It’s Tuesday! Time for another tutorial 😉
A few years ago, I shared how to create a pattern letter effect using Adobe Illustrator and I randomly came across that tutorial and wanted to give it a try in Procreate, too. With a few masking tricks and a custom diagonal line pattern brush, pattern letters in Procreate were born! This tutorial is one of my most advanced ones to date, so if you haven’t taken my free Procreate 5X for Beginners course yet, you’ll want to watch the masking module in that first. Once you understand the steps, though, this is a super fun effect you can apply to your typography or even abstract shapes for some really unique outcomes!
Happy Tuesday! I’ve got something a little different for you this week based on a convo Spence and I had a few weeks ago. Behind the scenes, Spence has been redesigning our website and we always bounce ideas off one another for the different pages. When it came to our contact page, we were thinking of adding a surprise animation once someone hits ‘send’, so I put together this quick idea and we both loved it. It’ll be a little while before the design is live (since Spence is doing everything from design to code), but I’m already excited for this easy paper airplane animation to take flight on the page.
Happy early St. Patrick’s Day! This week, I’m sending some extra luck your way with a realistic watercolor 4 leaf clover in Procreate! Read on for the full tutorial!
I have a confession: I’m terrible at keeping any kind of daily planner. I feel like I’ve tried them all and it always starts out with the best intentions, but by month 2, I’ve already fallen off the bandwagon. What has always worked for me, though? A folded up piece of paper with a daily handwritten list of to do’s. Nothing complicated, nothing bound and no digital calendars (that simple check mark or line striking through the item in ink is so satisfying!). If you’re like me and want that plain piece of paper to look a *little* nicer, this week’s tutorial is for you! Print it out, keep it digital (easily reusable!) or adapt it for other purposes (grocery list/packing list/scheduler, etc.).
Happy Tuesday! We had a few 70*F weather days in February here, so springtime has been on my mind a lot lately. In the spirit of the upcoming season (for those of us in the Northern hemisphere), I’ve got a spring themed sales tag this week for you! You can use this for any kind of promo throughout the year, or change up the messaging to create a fun gift tag for any personal occasion, too!
