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.

Creating pyramage sheets in Inkscape
« on: January 08, 2011, 05:02:10 PM »
Last year Laura http://thealliancetrader.blogspot.com/2009/12/photo-cutout-in-inkscape.html showed how a shape could be cut out of an image in Inkscape by changing an image to pattern. I had fun experimenting and found many print and cut projects could be created by using Laura's technique. Below is my personal favourite, creating my own pyramage sheets.

Here are the steps I use to create my own pyramage projects. Experiment with different shapes as so many different looks can be achieved.

Different looks can be achieved by using different shapes, rotating shapes or adding a stroke line to the image/s.

When creating these designs, do not extend the combined shapes beyond the image and do not overlap the shapes used. Examples below show the results.

Here is another idea. In this project I wanted to place emphasis on the butterfly. I traced the contour of the butterfly and then made the smaller sized graduations.

Flowers would look lovely done this way. The possibilities are endless and it is fun to experiment.

Many thanks Carolyn.  I had heard it could be done with Inkscape but have never tried it.  In particular, I love the butterfly idea.  That brings a whole new meaning to pyramage.

I'm mind boggled at so many kool ideas and instructions/videos.  Can you tell me where I can find a video or instructions on how to separate out the image into an individual for doing a pyrimage like the butterfly?  You are SO KOOL!

Hi Alicesue, I don't have a video on this subject yet and I am not sure if anyone else has covered this topic. I will try to make a video next week.

At long last I made the video showing how to create pyramage designs.
There are two videos, the first one is the basic design and the second one shows how to create a pyramage design with rotated images.
If you would like to watch the videos go back to the first post of this topic to find them. Don't forget to post photo's if you create a project.
