This week I get to know Artista who owns ArtistaQ8 and sells downloadable digital paper goods for patterns and scrapbooking. The first thing that strikes me about Artista’s shop is the vivid colours and wonderful range of patterns to choose from.
1. Tell us a bit about yourself and where the inspiration came from to start your Etsy shop.
I own one store that I named “ArtistaQ8” and I sell digital paper goods that are suitable for scrapbooking, crafts, digital background, stationery, and gifts. I was first introduced to digital paper goods in September 2012 and I’ve creating them almost nonstop since then.
Personally, I prefer ‘Digital Ladybird Paper Pack’. I love how the designs and colors are flowing well with each other. They appear pleasing to the eye and attractive. That’s why I choose them over the rest.
3. What is it that makes your shop unique?
I always try new approaches in my paper/pattern designs. If you take a look at my items since the beginning you will notice the different styles and colors. At first, I started out creating single paper patterns until I learned how to design a whole paper pack of not less than 8 paper goods.
4. What’s next in the pipeline?
I’m planning to add more and diverse items to my store. I’ll work on clip arts, perhaps borders and frames, more paper packs, and social media icons. That’s what I have in mind right now.
5. Tell us something about you or your shop that you haven’t previously shared!
I won a small business called ‘Artista, the Graphic Design and Art Studio’, and my online Etsy store is part of this business of mine. I’ve been into Graphic Design since I was 11-12 years old until this day. I wasn’t very serious about it at the beginning and used to create very basic designs. Once I decided I was ready to establish a business, I started to learn more techniques.
Thanks for sharing your wonderful shop with us, Artista. I wish you lots of success with ArtistaQ8!
