This page was created is Serif's Craft artist. It was made for a challenge on Daisy Trail, this challenge is run by Sue Mclean from Annapolis USA. Sue goes under the name of "mcleansue" on the daisy trail site, she  has started a group called "Getting better all the time" or GBAT. Anyone like like me who has a lot to learn in Serif's craft artist and just what it can do are more than welcome to join in. Sue sets the challenge and also supplies us with a video on the how to do. This challenge is all about brushes, making your own, making frames from brushes and word art brushes. On my page i have created four brushes, the outer frame was a dragon and used in stretch mode, then there is a word art brush used in simple mode, the paw print is in simple mode and the inner frame is a bamboo brush. The word art brushes are excellent for card makers who would like the outer frame in some sort of text.
