This how to is a little more about tips and tricks in XCS for creating your own clip-art like drawings to use in your designs.


This is a cutting board layout I made for a special Santa Claus Charcuterie Board, but I didn't have any clip art I could use that was free to use/share so I wanted to show you how I use XCS to make my own art work when needed.


The final XCS file is attached here and the sample created art work is included for you to use.

Making the Art Work


The easiest way to show you how I created the simple clip art is in a video walking you through the steps.
