Don’t Take My Word For It

I asked several of my the paying members of the Creative Team for their thoughts on this course

Diane Weber

I worked through the class this weekend and greatly enjoyed it! 
I will probably go through it again, especially the lessons on ‘line.’
1) Why did you want to take the Master Visual Triangles Course?
  • I’ve actually been giving a lot of thought to Visual Triangles, wondering if and how they apply to double-pages.
  • Taking the class gave me my answers, and I know this will help my pages be better!
2) What do you love most about this class/Biggest ‘A-ha” moments?
  • I’m not sure I had any particular ‘aha’ moments, but as a creative person with a logical mind, the class sparked a curiosity, which I’ve experienced in other of your classes as well, as to whether creating by instinct can and will result in similar ends.
  • When I get a chance, I want to go back to a few pages, especially those I might have been dissatisfied with, and see if applying the principles I’ve learned, I can make those pages better.
  • I’ve always been a huge fan of having instincts reinforced by learning!
3) Did the content meet your expectations? 
  • The content more than met my expectations.  After the first session my confidence increased.
  • After the second session it increased even more (and I was able to complete a page I’d been struggling with).
  • At the end, I not only felt more confident but also more curious, and there is nothing better than curiosity to feed creativity!
4) How will the class material change your scrapbooking/artistry process moving forward?
  • I’ve known about and tried to make sure I was creating Visual Triangles before, but now I realize there is more than one way to skin a cat.
  • Color and product type will still likely be my primary method of creating Visual Triangles, but now I can sneak in other ways, hopefully enabling my future viewers to discover little subtleties in my pages.
5) Anything else you want to mention about the class?
  • One thing I really enjoy is the inclusion of Creative Team layouts.  It’s most helpful to me to see the principles applied in differing styles.
  • It helped with that question of how to apply the Visual Triangles to double pages.

Really enjoyed your Mastering Visual Triangles Workshop.

  • You are such an amazing teacher and explain principles in a very clear and concise manner.
  • So easy to take all the information on board.
1) Why did you want to take the Master Visual Triangles Course?
  • Visual Triangles are a brilliant, dramatic and easy way to improve a layout or piece of art – Why wouldn’t anyone want to learn more about that?
2) What do you love most about this class/Biggest ‘A-ha” moments?
  • If the layout or digital art piece you are working on seems ‘off’, add one or more visual triangles and you will see a definite shift in your work.
  • It is an easy and very quick way to ground a piece and keep the viewer’s eye moving around it.
3) Did the content meet your expectations? 
  • The content definitely met expectations.
  • All Anna’s classes give you what you expect and heaps more.
  • Anna is super generous with her knowledge and explains new techniques in a very clear, concise and easy to understand manner.
4) How will the class material change your scrapbooking/artistry process moving forward?
  • New knowledge always brings a fresh perspective and keener awareness to my current way of working.
  • Being able to ‘fix’ a piece of work I may be struggling with, using new techniques, will enable me to add more interest, value and dimension to any layout going forward.
5) Anything else you want to mention about the content?
  • The numerous examples in this course of the many variations of Visual Triangles, gives one plenty of food for thought.
  • You will never be caught short with a ‘what can I do to fix this layout or piece of art’ moment again.
  • Visual Triangles are one of the least used, but most powerful of the Design Principles.
  • We all know what triangles are – Let’s use them for our own benefit, and that of the viewer!

1) Why did you want to take the Master Visual Triangles course? 
  • I am always looking for new and better ways to improve my pages.
  • I have heard you talk about the visual triangles and figured if you offered a course on it there must be a lot more to it than just color.
  • And there was!
2) What do you love most about the class/biggest a-ha moment? 
  • Visual triangles are NOT just about color!
  • There’s also line, shape, focal point, and product type.
3)  Did the content meet your expectations? Please elaborate.
  • Your courses always meet and exceed my expectations.
  • You explain everything very well and since it is in video form it can be backed up and watched again if need be.
  • There are lots of examples shown and explained where the visual triangles are, what they are, and why they are placed where they are.
4)  Anything else you want to mention about the content?
  • I thoroughly enjoyed the course.
  • I will definitely be using what I have learned in future pages.
  • I will be thinking a lot more about where, what, and why I place the elements that I use.

WOW! Watching the first video, I was thinking to myself that I thought I knew what visual triangles were.
  • I did, but there is so much MORE to them.
  • I love the explanation/differences of Balance and Visual Interest that equals excitement.
  • In one of your examples, you specifically show how the attention shifts by moving the elements – This is super helpful
  • The idea of placing elements at intersecting points is a game-changer.
                                       Before                                                                                                                                After
1) Why did you want to take the Master Visual Triangles Course?
  • I LOVE to learn!
  • Your promo referred to “More than just Visual Triangles.
  • And being familiar with many of your classes, I just knew this would not disappoint.
2) What do you love most about this class/Biggest ‘A-ha” moments?
  • There is so much more to Visual Triangles than I thought.
  • I knew them to be the obvious: colours and very similar elements but there is so much more to consider.
  • My biggest A-ha moment is your advice on placement of elements.
  • Game-changer!
3) Did the content meet your expectations? 
  • As do all of your classes, it exceeded my expectations!
4) How will the class material change your scrapbooking/artistry process moving forward?
  • It has already changed!
  • When working through my pages, I now draw out the triangles and look for areas of intersection, which greatly helps me place my embellishments.
  • This was always a struggle.
  • Although I continue to be a slow artist, the methods from this class make the process much more enjoyable and gives me a direction.
5) Anything else you want to mention about the content?
  • I love the multitude of examples and especially from the Creative Team.
  • You included artists with different styles, which helped me relate to the examples.
  • Each artist used different types of product, which also helped!
