Art of the Apps 3.0 - Kelly Sill

app scrapbooking


Are you a digital scrapbooker looking to document your photos in a mobile environment but with a Photoshop experience? Are you a mobile, app-scrapper looking for a way to do it all in one app–build your page, import photos and digital elements, and edit photos?


This is THE CLASS for you! Apps 3.0 with Kelly Sill will show you how! And it will blow you away!


In Art of the Apps 3.0, we will be focusing on four main apps: Affinity Photo, File Manager Pro, iCloud Drive and AnyFont. We will learn how these apps work together so you can use your LAYERED PSD FILES, along with your favorite digital kits, edit your photos, and install your favorite fonts to create scrapbook pages anywhere you have your iPad with you.


Throughout this workshop, I will be sharing with you tips, tricks, and processes that work for me while using these apps. It doesn’t matter what your skill level or scrapbooking style is, by taking this class, you will come away with a solid understanding of how these apps work together, giving you the confidence you need to explore them even deeper on your own, and develop a workflow that suits your needs.

You will learn how to use iCloud Drive and File Manager Pro to download, unzip, and organize digital products from your favorite designers. Kelly will share her tips on how these two apps can be used with one another, allowing you to access what you need to create your pages on the go!

From the user-interface to opening a template or beginning a new blank document, you will learn all about the basics of the app. Kelly will walk you through the steps on how to bring your photos and digital elements into your layout, who to edit a photos within your layout and lots more! It’s the kind of day you’re going to want to call in sick from work!


Day Three: While we continue to explore the features of Affinity Photo, such as shadows and styles, we will also focus on working with text.

Frequent Questions

Q. Is Art of the Apps 1.0 and 2.0 required in order to take Art of the Apps 3.0?

A. No it is not. This class differs from the other Art of the Apps Workshops because the main app we will be focusing on (Affinity Photo) is only available for certain iPads and iPad Pros. It is completely taught on the iPad only.


Q. What kind of platform will the class be taught on, Apple or Android?

A. The class will be taught on the iPad Pro. The Affinity Photo App is only available for certain iOS iPads/iPad Pros. However, on Day One, we will be making references to the Mac and PC desktop computer while using iCloud Drive (please note that while there will be links for iCloud Drive for use on a PC, none of the videos will feature a PC computer).


Q. What kind of software/applications do I need?

A. While we will be covering 4 apps in the workshop, the system requirements we mainly want to be concerned with are those for the Affinity Photo App. In order for you to use this app, you must have the following (this is copied directly from the Affinity Photo App description in the App Store):
