Announcing Our First Online Class: Intro to Photoshop + 3 DIY Projects
After an overwhelming number of you guys expressed interest in having us teach a Photoshop 101 class, we’re pumped to announce that it’s actually happening! Starting today, you can sign up for our first-ever Skillshare class for just $14 (use code BRITCO to get $5 off). The class will feature an in-depth overview of Photoshop, from how to use adjustment layers to what all of those tools actually do. But to us, learning software is not very practical if you aren’t actually applying it to real-life situations.
That’s why we’re also going to show you three DIY projects you can accomplish with your savvy new Photoshoppin’ skills. We’ve paired this course with a special edition Brit Kit that has all the supplies you need to complete each project! Here’s what it looks like:
So what are these projects? Good question.
1. Once you’ve mastered how to set type in Photoshop (we’ll address issues such as kearning, leading, etc), we’ll show you how to transfer that type to the analog world by creating a “Say Cheese” board (get it?) to use for all of your dinner party extravaganzas.
2. Instagram is all the rage (we know, we know), but there are better places for your photos than your phone’s camera roll. We’ll show you how to take them into the real world by showing you how to perfect your filtered photos then transfer them onto a canvas tote that you can sport each day.
3. To wrap up all of your skills, we’ve got a more complex project to end with: custom greeting cards! The fun of this one is not only creating the card design itself, but actually turning your handwriting into a digital font for even more customization.
Hi, I'm Brit, the founder and CEO of Brit + Co. I'm a young mom of two, tech nerd and design-inclined lady who has a zillion hobbies and curious about... just about everything! My mission from the beginning has been to unlock women's creativity and courage to try new things so that they can find the path to their true passions.
If you lack a certain way with words, then perhaps you can rely on showing how you feel this holiday season with an artful greeting card you can make at home! Brit dropped by our crafting studio where we teamed with Camp by Walmart to create a choose-your-own-adventure holiday card tutorial. In the interactive video, it's up to you to decide what type of card you want to make — sentimental, or stylish? Three-dimensional, or keep it simple? After you've selected your design vibe, Brit helps you assemble it all together so your last-min card is ready to send. Get ready to pick up a few new DIY tricks when you watch the video now!
