Confession: In high school I took ceramics and social dance for my art credit.
can’t draw. Like, not at all. I think I’m too uptight or something. I also can’t paint. My grandma tried to teach my brother and I to oil paint one summer. It didn’t end well. I wonder if my mom still has my floating peach painting somewhere…
You know that you can draw with your Silhouette, right? I made some art for above my headboard a couple of years ago:
(You can read all the details here.)
One of the features of the Silhouette Studio® Designer Edition software is the ability to change pretty much ANY of the designs into a sketch.
Macy loves old cars (specifically ‘55 Bel Airs). Her bedroom makeover (which I have big plans to finish before the end of April) was inspired by some classic car prints. I found a car design in the Silhouette Online Store:
I ungrouped the design:
I stacked the design pieces on top of each other in the software, like you would if you were assembling the design out of paper:
And then I grouped them back together so I could resize/flip/whatever without undoing all my hard work:
Then choose the sketch menu and whichever sketch option you like:
I’m a fan of the “continuous” option myself.
I started out with a silver pen, because I thought it looked like a pencil sketch, but the pen died on me.
I decided to try a couple of different glitter pens instead.
And just a friendly reminder about the current Silhouette promotion:
Silhouette CAMEO™ + Silhouette Studio® Designer Edition = $269.99
That’s a savings of almost $80!!!
Go here to add the bundle to your cart and, as always, use code “CRAP” to take advantage of the savings.
If you already have a CAMEO and just want to pick up the software, it’s 50% off using code “CRAP” as well.
The promo runs through the 28th.
See you soon!
