Progressive Card Designing – Stepping Up A Simple Design AECP Level 3 Post 5

Hey Crafty People!

For my last Level 3 class I chose Progressive Cardmaking from Justine Hovey; there are so many amazing classes on Altenew Academy so it’s really tough to choose which ones to do. I did try to choose a mixture of classes that I was inexperienced in, (eg. mixed media & Zentangling,) and classes that will help my professional development, and this class is definitely one that falls into that second category!

I wanted to practice creating designs and using techniques that are accessible to everyone, no matter their skill level & experience. I am passionate about helping others connect to & explore their own creativity and that is true no matter their skill level.

For this class I focussed on techniques that could be accessible to someone who has limited experience and then could be ‘stepped up’ to build upon those skills.

I’ve created a video with three ‘mini classes’ to create the three cards that I’m sharing today, and showcasing ways to step up your card designs using different products & techniques.

Professional & Personal Development

I absolutely love creating detailed, ‘show stopper’ cards and I admit that sometimes I do spend extended periods of time working on specific projects, but I think it is also so important to show less experienced crafters that they can work up to those levels.

When I first began crafting, I remember looking at the AMAZING work I would see on Instagram and thinking that there was no way at all I could ever compete or create anything near to it. Through hard work and practice I am confident that I am in a completely different place today than I was a year ago, so now I look forward one year and excitedly ask, ‘where will I be then?’

One year ago today, I posted this photo of a card that I had made. The sentiment is by Altenew, in fact I believe this may have been my first Altenew stamp. I remember being so proud of this card, and although I would do things differently now, I am still proud of it because it represents my growth as an artist.

Thank you for stopping by today, if you’re new here I’d love it if you could follow my blog and maybe even check out some of my other social media links.
