We love our sponsors! Today, learn more about this month’s Top Drawer sponsor, their latest e-course, and some sweet giveaway action.
Beth Nicholls is the mastermind behind Do What You Love For Life, a web site that focuses on inspiring you to follow your passions through blogging, retreats, and e-courses. In 2010 she was chosen by Marie Claire magazine as one of the UK’s 16 most exciting young female entrepreneurs.
The latest e-course offering from DWYL, The Art & Business of Surface Pattern Design, is geared toward those who dream of seeing their designs on stationery, fabric, homewares or other products, sharing their art through pattern, and monetising their designs. Beth has teamed up with thriving surface pattern designer Rachael Taylor to make the course a rich combination of design inspiration, practical advice, demonstrations, creative exercises, resources and interviews with leading industry practitioners. Clearly, this is the go-to guide for anyone wanting to develop their design skills.
“I truly have fallen in love with teaching, sharing, and (hopefully) inspiring others,” says Rachael. “I feel very blessed to be a part of the fascinating world of surface pattern design and hope to inspire others on their own creative journeys.”
“I am excited to be working with Rachael to bring this collaboration to you, and will be at your side every step of the way to support you through the course,” says Beth. “As a long-time lover of pattern (and with a secret dream of launching my own stationery label), I was a proud guinea pig as the course was being developed, and I’ll share some of my designs in class.”
Beth & Rachel are also offering a special giveaway just for Scoutie Girl readers!
One reader who signs up for The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design within 48 hours of this post will win a bumper package of Rachael Taylor-designed home and giftware worth $100, shipped anywhere in the world!
The prize package includes a turquoise “Etched Floral” apron (pictured above) with matching tea towel and oven mitt, a black and white screen printed heavyweight fabric canvas shopper bag, plus a set of six cards featuring Rachael’s pattern designs. Everything is handmade with love in the UK.
