I enjoyed this course. It was nice to see how different art forms can inspire one to be creative in card making. The 'Muse Brainstorm Guide" is a wonderful resource. I have found this guide helpful to "think outside the box". It was great to see so many art forms discussed. It does give one a broad overview of ways to expand your vision in card making. Thank you for sharing your perspectives. I recently took the "Runway Inspired Card Making" course. I found that this 'Muse" course was a great foundation for the newer course. "Muse" offers an overview of different art forms to draw inspiration from while the newer course concentrates on one art form. The guide discussed in 'Muse" is certainly applicable to use with the newer course too. Both courses complement each other.
Enjoyed the class. Learned new techniques. One gets so hung up on layering because of all the gorgeous products coming out that one forgets the beauty of simplicity and planning a project. Thanks Kelly. Oh I did cheat a little with the layer die cuts, but the rest of the card is using Kelly's technique. Just an example of poor planning on my part.
I like Kelly's teaching very much! There is so much theoretical input which is necessary for the practical work and seeing her working is a great pleasure.
The classes were great. I had one little problem getting into the second day class, but after emailing altenew, the problem was taken care of quickly.
I love watching/listening to Kelly on YT so I decided to take this class with her also, and because I love to watch her colouring. It was good to get back to basics and keep it simple on one layer, and I learned a lot and made some lovely cards Thanks Kelly!
Loved this set of tutorials. It provided an alternative to the multi-layer card which is difficult and more costly to mail. With these techniques you get to make classy cards that will wow the recipient. Some of the cards are works of art. I'd recommend this tutorial.
Great class for stretching your background stamps and creating beautiful backgrounds without background stamps.
This was the first Altenew class I ever did! I had seen it advertised and watched the promo video and wanted to see more things to do with those background stamps (which I already had), plus there was an early bird so I signed up straight away. Great class, forced me to go out and buy more stamps haha never a bad thing!
