Featured photo by @4theloveoftoys Weekend Hashtag Project: WHPstripes This weekend, the goal is to take photos and videos that capture stripes created by colors, textures and surfaces, as in this featured photo by Sara Harvey ( @4theloveoftoys). Here are some tips to get you started: Head outside to see what stripes nature has to offer, like the natural lines of your local flora or the way streams create bands through a landscape. From repeating red lockers in the hallway to the way office buildings cast shadows at high noon, there are plenty of stripes in your daily life. Try to notice them — along with the lines created by highways and streets on your commute to and from. Wide or narrow, straight or curving, stripes are a classic element in art — from fashion to painting to DIY crafts. Take photos of work that explores the many forms that stripes can take. PROJECT RULES: Please add the WHPstripes hashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.

Video by @fuzzyfawn There’s one woman behind Fuzzy Fawn Wildlife ( @fuzzyfawn). “My dad nicknamed me Fuzzy the day I was born because of my white hair that stood up in every direction. I’ve been Fuzzy to everyone I know since,” says the volunteer who is licensed by New York State to rescue and rehabilitate wildlife. “A fawn that is sickly has a fuzzy coat, so after all of these years being called Fuzzy, my name finally fit!” Six years ago, a deer who had been struck by a car entered Fuzzy’s yard. “Long story short, it took me four hours to find help for this deer that was suffering. I wasn’t going to allow that to happen again.” The very next day, she set out on a path to help these animals in need. “Life at Fuzzy Fawn is hectic, sad, happy and fun,” says Fuzzy, who received nearly 400 calls from people seeking help this fawn season. “Instagram has been a tremendous help. I’ve been able to reach out to other rehabbers in different states, we bounce ideas back and forth about treatments for the wildlife in our care.” Watch our story to see more of what life is like for Fuzzy and her family of fawns.

Video by @craftyslimecreator An old toy turned into a new passion for 16-year-old Alyssa Jagan ( @craftyslimecreator). After seeing lots of slime DIYs pop up on social media, Alyssa, who lives in Toronto, realized she had all the necessary supplies to make her own. “I’ve been making slime and goo with my mom ever since I was little,” she says. “Slime became really pretty and visually pleasing in 2017. In the past, it didn’t look as nice, but now slime can be made in a variety of colors, scents and textures!” Inspiration for new varieties comes from different parts of Alyssa’s life. “I like to wander around craft stores and pick up different products to see which will work in slime. I am also inspired by other ‘slimers’ in the community,” she says. “I am currently obsessed with ‘Stranger Things,’ so I will probably make some ‘Stranger Things’-themed slimes.” Watch our story to see more, and follow along on IGYearInReview as we reflect on the most memorable Instagram trends of 2017.

Photo by @makeupisart_x While Ellie Costello ( @makeupisart_x) paints magical scenes on her eyelids, it feels like she plants them. “I never ever plan a look and then go and get the flowers,” explains 20-year-old Ellie, who lives in London. “I always get some flowers first, then envision the look around the flowers. I find that creating as you go along always allows your creativity and imagination to run a lot more freely — I like just letting the magic happen.” Ellie is part of the beauty community on Instagram who made the eyelid their canvas of choice in 2017. “It is great when you can collaborate with other artists and discover new amazing talent to follow. There is always so much creativity on Instagram, it is very inspiring.” Watch our story to see more from Ellie, and follow along on IGYearInReview as we reflect on the most memorable Instagram trends of 2017.

Photo by @nornea Starting today, we’re introducing new ways for you to stay connected to your interests on Instagram, with the ability to follow hashtags like equestrian. For 19-year-old Menea Johansson Djärv ( @nornea), dressing up means felt hats, capes and a unicorn horn for her beloved pony Norina 🦄. As a child growing up in Sweden, she was inspired by vivid fairy tales and medieval markets. “It was beyond exciting to see adults dress up and pretend they lived in a different time,” she says. Now, cloaked in nature, Menea creates her own equestrian daydreams that reflect a real-life kinship with her creatures. “I want [my horses] to see me as a best friend they can trust and respect, just like I do with them. Most photo shoots are spontaneous. The most challenging part is to focus on the horses and the camera at the same time. The most fun part is to feel adventurous and invincible.”

Video by @annettelabedzki Starting today, we’re introducing new ways for you to stay connected to your interests on Instagram, with the ability to follow hashtags like asmr. Once Canadian artist Annette Labedzki ( @annettelabedzki) learned there was a community of people mixing paint for sensory effects, she wasted no time. “My first video was late at night, I used wax paper, I had my pajamas on,” she says. Through asmr (autonomous sensory meridian response), Annette, who has painted full time for 30 years, found new ways to be inspired by the materials she’s always worked with. “There was a point where I had mixed every color combo that I could possibly think of. And one night I thought, ‘I wonder what would happen if I poured paint into one of those molds and froze it?’ I’ve never had so much fun in my life!” Whether she’s crushing frozen paint, adding glitter to a mix or creating on a miniature canvas, Annette loves how sharing her videos opens up a dialogue with others. “I listen to what they write, and then I go from there.”

