PicArtia | Create Photo Collage Online A Creative Dream: Do you remember... Hello again Everyone! This post has just taken on such a life of its own thanks to Pinterest! This morning (8/9/13) a reader left a question about what pencils I had used in the comment section below. After I went and answered her I realized that there might be a few more questions... so I did another post about what I've learned working with this plastic. You can find those hints and tips here. Blogger's note (January 2013): Goodness y'all, had I realized this post was going to get "pinned" and become so darned popular I'd have made sure to take better pics! Another note (April 2013)... A few years ago I found plain sheets of Shrinky Dinks...and, of course, had to buy them. So...the other day while rummaging on the crafty shelf, I ran across the package of them and thought...." This time, I decided to add a bit of color (with colored pencils)...because in the back of my mind I see this finished piece, and it just would not be as spectacular in black and white.

Photo Tips and Techniques for Beginners I remember the day I got my DSLR camera in the mail-- I had saved up for months to buy my little Nikon D40 and I watched the postal tracking code like my dog waits for her food in the mornings. (So. Excited.) :) When my brown Amazon box finally came, my heart was beating so fast that I could barely cut open the tape. I took out the Nikon and held it in my hands-- that weight and feel is so familiar to me today. I started taking pictures right away, the same photos that everyone takes with a new camera: everything that is in direct sight. My hands, the countertop, the microwave, my feet, the cat, a pile of newspapers. Back then, I didn't have a clue as to what in the heck I was doing. This photo: ISO: 400, f/2.8, Shutter: 1/30, taken in Wyoming at the Grand Tetons National Park, summer 2011. I think that composition is the first, easiest, most fun, and most important lesson to learn in photography. Square Composition: I am also a huge fan of the square photograph. More square love: For fun:
ToonDoo - World's fastest way to create cartoons! News from Zentangle Earlier this month, we gave mini-workshops at the National Art Education Association (NAEA) in the Sakura booth. (Sakura makes the pens we use.) We gave 30 minute classes on the hour and the half hour! We had between 20 - 30 people at each event. At the end of one mini-workshop a lady got our attention. When a child goes there for treatment, his or her arm is strapped down and the chemo is administered. She and her students worked with the hospital staff to immobilize the kids' non-dominant arms so they could be free to draw. "I just wanted to let you know the powerful impact that Zentangle is having that you may not know about," she said. She described how these children became focused on creating and how they valued their tiles as a talisman of this critical part of their life's journey. Well, after hearing this and holding this woman's hand, tears were running freely.
