Draw a Heart in Silhouette Studio
starting with just ONE simple shape.
Hello again! January is flying by and I’m ready for some Valentine crafts hopefully BEFORE February gets here. Today I wanted to share how quick and how easy it is to draw a simple heart shape in your Silhouette Studio program.
I’ve had a Silhouette Cameo 2 for a number of years now and every Valentines Day I look for a heart shape either in my studio library, or in the Silhouette store.
It wasn’t until recently that I discovered a quick and easy way to draw my own hearts starting with one simple shape, and basically one simple tool.
Now I’ve read or watched tutorials about how to draw a heart shape but I’ve always felt that the process certainly had to be easier.
This one simple trick is going to change your world when it comes to creating
heart shapes in Silhouette Studio.
The only shape that I use is the ellipse. As for tools, I use some very quick and easy point editing.
Now maybe you’ll say, “But Connie, this is nothing new!” However, I’ve created a Youtube video about my process and I wanted to share it with you. This is very likely different than what you’ve tried before.
Silhouette Studio is a powerful program, but it has taken me a long time to figure out just how powerful it really is.
New to YouTube
I’m going to share my YouTube video with you. For someone who hates to speak in front of any kind of audience, this is a HUGE step for me. I agonized about even publishing it but I finally did it-after about 6 rehearsals.
To be honest, the entire video isn’t even 7 minutes long, and I feel like I stumbled MORE than my share. There are lots of things that I should have done differently. However, I’ve watched YouTube for years and have noticed that many people start out with humble beginnings. I’m in good company!
So bear with me! I’m sure you’ll be kind and I’m sure I’ll appreciate it. Feel free to give me a thumbs up, not on my video quality, but because this process will change how you design in Silhouette Studio. So without further ado, here’s the video!
Thanks for stopping by today and we’ll see you next time.
