Hi: I am creating a canoeing map for my daughters. I want to change the map from this...
into something that looks more like this...
Specifically, is there a Live Paint Bucket effect that can mimic the blue watercolor border in the antique map?
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
1 Effect>Stylize>Inner Glow (there are two stylized items in the Effcts Menu the one in the top section is what you want.
2 From The Effects>Effects Gallery select Dry Brush apply it once and then apply it one more time
You get something like this.
If you have closed paths, you may apply Object>Path>Offset Path a couple of times and give each generation a different fill or stroke. Use a negative offset for the main lakeshore, positive for the islands.
And adding a slight "Roughen" effect to the inside strokes would strengthen the watercolor look.
