I have successfully masked a texture over text using this tutorial here: http://www.designmarkgraphics.co.uk/blog/articles/2014/12/07/create-gritty-worn-and-distressed-inkscape-designs.html
Basically, I currently do the following:
- Create text/design.
- Insert Image
- Place/stretch Image to cover my text/design
- Select ALL
This works, but it's not very "workable"... I have to place this image on top of my design at the very last step, and then it makes going back and editing my pre-textured design a hassle. I basically have to press undo, to undo the mask, then make my design changes, then go through the add a texture steps above again. This is a big hassle. Is there a better workflow for me? Possibly using layers that I can hide/un-hide?
Any help is much appreciated.
