I used the offset tool to create inside lines spaced half inch from the originals. I then placed the lettering vectors. They were adjusted as needed (stretched or shrunk) to fit in their respective spaces.
Then it was time to try out a few of the new WOODGRAIN TEXTURES I would do the textures one board at a time - and all different.
I then created a vector shape for the gnome and used the dome tool to create a relief.
When I checked the render I saw it was a little high. This was easy to fix by simple going to the front view and dragging the top control box lower to slim it down. A quick check in the render showed everything was now fine. At this point I duplicated all of the files and then flopped one copy (Except for the lettering) for the back side of the sign.
I built the lettering as separate reliefs and then MERGED HIGHEST
Then I created separate reliefs of the corner icons which were also then merged highest with the corner blocks.
With all of the reliefs finished it was time to combine all of the reliefs to finish this file.
