To use the draw feature on your Cricut is really easy. The best way to accomplish a great look is to search draw in Cricut Design Space. On the right-hand side of the image will show you whether you have your image selected as cut, print or draw. Be sure that when you’re drawing that you have the pen tool selected. It will automatically change the image to show you what it will look like drawn. Learn how to draw using your Cricut Explore or Cricut Maker and create this modern mountain art. #CricurMade #Derwent #Xyron #CricutIf you have multiple layers and it is not an original drawing image then you will have some overlap in your image that will be extremely noticeable. Learn how to draw using your Cricut Explore or Cricut Maker and create this modern mountain art. #CricurMade #Derwent #Xyron #CricutWhen you have your image selected as draw and sized to fit your sketchbook, load the paper onto your mat. I chose the light grip mat and I tore two individual sheets from the sketchbook. I was able to place both images on the same mat and spaced the drawings out.

To do this, select Make It in Design Space. Select that you want to make two of the same project and it will auto-populate onto your mat preview. Rotate your images to fit on the measurements of your actual mat like the example below.Select continue and load your Cricut Fine Point Pen into clamp A. Release the clamp on side A and slide your pen all the way down until you feel it click. Position the pen so that the arrow is facing towards you and pointing down on the pen. Load your mat and select Go.

With the pens, you can select that the image can be drawn 2X as fast. If your image has a lot of detail don’t select this option. It’s just a matter of saving a minute or two so it’s not necessary to remember this step.

After you have drawn with your Cricut, unload the mat and remove the sketchbook paper off of the mat. Be sure to cap your pens when they are not in use. Learn how to draw using your Cricut Explore or Cricut Maker and create this modern mountain art. #CricurMade #Derwent #Xyron #CricutNow that your image has been drawn with the Cricut fine point pen, use your Derwent Colouring Pencils and color in some of the images. Use one of the drawn images and leave the other to the side for now. Just fill it in however you want, no need to be perfect.

Run it through your Xyron Creative Station, rub and then peel away the clear top-sheet away. Cut the images on the drawing lines and now you will have stickers that will have adhesive on all edges of the cut images. You don’t have to keep all the pieces but just place them wherever you want on your plain drawn image.Learn how to draw using your Cricut Explore or Cricut Maker and create this modern mountain art. #CricurMade #Derwent #Xyron #CricutIf you notice on the first image that I pulled through the Creative Station that I didn’t use all the pieces that I colored. I took the time to decide on what images I wanted to place back on the other drawn image. Learn how to draw using your Cricut Explore or Cricut Maker and create this modern mountain art. #CricurMade #Derwent #Xyron #CricutI really enjoyed using these Derwent Colouring Pencils and I can’t wait to put them to use again for all my scrapbooking and cardmaking.
