Scrapbooking with a Grid Design

Hi there! While I'm working on part 2 of my watercolors for scrapbookers post I thought I'd just share that I'm taking a class at Big Pictures Classes, Art and Design, taught by Wilna Furstenberg. Well, the class started today, it's 5 weeks long and there are 5 videos every week. I'm almost done with the content for the first week (like all of Wilna's classes, this one is also jam packed), and what can I say, it's lovely. Beautiful designs, beautiful pages, just a joy to watch and as always, so inspiring. So week 1 is all about grid designs. I use grids now and then on my pages, but it's not one of my go-to designs, I guess because I love layering and not measuring. I'm challenging myself to make my grid pages look more like me. I've already made one layout that turned out good, but it's cleaner and emptier than my usual style. I like it, but it's not completely me:). I'll probably post a process video making that page cause it was really fun, but for now here are some pages I've made using a grid design (or a variation of it).

Wilna's class at BPC is open for registration till October 1st BTW:)
Thanks for visiting!

It's funny I didn't know you had a blog until you mentioned it in the video. Then I had to google your name to find it. You really should link it to your videos, which I love, love, love! Glad to find even more beautiful inspiration here!
