Hi friends and faithful readers! I hope it’s not too early to share with you a Halloween idea I have but since I’ve seen Christmas stuff out in the craft stores, I figured it was ok. Besides, at the rate I share posts, you probably won’t see another post from me until Halloween. If you like what I share on WordPress, please be sure to follow me on these other media sites. I’m there much more regularly:
Back to these shirts.
I had the idea for these a while back. Yes, I was thinking about Halloween back in July…tinkered around on how to create them, reached out to my social community, and then figured it all out and…
So, to create these, I started with my Silhouette Cameo, which I finally was able to purchase this year after parting with my Cricut machine. If you see my posts on Facebook, you’ll notice I’ve kinda been obsessed with my Cameo since I’ve gotten it. It is amazing.
I began by drawing a circle on my drawing mat and cutting it in half.
I then chose the font (this one is Impact) and inserted the name, here Arianna. I deselected each letter and expanded them so that each letter slightly overlapped the semi-circle.
Next, I selected everything, Modify, and Subtract All. I then moved the letters away from the semi-circle and that left the “imprint” of the letters within the semi-circle, creating the jack-o-lantern mouth.
To create a t-shirt, I then had to Flip the lettering before cutting it on Heat Transfer Vinyl.
I also used the same idea to create a personalized tumbler.
And for the eyes, I chose a pair from the Silhouette files.
PM me on Facebook if you have any questions about this post. Hope you enjoyed it & be sure to keep an eye out on Facebook for my regular updates!
