Meet the Cricut Design Space

I like  to do hybrid art journaling and like here and there do some home decor and some children’s projects and if you are like me electronic die cut machines are certainly the go to machine for you. Today they are very convenient and technology definitely helped them to get easier to use.

 

I had my first cricut many years ago soon after I started paper scrapping, at that time the cricut used cartridges, later I had a Silhouette Studio  which had great designs but at the time as a mac user I  had constant problems because the Silhouette would not update for mac as frequently. So, when I decided to get back to hybrid I went  back to the Cricut which changed a lot from my first one and I loved it. I can say I’m  a Cricut   fan.

Gesture Drawing 2.1

How to improve your drawing ?

That’s a question I have all the time. I became very interested in drawing 2 years ago and did many online classes but mostly they were to draw whimsical faces and or girls, but recently following some artists that draw faces I’ve noticed they started going to museums for sessions of gesture drawing.

Usually art places do that for a minor fee they have a live model and people have specific  time window to draw  each pose. This system helps you to forget about perfection as you have a short time to draw. It’s more about perception of shapes than realistic drawing.

How to Make a Template your Own

I hope you are enjoying so far all the magic of goodness that is happening at Scrapaneers this month. So many great kits to work with. But I have to confess that cluster-heavy templates scare me a.lot.

When I saw this template my first reaction was not to  use it. While it is a gorgeous design, I was scared because I felt my style was so different. But, giving it a second thought, I realized that would go against something I believe about digital scrapping and the reason why I love it: we can change things and make them our own to conquer our design fears. So challenge accepted!

The Fragment App

The Fragment App

One of my favorite things to do is to discover new photography apps to play with. Photography apps save us time and  many times they give our pictures a different look or more artistic look that otherwise would take hours or a lot of steps to accomplish in Photoshop.

I want to have time to create more and also to exercise my creative brain thinking how can I incorporate these pictures in my layouts because they are created without a particular layout or kit in mind so it’s fun later to see which effect will fit in what I want to work with. It saves me time that way.

My latest obsession is a app called: Fragments. It is an app for both Android and iPhone that creates prismatic effects with your photos.
