this month i worked on photos in my etsy shop, Saltwater heart gallery
Since I sell paintings, I use a software called Canvy to create images of my artwork set in rooms.
I started out with the free version and ended up paying to get more room options. It’s absolutely worth the expense since I use it for all of my artwork posts. This really helped to level up the feel of my shop.
They’ve recently added a feature where you can change the color of walls and some items in a room. I love having the option but decided to keep the breezy coastal feeling of the white background.
Since I sell stickers as well, I looked through a few shops that sell them to get ideas. In the end I settled on using my swimming pool in the background.
I love the way this adds to the feeling of my shop. Hopefully, it makes you want to go surfing. There’s still a lot of work to be done but I’m determined to update it for a more cohesive feeling.
The next thing I need to do is update pictures for the mugs and t-shirts. Currently, I’m working on a new series of paintings at the same time which may slow me down a bit. Trying to remember that this is a marathon, not a race can be hard sometimes. But, it takes the pressure off when I keep this in mind.
Thanks for keeping up with my stories and hopefully, I’ll see you at the beach.
