Dimensional Details The Expanded Edition

One of my all-time favorite classes at BPC (along with Finding Photo Freedom, of course) was Nic Howard's Dimensional Details workshop in 2010. That class is being re-run as part of the 4Experts series this year, and I couldn't resist joining in again. Even though much of the material is the same, Nic has added additional information & techniques as well as created new layouts following the step-by-step directions from the original class.

As is often the case with classes at Big Picture, there was a pre-class handout and instructions for a layout. Here's a fun layout I created showcasing a photo of Robbie holding one day's worth of mail packages he received after a recent eBay shopping spree.
The directions called for a cluster of embellishments, but I loved how this dimensional Pooh sticker looked all by itself.

Anybody else joining in for this round of Dimensional Details?

I thought long and hard about joining this class. I really wanted to. But the timing was just not right for me - way over committed this Summer! So ultimately, I took a pass.

Wonderful colors! I need to finish a few outstanding classes before I take on any new ones.

What a fun page. I thought about taking Nic's class too - I just wondered about how much new content there could be - since I can have a short attention span at times. I'm sure I'll see so many blog posts about it that I'll be kicking myself. Oh so many classes, so little time.

That is quite a haul! Love your title and Pooh! :) I took this class the last time and loved it. Some of my favorite layouts ever were created. But I couldn't swing it this time. I wanted too....but job hunting is my focus right now! I hope you'll be sharing more creations with those of us who missed out this time.

A seriously cute page! The title gave me such a smile.
