Tutorial Tuesday: Make Your Own Etsy Banner

Happy Tuesday, folks! I've been thinking of trying my own video tutorial for a while now, and I finally got around to doing it last week. As my greatest expertise lies with graphics, I decided to do a simple banner tutorial (This also was something I could do with one hand, leaving me with a free hand to operate the camera. Handy. =P).

Overall, I'm quite happy with it. I got a bit ramble-y in places, trying to fill the silence while I did things, and my phone decided to honk at me in the middle of things. But hey, this is an amateur tutorial video, not fine cinema.

So. Watch, enjoy, and let me know what you think! If there's interest, I'm willing to do this in text and images, as well. I know that would be easier to follow for some...
