We have several classes at BPC that are part of a recurring series, where a new class is added each month. One such class is Document 2015, taught by Aly Dosdall. These classes are designed to be very doable and to keep you inspired and productive every month—and as a bonus, you develop a friendship with one of our outstanding teachers, as you listen to and watch them. You become familiar with their personality, approach and process. I have known Aly Dosdall for years and I love her ability to embrace new tools and techniques. She is encouraging, personable, inviting and never intimidating. Her pages feature fun products and (generally) multiple photos. I always feel like I CAN be successful when I take a class from Aly. This is why I want to personally invite you to give Aly's class a go.
This month, Document 2015 focuses on summer memories with a delightful layout that will help you celebrate some of the fun you've experienced. Look for the things I love ... lots of photos, layers of playful product and a new tool or technique explored.
Look at that adorable pinwheel. How did she do that? Aly will show you, step-by-step in her video and she'll demonstrate how to use the Pinwheel Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers.
In addition to the video, Aly always includes helpful photos that you can revisit. AND as an super-cool bonus, she prepares a sketch that you can use and then use again and again. Sketches are helpful because they give you a neutral structure that is EASY to customize and adapt to your own photos, products and stories.
As with any class, it's inspiring to see what other students have create. I'm totally digging this page by Jennifer Korin @JennK I love the intense summer blues and the vibrant touches of red, as well as the fun sunglasses that replace the pinwheel in Aly's example.
Big Picture Classes is a place where YOU can always find the ideas and inspiration you need to do something memorable with your memories. Before you dive headlong into fall, set aside an hour to document your summer. You can do this!
