Hey friends! Hope you’re doing well on this Tuesday in the middle of summer!
I’ve been doing a few new things of late on social media, and while I know some of you aren’t on Instagram, I thought you might like to know what you’re missing.
I do know some folks who’ve created IG accounts just to go view things – no posting or anything, and with a name that wouldn’t be recognizable so no one will find them. (ha!)
I’ve been looking for a while for something to shake up what I’m doing; biz has gotten stagnant, YouTube seems to be dying for creators like me (all these years later and views just stay at the same number)….but one place that does seem to be reacting and growing for me now is Instagram. But growth in numbers isn’t my goal – finding more people who I can help by inspiring their artistic ventures is what I want!
I’m doing lots of experimenting with types of content on Instagram, and since you come to my blog for tutorials, I wanted to be sure you don’t miss out on content that you might like.
What’s a tiny tutorial?
My YT tutorials are “big” ones – longer video, voiceovers, the teaching of concepts, mediums, and techniques. The “tiny” version of those: a single “little” idea that may have an outsized impact on your art! I look at questions I’ve received in emails and comments, noting the pain points of other artists – then try to answer them.
Go see all the tiny tutorials here (they’re collected in a “highlight” yellow icon at the top of my page), and click on the one you’d like to view. I add the ones from my main IG page as well as those on my fine art page; I’m trying to make them on Thursdays and Saturdays. My inner graphic designer loves these assignments, heehee!
For one example:
And a little project for today…
I’m a little late at getting to the new Colorado Craft Company release….but maybe the wait was worth it? While this isn’t a graphical tutorial like those above, I did take some pics along the way while working on this 5″ x 7″ watercolor card….this would work for Copics or others too. I’m using the new Color My World set from Colorado Craft Company along with The Artist.
