Happy Tuesday! Hope you all had a great weekend! It was around 80*F all weekend just outside of Atlanta and perfect. Spence and I put new mulch around our home for the first time, added some solar lights to the walk up to the front door and sat on our patio each morning sipping delicious lattes from our recently purchased espresso machine. Wish we could do that every day 🙂

With it getting warmer out and summer noticeably on the way, I was thinking after completing the yard work this weekend that I could really go for a popsicle! I had a request not too long ago to add a few more cute illustration-type tutorials, so this week, a watercolor popsicle it is! We’ll create everything in Illustrator, then add in some pretty watercolor texture to finish it all off – a popsicle kind of is frozen watercolor if you think about it, so it totally works 🙂 Let’s get started!

Pin it for later!

The watercolor textures used in the two examples were abstract texture numbers 4 + 8 from this texture pack. You can pick up some free ones here + also check out the typography tutorial using the same ones 🙂

  • fun tutorial, thanks!

  • Thanks for this fun tutorial. I am learning so much from this site 😉

  • Gorgeous watercolor washes!
    Might I ask what kind of paper you used to make the original (orange-yel-green for example) washes?
    It looks like maybe hot press WC paper..?
    Thanks T

      • 300lb single sheet is the way to go if you don’t want it to bow. Or get a watercolor block that is 140lb.

  • Awesome tutorial! Thanks so much for doing these!
