Perhaps you're a mama or a grandma watching children you love grow up before your very eyes. The stories of YOUR beautiful life deserve to be told, and there's NO better way to tell them than with digital scrapbook pages. It's 2020 and a GREAT time to refresh those techniques, learn a ton, AND create 8 GORGEOUS layouts! Wait til you see what's in this new course!
Class begins on February 11, which is PLENTY of time to get your skills brushed up and get ready for class! I can't wait! Now how about a peek?
Our Goal: Build Skill & Create Lovely Layouts!
In this brand-new 2020 class, I'll walk you through four gorgeous intermediate-level layouts, each packed with techniques I don't teach anywhere else, plus four "recipe" layouts that invite you to hone your design skills and have great fun. This class builds on the material we've worked on in the previous five classes, moving to a new level of skill and complexity, and creativity. Time to stretch those wings! Digital 6: New Digi Tricks is the third in the INTERMEDIATE group, and the 6th overall. All the content and concepts are brand new! I cannot wait to show you what awesome things we can make together!
With all the supplies, downloads, video instruction and new content, this class is valued at more than $250!
Lesson one contains a massively massive digital kit AND tutorials on organizing your supplies in either Photoshop Elements Organizer or Adobe Bridge. You'll love getting started with organizing as a special bonus!
What You'll Learn
You've come to the spot in your Photoshop journey where YouTube and one-off tutorials just won't cut it anymore. If you want to really dive deeper and learn Photoshop in a really comprehensive way, you need a teacher and a plan. Guess what! You'll have both!
By now, you've taken the first 5 courses, or you've got a few months' experience in Photoshop. With that as your starting point, you'll be amazed at how much you can do with the techniques I teach, including how to:
- Create a two-page digital scrapbook page in Photoshop
- Use the Photoshop drawing tools to create your own clipping masks
- Copy and reuse type layers
- Use Photoshop tools to recolor, resize, and combine layers for a whole new look to patterned paper and embellishments
- Use time-saving hotkeys
- Cut apart a two-page spread into single 12x12 documents for printing
- Make design decisions as I guide you through what to look for and how to achieve your perfect style
- And more!
But these aren't all! In addition to each lesson you'll receive "Recipes" for projects that build off the main lessons, as well as templates for both additional layouts and mini-albums with the same designs to mix and match.And don't forget the awesome digital supplies you'll get with EACH Lesson and Recipe - a $60 value!
What You'll Need To Know
In addition to your open and excited mind (and nimble mouse-and-keyboard fingers), you'll need any version of Photoshop. (I'll be using Photoshop Elements in my Digital 6 videos, with explanations of any differences between that and Photoshop CC). By now you know that this is an intermediate level class. ;) So in order to be 100% successful, you’ll need to know a few basics already. In the videos and recipe lessons, I'll assume that you know how to:
Download and unzip files
Download and install fonts and brushes
Open, close, and start new blank files
Open templates and use clipping masks
Use the Move, Type, and Brush tools
Save files for .psd, print, and the web
If you need refreshers on any of these basics, check out my Digi 1 course, and the rest of the digital classes to dust off those skills before coming to class! I want you to be successful in Digi 6. Of course if you have questions, please don't hesitate to ask. The prerequisite for this cass is the successful completion of the following, or their equivalent:
