My First SVG File!

As a member of SCALhints yahoogroup I spent the first several weeks just simply being amazed at the talent of so many of the members there. I watched as file after file was sent out to the group that the members were designing in Inkscape for members to use in the SCAL program. I finally got up the nerve to try to learn some of the basics of Inkscape and work on my first file. I started out very simple, creating a Gerber daisy which looks simple, but I hate to admit the amount of time I spent in learning and then creating the file.


I posted the file after I had it complete and had made my first flower using it. I really didn't expect much as I hesitantly posted it -- remember, these folks are really good at what they design. Mine is so very elementary compared to theirs. I was once again amazed as member after member requested my file! I just couldn't believe it, but they wanted the file I had been so hesitant about even posting. Very flattered, I simply sent each person making the request the file. After doing that for about 4 days, I decided it would be best to start a blog in order to have a place to post those files. As I continue to create files they will appear here, along with this first svg file of a Gerber Daisy.

If you haven't gotten it yet, I hope you will and leave me a comment letting me know you have. Blessings! Gerbera Daisy SVG

  9. Gloria, one of my favorite flowers! Thanks so much for posting. Like you, I am intimidated by some of the artwork that is being posted on the SCAL forum. I had done quite a bit of designing in Design Studio, but haven't done much of anything in Inkscape that would be of interest to anyone else. There are so many great svg files out there, that I have been using them as bits and pieces in the designs I've been working on. Now I'm on to see what else you've got on your blog. Happy crafting!
