Welcome to the wonderful world of crafting in Silhouette Studio! In today's post, we are going to go over some of the basic elements needed for designing.
The 3 big designing concepts that must be mastered are grouping, welding, and making compound paths. If you are anything like me when I started, I really struggled with these heavy hitters.
Mainly I could not figure out the differences between them all and when to use them. I poured over the help manual and just didn't get anywhere.
Well, I'm hoping to save you a lot of turmoil by putting these concepts into simple and easy terms so you can walk away feeling confident and ready to start designing!
I'm using the Hustle 24/7 SVG design to show you the difference between the different functions.
Group- these objects are paperclipped or rubberbanded together
Weld-mostly used with words to make one continuous word, think about cursive writing. Merging letters together.
Compound Path-making a cut out of one shape from another shape
