I am SO excited to tell you about a new mini workshop at 2peas with Lisa Truesdell. I’m sure you’ve seen Lisa’s amazing work and I was honored to be asked to be a part of her class. The content looks amazing! Here’s some info on the class:

Start Here mini workshop with Lisa Truesdell

“Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.” – Pablo Picasso 

Get a jump on inspiration with Start Here. In this workshop, Lisa Truesdell will give you the tools to turn almost any image into a jumping off point for your next layout. You’ll learn to break down images into smaller elements and use them to inspire your page’s color combo, design, or even new techniques. We’ll talk about finding images you love and identifying what grabbed you about them, and how to put that inspiration to work! Lisa is joined by twelve talented contributors who will each be sharing a page based on one of Lisa’s inspiration pieces, as well as their thoughts on finding starting points in unexpected places. 

Included in the workshop are 27 brand-new scrapbook pages (15 from Lisa and 12 from her contributors) showcasing a variety of interpretations of inspiration pieces, 3 printable PDFs and 3 brand new videos following Lisa as she makes a layout starting with an inspiration piece.

Lisa’s talented contributors include Allison Waken (me!), Ashley Calder, Becky Novacek, Doris Sander, Erica Hernandez, Emily Spahn, Kelly Noel, Kristina Nicolai-White, Laura Kurz, Lexi Bridges, Lisa Dickinson, and Marcy Penner

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 Lisa and to connect with other participants. 

Cost: $12.00
