Adobe Air: If you're looking to put a flourish or two on an invitation, business card or web page, Livebrush makes it super simple to create your own designs without purchasing advanced vector-based software.
Using Livebrush is as simple as swirling your mouse about. If you want to get more nuanced you can—the examples on their site show some really detailed image results. For adding just a bit of visual interest to the sidebar of your blog or the edge of your stationary, however, Livebrush is easy to pick up and play with.
You can choose from different styles, fine-tuning your brush behaviour and weight as you go. Livebrush supports layers and you can export the final product as a PNG file. Upgrading to the Pro version for $US10 unlocks additional features like the ability to export vectors. Check out the video below to see Livebrush in action:
