    Thank you so much for all this information! I have a question about Strokes. I purchased Glitter Paint Strokes from Forever thinking I could use them as actual strokes. They don’t show up as a choice whenever I try to use them in strokes – only in embellishments. There are lots of other possibilities for strokes in my content, but it seems the choices are very limited when I work from the shape/stroke menu. There must be some stroke secrets that I haven’t figured out yet. Thanks for all you do!!

      I just took a peek at that kit and they cannot be used as strokes in the way Artisan uses them. Those are simply embellishments. You can use embellishments, shapes and photos as patterned strokes (video coming soon.). However, if you use the Glitter Paint strokes in the Strokes portion of the software, it won’t look exactly the way the designer intended. Artisan does have some built in Paint strokes that you can colorize and possibly even fill with glitter paper to achieve the effect you are after.
