Tutorial – Make a Digi Scene

Tutorial – Make a Digi Scene

Hey Oddlets, Melissa here today to show you how you can ‘create a scene’ using your digi images.  I am using the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition, but you will find that the steps will be similar in other software as well.  

My first photo is a pic of the complete screen in Silhouette Designer software.  I wanted you to see what the whole screen area looks like as I will crop the screen pics in additional photos.

Once you have a new page open, head into your digi files and choose the images you want to work with.  Be sure to choose the .png images so the backgrounds are clear.  When you see a white background with the image, merging won’t work.

I like to work in threes, so I am going to choose three Some Odd Girl images that will work together.  Once I have opened my first image I am going to choose MERGE for each additional character I want. This will open and place each character on the same page, which eliminates cutting and pasting.

My digi choices are Flower, Forest Friend Fairy, and Giggle Fairy.  I think they will blend well together to create a scene.

Placing the images together is a personal preference and often requires you to drag them around, resize, repeat… until you get them as you want them.

I moved Forest Friend Fairy first but I don’t want her behind the Flower.  To change that I clicked on her, went into Object, Arrange, and clicked ‘bring to front’ to move her in front of the flower.

Next I brought Giggle Fairy down and placed her behind the other two images.  I did a little tweaking, rotated Forest Friend Fairy to re-position her into a straighter position, which allowed me to hide the Flower stem.  Do note that none of these images are altered, it’s all about arrangement and putting images behind or in front of other images.

After I had my placement done I went around all three images and the went to Object, and Group so the three become one image.  This makes sizing for printing easier because I am working with one image, not three.   If you think you will want to print it again remember to save it with a new name using the .png extension.

 All finished, complete with sentiment from the retiring Gwen in Bloom clear stamp set.

 Not so hard, right?  Just a few clicks, and it’s easy to build a scene using digi stamps!
