Inaugural Post

OK, I've finally taken the plunge into the wonderful world of blogging, mostly encouraged by my long-distance art buddy Michi. And by the way, you can view her fabulous blog here.

I spent many hours completing a series of wonderful tutorials called Stepping Stones Through PSP so I could actually use my Paint Shop Pro X2. If you have PSP, get lesson info here. Using this newly acquired knowledge, I just finished my blog banner using digital elements from kits I purchased at Scrapbook Graphics/Studio Girls and Scrap Orchard, two of my favorite digital stores. Let me know what you think of my banner!

In other news, I was privileged to be a Guest Designer for Technique Junkies Newsletter for the August/September issue that is now in the mail. If you aren't a member yet, you don't know what you're missing! Here is one of my sample cards for a technique called AI Foil. The background was made with a Cuttlebug folder and the leaves and acorn are from Spellbinders dies.

Don't forget to feed the fish at the bottom of my screen. Just move your cursor around & they will follow you. Click to feed them!
Well, that's it for today!
