enter image description hereHow to make a shape by filling in motifs like the effect of the attached image? I know how to clip a pattern to a shape but this one is different. Thanks.


The only possibility in Photoshop is piece by piece with shape layers.

I think this is made in a vector program.

In Illustrator > Pattern Brush


Once it's done copy/paste on Photoshop as a Smart Object and you can edit it back in Illustrator as many times as you want.

  • How can I fill in a shape like a heart shape (not just the edge of the shape) with this pattern effect? Appreciate your help! – Renae Jun 6 '18 at 20:04
  • @Renae Did you try the search at the top of the page? There are many solutions for that. – user120647 Jun 6 '18 at 20:10
