Today is a day off from school and we really need it! My oldest is almost over his pneumonia and I'm hoping this last day at home will get him well enough to go back to school. It's been a tough week for everyone!
For today's tutorial, I'm going to go over the method I used to create the flowers in the Scandinavian inspired Santa paper dolls. I've been using this method since Illustrator CS4 and currently use it in Illustrator CC. Basically, it should work in most versions of Illustrator.
Most of this takes place in the stroke palette so make sure you have that handy.
I like to keep a working copy and a final copy. In this case, duplicate the circle and we'll work with the duplicate.
Up next, I'll have another paper doll on Friday!
