Doodling……………….

but not in one of my sketchbooks but on a new Wacom drawing tablet. I’ve wanted to find something that will allow me to work through ideas for fmq motifs without using a plexiglass/dry erase marker or photographing a block and pencil sketching or taking a photo and slipping it in a vinyl sleeve and using a dry erase marker. Am still working out the “kinks”, but this is the set-up….IMG_6595. There’s a stylus that I use to ‘draw’  on the tablet that’s connected to a USB port. My frustration level has been a bit up and down, as has the learning curve. Some major issues with the software has somewhat delayed the comfortable(?) use of this add-on!  This little cutie Mell's angel  is a sneak peak at tomorrow’s post. The yellow ‘sketchings’ are possibilities for the fmq. Still learning, but getting easier!!!! Yay!!!!

      Please don’t be….really. These things merely serve to raise my frustration-meter!!!! I really wanted just a very simple, basic draw/sketch program and have been unable to come up with one so I resorted to this purchase which is the bottom of the line and still way over=kill. …..but thanks so much for your confidence in me!!!!! Hugs………

    Isn’t technology great? …when it works and is useful! This does look like an answer for you. Hoping the kinks work out fast and the learning curve levels quickly. Looking forward to next post.
