- Commenting on student drafts of their persuasive papers.
- Putting together an online presentation on adding stitching to your pages.
If you go to Lain Ehmann's Layout a Day site and sign up, you can participate next week!
A side note: people sometimes ask me where I learned to design, or how I can scrap so quickly and purposefully. Two things: Design Your Life by Cathy Zielske at Big Picture Classes, and Layout a Day (LOAD) with Lain Ehmann. The first was billed as a class where you would be able to look at a page and know in an instant what the page needs; I have to say the class lives up to its billing. It's still offered as a self-paced class, heartily recommended by me.
LOAD I did several times. The practice of making a page a day sped up my process; posting into a private Flickr gallery and receiving comments from other participants helped me develop a keen understanding of my style. This helped me improve my design process, because I knew what worked for me, so I did it. Less pondering and moving stuff around the page.
Both of these options cost money, but I decided a few years ago I wanted to spend my money on experiences more than stuff, and I got my money's worth with these two. I recommend them.
And if money is tight? Well, go sign up for the stitching seminar!
