Next step through the manual was about text. Not just the many different alphabets that come with the digikits but transforming standard text. Again it took a couple of goes to get the hang of it but the manual is very clear and having managed the photo editing it took less time to get the desired results. I particularly liked the tool for smoothing a line. My drawing on a computer is not that wonderful. I draw a raggedy line press a button a couple of times and have exactly what I want.
Converting text from being on a straight line to a curve - easy. I found that I got better results if I put a space between each letter.
As I have a birthday coming up it seemed sense to design a card while I was learning.
Today I brought a needle felting tool so closer to item one on my plan for 2012.
