The designs can be used as brushes and patterns and shapes etc but they can also be used just as images or layers as well as displacement maps or overlays or masks etc so even if the product is listed as a brush or shape, you can often also use the artwork as a layer and use the layer multiple times in the same project to create all kinds of unique and wonderful designs.
