Some Color Schemes I designed. (I didn’t take the photos of the wedding flowers, I grabbed them off google images.)
Hey Everyone! I think you guys are SUPER important! And I want your opinion on something and I also want you to see this (the more people who see the more the word will get out there!) I’m working on starting my own hand-made business. I don’t know if any of you have tried doing this yourself, but it’s extremely difficult and it’s hard to get advertised. You have make a million decisions by yourself and pretend like you know what you’re doing haha. And it first you don’t get paid much….definitely can’t depend on it as an income. But hey that’s ok right now I’m just kind of doing it as a hobby (at least with the hand-made business.) 🙂 But I hope to make a little dough someday with my craftiness and cute ideas. (My photo business is a different story, I plan on making an income with that). Yes I have multiple small businesses I’m working on….it’s very stressful, trust me, but also exciting! Anyway…I didn’t get on here to rant to you.
I want to see what you guys think of my hand made cards (I will also have photo mugs and rosaries that I will photograph), my images of my cards (including the way I composed the image) and my logos! My business name, for right now at least, is called Rural And Rustic. I grew up in MT and I love..well..rural and rustic. haha I am not finished with my logo. I am thinking about putting two little antlers on each side underneath it or little leaves or pine cones or something. My square logo that just says R&R (Rural and Rustic) is finished I think…but if you don’t think so feel free to say so! Also be honest, if you think it’s too much like R & R (Rich and Rare Canadian Whiskey) please tell me! The square logo is for my profile image on Etsy and possibly tags for items. The rectangle one with the fantasy like font (the one I might add a little antler or pine cone drawing to) is for a sticker label for the backs of my cards and maybe under my mugs. Also will go onto a business card once I design that. Please let me know if you think the font is ok…I’m a little worried it’s a little too “fantasy” esque and doesn’t feel “rural and rustic.” But I am hoping adding a little illustrative drawing touch to it might help it out.
Please keep and eye out for more on my etsy page once I start getting products uploaded. And feel free to refer me to friends and family that might want a gift for someone or a card for someone. I put a lot of time and care into my hand-made products.
IMPORTANT NOTE: EVERYTHING HERE IS COPY RIGHT AND ALREADY EXISTING ON ETSY UNDER THIS BUSINESS NAME. So no copying, please. Thanks.
A creative girl who needs a little assistance 🙂
I will be graduating from college in about year…and I’m beginning to panic! What do I do with an art degree? AH! HELP!
Some helpful facts about me:
I chose art because it was the only thing I felt I could really do, plus I love it and I want to do what I love. Photography is my thing, and Photoshop is my friend. I enjoy beading and making rosaries. (although I think it would be quite difficult to do that for a living!) I am a pretty good painter, though, photography is probably my best art form and it comes most naturally. I’m fairly good at design. I like making announcements, cards, and posters. I’m also interested in fashion and make up. I am a people person and I’m friendly and easy to work with. I work hard, especially when it comes to art! I spend hours at a time in the studio (working on paintings, drawings, sculptures) and at my computer working on photos or digital drawings (etc).
I just want to find a fairly good paying job but I have no idea where to begin! (Plus I’m going to have to start paying off loans when I graduate so I will definitely need to get a job right out of college if I can find one!) Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!
