Tiny Art.

A few year ago while walking in the city I came across a microscopic painting. It was a set of miniature figurines swimming in a puddle of milk.

Intrigued by this art form I wanted to create some myself. I couldn’t find the right puppets until this weekend I took a closer look at my emoji keyboard and realised they had always been there right underneath my nose.

This is how Tiny Emoji Art took off and started a movement of its own.

Tiny emoji's can go on big journeys with the right photos and storyteller.

The Steps.

Here is my story:

First snap some close up pictures from object or situation in your immediate environment.

Next open Keynote and start from a blank new template.

Then import those pictures by tapping on the plus sign at the upper right hand corner and selecting Photo or Video. Find the images in your Photo Library and add them.

At this point you want to add your emoji’s. Tap on the plus sign at the upper right hand corner and select text from the Shapes Library.

Tap on the text box and switch to emoji on your keyboard.

Add the emoji that you need.

TIP: Change the size of your character(s) by tapping on the paintbrush and then selecting Font Size.

To share your Tiny Emoji Art, tap on the three dots in the upper right hand corner and select export.

Choose Images from the options.

Going Further.

Share your creations using the hashtag #TinyEmoji, #TinyEmojiMovies and #TinyEmojiAlbums and inspire the education realm.
