Flourish made with Inkscape
I have been interested in graphic design, but not sure how to get started besides enrolling in a college course, which I may do, if I can find some spare time.
I used a youtube video to help guide me on the process, but didn't copy his design (which was VERY beautiful). Here is a link to the youtube video. He makes it look so easy to make these swirly lines. I struggled a bit, but stuck with it until I got the look I wanted. I started the file last night and finished up this morning since I woke up extra early. :-/
Once I created my flourish I saved it as a .png file, opened it in Silhouette Studio, traced it and cut it. Sounds simple huh? ha! I had to go back to the original Inkscape file and make the lines thicker so I could get the flouish off the mat without ripping it.
Now I need to add it to my Silhouette library so I can use it in the future...I think this would look great on a layout.
