Chapter 10. Working with Brushes and Scr... > Applying a Scatter brush to paths

Applying a Scatter brush to paths

Now you’ll use the Fall Leaf brush with its adjusted settings to draw leaves on the tree in the artwork. First you’ll select and lock the tree. Locking an object prevents it from being altered while you work on other objects in the artwork.

1.
Use the Selection tool () to drag a marquee around all parts of the tree to select them.

2.
Choose Object > Lock > Selection.

The bounding box around the tree disappears, and the tree is locked.

3.
Select the Fall Leaf Scatter brush.

4.
Use the Paintbrush tool () to draw strokes with the Fall Leaf brush above the tree branches, using the guides to help place your paths. Remember that if you want to edit paths as you draw, you can use the Keep Selected option for the Paintbrush tool or select paths with the Selection tool.
