I am continuing to explore the Silhouette and I love that I can create my own designs with its software. I work first in iDraw because it has layers and then transfer into the Silhouette software to create cutting files. Having a drawing program with layers is very helpful when designing a shadow box because it is created in layers.
I put it together with my up cycled bottles from last week for this arrangement.
But of coarse, I also used the same files and created it in white.
I created the details of the Monarch by using layers of paper.
The cutting files for this project are available here and I have uploaded a complete tutorial for assembly over on Ashbee Design Silhouette Projects here.
As always, I am taken with the graphic possibilities of the shapes while crafting. Great for photos!
