THese SHAPES of the BASIC FONT are helpful in making skewable WORD ART within the SBM program using your matching papers from Paper Scraps button. We can do colored letters but nothing with texture or patterns. Now we have a little edge on that. If you don't have a way of making these kind of letters in another program..You can Make YOUR own LETTER SHAPES or WORD by using a BLANK white background page. SET background color to BLACK. Type a FONT in WHITE letters onto center of 8x8 to 4x4 size..Make word or letters large to fit page area with few inches for border sides. THEN..PUBLISH >IMAGES> MED size. SEND to SHAPES folder. Then erase or delete your page and start making your scrappage. WHen you are READY to use your WORD SHAPE..simply select your paper scrap and CUSTOM SHAPE..Choose your jpg image in your SHAPES folder and WHALA!! You have that word ready to use..Pull, stretch, tug, etc..WORD ART in SBM. Have a GO at it and if you have any problems let me know!! Enjoy!!!
