I have decided that I know how to make line art in photoshop so let’s just do this 🙂


I had basically traced all the photos of the skirts in my books here and then traced over that while adjusting for curve. Let’s just say onion sheet is the best stuff ever 🙂


I just scanned that, and scaled to full size and have so far created paths for all elements except the hem and the curves inside the clouds.


I started with the easy-peasy straight rays of light, this is just using the pen tool on the tips and ends of each ray.


For the wavy rays I wanted to have a more regular and controlled shape so I created one ray in paths.



I started by adding anchor points regularly, shifting them to gently widen and length each curve.



Once I was happy, I stroked the path. My experience with Elsa has suggested the ideal cutting/stitching line is to use the brush on 3pxls



This was then copied and pasted as multiple layers and each one rotated and placed in position. I also erased overlapping lines.


 



The straight rays were merged and the wavy rays were merged to another layer.



So then I started to add the clouds. Each circle was created by using the circle line tool, stroked and copied to different layers and for each layer they were free transformed to shape. And the overlapping sections were also erased.



So now I need to create a star and cloud to repeat for the hem and also add curves to each cloud.


Once finish it will probably be flipped and printed then temporarily basted to the back and machine stitched as I had planned before.
