Hey friends! I just love all the fun free designs that Silhouette offers, don’t you? I just want to download and use them all!

Last week’s awesome free design was a sunny ‘You are My Sunshine’ printable. Now, you could very easily just print this off and have a fantastic piece of art to hang on the wall! I wanted to add a little bit of extra flair, so I added a few extra steps to make this piece even more special 🙂

 

Step 1

Open up the sunshine design in your Silhouette Studio® software, and select the image. Select the ‘object’ tab from the menu and click ‘ungroup.’

Step 2

I like a cleaner background, so I deleted the grayish background color by selecting the box and hitting ‘delete’. I then printed the image onto regular cardstock. Feel free to use whatever paper works best for you!

Step 3

Back in the Silhouette Studio®, I added a couple of borders for some extra flair and fun.

Step 4

I wanted to add some shimmer and shine, so I decided to use my Sketch pens to do some tracing! Now that the printable is separated into individual elements, in the cut menu you can select one design piece at a time. Insert a sketch pen in the color of your choice, and hit ‘Send to Silhouette’!

I decided to offset my words and the sun so when the pens sketched over the designs it would provide a sort of 3d effect. Achieve this by slightly moving the text over to the side and down before hitting ‘Send to Silhouette’!

Step 5

To make the color pop even more, I took my Silhouette Sketch Pen and and colored in the border around my printable with some fun lines.

After that it’s time to frame and hang. Et voila! A pretty sunny printable to brighten your day 🙂
