It’s very easy to create your own bubbles with your own artwork in Inspirations’ Word Art in Stitches.. Let me show you how.
Open a new file (File, New). Select Import Artwork from the File menu.
Select an artwork file from your computer (navigate to different areas of your hard drive by clicking on the arrow at the top of the box (Look In). You can import the following formats: AI, EPS, EMF, WMF, DXF, PLT, SVF and FCM. I settled for a tomato in the WMF format. Select the file and click on open.
The image appears on the screen. In the Sequence box, you’ll see the different colors that make up this drawing.
Bubble art requires one color, an outline, so I’ll remove all of the interior colors. Select the colors in the Sequence box and hit delete on the keyboard.
Now I have a black tomato, not an outline.
No worries, the software will automatically outline it. Select the tomato and click on the Bubble Text icon.
The outline appears in the Bubble Text window. To fill the bubble, I chose a run stitch outline, typed in Tomato in the Words box, selected a Red color scheme and clicked Apply.
It was that easy!
