Real Simple Social

Having a social media tool that helps me get back to creating is important. That is where Real Simple Social comes to rescue me from the daily drudge of posting content on my social media platforms.

Real Simple Social

A few months ago I was using another brand of social media scheduler and they changed the platform and now charged for the feature I used daily. I shared inside Empire Builders on Facebook that I was looking for a social media scheduler that wouldn’t break the bank as I’m a starving artist and can’t afford a large fee every month. lol.

That is when Steven Lacey from Real Simple Social contacted me about using their platform. This is a service that he offers his clients when he does their social media. He has agreed to allow me to use this in exchange for my sharing a few blog posts about Real Simple Social.

Once Steven set up a user account for me I took my time to look around and see how the platform operated. I found that it was very easy to navigate and add my Social Media Profiles. There are a lot of options and I think every major platform is included.

Since I wanted this tool to schedule content it was time to see how that worked. Set up Content Groups this helps to better organize content. The idea is that if you want a post to go out on multiple social media platforms create a grouping of those that you want to use. It was easy to set up the Content Groups and I can have several to choose from inside Real Simple Social.

Next was selecting the content I wanted to send. Since I create blog posts and videos that are great to see more than once in a year I chose a few to schedule out. For my social media, I decided to post the same message every 14 days for 26 posts. Which should get me through to next Nov with that series of posts.

A great feature of Real Simple Social is to set Evergreen content. This is done by selecting the button to add to Evergreen. Then you create a posting schedule and the content added to Evergreen will automatically post. The more content you have the more for Evergreen to use.

There is so much more that Real Simple Social can do. It also tracks how much interaction a post gets. Gives you the option to republish and so much more.

I’ve been using Real Simple Social for a couple of days and I think I’m really going to love using this platform. I’m very glad that Steven reached out to me so I could check it out.

To have great social media content that you don’t have to worry about daily try Real Simple Social. What I love about this platform – I can create content once and schedule it to post throughout the year with one post inside Real Simple Social. Other platforms I had to sit and create a separate post for each time I wanted something to publish. Using Real Simple Social has now freed up more of my time to create content and not have to spend time scheduling.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. I do hope you will come back for another visit soon to see more blog posts. Most feature tutorials on art. If you are looking for something feel free to contact me as I seem to have a plethora of useless knowledge. LOL

How to Alter a Metal Tin

Want a fun beautiful gift? Here I’ll show you How to alter a metal tin. Using the Calico Collage Digital images – Spring Peacock, Rinea Foil, Brutus Monroe ink and Glam from Tattered Angels.

How to alter a metal tin

While out shopping at Dollar Tree I found a set of two metal tins. When I saw these I knew I could alter these with a few supplies I already had on hand.

Supplies used in How to alter a metal tin:
Glossy Sapphire Rinea foil
Spellbinders Circle Die
Butterfly Die
Calico Collage Spring Peacock Journal Kit
Calico Collage Spring Peacock Domino images
Metal Tins – Dollar Tree
Brutus Monroe Detail Ink-Raven
Vagabond Machine Inspired by Tim Holtz or other like die cutting machine
Self-adhesive Rhinestones
Glam from Tattered Angels, Clear, and Chandelier
Paint brush

How to alter a metal tin

I began but selecting a page from the Spring Peacock journal kit from Calico Collage. Once I had a page selected I used my Vagabond and Spellbinders circle die to cut out circles.

Selected images from the Spring Peacock Domino digital images from Calico Collage, trimmed off the white edges.

Die cut a beautiful butterfly out of the Blue Rinea foil using my Vagabond.

Using Glam from Tattered Angels I painted the back of the circle and placed it on the top of the metal tin. Applied glam to the domino-sized peacock image and added to the top of the circle.

So that the butterfly wouldn’t lift and get damaged I applied glam to the back and then placed it on the top of the other images.

Glam dries pretty quick. Using the Chandelier Glam from Tattered Angels I then coated the top of the tin.

Lastly, I applied a few self-adhesive rhinestones to the butterfly and off to one side.

For those that like videos here is the video on How to alter a metal tin:

I just love how the images sparkle because of the Chandelier Glam from Tattered Angels. These altered metal tins will make a great gift. I’m thinking of adding some candy and maybe a piece of jewelry inside.
