This class will be great if you need some practice with your pen and tablet, doing some freehand work. If you don’t have a pen and tablet – you do not have to have one – in the video I use my mouse and create the exact same effects.
This class is simply awesome! It has so many ideas for one picture, your digitizing brain will be full of ideas once you have finished the class! This class is a bit different from the other classes: we are working with one photograph and creating more than 11 different designs! Learn how to take a photograph that you have and create some simple designs from the one picture. You don’t need clip art to digitize – when you use your own picture, you have no copyright issues or use issues – the picture is yours so you can create what you want! The picture that we use is of a flower – with lots of details. We do a simple flower, a flower with more details, applique in a few different ways using different fabrics and different amounts of detail, and then we do the flower again, this time with lots of detail work. In the course of the class, we use many different tools and effects to create the 11 different designs. This is a class that you can apply for use with just about any photograph that you have, so the possibilities are absolutely endless.
I think everyone will enjoy this class, no matter level digitizing you are. I can’t wait to see everyone’s homework for this one! Think outside the box embroidery at its best!
