April 2018

It’s the last Thursday in April, which means it’s time for your free May 2018 desktop wallpapers! This month’s (May flowers) wallpaper was entirely created in Procreate, with just the dates added in using Photoshop and my font, Miss Magnolia. I used my custom monoline procreate brush for the entire piece, which is available for free in the Every-Tuesday Resource Library. The glitter details you see are 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 May 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 May in the future, too!

You may have seen this style of lettering floating around instagram and created in Procreate on an iPad. In this week’s tutorial, I share how to create the same effect, but in Illustrator. By using Illustrator, everything can be infinitely rescaleable since it’s vector-based. We’ll utilize some features you may not be aware of that you can use for future work, too. This is a slightly advanced tutorial, so the pace is a bit quicker. If you’re new to Illustrator, allow some extra time (or check out some beginner tutorials first). Read on to create colorful gradient lettering in Adobe Illustrator!

In celebration of Spring, I thought it would be fun to keep the floral party going into Procreate! The last couple of weeks we painted watercolor florals and this week we’re drawing digital ones 😉 In this week’s tutorial, we’ll plan, customize and create custom floral wreaths in Procreate. I’m using an iPad Pro (12.9″, 256GB), Apple Pencil, Procreate and my custom monoline procreate brush for this (available for free in the resource library). The color palette shown in the video is also available below if you’d like to use it. Let’s get started!
