I am pleased to share date information on the next two StepOnPins eclasses– including my long awaited Tablet Class, held just after Beginning Photoshop Elements Class by the Pixeladies!
Introduction Photoshop Elements March 2012– Registration begins on February 16, 2012 for the March 5-25, 2012 Beginning Photoshop Elements Classby the amazing Pixeladies! Here is a mini-description for this introductory class:
Through online lessons, videos, and webinars (real-time online meetings), you will learn the tools that allow you to perform magic with Photoshop. We will focus on selection tools, their function, and how to use them. We will introduce you to the wonderful world of layers. Working with layers is much easier than getting out the seam ripper!
This is a true beginning class using PSE, no experience with this program is required. This class fulfills the prerequisite for my Tablet Design Class.
Tablet Design Class for Quilters– Carla Barrett’s Tablet Design Class is scheduled for April 16-May 5, 2012. This class teaches students how to use their tablet, combined with Photoshop Elements program, to design quilts, quilting lines, pantograph designs, wholecloth quilts and more! Registration will begin on March 26, 2012. *Please be aware that this class does have a prerequisite- Beginning Photoshop Elements Class or equivalent proficiency with using PSE. Please note that StepOnPins.com is offering a March Beginning Photoshop Elements Class by the Pixeladies. If you are new to PSE and/or need a refreshment class, please sign up for the March Class.

Here are a few class examples showing you what you will be learning. The class will cover using your tablet to design on quilts like my designs shown below:

Quilt top by Cindy Bartosewcz, shown above. Please not that I have used a Sherry Rogers-Harrison digital design in both quilts for my design inspiration.
You will also learn how to create other designs, including a wholecloth quilt. Here is a wholecloth quilt design I drew on my tablet:
