This is my very first digital layout ever. I learned from the team at PixelScrapper, where I am a Level 3 Commons Designer, all about quality control basics. I was taught about things such as missing and stray pixels, how to fix gamut issues if they are not in RGB Color mode, making sure that work was always created at 300 dpi (resolution) for papers, not adding shadows to individual graphics unless they are being used in a flat jpg file and so much more.
From videos on YouTube and tutorials from the web, I was able to design many things, thanks to those who shared their ideas. I am very grateful!
I am a full time working wife and mother of three sons. I love all manner of crafting; From digital scrap-booking to tangible mixed media projects. I love to learn from other people and get exposed to the huge world of art.
Creativity is in my blood. I have always sketched pictures since I was a kid, and now with social media (Thanks YouTube, Pinterest, Google images, etc....) I have become so overwhelmed with what project(s) to do for the day. I don't even know where to start. Should I make cards or make my own clay? Or should I design a wall hanging for the living room. I have become ridiculously indecisive with what I want to make.
Also, I have become a craft hoarder. From paints, to dies and other cutting machines, to scrapbook paper and other designer card stock and embellishments, I have turned my little kitchen nook into my craft studio. I'm surprised my husband hasn't told me to get rid of all of the craft supplies....ie..clutter.
My craft collection addiction is partially what made me want to learn more about digital scrap booking. It is all new for me, but I have invested in the Adobe Photoshop application and I have scoured YouTube on learning different techniques in layering scrapbook images, pages, brushes, and so on.
Now I can go to the next level of design by doing it digitally.
