New Course! 3D Lettering in Procreate

View Course

May 2018

It’s the last Thursday in May, which means it’s time for your free June 2018 desktop wallpapers! This month’s wallpaper was entirely created in Procreate, with just the dates added in using Photoshop and my font, Miss Magnolia. I decided to use a soft, simple palette this month with some simple foliage doodles. I used my custom monoline procreate brush for all of the foliage, which is available for free in the Every-Tuesday Resource Library. For the dates, ‘R’ is for Thursday, to distinguish it from a same-sized Tuesday ‘T’ at a glance. 

The download includes the June 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 June in the future, too!

A while back, I shared how to type along a path in Illustrator, but what if that path is circular or closed? How to you get the text to run perfectly along the outside or inside of the circle? And if you start on one side, how do you nudge it just slightly without ruining everything? These are some questions that evaded me longer than they should have when I was starting out. Circular text is important! It’s great for logos, icons, stickers and custom rubber stamps just to name a few. Read on to master circular text in Illustrator and never wonder again!

With Mother’s Day right around the corner, this week, we’re DIY’ing a hand lettered watercolor Mother’s Day card! My mom’s birthday is actually on Mother’s Day this year, so I had to think of something extra special 🙂 Cue masking fluid, brush pens, a watercolor effect and some lettering enhancements! In this week’s video, I share my trick for protecting your paint brush with masking fluid, how I cut down watercolor paper for greeting cards, use brush pens to create a watercolor texture and use regular lettering supplies to add final details. Pick up all the supplies shown and catch the full video below!
