"My favorite piece of technology is my MacBook Pro! Love, love, love my computer because I love, love, love designing. My iPhone and Nikon 70 camera are a close tie for second place.
I have no real photography background. Digital scrapbooking has changed all that. Now, it’s hard to find me without a camera in my hand or, at least, close by me. I read photography books and have taken some classes. I love photographing people and that is what you will see in most of my layouts. I’m fascinated with the expressions, movements and faces of people. I rarely use a photo without first tweaking it a bit. How can I resist playing with all the cool things that can be done in Photoshop?!
The digital software I use is Adobe Photoshop CS4 and Illustrator. I love everything about the software and get excited that I have only scratched the surface. My favorite tool or technique would have to be blending modes and layer masks. I use layer after layer of blending modes while designing digital papers and embellishments. Layer masks allow me to create realistic layouts with depth and dimension."