Photo by @impact.brothers Starting today, we’re introducing new ways for you to stay connected to your interests on Instagram, with the ability to follow hashtags like gymnastics. Some twins finish each other’s sentences, Marcos and Alejandro Ponce López ( @impact.brothers) finish each other’s flips. After seeing break dancers perform in their hometown 14 years ago, the duo from Torre del Mar, Spain, dedicated their lives to becoming professional acrobats. What’s been their biggest gymnastics accomplishment to date? “Everything we have learned has been self-taught. Hand to hand [where one performer, balancing on the hands of the other performer, does a handstand], was very complicated for us, since it is a very complex discipline. We have some friends who know this discipline. One day we were lucky to meet with them, and in a few hours they explained several tricks. After that, we practiced each day to achieve that movement.”

Photo of @flourshop by @elizabethrenstrom “People eat with their eyes, so who wouldn’t want to eat a rainbow? Or a unicorn?” asks Amirah Kassem, the baker and founder of Flour Shop ( @flourshop). 🌈🦄 Five years ago, Amirah couldn’t afford a website and started her business on Instagram. “For many years that was the only way to place an order,” explains Amirah. Last month, she opened her very own brick-and-mortar shop in the SoHo neighborhood of New York City. Her number one inspiration when dreaming up her bright and playful treats? “My childhood! There are so many things we tend to forget as adults — like how fun imagination and blowing bubbles can be — so I try to hold on to that eating-ice-cream-for-breakfast mentality.” Watch our story to learn about Amirah’s affinity for all things rainbow and unicorn, and follow along on IGYearInReview as we reflect on the most memorable Instagram trends of 2017.

Featured photo by @salvarezphoto Weekend Hashtag Project: WHPclassic The goal this weekend is to create photos and videos that display a timeless quality. Whether you’re nostalgic for a past era or inspired by traditions that stand the test of time, share what classic means to you: Look for local scenes that conjure up familiar feelings — like a family picnic, a cozy coffee shop or a commuter dashing through the city. To make details ageless, be deliberate about what you do (and don’t) show. Don’t take any gesture or expression for granted. Instead, pull out the patterns in how people and animals interact. PROJECT RULES: Please add the WHPclassic hashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.

Video by @made_by_helga Visual artist Helga Stentzel ( @made_by_helga) believes in the beauty of imperfections. “All these ‘alleged’ defects give subjects their uniqueness and, often, transform them into objects of art,” says Helga, who lives in London. Since childhood, she’s been a creative thinker and an artist, and her account reflects her out-of-the-box ideas. She names simplicity as her top inspiration and calls herself a minimalist. “With the help of just a few lines, I manage to turn an ordinary object into something unexpected. In my work, there are no complex textures or shapes; I consciously try to avoid them, so as not to distract the viewer’s attention from the beauty of ordinary things.” Watch today’s story to see more of Helga’s creations.

Fast-forward two year and Zooey and her family — originally from Tokyo — live in Los Angeles where they adventure, play and take tons of photos, highlighting Zooey’s sweet and edgy styles, often accompanied by her staple expression of hiding behind a pair of sunnies. “Zooey has always had this no-emotion face,” says Mai of Zooey’s signature look. “Sunglasses also help when taking photos.

When did you decide that?” Zooey: “At school. I’m creative, so I think I can be a designer.” Mom: “😱” Watch our story to learn more about Zooey’s world.

Today we’re introducing two new tools to help you hold on to your favorite moments from Instagram Stories and share them in new ways that help you express yourself. Stories Highlights is a new part of your profile where you can show more of who you are through stories you’ve shared. And to help you build highlights, your stories will now automatically save into a private Stories Archive so you can easily relive them. Now you can group stories into highlights and feature them on your profile. To create a highlight, tap the “New” circle, choose stories from your archive, select a cover and give it a name. Your highlight will appear as a circle on your profile that can be played as a stand-alone story. Moving forward, your stories will automatically save to your Stories Archive. To see yours, tap the archive icon on your profile, then tap on any story to watch it. From there, you can add it to your current story, share it as a post or add it to a highlight on your profile. Only you can see your archived stories, and you can turn off auto-archiving at any time in your profile settings. To learn more about Stories Highlights and Stories Archive, check out help.instagram.com. Today’s updates are available as part of Instagram version 25 on iOS and Android. Video by @yelldesign
