"There is such a diverse group here, with such different art forms, I think it would be interesting to see what tools others use on a regular basis to create their art or product."
Ah.. this is a fun one!
Let's see... my primary 'art' is my scrapbooking. There are a few tools that I consider a 'must have' for my artistic endeavours.
1. My 12" Fiskar's Paper Trimmer
This is such an AWESOME trimmer. It cuts so smooth and so crisp. I love it!
Another tool I NEED is my pair of Cutter Bee Scissors. If you have not had the fortune to use a pair of these scissors, you have missed out! I've had several other brands of scissors but none have held up to the abuse and use like my Cutter bee!!
Being a scrapbooker, I rely heavily on my digital camera to take the photos that I so LOVE to scrap! This is a fabulous little Nikon digital camera. It's small, has video capacity, and has many different settings with which you can fiddle and get the exact shot you want. It even has a cool feature that you can use to snap photos instantly one after another in a cool action sequence. (can ya tell I love it!?)
These 2 aren't TOOLS, but they are defintely necessary for the inspiration and creation of my scrapbooking layouts!
