The first two days of the week, Monday and Tuesday (if you followed my Snapchat: user tessakoller) you must have seen, most of my time I spent beefing up tessakoller.com. I even decided to be nice and give away some blogging and WordPress hacks, and even my secret Photoshop hacks (I will do more if you missed them). A brief overview though: I revealed my quick way to achieve a plain white background. Soon, I'll give away another tutorial on the quickest way to colorize a black and white photo. If you have a blog, which many of my Snapchat followers do, you will want to stay tuned for these tutorials. The photo below is an example of colorizing a black and white photo. If you noticed, I only colored my subject and left the background black and white. This was just for practice, so don't miss the tutorial which I will reveal this coming Monday! Don't miss!
So, moving on with my Snapchat Style Series (weekly) highlights post; I am so thrilled about what I accomplished on Monday and Tuesday with my website. Did you guys enjoy the fun WordPress tutorials? I hope so. Many people following me on Snapchat I know are using WordPress, so I hope those tips helped you! If you want more in depth tutorials, comment below and I'll make notes to do more. I read two whole books on website design and WordPress (and Blogger) and know a lot of secret little hacks! Throughout the week, my focus was on making custom menus in the footer (bottom) of my website and next week, I'll be redesigning every page on my website and simultaneously working on a catalog and sell sheets. I can't wait to dive in!
From Tuesday evening to Thursday morning, I was out of town and returned loaded with appointments all day Thursday. By Friday, I finally received the custom pattern I created with this painting (below). On Snapchat I showed how I got custom patterns put on beautiful jersey fabric! My partner in crime painted this and I was obsessed, so I made it into a style. The color combos scream summer and just loved it!
Here is a glimpse of a unique convertible dress I am making (photo below).
It's not the best photo but it's a little glimpse of my biggest highlight of the week.
Friday, I have to say, it was a hit! When that custom patterned fabric arrived in the mail, I immediately got designing. Creating custom patterns is something I always wanted to do. If you want something bad enough, you will get it. A talented friend of mine told me about this website that produces custom patterns on various fabrics and I got hooked on it! Now, it's endless the patterns I can create!
I had a great week and am looking forward to what I plan to tackle next week!
