(Virtual) Places I love-Deviant Art

Are you familiar with Deviant Art?  It has amazing resources for digital scrapbookers.  And it's a pretty cool site to just randomly look around for inspiration or just entertainment.  It's a social network for artists to exhibit, promote and share their art.  That's right share.  Just make sure you read the terms of use before downloading and using as everyone's varies.  But there is a lot of stuff that you can download and use on your personal scrapbooking pages.  For example type "PS brushes" into the search box and over 11,000 brush sets come up.  You can also search for grunge brushes or swirl brushes or anything your layout desires. You can also find old worn and torn papers and tons of textures as well as hand-drawn art and just about everything else.  Before using on any layouts that you plan on printing, make sure you check the resolution and/or pixel size as a lot of stuff isn't suitable for printing out at 12" x 12"!  I went browsing through Deviant Art over the weekend and found the following cools things (among many):

These foilage brushes by Obsidian Dawn:

I put these three things together with one photo, a few pieces of paper and one action and came up with this layout:
Papers from Perfect in Every Way by Pixels by Jen
Crumpled paper texture from Cumpled Paper by Valkiria
