Peek at Field Guide

It’s just days until my Big Picture class starts – are you joining me? If you have questions or want to know more feel free to email me or ask here. I thought today I’d share a few peeks at some of the finished handouts!

Here’s part of the week #4 header/first page of one of THREE handouts. In fact (spoiler alert!) I threw in a handout with a few sketches that week just for fun.

Because I do love my happy crafting! Ok, so here’s another peek, this time week #2…

In week 2, we talk a lot about stamping + inks and I threw in a bunch of ideas in the start of the handout to remind you of all kinds of things you can do. In addition to my project ideas, that is!

Here’s one more peek – this is a project in progress for a later week…

I’m having so much fun with my stash, and a big part of my process of developing class is this:

I think about what works, what doesn’t, and what ways I have of making things simple, fun, and easy. I don’t get into 10hour intensive detail type projects (though that’s cool if you want to!) I stick to ideas and projects that are awesome, but that can be done in more manageable amounts of time. I also show you ideas that can be used on or off a scrapbook layout.

So if you don’t do layouts, there will be some projects for you weekly, and you can take my layout ideas off the page.

Just into pages? cool! I will have at least 1 layout per week (usually more) and most anything you see in class absolutely could be tried on a layout.

Almost every idea is highly substitute-able. You don’t have to have any one specific item to enjoy and learn in class!

The sneak you see above with the sun + ocean? that’s a mixed media canvas project I’m breaking way down into a 4-video series over several weeks. There will be a few other mixed media or altered projects (more in later weeks vs early weeks), but not so many that it takes over class.

I’m really looking forward to guiding some amazing crafters through this class – and I’ve already gotten such great emails about it – I’m excited it’s just days away.

Want to learn more or join in the fun? Check out class info here.

Happy Crafting!

note: I say “almost” all are substitutable because (for example) distress ink has specific properties other inks simply can’t copy. But in most cases you can swap something else out, and part of class is that I’m there to help you figure it out!!

  1. Hi May,

    I signed up a few weeks ago and can’t wait for class to start. I’m looking forward to using my stash and having fun doing it! I’ll be printing pictures today.

  2. Me too! SOOO excited to start! Haven’t been too crafty lately, as we’ve moved house (and are still in process), whew! So I’m super excited to get to it!

  3. I can not tell you how excited I am about this class. I have gotten so much out of every one of your classes and I know that this one will be no different. Just can’t wait! Thanks May!!

  4. I am so happy that Tim Holtz sent me here I so love your work, I am a very big fan of Tim’s and Ranger’s and you have so much to teach I hope that you do this again as I would love to attend one so much to learn.

    Thank you,

  5. Thanks for the sneaks! I too have been anxiously waiting for class to start. Looking forward to 12 weeks of crafty goodness. If anyone reads this and is on the fence about the class, all of May’s classes are jammed packed-easily could charge triple (so glad they don’t 🙂 ) So what are you waiting for? Sign up already!

  6. May,
    I can’t wait for class to start. I signed up a few weeks ago and have been loving the sneak peeks of the class. I have already watched the welcome video multiple times. Counting down to Thursday!

  7. I just watched the first lesson! I am an experienced crafter/scrapbooker and learned that I still have more to learn! Love Love Loved the class!

  8. Hi everyone – I’m going to be joining class too – wonder if any new friendships will be formed as a result of this class, even if they’re transatlantic ones 🙂

  9. Oh I really, really, really want to do your class May. What’s holding me back is my 2 reams of paper of unfinished BPS classes!! You never know though, you just might see me there!
