Spending a lot of time over the past week sitting in a comfy chair and lying in bed. ugh. I thank you for your emails and comments. They've cheered me up a lot! Still kind of out of it but I've been researching apps and softwares for my binding classes and found one!* But first ... over the past few months, I discovered a couple of apps that you might like. The FREE Paper app from FiftyThree.
I bought myself a Bamboo stylus for about $15. I can't draw or write with my fingers! You can get a stylus at Target, Walmart, Best Buys, etc. I hear the foam tips are not worth buying. You want the rubber tip stylus.
I used the watercolor, marker, pencil and pen for these two sketches. The colors may be limited but you can layer them which is pretty cool.
I'm not the queen of apps, but I do like this one along with Wreck This App from Keri Smith. You can read about that one here on Keri's blog. Fun stuff. ut hope
*Back to Doceri. I'm really excited about this. It is an interactive white board which essentially makes drawings into animations for presentation. What this means to you and me is that I can make drawings of bookbindings, anotate and upload them and then you guys can see them. There are so many different learning styles. This gives me one more tool to teach a binding! YIPPITY! You can find out what kind of a learner you are here. I hope to have something up soon-ish for you to see how it works.
