I was a little stuck on how to go about making a rainbow in KNK. So got to thinking about the shape of a rainbow.
Really its just some curved rectangles. But how would I go about getting the lines at the bottom to all be the same with out using the ginsu knife, or having to mess mess with nodes and curving the lines. By converting to poly arc.
So I got to thinking about it, and bam, I did it, super easy.
Here is how I did it:
You make a long rectangle using the shape tool
Then, use the Array function ( Layout>Array) Change the Arrow that is Up and Down to 0.00 (This way, they stack touching each other and are all lined up with out moving any thing.
Look for "Total Y" Click it the number of times you want lines. (I choose 6)
So now you should have 6 rectangles all stacked on top of each other.
Next, color each rectangle. I went with ROYGBP (Red,Orange,Yellow,Green,Blue,Purple) See the first picture.
Next, Select the entire colored rectangle
go to Transform>Transformation and look for the last icon on the top left. "Fit to circle clockwise) Click it and your rectangles should now be on an arch.
The, if you look at the arch, you see the circles, there are little boxes you can move, like if you grab the center one, and pull it down, it will make the colors fatter.
Now if you grab the little diamond shape on the side, you can turn it. You can do both sides if you like. Looks like this.
When you have it how you like it, Just click off to the side, and save. Wah La!
Now, im sure, This has been show before, But I just found it myself, so had to show yall. I love when I try some thing new. And there is always a way in KNK to do it. If not, ask Sandy. She will find it. LOL!
And if your wondering why I didn't do a video like my friend Kristal of K Andrew designs. Nope, not going to happen, I dont like my picture take, out there any where, and I dont even use the video chat, LOL Ask Kristal. I put a piece of paper of the camera. LOL!
Hope this is helpful to some of you.
