The Good Life Review

Wednesday, November 9, 2011

Look at this sweet shirt I made! Using my newly discovered favorite technique, the reverse applique, as pioneered by Amy Tangerine.

Since I was sharing my new shirt today, I thought I'd take the chance to write a quick review of The Good Life class, where I learned how to make it.

What I learned/liked:
  • This awesome reverse applique technique
  • A new watercolor technique
  • The lovely Amy! She's a sweet lady, there's no denying that :)
What I did not like:
  • The price point $45!!
  • Aside from the 2 techniques listed above, I didn't get much out of it. The class was more idea driven and let me show you how I put this page together-esque. Which is great, but I can see all of that for free on Amy's blog
If this class comes around again, and you're considering it here's what I think in summation:

Before spending the $45, purchase Amy's Get those Creative Juices Flowing class from Big Picture Classes. It's the same kind of style/vibe. I felt like both classes didn't have a lot of meat (i.e. techniques) to them, so to speak. But have more "big picture" (no pun intended) type ideas and philosophies behind them.

I think what drews me in is Amy's amazingly graphic style. I love the look of her pages! But I don't want to pay to see how she makes them.

The format was also a bit disjointed. I wish that all of the Week 1, Week 2, etc. content was together in one place. Rather than all of the videos are on one tab, all of the handouts on another, the weekly message on yet another.

While I'm a superfan of all things Amy Tangerine, and absolutely adore her products, I most likely won't be taking another class.

E-mail me if you have any specific questions!

Oh, and if you're wondering what EC1V refers to, it's my old post code from when I lived in London =)

  1. I agree with your analysis completely - I expected more for the price. At over $11 per lesson, I just didn't feel like I got the sort of original content I was expecting.
