Exploring on your own

Practice applying brushes to paths you create with drawing tools (just as you applied the Clouds and Sun Pattern brush to a path drawn with the Rectangle tool in the final section of the lesson).

1.
Choose File > New, to create a document for practice.

2.
In the Brushes palette menu, choose Open Brush library, and choose Decorative_Scatter.

3.
Use the drawing tools (the Pen or Pencil tool, and any of the basic shapes tools) to draw objects. Use the default fill and stroke colors when you draw.

4.
With one of the objects selected, click a brush in the Decorative Scatter palette to apply the brush to the object’s path.

As you select a Scatter brush, it is automatically added to the Brushes palette.

5.
Repeat step 4 for each object you drew.

6.
Double-click on a used Scatter brush listed in the Brushes palette to display the Scatter Brush Options dialog box for one of the brushes you used in step 4, and change the color, size, or other features of the brush. After you close the dialog box, click Apply To Strokes to apply your changes to the brush in the artwork.
