About This Class


Most of us have a smartphone we take with us everywhere.  If you're like me you stay pretty busy on your device checking your social networks, writing emails, engaging various apps, etc.  That means your smartphone needs a case to keep it protected from wear and tear, and the dreaded "dropage" that occasionally occurs.  The problem for me was, that I was purchasing so many cases, it turned into a bonified collection...  I had to dedicate a special area just to store them.  At what point is it just too much???

So I drew the line and had an epiphany.  I could create my own smartphone artwork and place it in any clear case that I have on hand.  Now, with a clear case, I can produce endless numbers of designs that I can store easily in a file folder or with a paper clip!  

In this class, I'm going to show you my super easy process to make your own smartphone case artwork.  It's simple, it's fun and inexpensive.  If you already have a clear case, it's free!  If not, clear cases are easily accessible and reasonably priced.  The best part is that the art can be done with items you have at home right now!!!  If you like the process, you can take it to the next level and purchase other supplies to make more designs in the future.  I hope you'll join me in my studio as I take you step by step.  See you there!  : )
