A note before we begin: In April, we asked our former students to share their unique and amazing Nicole's Classes stories with us. And share they did! Today is the second installment of this series (see the first here), where each student will tell you in their own words (and with examples of their own work!) how Nicole's Classes has helped them on their creative journey. Enjoy! My Nicole's Classes Story Britney Johnson Hi, my name is Britney Johnson and this is my story!

Enjoy! whitneyrhoden I am so thankful for every last thing I have learned from Nicole's Classes! I can't remember exactly how I stumbled upon this golden nugget of a website, but my goodness I'd be nowhere near the place I am today without it.
Back to School Pattern It seems like just yesterday we were posting about popsicles and summer, and now it's all backpacks and pencils and classrooms. To help you ease into the transition to fall, I've created a free fun school themed seamless pattern you can download and use in Illustrator!
Happy Floral Friday everyone! Today we're posting some amazing arrangements from our Floral Arranging 101 class taught by Chelsea Fuss (btw, have you read about her cool new adventure farming in Europe?). Like all of our classes, we're always so inspired to hear what students will do with the new skills they've learned, and this week does not disappoint! Our first arrangement is from international student Sara Cangueiro. Sara joined the class from Portugal and created this truly stunning bridal bouquet. We're blown away not only by her beautiful arrangement, but by the beautiful photos as well. You can see more from Sara at her her blog Hoje Ă© Especial. Nicole's Classes Student Work
5 Do's and Don'ts for Your Floral Shopping List I have a lot of people ask me how to get that natural, soft, wildflower look for flower arrangements. Most of it is in the selection of your flowers! Edit ruthlessly and only choose stems that you really love that will add something to your composition. Obviously shopping straight from the garden is ideal, but if you can't, here are some guidelines when you are shopping your local grocery or florist for stems.

At any rate, a new month means new free wallpapers for your desktop and mobile devices! And this month we chose a theme that will help us really stretch the sun out as long as possible...
