This is a big week guys. If you follow me on Instagram, then you've probably noticed the 10 day countdown to my online store opening tomorrow (eep!). Below is a little Q & A on my creative process and, at the end, I share some sneak peeks before my shop officially launches!
1. What am I working on right now?
I am so busy behind the scenes getting my little online shop ready for it's grand opening tomorrow!
2. How long does it take me to create a project?
Of course, this varies from project to project. Regardless, it's so important for me to set deadlines for myself because I'm constantly tweaking little details in the quest for perfection. For example, I started my 10 day countdown on Instagram so that I wouldn't back out of my September store opening goal!
3. What are my favorite things to create with at the moment?
Photoshop is my staple, always. I also love my digital die cutter and, well, sequins are pretty high up on my list of essentials.
4. How does my writing/creating process work?
Some of my best ideas come to me when I'm not actively brainstorming, like when I'm taking a shower or washing dishes. Since I never know when inspiration is going to strike, it's important that I capture my ideas right away. I like to make little sketches or use the Notes app on my iPhone. In fact, my favorite place to write blog posts is while I'm in bed using my phone.
5. How do I become inspired and stay inspired?
I am constantly inspired by the all of the talented makers and creators that generously share their work and offer their support to other artists.
6. What’s my signature style?
Handcrafted paper and pixels. I love playing with white space and scale. I love typography and really graphic elements. I love gold and pink and sequins and other playful, feminine touches. I love trying to convey big ideas with just a few words or images.
Thanks for taking the time to get to know me a little better today. Tomorrow, when the shop launches, check back here for more information on special coupons and promotions. I'm beyond excited and have been sharing sneak peeks on Instagram all weekend. Take a closer look below at my some of my favorite offerings, including this amazing die cut design:
