I've been trying to create repeating watercolor backgrounds in Photoshop Elements for a while, with little success. I love the Sketchbook app, and that round brush is helping blend my edges in so much better than anything I've found in Photoshop Elements. Thanks so much for introducing me to this app I'd never heard of and never would have thought to try!

Perfect for people without a lot of design experience -- to be able to create!
Such a simple solution - perfect for me. I am familiar with Illustrator and Photoshop - but this makes it so fast & easy to create backgrounds!
Beginner class in Sketchpad - very basic, which is what I needed - got a few easy to learn tips that made it easy to remember so I can now move on to something more complicated.
So easy and the results so much like real watercolor. I can't wait to add my text for a FB post!
