I Was Not Always The Successful Designer And Entrepreneur That You See Today.
Back in fall 2017, I was stuck between committing to several more years of pharmacy school (although I already had a bachelors degree in marketing) and starting some kind of successful business.
For years, I designed and hand-painted backdrops as a side hustle. Gradually, I picked it up full-time after leaving school. However, I quickly realized using all my time to paint was not creating the income that I wanted.
So after lots and lots of research to find a design software, I finally found a software called GIMP. Prior to this, I was the greenest of newbies only using Microsoft products for my designs. But after many tears and hours, I taught myself how to use the new-found software.
With every design, I learned more and more and got better and better. So it's been a long, gradual process for me. I realized nobody really teaches how to use GIMP nor how to design backdrops with it, so HERE I AM.
I made it my goal to help other designers (or other people who are just simply interested) cut out the guess work and time spent on teaching themselves. I put together an extensive training that I know you will enjoy and learn from. Follow my program from start to finish, and you will have what you need to start creating your very own backdrop designs.
Are you ready for me to help you get started? If you answered YES, click the link below, and I will see in the membership group :)
If you are not sure about the membership, just enter your email for the free digital download. You can test out the download process before signing up for the monthly membership. Sign up ONLY when you are ready to get plugged in. But keep in mind, the price may increase by the time you decide.
Is the software included in the price, or will I have to already have the software?
The software used in to create the design templates is GIMP, which is a free software that you can download. You can also use the downloads with Adobe Photoshop. Get Photoshop by clicking here. GIMP can be downloaded by clicking here. If you are not familiar with designing in either of these programs, I would recommend taking the Designs Made Easy course by clicking here.
