I'm sure that sounds strange.
Anyway, I was making another scrapbook set and I didn't want to use other people's paperclips, I wanted to make my own. There are too many reasons to go into.
So I started looking for a Preset Shape that looked like a paperclip. Preset shapes are things that you can use to make a circle or whatever but you can put it in your colors or patterns right from the start.
There were none.
So I had to make my own.
So I did. I made a perfect paperclip. But I had saved it in the wrong format. :-( So I couldn't save it as a preset shape.
Then I had to read HOW TO MAKE CUSTOM PRESET SHAPES online. Found out that I had to use Vector shapes, not Raster shapes. I hate vector shapes, LOL.
But anyway, I first made the paperclip with 3000 vector lines. I saved it as a preset.
Then I loaded it and used it.
OMG! I hadn't realized that the preset shape tool would show every line I made. It was ugly, LOL. I mean, in the end it still looked like a paperclip (or as close as I could get...) but I was not satisfied with all the different vector layers.
Then I got the bright idea to make a paperclip out of letters.
Did you know a paperclip is basically U, J, and I? Well it is.
So I made the paperclip out of those shapes. I got it as smooth as I could.
The problem with vector layers is that you can't delete/erase just a part of it. If you try, it deletes the whole vector. That's why I hate vector layers.
Raster layers you can delete a pixel or 99% of the thing. It's more freedom.
But anyway, I got as close to a paperclip as I could. When I use it, I will turn it into a raster layer and smooth it out. But this is close enough for government work!
I didn't even realize I've been doing this shit for 3 hours, LOL.
