Hi everyone, it is Monday so that means it is time for some Silhouette Cameo project inspiration. For this weeks project, I decided I wanted to create a bright floral piece of decor as we are all needing a little colour at the moment with the weather. I also thought this design might help spring on its way as we are all missing it. This design came as one design cut, however, I had plans to sketch it with my sketch pens in multiple colours. In order to do that, a little point editing was needed to separate different areas, and I am showing you today for those who don’t know how to do this. So, if you’re ready read on to create this Hello Spring decor!
Hello Spring decor Details
Choose a design and place in your design space. Right-click on the design to edit points.
Next, select a nodule where your wish to separate the design and right-click. Choose the option ‘break path’, the nodule should change to a red circle.
Again, right-click on the red circle and select ‘delete point’. This will cause a gap to appear in the cut line. Repeat this at the other point in the design where you wish to separate it.
When both areas are separate from one another, right-click once more to release compound path. In order to cut separately, they cannot be part of the same compound path. You can group each part of the design independently from one another making it easier to move the areas around.
I edited the design so that I continued the banner outline with the leaves/florals separated from this. Once all areas have been separated, I changed to line colour for each area depending on the sketch pen colour I was going to use. This made it easier when I sent the design to ‘sketch’ as I could sketch by line colour. Make sure when you are in the send window, you have the action set to sketch and the tool set to sketch pens.
Once the design was all sketched, I used pencils to colour and shade in the decoration. This hello spring decor will certainly brighten up my hallway even if the weather doesn’t change!!
