From Phone or Camera to Project - this video-based class gets those lovely photos off your camera roll and onto FOUR artsy mixed media photo projects perfect for display or gifting. I will share with you the process I use to prepare my photos to send off to my local printer or print at home and/or my favorite online sources.

Step-by-step video tutorials take you through the process of creating these four artful projects. Follow along in my style or in your own - your choice. These projects are especially designed for any skill level. Beginners will be comfortable while advanced students can take off and make these as detailed as they desire. This class is for everyone, yes, YOU!

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish and how long do I have access to the course?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish. How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like.
Will you show me how to use my camera, give me recommendations for the perfect camera or teach HOW to take photos?
No, this workshop does not cover a review of cameras or how to shoot your photos. This workshop is about getting those photos off of your camera or cell phone and into a format that can be used to create artsy projects. I show you how "I" do it and then we create the projects using the photos. Lots of techniques thrown in and ideas that can be used with or without photos.
Will you show me how to use photo editing software other than Photoshop?
No, I am going to show how I prepare my photos for printing using Photoshop on a Mac. Once you see the basics, they can be adapted to any photo editing software. I am sorry I can't offer assistance with other software or computers.
Can I watch on my iPad or smartphone?
If everything is up-to-date on your IPAD and/or smart phone, there should be no problem using them.
Are videos available for download?
No, videos are not available for download. Once you pay for the class you have access for as long as you wish. Come back to the videos over-and-over for inspiration.
May I share access or get a refund?
One student per purchase. No splitting/sharing classes, please! The tuition is non-refundable once access has been given to registrants.

It has broad lines, great for writing names and addresses on postcards, but writes smoothly and lusciously like a brush. The ball tip makes it easier to control and use the pen for writing compared to a brush pen. I like how smooth it is and it writes perfectly over dried paint.
