So this is my new Bio. I have decided to update the old Bio stuff.

I bought my first ever computer in 2003. I didn't get the internet until 2004.


Graphics & Art:
Graphics wise I consider myself new to it all. I am self taught, so basically I have no clue as to what a lot of things mean in graphics terms. I prefer to just learn from my mistakes. I hate reading booklets on how to use things.

I use Ulead Photoimpact (It's not a graphics program, it's actually a photo editing program). I also use Adobe Photoshop Elements 5, and Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2, Corel Paint Shop Pro X7, Photoscape, Some online programs, and some Free downloadable programs. I have been trying to use my bamboo tablet more these days, since getting my brand new computer. But I would love to get a better one that actually does more than the current one I have. Although I am pretty happy with the one I have right now.I can wait to get a newer one, maybe once I get better at using it.

CHALLENGES - ETC.
I love to push myself into trying new things. I really want to do some art type challenges.

FAN VIDEOS
I want to try and get better at making fan videos. Need lots more work on doing them.

HANDS ON ART WORK
For actual hands on art work, I am going to be play around with oil painting. I also love to do collages, I actually find doing them rather relaxing. Let's see I will also be doing some stenciling on wooden objects. One of which is a tray for my mom. I found after doing some stencil things, I actually suck at it. Not sure if it will be something I will stick with.

CROSS STITCH
I also do cross stitch. Not too much anymore, do to my hands getting bad. I still would love to finish off all my started projects and then go from there.

CAMERA STUFF
I enjoy playing around with my camera. I am far from being a professional. But I do enjoy snapping shots of kids. It's always fun to catch a kid off guard. I used to snap shots of my great niece and nephew all the time so their mom and dad could see what they missed during the day. I do like taking pictures of random stuff around the house, and outside, if someone takes me out. Um, this is weird, but I love taking pictures of food. Especially when I eat something a bit different.

MAKING BOOKS
I enjoy trying to make books now. It's a new thing.

SEWING BY HAND
Sewing by hand, that is something I haven't done in ages. I am in the process of trying to make a book bag and some coin purses.
The big project I want to tackle is making myself a quilt.

DRAWING
Drawing, damn I'm lucky I can even doodle. My drawing skills suck. I still want to learn how to draw better.


ABOUT ME:
I don't leave the house by myself, so it's pretty hard to get nature type pictures. Although when someone does take me out, I try to get a few nature shots if at all possible. Which it's very rare for someone to take me out.

I enjoy cooking using random recipes. I'm no chef, but a lot of the stuff I make comes out pretty good. :)

I enjoy reading all kinds of books. But mainly autobiographies and biographies and science fiction and fantasy.

There are quite a few celebrities/musicians I would love to meet in person.
Here's a few I would love to meet:
John Barrowman, Scott Gill, Norman Reedus, Andrew Lincoln, Gareth Daivd-Lloyd, Linkin Park, Lady Gaga, Aerosmith, Eagles, and many more. And now I would also love to meet: Michael Rosenbaum, Michael Cram, David Paetkau, Enrico Colantoni, Amy Jo Johnson, Olunike Adeliyi, Jessica Steen, and of course Sergio Di Zio, JR Bourne, and many more.



Current Residence: USA
Favourite genre of music: All kinds
Favourite style of art: All Kinds
Operating System: Windows 10
Wallpaper of choice: Torchwood or John Barrowman, The Walking Dead, Norman Reedus, currently it's Flashpoint
Favourite cartoon character: Any of the Smurfs and some others.
Personal Quote: I'm not dense, I just have no imagination.

Plus I am getting into blogging now. I tried to blog everyday, but I had to go without for over a week, once I got it back, I failed at blogging everyday, but I try my best to do it everyday. Not doing all that great either. But I won't give up.

So since my Torchwood cards were stolen and the owner or whatever from this online sites continues to sell them and profit off of my creations, I decided to add watermarks to my cards.

If anyone is interested in using these for role-playing (If you are interested in using them for other purposes such as cosplay or anything else ask permission first.) I have these in PSD format PNG format. I will be glad to share for anyone to use these.
They come in White, the grey shade above and black. 

But I highly doubt anyone will want to use something I made.  :| (Blank Stare) 
I just thought I would put it out there in case anyone was interested.  You talk too much!

OK, so I am curious about how people make some cool scrapbook pages and embellishments.

I mean I look at tons of scrapbook embellishments daily to try and get ideas on how people make them. And I am just totally stuck on this.
I don't get how some of these things can come out so perfect. I mean some of them are starting to look like they are from the same person and only putting them into different kits with a new name to the creator. 

And then to go on with the scrapbook papers. I mean wtf seriously some of them are even starting to look the exact same as a previous kit, just with yet another new name creator on the said kit. 


This is rather confusing, but I really, really want to get into doing digital scrapbooking. Or at least making some kits. (at least try my best on making better ones than the first one I made on here for sure)

I just want to know how some go about making some seriously cute papers. (Not the scrapbook layouts, I am more into making the scrapbook papers right now)
And how do some of you go about creating such awesome embellishments? 

Is there a free program or some random free templates that you don't need to give credit to the original creator or something that you can do with as you wish?

Not sure where to start exactly and how to go about doing this stuff the right way. 

I really hope someone will read this post and help me out the best they can.

If you read this and don't want to leave a reply in this journal post, feel free to message me. I won't tell anyone how you go about doing your stuff. I just want to be pointed in the right direction.

Once I asked about how someone goes about doing this sort of thing. Such as how do you make embellishments look so real.
I got you just keep trying and learn that way. (Ok, for some reason I find that reply somewhat lame)
I'm beginning to think some actually just do something along the lines of cutting some image out (remove the background of some image) grey scale it and recolor it whenever they need some certain embellishment for a scrapbook kit. 

But like I said I have no idea what people do. And I can't seem to get a proper answer from anyone out there that does kits. 

I don't like the idea of really using other peoples stuff either and having to give them credit for something I did something to after. If you get what I mean.

I do scan lots of scrapbook papers and wallpapers and material that I got free and or bought from the store I tend to use as fills for some of the stuff I make. But nothing comes out as cool as some of the stuff I've seen.

OK, so now that I am done blahing on with my amazement on how some people make these kick ass awesome scrapbook kits, I really hope someone can be more clear on how they got started and help out a newbie on this sorta thing and not give me the lame line learn as you go shit. :P


And if you know of any places I can get free templates for making embellishments and not have to give credit to the said person and I can sell a digital scrapbook or whatever without having to pay for that said embellishment that would be even cooler. (I hope that made sense. Cause I am rereading that sentence and it's going blah blah blah cause I am over tired)
