National Scrapbooking Day (NSD) 2016 is cause for a little celebration…

NSD 2016 takes place 7th May and we’re hosting a ArtPlay Unedited 2 event at Anna Aspnes Designs for the perfect Not So Dull (NSD) Saturday.

ArtPlay Unedited 2 is an interactive on-line workshop for photo enthusiasts, scrapbookers and artists looking for greater insight and guidance in using the DigitalART product range.

This 2 hour event will offer entertainment and education pertaining to the creation of artsy digital scrapbook layouts and digital artistry.

We’ll kick off the event at 9.45 am with a little pre-event informal banter while everyone arrives.

ArtPlay Unedited 2 will begin at 10.00 am with a brief welcome and introduction to 2 special guests, Linda Davis and Adryane Driscoll.

Linda will interview Adryane during the first approximately 30 minutes of the event. During this time you’ll learn about Adryane’s approach to digital artistry and gain exclusive insight into some of her core techniques through examining some of her layouts.

There should be time for a few questions before I take the stage for 60 minutes of ‘fly-by-the-seat of my pants’ ArtPlay, in which I will create a digital art layout featuring at least 5 digital art techniques. The intent is for you to have a birds eye view of my own process and how I play with the product range in real time.

ArtPlay Unedited 2 will demonstrate the following digital techniques:

  • Combine FotoBlendz clipping masks with ArtsyTransfers.
  • Span the same image across multiple frames and a FotoBlendz clipping masks.
  • Realistic coloring of UrbanStitchez and UrbanThreadz using the Paint Brush tool.
  • Colorize a photo using Gradients.
  • Recolor and stylize WordART.
  • Create a successful element cluster.

And probably a whole LOT more…

A Q&A session of approximately 30 minutes will bring this 2 hour event to a close.

Please note that content in this workshop is exclusive to ArtPlay Unedited 2 and is open to anyone who would like to attend.

The first ArtPlay Unedited event was open to AnnaBlendz LIVE alumni only and is available here.

The LIVE advantage. The concepts and techniques delivered in ArtPlay Unedited 2 are designed to grow your skills in the realm of artsydigital designs and better understand the DigitalART product range. The virtual online classroom provides greater focus, with the opportunity to ask questions in LIVE in real-time, via the chat box feature, as we demonstrate techniques.

Unable to attend a class?  No problem. ArtPlay Unedited 2 will be recorded and the replay will be delivered to the inbox of every registrant shortly after each session to provide endless viewing at your own convenience. You will also be able to download the  DigitalART product I use in my ArtPlay Unedited 2 layouts, plus the layered .PSD files created in class.

Software Requirements: This course is taught in Photoshop Elements 14, but the content will empower all Adobe Photoshop and Elements users
