Is it possible to make multiple cuts from the same colored background on the same layer? clear as mud????
I am trying to make a background similar to camo. It will have five shades of the same color. What I would like to do is cut the shapes from one color and then move on to a different layer/color.
I am using the "blob" shape. Do you have a better method?

I would probably use the custom shape tool instead.
Click U, then at the top in the options bar click on the baloon shape
to the right it will say shape- click on the down arrow, then click on the right arrow and choose shapes- blob is in there :)
I would have one color for your bottom layer and then add each blob on it's own layer
not sure how to make camo, but I think if you distort the shapes you'll get it to look good with a little trial and error. :D

Susan, there is a free action that makes camo. For the life of me, the name of the site is escaping me. If you do a google search, you should find it. Darn it, now I'm gonna go look!
