Design Your Life Class

I have booked myself onto an online class with Cathy Zielske which begins in October called Design Your Life. It's about using the principles of graphic design and incorporating them into scrapbook layouts. I already know these design elements but it doesn't hurt to go back to the classroom (so to speak) and brush off the cobwebs. Plus it will be a good discipline to make an album worth of design-styled pages. It's like with art, I'm better when I'm enrolled as a student. I find myself sketching more often outside of the class. When it's the summer holidays, I find my sketchbook gathers dust.

Anyhow, before the class begins, Cathy has set us a warm up project for homework; A 12x12 layout with 12 squares detailing who we are etc. So as well as completing my mini book, I've put together this layout in preparation. I'm now really looking forward to the class starting - roll on October :)
