Hi everyone! Today is that special day of the month when the Garden Girls from Two Peas in a Bucket bring you our Gardeners' Digest blog hop! The Gardeners' Digest is a monthly update (blog hop) that includes sneak peaks of upcoming projects, recent inspiration found at Two Peas, and our favorite products found in the shop! So you probably just arrived from Lynn's blog. If not, start the hop at the NEW Two Peas blog here.
So, what do you say, should we get started?
Here's a peek into an upcoming project that will be coming to the Garden here soon. I am not sure what.it.is, but I am LOVING orange right now! Love it! I want it on everything I create! So, nevermind me, if you see orange in everything I post today! I have a slight obsession with it right now. LOL!
I just love this page by fellow Garden Girl, Jen Gallacher, called "Epic". Everything comes together here so beautifully, from the colors (including orange!), the layout, the pinwheels, the tab on the left hand side. Everything. It's one, that I may just have to lift at some point, because it really is just so awesome! For even more great photos of this wonderful layout, check it out here. :)
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!
I can tell you that we've already gotten a bunch of people who've started the class, and are having a great time, so, I hope that you are able to join in the fun with us!
The workshop is available for purchase here, and if you’re the winner of my giveaway and you’re already signed up, no problem – you’ll receive a full refund or you can gift the workshop to a friend if you prefer. :D
To enter: Please leave a comment on this post telling me what your biggest challenge is with color. Maybe its using the same color(s) over and over, maybe it is that you just don't like certain colors, or maybe it's how to mix colors. For me, I really had an issue with purple for a long time. Creating this workshop, really helped me to embrace this particular color so that now, I think I'm going to seek it out so that I can have more of it on hand when my photos call for it. :) Also, please leave your 2Peas username, that way when I draw the winner we can get you hooked up with the class as soon as possible. It will be available immediately through your account once it's been activated by the folks at Two Peas! :D
I will leave this giveaway open until Sunday, May 27th, midnight EST. The winner from my post will be announced here on my blog on Monday, May 28th. Good luck!!
Okay, now back to the hop! Here's the list of everyone in order, so now you should be headed on over to Laura's blog!
