Applications for the free trial code have now closed but if you got your code, you still have access to use the software and play to your heart’s content until 31st October……don’t waste a minute of creative embroidery time!!
Did you know that the Janome Canada Education team are offering wonderful hands-on Artistic Digitizer classes through participating Janome Canada dealers at this time. It is a 3 part series of 2 hours per class = 6 hours and includes a set of notes for each part. These are paid classes (which must be booked through applicable dealers.) As we are into part 2 already, you may wish to play “catch up” or wait until the next time we offer these classes. If you are interested in attending these excellent classes to further your Artistic Digitizer learning, please send a comment in the box below and we will send you information about where you may book to attend these classes.
Today we have another creative possibility using Artistic Digitizer software. Halloween is just around the corner so here is a fun design to try with your trial offer of Artistic Digitizer.
It is possible to insert a clipart image and easily convert it into embroidery stitches. We offer this step by step:
New > Tools > Clip Art Library > Insert a clip art > Fruits09 > Insert > Slide/Drop. It is that easy; the pumpkin is automatically turned into embroidery stitches!!
Notice there are some spots in the green stitching (shown in the red circle)…….. we need to fix this to make the pumpkin image perfect.
Select Edit Nodes
Click on the red square nodal point – Stretch this point to join the base of the pumpkin.
Select the stalks and choose a colour in the colour option box.
Note: The order of the stitch out in the Sequence menu – Move the sequence of the brown stalk to last: Select sequence 6 > Right click the section > Order.
The usual color of the pumpkin is, of course, bright orange, but there are also yellows, reds, whites, and even blue, green and grey! Here I chose the thread color Janome 273 (Honey Dew)
Select the 1-2-3-4-5 sequences in the Sequence menu > Click on the #273-colored pencil; A real pumpkin!
This little exercise shows the simplicity of the software, but… there are so many other techniques that we will never run out of projects to create!!!
