How to Load and Use Scatter Brushes in Photoshop

Placing scatters on our digital scrapbook pages or projects is a great way to add dimension and interest.  Photoshop or Photoshop Elements users can use Brushes to create scatters with a few adjustments to the Brush Settings. But if you dislike adjusting settings and prefer that detailed work be done for you, my new Scatter Brushes 01 could be perfect for you.

This set of brushes has 10 different shapes, with 4 effects assigned to each shape. Examples are shown in the preview packaging pictured below.

In order to use brushes, we need to know how to load them, right? I’ve created a short video for you in case this is new to you or need a refresher. There are also a few tips at the end of the video for how to make your scatter look exactly how you want it to look.


Below is a digital scrapbook layout created by Norma, using one of the Star and one of the Heart Brushes. Her subtle scatters add just the right touch to her page.
