Enjoy this FUN Free Snowflake Bokeh Brush – a little Christmas Gift for you.
We wish you a blessed Christmas. Enjoy time with your family and make sure to document the memories, and also to be a part of them.
We have a little goodie for you at the bottom of this post – a few fun brushes for Photoshop and Elements.
Using the fantastic tutorial on Creating Shaped Bokeh, I took things a step further and purchased a “snowflake” shaped paper punch in order to achieve a perfect snowflake shape. Then I created a snowflake shaped attachment, placed it on my 75-300 mm lens and photographed Christmas lights. Here are a few of the results.
Not only were these fun to make, they are great to reuse on other images. I made them into brushes and wanted to share them with MCP Actions fans. I converted them to brushes for Photoshop and Elements – they can be stamped on your images at whatever opacity you like.
Here’s an example of them in use:

There are three different snowflake brushes in the set. Two of them have a scattered appearance and the third is a single snowflake which is great to help balance things out.
To use brushes simply install them in Photoshop or Elements and then on new layers apply the brush at the opacity and location desired.
For an added “scattered” appearance you can go into the brush settings and adjust the brush tip appearance by playing with the “shape dynamics” and “scattering” option.
