Watercolor Swatch Ring DIY for Quick Reference

Over on Instagram, it is just full of collaboration and ideas. If you aren't following me yet, hop over and click that follow button! I post daily and share lots of tips, tutorials, and favorite accounts.  One such idea spawned from the creation of Amy Natsumi Roberts of @see_amy_draw.  She posted on her stories little tags with watercolor swatches on them. I loved this idea! I adore color swatches. Typically, I have swatched all colors in a sketchbook, but this was too fun not to try.  So I'm going to show you how to make your own watercolor swatch ring.

Digitizing Artwork – Pixelmator

There is no substitute for the feel of creating analog art; that is, art with traditional materials by hand. What do you do in a digital world? How do you get reproductions without turning yourself into a machine painting daisies forever? How do you get that perfect Etsy listing image? I will answer all these questions and more with this digitizing artwork series.

Why Pixelmator

Today we are going to talk about Pixelmator. I saw one of my #instafriends needing help with digitizing her artwork. (Craftysuelau wave!) She is an amazing artist! She does these beautiful loose watercolor florals that I aspire to one day. Check our her instagram @craftysuelau. I couldn't accept a world where she couldn't share that art in the way she wanted. With my background in graphic design, I felt I could give back to her for all the wonderful tips and tutorials she has shared with everyone.
