I can FINALLY share my BIG news!!!

Kaleidoscope564x430
I am so EXCITED to finally share with you why I've been absent from my lil ole blog for so long!

Over the past month, I have been working morning, noon, and night on a special project that started with an idea back in March. The idea was to create a workshop for Two Peas in a Bucket that teaches scrapbookers how to integrate more color into their projects using the basic theories of the color wheel, and color theory. As a graphic designer, these theories have been ingrained in me for a long time, however, most people do not know how to use this simple yet effective tool, so the idea was born and now, after LOTS of work and literally some blood, sweat and tears, my workshop is LIVE and available at Two Peas in a Bucket, here!

Here's the "official" blurb:

Do you wish you could add more color to your scrapbooking projects? Have you ever wondered how to mix manufacturers' products and collections with ease? And let's talk about all those products you've been hoarding in your stash, ever wish you could learn to use more of those in your projects? Join Garden Girl Amy Heller as she teaches a color theory based workshop, 'Through the Kaleidoscope | Making Sense of Color 4 Scrapbooking' based on the principles of the color wheel. 

As a graphic designer and former creative and art director by trade, Amy's experience in color has spanned not only from the crafting world, but over 10 years professional experience in the design of advertising, brand development and packaging. Over five chapters, she'll share 50 brand new scrapbook pages by her and her group of contributors. Each chapter contains a printable PDF containing beautiful color inspiration boards from daily life as well as from scrapbooking supplies for each of the principles and colors covered, as well as a coordinating video. Included is a handy, portable flip card set with each of the color theories covered as well as the full color wheel for taking to your next crop or simply having in your craft area for easy and convenient color reference. 

The content of this workshop will be available immediately upon purchase. The lessons are available for you to work at your own pace and upon purchase can be accessed in the "Workshops" section under "Classes & Events." A private message board forum is also available to ask questions for Amy and to connect with other participants. Enjoy! 2747911_600x600
If color is something that you struggle with, then learning some of the basics of color theory will surely help you to start thinking about color and your scrapbooking products differently!
