  • Inkscape & Segmentation Patterns

    Inkscape is a powerful vector graphics program that is freely available as open source software here. However, it can be rather daunting at first sight.

    Whilst I am by no means an expert, I have been using Inkscape for a little while and thought perhaps scrollers who would like to know more about it might find some guidance notes useful. So I've produced some notes and attached them to this post as a pdf file. Although they focus on a technique to create a segmentation pattern, I suspect that scrollers who cut other styles such as shadow portraits will also find the notes useful.

    Nice job Gill, I have been experimenting trying to do this for a little while and low and behold you come up with a tutorial. Very nicely done. This will come in handy.

      Once again, thanks for your efforts on that Gill - that's very useful.

      One thing I want to know - where's the pic of YOU at the seventies night?

              He’s the one with the patience. At least i don’t ricochet off the walls as much as I used to! We certainly proved opposites attract. How dull life would be if we were the same.

              Glad to hear he is getting back on track. After seeing what my wife went through, after her fall, I wouldn't wish rehab or PT on anyone.

              It will sit on the coffee table for a couple of weeks/months - Until I finish the next one. Then it get relegated to the collection to await the next craft show. Or it may go to the art gallery for a few months.
