I like simple designs and also the spontaneity of art journaling. My creative outlets are trying new techniques in Photoshop, gardening, and zendoodling. I have been designing digitally since 2000. Taking my projects from room to room (or on vacation), is a definite plus, and love the fact that there is no mess to clean up.

Favorite Tools

  • A photo and Photoshop Elements 8.

Favorite Inspiration

Printing & Sharing

I rarely print my layouts, it’s more about the process and creative outlet. When I do print, I send to local photo store. I usually create in a 8×8 format, so I can print from home (someday I will get to it).

Tips & Tricks

 I use the opacity, and blending modes in almost all my layouts. Like the effect of sandwiching type between various stacked photo layers. Free actions: The Pioneer Woman (and good recipes too:)
