Hi, I just had a thought, I am wondering if there could possibly be a board for digital crafters? There is plenty of content on the internet for graphic designers who do logos and other commercial work, but not too many places where digi crafters can swap tips and tricks. Digi crafts consist of digital scrapbooks, collage sheets, and other printables made on the computer. I hope I didn't leave anything out.

I have plenty of time on my hands, so let me know if you want to go with this and I can give a hand anyway I can. If not, no biggie.

Thanks for your consideration.

Leslie

Good suggestion! I think right now that type of craft falls under the 'more art & less craft category' (mod correct me if I'm wrong) ...so please don't 'not' share your project just because there isn't a specific board dedicated only to that type of thing.  Wink Would love to see what you do!

I'd definitely agree that a digital art/craft board would be great.  I've been wishing for one because I'm not a great artist and don't feel real comfortable under More Art Less Craft, but would like to post some of the stuff I've been working on.

I hope the idea will continue to be considered.

I see that there was a little discussion 6 years ago, but am hoping that there might be more interest now.  A few years ago when I have to pull back from traditional crafting, I started creating items on my iPad using apps like Amaziograph and have come up with some fun ways of using them?

Might there be interest in a board to share the images as well as techniques?

That sounds fun! If a board like this were to exist, where do you think its home would be? Maybe More Art, Less Craft?

Would love to know if others would like this board, too.  Please speak up, if so! Smiley

I'm not sure where it would be most at home.  Programs like Photoshop and most of the drawing apps definitely feel like they would belong there, but Amaziograph feels less like art to me (though I really couldn't say why.)  Though the ol' debate of art v. craft could keep that decision going to the end of time.  Maybe I should just start an Amaziograph thread in Misc. and see if there's even any interest?

Yes, I agree that it would be nice to have a digital crafts category on Craftster.  I mostly use traditional things, but I occasionally do something digital.  I'm not certain where the best place to put it on the site would be, maybe just its' own section, alphabetically, between Crochet and Fiber Arts?

That would allow for different threads for different programs which I would think would be more functional to use.
