To stand out from the crowd and make a lasting impact, it's crucial to inject a personal touch into everything you create. Embracing our individuality and leveraging your own experiences and perspectives will allow you to carve out our distinctive path.
Find your style, your voice, and your artistic identity. Explore different techniques, experiment with various mediums, and discover what resonates with you. Once you've found your creative compass, stick to it wholeheartedly.
To organise my stolen files I use simple platforms like Apple Notes. I put everything that can be useful to create new things.
I recently revisited the Pinterest platform and was truly impressed by its remarkable algorithm. The platform allows you to create distinct boards for specific topics and add relevant pins. As you engage with the content, Pinterest automatically suggests related content tailored to your preferences.
Moreover, Pinterest offers the convenience of creating both public and private boards, which you can easily share with your close friends. This feature adds a personal touch to your experience and enhances the joy of discovering and exchanging ideas together.
