Since school has been back in session, I have had so little time for my paper cutting. My teaching time and time spent on extra duties at work, have been the most taxing of my entire 26 year career. When I get home, I just want to sit and be left alone for a while. I'm not willing to let go of the things at home that bring me joy though, and I am trying to find ways to adapt.
I had been using a trial version of ArtRage on the computer, but hadn't quite gotten the results I wanted. One of my driving reasons for buying an iPad was for template making, so I bought an ArtRage app for it. Oddly enough, at a price that was $60 less than the computer program, and with as many features as that program, the app just feels right to me.
Here's a design I played around with just now. I may cut it out to see how it translates to cut paper. At any rate, it is fun playing around with different features.
