|13 Petal Repeat © Karen Thiessen 2012|
Ta da!! This week I made a significant breakthrough in my Adobe Illustrator self-education and learned how to make a 13 petalled flower. I made a petal by drawing an oval and adjusting it with the direct selection tool. Using a calculator, I divided 360 by 13 and then copied and transformed each of the petals by 27.69 degrees. I'm sure there's an easier way, but this method got the job done! Next, I'm going to figure out how to make a starburst pattern. Wish me luck.
