I learnt a lot this year, but one thing that I’m really happy about is the fact that I think I have finally figured out my creative style for Instagram. I have been consciously creating content for the platform since 2018, but until this year I have never felt that I had a specific style or niche. 2020 has been a real year of self discovery in terms of the way my content has developed, and I’d love to share that with you…
At the beginning of the year I was definitely struggling with my Instagram inspiration, so from January until March I stuck with a pretty simple pink theme. It wasn’t consciously Valentine themed, but I think it sounds a lot better if I pretend it was… Hahaha.
This was a pretty long theme that I created to try bring some laughter to the Coronavirus quarantine. The idea behind my Household Princess theme was to create a paradox of everyday tasks and glamorous attire. To be honest it mainly just documented my decent into lockdown based creative insanity!
This theme was my first step into the world of Photoshop, and I spent hours and hours teaching myself how to create these fantasy types of images. It was the first time that I really felt like I had found my own creative style and wasn’t trying to fit into the mould of what an “Instagram Creator” should be creating.
Alice In Wonderland
I have been wanting to do an Alice In Wonderland themed shoot for such a long time, but felt that I would need to buy a lot of props to make it look authentic. Once I learnt the basics of Photoshop, I realised that I could create anything, and that meant that I could build my dream Alice In Wonderland theme.
This Is Halloween
Believe it or not, this was the first time that I have fully embraced Halloween over on Instagram. I’ve always leant towards Autumn themes over October, rather than getting into the spirit of spooky season. This year, though, I decided that I could do some really fun things if I mixed Halloween and Photoshop. This was definitely my favourite theme of the entire year!
I started my Christmas theme at the beginning of November, which in hindsight was jumping the gun just a little… but what can I say? I’m a festive person. This was so much fun to create because I got to make all my fantasy Christmas images into reality.
I have so much planned for my Instagram over the next year, and can’t wait to share it with you – so make sure that you’re following me and don’t miss out!
