The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project opened its first official forum on its website this month (August 2019). https://inkscape.org/forums/ In an effort to combine all the different forums into one, this forum will no longer be accepting new members or new messages. However, it will remain open for a little while, for existing members, to have access to their contents, if they need them.

Any potential new members should register on the new forum, and post their message there. There is a special board for questions about using Inkscape for cutting machines (of all kinds). (https://inkscape.org/forums/cutplot/)

If you have any questions or comments (and you're an existing member) you can post them here.

Although I've been planning to put this forum in read-only mode, at the time of this transition, unfortunately, my personal circumstances have changed, and I won't be able to host this forum much longer. I'm not sure about the time frame. It could be as soon as the end of 2019, or as long as a year from now. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

"I Love Autumn"
« on: September 21, 2010, 09:20:25 AM »
Here is some text I made for a Fall spread.  I included the background mat but ended up liking it without it for my page. I used for Robo Master software for the print and cut.

Thank you, Angel and Suzan.  I can't remember which font I started with... it may have been a Linux font.  It really doesn't matter.  Whatever it is, I started by simplifying it.  I then duplicated the font and changed that one to white.  Next, I inset it a bit, blurred it, and played with the opacity until I got the look I wanted.  For the highlights, I started with white eclipses which I turned to paths.  I played with them to make different shapes for where I wanted to make it look like the light is reflecting.  The last thing I did was make another duplicate of the background and outset it just a little bit.  I used that to clip the entire set so that the edges are cleaned up a bit.

It is kind of a lot of work for a font.... but I wanted it to look like it was paint or gel.... or something like that.  I've made several in different colors (and different text) now for other pages and they really turned out pretty cool.
