Project Details and Instructions

This uses Corel Painter's Growth feature, as described in a tutorial by Karen. Then I put things together in Inkscape, keeping it simple. The little globe is a piece of Corel clipart.

I made the shapes in Corel Painter, and imported the resulting jpg file to Inkscape, then imported the clip art, did the lettering and that was complete.

Tips and Tricks

  • Try using Inkscape - all drawing programs are different but Inkscape (free!) has some handy features.

What else would you like to share about the project?

Easy and fun to do! The decorative "growth" shapes are really fun to create.
