I’ve had this idea for quite a while, since launching the site, actually—wanting to share a little “behind the scenes” of what goes on here at reneepearson.com. To be honest, I feel a bit like the real Wizard of Oz, hiding behind a curtain and madly pushing buttons, spinning wheels and pulling levers to make all this happen.
Anyway, here I am, opening up my crazy design and development process for you. I must admit it’s a little scary. Why? Because I don’t want you guys to know just how scattered I really am when I’m creating. And my creative process is the same, whether I’m working on a piece of art, a scrapbook page or a class. I start broad and whittle away at it until it’s manageable and presentable.
So, taking a deep breath I’m opening the door to my digital studio and saying, “Come on in!” (more…)
Christmas in July is over. The snow has melted and it’s plain old hot August again. (At least it’s steamy here in Atlanta.) There’s still a bit of business from “July” we need to take care of.

“Everybody loves patterns.” That’s the tagline at the Repper site. And everybody loves a pattern giveaway! Today, three lucky readers will win a copy of Repper, courtesy of our Dutch friends at Studio Ludens.
Repper is the fun pattern-making tool we wrote about a couple of weeks ago. With Repper, you start with an image and end having created dozens (or more) repeating patterns.

How would you incorporate a Repper pattern into a creative project?
