This is a great class to get those creative juices going again. Our instructor, Elizabeth Dillow, offers a challenge prompt every so many days, to create something we may have never tried or thought of before. It’s been really fun, so far. Here are challenges 2 and 3 (number 1 I’ve posted previously.)
Sometimes, stepping outside of our comfort zones is good for us, whether it’s in reference to being artistic and creative, or in other areas of life. Here, it is good for me because part of my love for scrapbooking involves learning and growing. The classes I am taking at Big Picture Classes certainly nurture this. Go ahead and try something different next time you do something crafty. I’ll bet you’ll love it! Happy Scrapping!
My third class assignment for today comes from Elizabeth Dillow’s “Design Challenges”. It gives us 12 different design challenges to tackle, and today’s was to take a familiar sight or media form and incorporate it into a layout. A play on form, so to speak. Some of the ideas suggested are a periodic table, eye chart, road sign, calendar grid, menu, program, social media status update, etc. I chose an eye chart for my layout (you would be amazed what you can find on Google!) that I personalized and added a photo taken from today:
This was a fun assignment in order to step outside the box of putting photos into a traditional-looking page. Sometimes it’s fun to do something different! Happy scrapping!
