YOU’RE READY TO DIVE IN AND TURN YOUR FAVORITE HOBBY INTO A PROFITABLE ONLINE BUSINESS.

i see you there, dreaming of escaping the 9-5 drudgery and building a life you love around the watercolor art that brings you joy.

I see you there, because I’ve been there, too. Creating art is such a source of joy and fulfillment - so why wouldn’t you want to build a business around a life-giving hobby? Well, maybe...

→ You’re wondering if you have what it takes or if your skills are up-to-par.
→ You aren’t sure you have the business “know-how” to make this thing work, not to mention the time it’s probably going to take
→ And even if you had all this knowledge, you want to know that your efforts are genuinely going to lead to fruitful results.

YOU’RE WORRIED YOU CAN’T DO IT ON YOUR OWN.

Because building a business, especially around art and that whole “starving-artist” stigma, seems a bit risky.

the course

The Watercolor Artist’s Etsy Blueprint Bundle is your step-by-step roadmap to moving from paint and paper to products and profits.

Four different modules make up this comprehensive blueprint that will make you confident in your watercolor creations through focused tutorials, teach you to digitize your artwork and create patterns and designs in Adobe programs with ease, hold your hand through tech tutorials that show you how to build a strategic foundation for your Etsy shop, and give you the exact formulas and plans to market and maintain growth with your shop. Wherever you are in your watercolor biz journey, this blueprint is designed to meet you there and guide you to success.

Starting at the very beginning, you’ll paint along with me to gain confidence in your watercolor skills and ensure you’ve got the basics mastered - from loose and realistic florals, to painting white objects, working with shadows and highlights to build depth and even moving to more complicated details like landscapes and architecture.

Afterward, you’ll get a complete overview of how to scan and digitize your artwork, format it for use with my preferred Print-On-Demand wholesale printers who will print your artwork on almost anything you can imagine so you can resell it in your shop to your customer in a variety of formats! I’ll also show you to create unique patterns and designs that can also be translated to physical goods. It might sound a bit tech-y and overhwelming at first, but I guarantee that by the end of the module you’ll have the tools, skills and checklists you need to confidently tackle the printing process.

Then, we’ll walk through the step-by-step process of laying a foundation for your online Etsy shop before you ever even open up the doors. Getting the foundation of your business, including your niche and branding, is key to a successful longterm business plan.

Finally, I’ll hand over my tools, tips and tricks for successfully managing your Etsy shop and marketing it to maintain consistent growth. From social media guides, to email marketing and SEO, I’ve got you covered. You’ll finish the course with a solid plan in place that you can follow to the tee moving forward. Not only that, you’ll have access to me in our private online community, monthly Q&A sessions and 24/7 support so you’ll never have to go-it-alone.

the doors are open this week only!

i'm ready

to guarantee your jumpstart to success

I’m well aware that all of this probably sounds aaaa-mazing, but you’re wondering if it’s a worthwhile investment or if it can really work for you (I 100% get it! It is a big investment!) But with a 90-day money-back guarantee and a step-by-step plan that anyone can follow, there’s essentially no risk! (Harkening back to school days - you show me your homework and no results, and I’ll hand you back your investment, no questions asked)

I’ve been in your seat (and often find myself there still) with an amazing course offering in front of me, but fear of handing over my hard-earned cash for something I don’t get immediate results for. Thanks a lot, Amazon Prime. But in fact, I’ve spent over $10,000 in my business on educational courses and tools and I can tell you one thing for sure - I’ve never regretted a single penny. As long as you show up, are willing to put in the work, and trust the process - online learning opportunities are where it’s at. Especially when you consider the amount you’d spend in a traditional learning setting where one semester can be upwards of $10K.

Online education isn't some short-lived fad or trend. Far from it. It's the way that learning has evolved, from university curriculum to Skillshare or Udemy… and yep, all the way to that YouTube tutorial you just bookmarked. It makes the entire learning process so much more affordable and accessible to all, and that's something I can stand behind.

90-day money back guarantee if you don't see results

Worksheets, Templates, Swipe Files and Guides

short on time? i get it!

Between work, classes, family, kids - I know its a hectic world we live in and there are 10,000 other things vying for your attention. And while I am not going to lie and say that this is the path to overnight success or millions in the bank tomorrow, I do promise that if you can carve out small chunks of time to dedicate to yourself and your dreams, you will see steady and significant results.

Between monthly live Q&A office hours, a community to share and grow with, and my step-by-step roadmap to follow, we’ll make it manageable and actionable.

The thing is, if you don’t make time for yourself and your passions, you'll be in the same position a year from now. There's a popular Chinese proverb that says: “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” My business started off as a small side hobby that was built upon small chunks of time that added up to make a monumental difference. I've distilled that process into this Roadmap, taking out everything you don't need, and getting you results with the things that you do.

I need this. let me in!

answer:

The course doors will re-open in May 2020!  

02. how long is the course?
answer:

This self-paced course is comprised of FOUR modules, each with varying numbers of lessons within. While some students may be "weekend warriors" and devour content like a good Netflix binge, others might want to take it a bit slower and in small chunks. There is no wrong way to complete the course, and with a few hours per week, it should be completed in around 12 weeks (3 months).

03. is the content applicable only to watercolor artists?
answer:

This course is created specifically for and caters to watercolor artists. Module 1 is solely comprised of watercolor tutorials and techniques and Module 2 is designed to teach watercolor artists how to digitize their artwork within the unique context of watercolor paper. However, Modules 3 and 4 are more broad and can be applicable to visual media artists of all types.

04. do you offer a money-back guarantee or refund policy?
answer:

I offer a 90-day money back guarantee. That's three whole months to get into the program and make progress with your online watercolor business through Etsy. I'm confident that within that time, you'll see results. In fact, if you don't see results, simply email support@thiscreativenest.com and "show your homework" (it's kinda like grade-school, right?) to prove that you've worked through the program and put in the effort, and you'll be refunded every penny.

05. when can i access the course materials?
answer:

As soon as you enroll, you'll have access and will be able to get started!

answer:

This is a paragraph box to explain the answer!
