Used Hershey text extension on Inkscape to score Douglas Malloch’s ‘Good Timber’ poem onto the mat board around the watercolor I whipped up today for my therapist.
Most satisfying thing: watching the glowforge write in cursive.
Dissatisfying: seeing my inexperience with technology (ok. And impatience) show through in the spacing of the text.
I really love this. I’m tickled that you “whipped up” a watercolor, and that you were able to use this tool to personalize your artwork even further. Also, cool poem
Haha! It’s amazing how toddler naptime-limits can motivate creative progression.
It’s a wonderful project! You might be pushing me to download Inkscape just so I can use that extension. Illustrator doesn’t do nearly as well with those single line fonts.
What a nice project … Looks great!
The text idea is really good, but the water color is great!
I tried uploading the video of Glowdi Laforge writing in cursive but the file was too large. That would have convinced you for sure.
Does that work? I had to do the time lapse instead of the video. Not as exciting.
Oh yeah. That is really cool!
Wow, your Glowforge has sweet handwriting!
The watercolor is great! I’m finding the GF abets procrastination 'cause you know you can make something on short notice. . .
That text is a gorgeous idea on the frame.
Beautiful Watercolor and I’m starting to incorporate Hershey text into my stuff. It’s very cool.
