Chalkboard: 15 High Resolution Photoshop Brushes

I don’t know about you guys but when I was in elementary school I used to volunteer to wash the chalkboard. I can’t remember exactly why I used to do this. Was I sucking up to the teacher? Or did I just like leaving class for a bit to find a sponge and bucket? Either way, this set of brushes brought back some very old memories. I actually had a lot of fun creating this set of 12 High Resolution Chalkboard Brushes for Photoshop. After a bit of experimentation I found these brushes to be incredibly useful. Not only are they great for creating a chalkboard effect in Photoshop but they are also great for adding texture to your design elements. This brush set really is amazing! Enjoy!
