Now let's turn it over to our guest blogger and BPS teacher, Nic Howard to share her point of view...
Christmas and New Year celebrations are over and I find myself with the usual feelings for this time of year.
a) I ate too much. Really. I ate too much.
b) I know the couple of weeks I’ve had off my exercise regime was bliss, but it’s time to commit again.
c) What on earth am I going to do with the three thousand gaudy, badly lit photos I took during the Holiday celebrations?
A lot of us will be having the same thoughts I think. Christmas photos are often taken in less than optimum light and despite my plan of wrapping all gifts in Kraft paper and keeping all my ribbons an easy-on-the-eye teal colour, other people bought brightly coloured gifts into my home (how dare they?!) and all of a sudden the colours were scary again.
I guess its back to the same ol’ same ol’ holiday layouts. Or is it?
I’ve never been a cliché scrapbooker. I’ve never enjoyed the typical or expected in the way of journaling. I’ve always enjoyed looking beyond the obvious. And through the content of my back-by-popular-demand, four-week workshop, Point of View, I’ll introduce you to some ways to get over the obvious and find new subject matter for your projects. Point of View starts January 28th, so there are only a few days left to join us!
So what’s the other thing on my mind as I entered the New Year? My Big Picture Scrapbooking 4Experts workshop, Dimensional Details.
I mentioned I’ve never been a cliché scrapbooker with the content of my layouts, but I’ve never been a simple scrapbooker either. When the rest of the scrapbooking fraternity embraced simple, I’ve been running for the paper to add another layer. I like to build each page from the base up with texture and detail, but the challenge? The photos and story have to remain the focus.
So here I am buried in product, example layouts and scribbled notes, ready to share it all with you. Whether you are the kind of person that already loves dimensional, textured layouts and you want more, or whether you are the type of person that feels intimidated by embellishments, this workshop is for you. Registration starts on the 4th of February, and I’m hoping to see some of you there!
Here’s a little taste of the kind of images you might see…
