Star flowers - Linda R
« on: July 06, 2019, 02:48:05 PM »
I started out playing with the Appearance Panel and ended up learning a lot more!  These flowers are all made with a star, even the leaves.  I made the star and changed the 2nd layer to the flower petal shape.  I played from there (trying to create a zinnia type flower) and got the first flower.  Then I played with changing the colors.    Then I selected all the layers that were the petals and selected the star tool.  I went to the top and changed the number of points and you get all kinds of neat results.  I think my favorite is the bottom left one.  I could not change the leaf layer tho because I had converted it to curves.   I had not tried this before so I learned something new today!

Oh I agree Linda....these are all so stunning!!  I particularly like the top left one....looks like a dahlia or mum to me, and I agree with you about the lower left one too.  But honestly they are all so blooming good I love the lot!  Nice going!  I've been drawing pigeons today...or at least trying too.  I saw some in the park yesterday and were amused by their antics so I came home and googled pigeon cartoons and got some ideas.  It's kept me busy anyway.   :crazy:
