Congratulations to Maja who has won herself the August Storyteller Collection!
Some of you may be curious as to how long I spend creating my collections so here is the answer..
The amount of time I spend in Photoshop/ Illustrator combined with other related designing activities such as the initial planning, hand painting, stitching, stamp making on my silhouette… I spend no less than 40 hours and not more than 60 hours putting it together.
But! That is not all! In addition to the actual design process there are the most important factors such as working with my team, collecting layouts and making the magazine. There is also the tedious task of listing the collection as well as all the social media, blog and newsletter writing I need to do – so add about 20-30 hours for that too!
Not terrible I think – if it took any longer, I probably wouldn’t enjoy doing it but it is an exhausting AND exhilarating experience every month.
