Best day! Announcing my brand new workshop with Big Picture Classes!


This is so amazing. I have worked so, so hard at this. And it came at the most amazing time. I created a wonderful, vibrant brand new workshop with Big Picture Classes. It's called Art&Design and it's all about balancing Art Techniques with good Design. The class will run over 4 weeks and every week we will be looking at a new design principle. If you love my videos and scrapbook style, you will LOVE this class. 

The class by numbers:

  • 4 weeks long (Registration is now open. But it closes October 1st)
  • 5 Layout videos per week (around 90 minutes of video every week)
  • 1 Weekly Bonus video where I will chat about techie stuff (I love that)
  • 2 Video chats (in real life)
  • Weekly handout - a beautiful 8x10 pdf
  • Weekly bonus products. This will blow your mind. In total I created 23 cut files and 6 printables. And these are beautiful, hand made (drawn, painted) and unique. AND they are included in the class.



I can honestly say, it's the most beautiful work I have ever done. I am so happy about it. I am so, so thankful to Stacey Julian for giving me this opportunity. She really gave me something to focus my mind on this past 8 weeks. Thank you Stacey! (and Brandi and Kayce)(insert red hearts here)

And YES! I have a bonus something for you if you use ANY LINK from my blog to register for the class. 

I am really thankful for affiliate links. It's what helps me pay for hosting my sites and equipment. It helps me to do what I do. And I an thankful if you buy my workshops through my links! 

DO THIS:
So, as with all my other classes, if you buy the class through any link on my site, email me your receipt from Big Picture Classes to wilna71 (at) yahoo (dot) ca (not com). I will in return email you back a sincere thank you and a link to a special page (please don't share it) I created for a workshop in Germany and Barcelona. It's one of my favorite pages I have made and would love to share it with you.  The page has a 20 minute video and I explain some cool techniques. I hope the girls from Spain and Germany will still love me and get the class through my blog anyway. 

Go to the classroom and see and read all about the Art&Design workshop. I will be here to answer any questions. Go and watch the little promotional video I created and just all the fun things surrounding the workshop. I am so so so happy right now. And so excited.

Please be sure to follow Big Picture Classes on Instagram as I will be a guest Instagrammer next week and I will share lots of sneak peeks of the class.

Oh, and of course I am giving away one spot in the class today. Just leave a comment. yay!


Much love
Wilna Furstenberg

Alexandra Halde said...

Hello Wilna, I am so glad that you are back on your lovely blog and with a new amazing class. I honestly think that I am your biggest fan!! I have watched each of your scrapbooking videos many times for a few reasons: they help me focus when I am creating art myself or make doing daily taksks much more enjoyable. Your positive and casual energy as well as your humor and cute accent bring a spark of happiness when I have a not so great day. Considering your new class, whether or not I get the free spot, I will be a part of it and I know that it will be very important in my art and design education.
Thank you Wilna, A lot of love from Quebec, Canada!
