New video tutorial following on from the aligning text to a shape, this one is How to turn a frame into a solid shape from which you can cutout text from.
I have made two new videos for Silhouette Studio.
The first is how to make a swirl/spiral and then use that to make a filigree component which can then be used for pattern repeat or adding as an embellishment to card making or any other mixed media project.
The second is how to turn that filigree component and make a repeat pattern then add it to an oval frame.
Where has the year gone. I can’t believe that’s it 2013 already.
I have been busy designing for Silhouette America. If you want to take a look at what I’ve been creating then please click on the link.
I am also thrilled that currently one of my designs is No.1 on the popular designs page. Roman clock with gears n cogs http://www.silhouetteonlinestore.com/php/?page=browse-popular-designs.
The weather is dark and grey ATM and we have been threatened with snow. But no sign of it yet. However, I have managed to sneak in two more tangles called ‘Ruffles’ and ‘Soutache’.
You can get the step by step on how to create these patterns on my tangle pages.
I have been a bit quite lately from blogging but not from creating. I now have been accepted as a contributing Artist for Silhouette America. I create designs that are used on electronic cutting machines for personal or commercial use. So I’ve been busy designing for them, and finally earning some money from all my crafty efforts.
However, I’ve still managed to keep up with my Tangle pattern designing as I find it a welcome change from sitting in front of a computer all day, staring at the screen and becoming bugged eyed.
The new patterns are called ‘Votive’ and ‘U-Bend’. You can find the step by step guides on my tangle patterns pages.
It’s been a while since I have blogged but I have been busy getting to grips with my Silhouette Cameo cutting machine, plus I’ve been distracted with a new i-Pad.
Two things; one I have a new pattern for you called Pozi and the other is that…sooooo excited. I have been accepted as a contributing artist for Silhouette America for designing and selling Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) cutting files for electronic cutting machines. I love dabbling in patterns and digital imagery so now hopefully will earn a bit of pocket money in something that I love doing. I’ll post the link later when they have been put up on their website.
There was a brilliant quote my husband saw the other day saying…
“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
Anyway here’s the pattern. Click on the thumbnail for a step by step guide in how to create the pattern, plus you’ll find oodles more on my Tangle patterns page.
It’s arrived! my new Silhouette Cameo cutting machine. So far I’ve only managed to explore the software design package and haven’t achieved any cutting yet. I probably won’t get around to play with it properly until Monday, as I have family here all weekend and my time will be taken up with them. Typical!
