an excellent layout, you just need to link it to the gallery with the tags mentioned above. Welcome!

Thank you Jess! I have the image linked to the gallery.

Wonderful pages so far! I have never tried this either I will have to make a layout myself.

What a wonderful idea! I've never thought of doing that before, but it's so simple!

The big gold section in this layout is one of Marisa's gold papers clipped to a brush. And the butterfly brush behind the photos also has a paper clipped to it. The paper strip that says "I love you to the the" isn't a brush, but it does have notebook paper clipped to it.

I made a last minute layout smiley

Great layouts everyone, I will have to check out this tutorial, looks interesting.

Oh. Didn't see that, so you have smiley

Nice job everyone.
