Christine's Numerical Brush Starter Kit

Christine Farrelly’s Lace Number Brush Starter Kit Four XAR files with complete alphabets which can be used to create your own lace brushes. All one needs to do is open the file select all and from the font gallery double click a font to see what the shapes will look like in that font. The font I have used is Arial as this should be installed on most PC's. I have created the basic 4 character shapes for one file. Then reversed the horizontal position on the next. The last 2 are the previous versions with all characters cloned and rotated 90 degrees.

As you will see even Arial can come up with some interesting shapes! Click here to download the Zipped set (36K)

Christine Farrelly's Star Brushes 3

But wait, there’s more! Christine Farrelly has been a very busy person. She has also created a nifty set of repeating patterns which can be repeated and placed inside a shape using Xara’s Apply Clip View feature (Arrange menu) or converted to bitmaps and applied as a bitmap fill via the Bitmap Gallery. You can add color to the grayscale images by placing any kind of fill over the tile and then applying transparency.
