I have some paragraph text that I have modified using an envelope in Illustrator CS6. I can not make it into a clipping mask. I can make it into a mask up until I make it an envelope, after that, I cannot make it a clipping mask.
Here's what I am trying to do, and maybe someone knows a simpler way to do it. I am trying to halftone some pictures using small text instead of a halftone screen in Photoshop CS6. It looked like creating a clipping mask from the text overlaying the picture in Illustrator was the easiest way, but it won't work after I select 'envelope'. Any ideas? Thanks!!
