I'm excited to introduce you to my new 4-week workshop: Hybrid.
Most simply, hybrid memory keeping pairs printed digital products such embellishments, brushes + layered templates from your computer with traditional scrapbooking products. Over the four weeks I'll walk you through my favorite ways to use printed digital products to get more of your stories told.
Content for this four-week workshop will be broken up into three main sections: The Basics, Brushes, and Overlays + Templates:
- The Basics: downloading, storing, organizing, opening, printing digital products
- Brushes: recoloring, adding to photos, going big, creating backgrounds + patterns, working with journal cards, tracing + cutting with the Silhouette, creating embellishments + printing
- Overlays + Templates: adding text to overlays and photos, photo collages, working with layered templates (what they are and how to use them), adding physical embellishments to printed layered templates
My goal is to walk you through the steps of making digital products a part of your regular memory keeping process. That might mean simply printing an embellishment or journal card you like or it might mean starting your entire layout on the computer and then printing it out and adding physical embellishments on top.
Examples of techniques will include both past projects and new ones centered on showing how to work with specific kinds of digital products. Video tutorials will be all new using Photoshop Elements 14 or Photoshop (depending on the project). When applicable Ali will also show how to use the digital products in Word. Please know that this is NOT a workshop that will teach you all the ins and outs of either Photoshop program. This workshop, as with all of Ali's workshops, will focus on the ways in which she uses her computer and digital products vs. exploring every available technique and option.
Included in the cost of the workshop is a full digital package of products, similar to what is offered in my Digital Story Kits™ (journal cards, brushes, and embellishments - valued at $19.99), and sample layered templates and additional digital items as they make sense for specific lessons (these will be made available later in the class). This workshop will be especially helpful for people who are subscribers to my Digital Story Kits™ and have been wondering how to make the most of their subscription.
Here's a look at the digital package included with this workshop:
New content will be delivered over the four weeks on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
As always, even with a focus on working with and printing digital products, Ali's projects and ideas will be rooted in stories and her examples will be showing how the products can best support the stories you want to tell.
