Freebie for sketching

October 23, 2012 at 9:13 am 9 comments

I’ve been trying to learn to convert different kinds of images to sketch files (single line/open path) with mostly disappointing results, but here’s a pumpkin border I was able to successfully centerline trace in Illustrator. The scan above shows what it looks like sketched with an orange Sharpie pen. I know you talented folks will make some lovely cards with this one!

Download the .studio file here or the .svg version here. Please remember that this file is only for sketching, and is not suitable for cutting.

The original was a free vector from Vector Graphics Blog so if you like this file leave them some love, too.

    Hi Kay,

    I have a Silhouette question. A friend recently gave me a bag of metal jewelry bezels like the ones below. I have some specialty paper and logos that I want to cut out in the shape of the bezels then paste onto the bezels and pour over with resin. Any idea how I can get my Cameo to cut in the shape of the bezels? I think I can figure out how to add my own logo to the design. Any guidance is appreciated! Thanks Sheila

      Blogs are not a great place to get specific questions answered. I can’t see your images, for instance. I recommend you join the Silhouette Plus Forum where I and dozens of other Silhouette experts routinely address questions like this.

    I fell in love with this the day you posted it. I have a problem. I “thought” I had put it in a file. However, today when I wanted to use it, it was not there. I tried and tried to download it from that day but no such luck. Is there something I am doing wrong? It is the svg I needed.
