Hi there! I work in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop every single day, and I get such a thrill out of learning something new in my toolbox that I just have to share it. Today, that something ‘new’ isn’t really new at all- but it was all new to me! Creating a pattern brush for ‘filigree’ border.  You see this sort of edging on certificates, badges and money or vintage-looking coupons.

I have a project that I am working on, to refresh a client’s logo. Their existing logo has a lovely filigree border that I didn’t want to lose in the redesign.  Watch the tutorial video to see how it’s done!
