I've created a video tutorial showing how to create a simple holly wreath in Inkscape which could then be cut in SCAL. I don't claim to be an expert, but hopefully it will be useful for some! Of course, the techniques I use to create the wreath could just as easily be used to draw anything you like :)

Dan thank you so much for the video. I got a lot out of it. Although I don't use inkscape.
What I would like to ask you is: Do you use a grapic's tabley.

That is an awesome video! Newbies as well as more 'seasoned' users of Inkscape will learn a lot.

I particularly benefited from the Union tool under Path. I have used it before but didn't realize it would join two selections so easily. I have always been breaking paths and deleting nodes to combine two pics. Boy, watch me now!! :lol:

If you use Path>Break Apart to get separate parts for a shape and then decide you need to use the union to make two shapes one, you will have to select the two shapes, Path>Combine and then move them together to union. The separate parts will not union until they have been combined.

Thanks for the kind comments everyone! :)

Tam, I do have a graphics tablet, but to my eternal shame it has been unplugged from my computer for 4 or 5 years now! LOL I guess that makes me a mouseketeer! :D
