    Default How did you get started designing and where would I begin?? I'm clueless!

    Okay, so I'm hoping someone will help me out here! I'm very interested in learning how to design but I don't know where to begin. So, all you WONDERFUL designers here at GS, please help point me in the right direction. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I would really like to learn!

    Thanks in advance!!

    I would suggest the brownie scraps program. I don't remember what it is called.... And I'm in bed on my iPod so I can't go look it up. But I know a few wonderful designers got a great start there!

    I would love to do a training course! I love teaching! I might just do it if I have time

    Oh and one other place to look would be Hummie World. She does great teaching!

    Hmmmmm maybe I should get a class together I will have to let you know if I do

    I got my start at Brownie Scraps, they run designer competitions periodically, not sure when the next one is If you are very serious about it, there is a course or membership by Amanda Rockwell (at Scrap Artist I think...) that I've heard very good things about, but its not free

    I know that Jessica Sprague offers a designer course as well but thats not free either (and I'm sorry if I have broken any of this sites policies by refering to another site).

    Ginger herself referred to Brownie Scraps. I would think that alone should say that you are ok!

    Yep your perfectly good
    And Kimberly- I know jen (pixels by jen) did a designer course somewhere. I can't remember which one off the top of my head- but she would be a good person to ask too. You can find out if she liked the one she did.

    Thanks for all the info!! I'm checking out a few places and I found out that Brownie Scraps is doing something in October and they will have more info soon.. I'm not afraid of cost as long as I might be able to recoup in the future. Since I posted this, I have learned how to make a glass button! LOL!! One thing at a time right!
