making the most of your silhouette sketch pens tutorial



 do you remember these Christmas clip art images a shared with you, i drew them on the silhouette then painted them, so today I'm going to show you how i did it
i wanted to use a image of a mason jar i had found so i opened it up on my silhouette to do this go to file and click open
 a box will appear
go to the drop down box where it says files of type and click all files, then a box with all the photos saved on your computer
 select the image you want and it will come on to your screen, you will need to trace it to get cut lines to do this click on the blue button and then click on select trace area and cover the picture you want to trace with the box then click trace
 then click on it and more the image across and you will have the traced image delete the one you uploaded as you are finished with it now
 to create then snow globe i rotated the image then i just used some tree images and snow flakes from the silhouette store.

then i inserted the pen in the blade slot and drew it and then i used water colours to paint it

and thats how you do it
