I love experimenting with my Silhouette Software. So, I was just goofing around and came up with this fun layout. I used my Sketch Pens as well and some star shapes to create a fun and unique title.
Note: If you click on the pictures they will show up larger so that you can see how to do this tutorial in your Silhouette Software:)
I love the look it gave this layout. So, let me share with you what I did! First off I picked out my title. I chose the Cool word for my title.
I wanted my title to be very big, so to do this I used the little squares in the corners or the Scale window to size my title.
Once I had it the size I liked, I moved it to where I wanted it to be on my page.
Next, I picked my patterned paper and color of Sketch Pen I wanted to use and I loaded into my CAMEO. I also replaced my blade for my Sketch Pen and then hit the Cut icon. Next I clicked on the Line Segment Overcut Feature. It's on the little triangles on the upper right hand corner of the screen, below the Cut icon. I picked the triangle that solid. Next I selected the Silhouette Sketch Pen. When I did that it automatically adjusted the settings to sketch . I then clicked on Send to Silhouette to cut. Once it was done sketching out my title, I left it in my CAMEO....DO NOT UNLOAD YOUR MAT!
Next, I inserted my some stars inside the title.
I wanted my stars really small, so I Ungrouped them by right clicking and selecting Ungroup. Now they are separated and I can change them. I used the smallest star and made it even smaller . I used the same process to make the star smaller as I did to make the title larger.
I then placed my star inside of the Cool title.
I wanted stars all over inside my title, so I copied and pasted them just like you would in a Microsoft Word program.
So, now to cut, but before I did I removed the Cool title. Now I am just left with the stars. I didn't want to cut the title out, just the stars.
I repeated the same process I did to sketch the title, but now I put back in my blade. I then set my paper setting. I used the Patterned Paper Medium Weight setting and then pressed the Send to Silhouette button. This is what it looked like when I was done.
I decided I wanted my stars different colors, so I simply adhered different colors of patterned paper to the back of the page.
Some close ups...I love to embellish! I also used the Cursive Cool and Acoustic and Electric Guitar shapes.
Thanks for hanging out with me today and I hope you can find fun ways to play with your Silhouette Software! Until next time and happy cutting!
