Need more "how-to" with Elements Review by Scop

Her art quilts are AWESOME! BUT. . .Not what I thought I was getting. I needed more information about using Photoshop Elements to create digital designs than quilting.

Diane Rusin Doran is an amazing quilt artist and this DVD is fantastic. She is articulate, thorough, provided detailed information, many "tips" and is so informative. I hope that she will do more DVD's in the future on this topic! Thank you, Diane! Sondra
