    A fantastic collection of brushes and textures to add to the Photoshop tool box. I’ve always been a fan of grunge brushes and subtle textures that can help enrich and liven up backgrounds. I think with some experimentation with the brush setting (scattering etc) you could come up with some really interesting effects. I think the natural effect brushes such as the grass textures could be particularly useful. A great range of brushes that I’m sure will come in useful for many future projects.
