I Want To Scrap With A Pen and Tablet

I don’t know too many digital scrapbookers that don’t, at one time or another, want a pen tablet.  They are a lot of fun, but can also be frustrating to get the hang of. One of the things that I love about using my tablet, is how I can suddenly feel and maybe even look, like an artist when using the right programs (listen to the discussion in Paperclipping Digi #1).

I did some digging and found some great resources for those of you that are wanting to learn how to use a tablet:

For those of you that do not have tablets, you might be wondering if it’s necessary.  I know when I first started digital scrapbooking, I thought a tablet was a needed tool.  They are not necessarily needed.  A lot of digi scrappers that have wrist problems associated with mouse usage do prefer to use a pen and tablet for everything on their computer.  They do make it much easier to draw and use drawing type programs (vector programs as well as ArtRage).  So, I guess it depends on what you plan to do and how you want to do it, if a pen tablet is high on the priority list.  No matter what, they are a lot of FUN!
