Beki's Top Tip
Did you know you can use the dimensions tool to easily take measurements of objects in your job? This tool allows you to add a variety of dimensioning annotations to your vector drawing. Including length, height, width, angle or the radius or diameter of an arc. Better still you can edit the settings for the dimensions e.g. font, height etc. as well as using custom text.

Michael Tyler's Lakeside Bear Clock | Free Project
I got the idea for this project when casually browsing through the “stock” clipart models included with the Vectric Aspire software. When I spotted the Standing Bear and Leaping Bass model, I thought these two models would be nice to incorporate into a “forested lake scene” and decided to make the scene as a clock!
