- Using Custom Shapes
- Using the Line Tool
- Freehand Drawing.
I'm going to walk through the first two with you today.
Arrow shapes can be drawn using the custom shapes tools. There are two basic arrow shapes in Craft Artist (including the free cutdown version).
- Double Arrow
- Rectangle with a chevron head and tail.
- Rectangle with a heart head.
- Corner added to a single arrow.
- Wave added to a single arrow.
Craft Artist comes with lots of fun options for line styles and these can be mix and matched to create straight, curved or wavy arrows for your scrapbooking pages. These cannot be used to crop papers but can be made in any colour you like. For thick line arrows you can still add special effects like shadows etc.
- In the Colour Box Set the colour of your line.
- Goto the Line Styles Box
- Set the width of your line to something simple to start with like 5.0 pt.
- Draw a line using the Pencil Tool.
- If you hold down the shift key as you draw then it will make a straight line.
- Add an arrow head to the front of the line using the drop down box.
- Similarly you can add a tail or second arrow head to the other end.
- The line style itself can also be changed to dotted or double etc. Experiment with the settings and see what you like.
Blessings to you all from Angela
