    What a fabulous class! I wasn’t sure if I wanted to take it, but decided I should. And I’m so glad that I did now. I have some work to do on getting all that I learned down, but I will keep using many of the techniques. Thanks Anna!!

    I wasn’t going to take this class because I thought I knew it all. Wrong! Still scratching my head about some things but it’s coming along. But I think the class would work for beginners as well. Part of my problem was preconceptions about how things ought to be done getting in may way.

    • Anna Aspnes

      Haha! Sometimes stepping ‘outside the box’ can provide new perspective. And Can I help with any of the questions you have? I will be doing more of these to build on these technique which should also help 🙂

  5. Tina Wilson (verified owner)

    First, I love taking Anna’s classes as I always learn something. This class is among my favorites so far. I took a lot of notes, although the class comes with a pdf with instructions. There were soooo many great tips and techniques packed into this mini-class. I’d say the content is not mini at all!

    • Anna Aspnes

      Thanks so much Tina. Love that you loved the class. So appreciate your time leaving your experience with my classes.

  6. Nancy Peralta (verified owner)

Anna lays the groundwork techniques needed and demonstrates these in an easily understandable pace. If you want a dynamic perspective shift that carries forward in your design toolkit, this class is for you.

    • Anna Aspnes

    A great class, I love Anna’s style of teaching, she makes everything so clear. I learnt some great new techniques and I really want to see where she goes next!

      Thanks Viv! Good to know there’s still plenty I can teach my advanced Photoshop users in this ‘sport.’

    A great class and my all-time favourite so far. Well organised, a nice pace, and caters for both Photoshop and Elements users.

    • Anna Aspnes

      Thanks for the review Jami. So glad you enjoyed this class – More to come!

  10. Sonya Fuller (verified owner)

    This is a great class format. Anna does a deep dive into one technique and shows multiple ways of using the technique to create something that will fit into your scrapbooking style. I’m an experienced Photoshop user and was a little hesitant about taking the class but I’m so glad I did because I learned something new! Even if you’re new to Photoshop you will be able to follow along as Anna goes through each thoroughly. I highly recommend this class!

    • Anna Aspnes

      Glad you enjoyed the format Sonya. The goal is always to share a technique and then provide inspiration for using these same skills in different ways 🙂
