Here is an infograph showing various ways to use the same basic illustration. The intent here is not to instruct in the various techniques, but rather to help you brainstorm some ideas.
None of the illustrations here have been drawn or cut out at this time so it is possible they need a little editing. However, I wanted to give you some suggestions that you can build on. For those of you that have less experience with Inkscape, I hope to add more tutorials in the future that give additional information about how to accomplish these results.
