using only ecal and since it is FALL I created this P2C design. I don't have SCAL2 anymore but if I remember correctly all the same features and techniques exist in SCAL2 latest vs.
Every pieces can be found in basic shapes library.
Starting with the acorn, found in BasicShapes Fall I broke it apart and then made a copy of the top part and added a lattice effect.
I have a font called "face off" that must be free since I never pay for fonts and found this cute face.
The leaf is in basic shapes/fall too and using the pen tool I added the veins.
After all done and SAVED, I added a shadow blackout for the P2C Although you could cut almost everthing and paper piece...but I don't paper piece anymore due to shakey arthritic hands.
A few hints. ecal is a memory hog and if you move too fast or do too many things over and add/delete the program will CRASH. Lesson learned...SAVE and SAVE often. After the crash when you immediately reopen ecal will ask if you want to "recover" generally speaking the answer if yes and you will have everything up to the point of the crash.
Just for grins I exported the ecal file to Inkscape and added shading to it since that is one of the features ecal doesn't support in itself or in a traced svg file. Looks really good.
I'm not providing a free file as it is pretty simple to DIY if you know where you are going when you start :)
Happy Fall to all of us.
