Getting Creative*

If you haven't already noticed, I have started to get a little more creative with my photos, creating mood boards and just trying to make the theme of my posts pop. I initially started to just use a free grid app and split my images up on my Instagram account, but let's face it after a while that just looks the same and boring. 

When you really get into blogging and taking your own flatlay/ fashion photos you start to understand the importance of editing them yourself. The lighting, the effect and filter's you want for your theme etc. So I decided to take the plunge and opted for the basic Adobe Photoshop CC package, and I have never looked back since! 

Using brush strokes, simple images and even erase tools, you can create just about anything. For newbies and those that aren't all that confident with the tools at hand, you can buy certain elements, such as the quirky quotation above, Instagram templates or simple brush strokes. Just look for svg files for sale, png files, or browse through etsy stores and alike. 

You can even start to create your own elements much like the X below, simply using different brush styles and colours. Then save it as a png/ jpeg file and away you go. 
Mixing elements, quotations, your photos and more together is the best way forward. Yet I know that having that blank screen staring at you and not knowing what to do with it all or where to start can be daunting, I get a lot of my inspiration from Pinterest, it is such a great tool for sharing your creations and finding new content to mix up your ideas. Sometimes looking at other creations can make you realise that what you have created is just pure crap, much like one of my first creations below.

There is just far too much going on, nothing really goes together, the images are blurred and to be quite frank it looks like a child put it together. I cannot even believe I am sharing this with you now! 

Once I sat back and thought about it I was able to create something much more sophisticated, one that really showed my blog style and hinted at my monthly lookback. 

If you have a theme, stick with it and make it clear with your images. Try to keep everything consistent, you don't want it to become too congested and all meld into one. 

Once you get into the swing of things, you can become pretty confident with your work. For example, I am pretty damn proud of the vogue mode image below! All sass gives off the girl boss vibes I wanted it too and portrays a level of organisation with it too. 

Have you got any tips or creations you would like to share? I would love to see/ hear them!
