Cutting a Photo
So I have seen multiple people using their Explore to cut JPGs and other photo types. I was referred to stencilgram.com, a website that will turn any photo into a stencil AND let you save it as a SVG! Brilliant! I had to try it out so I picked a random photo and uploaded it onto the website. Easy as pie. It allows you to adjust the "stencil" so you can get it just as you would like it. Then after saving it as an SVG I uploaded it into Design Space. I simply cut it out of vinyl and after some weeding adhered it to a canvas. Fun little tip, I I put a border around mine so it made the weeding WAY easy. All those white areas along the edge peeled off when I pulled off the border. The only weeding I had to do was in the middle. For my next one I plan on painting the canvas to do a more layered effect. I just love this machine. It seems like the possibilities are endless with it!
