December 2017

It’s the last Thursday in December, which means it’s time for your free January 2018 desktop wallpapers! I’ve been spending a lot of time in doctor waiting rooms the past few months (my husband, Spence, has been dealing with hip + hernia issues for over a year now), so I always take my iPad with me to doodle. This month’s wallpaper was entirely created in Procreate, with just the dates added in using Photoshop and my font, Miss Magnolia. The glitter you see is from my Procreate Metallic Texture Kit, available here. For the dates, ‘R’ is for Thursday, to distinguish it from a same-sized Tuesday ‘T’ at a glance. 

The download includes the January 2018 desktop wallpapers in two common resolutions: 1280x1024px and 1920x1080px, with and without dates. I’ve left the year off of the ‘no-dates’ versions, so you can use it for any January in the future, too!

There’s a new change coming to Every-Tuesday for 2018, so be sure to read below to stay in the loop/get the head’s up!

New Year’s Eve is less than a week away! To celebrate, I thought I’d cheers you Every-Tuesday style with a couple of cocktail glasses created in Adobe Illustrator. This tutorial is very doable if you’re a beginner, but the pace is a little quick, so just a head’s up. We’ll be in Illustrator CC for this one since we’re using the live corners option for smooth contours on our glasses. If you’re not using CC, this can still be done, but you’ll want to visit your appearance palette > stylize > round corners. Ready to get started? Full video + all the colors used are below!

Before we hit the end of the year, I was brainstorming ideas for winter themed illustrations, and mittens seemed perfect. I love how easy they are to make your own: design/decoration, shape and color! In this beginner-friendly (but some prior knowledge will be helpful) tutorial, we create a pair of cute winter mittens in Adobe Illustrator. Follow exactly or edit them to make em your own! Illustrator CC is recommended since we make use of some new features to speed up the workflow, but the result is still achievable in older versions. Read on to see how!
