Adding multiple draw lines to a design can add character and personality. This technique is also helpful when you want to create your own coloring pages with your Cricut.

Today we will talk about:

Using one design to add extra details

You can add a little extra style to your Cricut projects by adding drawing accents. You can use one design to create multiple drawing lines as well. Add extra color and extra art designs by re-purposing the say design. If you're working with an image that isn't designated as a drawing project. I have a tutorial to help you if you need to learn how to convert a cut file to draw with your Cricut.

In this example, I've taken one image file from Cricut Design Space, ungrouped and un-attached the layers and then converted pieces to draw.

I took the center fancy cut flower and used Contour to hide all but the outside line. This line is a little different than the outer-most cut line of the design. So, we can use both lines to create some nice line contrasts. Below, I'm using the middle line and overlapping with duplicates of the same line in another color. This adds an extra dimension of line art detail to accent your projects.

When you add duplicate lines, skew or rotate them a bit so the additional lines add that extra interest to the art.

Now that you know how to add extra line art. Think of ways you can add in multi-line art to your projects. Think of different ways to create different designs. I took this single flower design and created 4 variations. Use different pen colors and pen tip shapes to create even more looks.

  1. These ideas are great. I want to draw on top of a picture I have already designed. How can I control what color pen the Cricut chooses to draw with first?

    • I haven’t quite nailed down the order of what is drawn when yet. My theory is, whatever layer is on top, draws last. But I need to test it. Thank you for your note!
