It’s the last Thursday in September, which means it’s time for your free October 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. It’s officially Fall! Since October is the spookiest month in the US, I had to add some cute webs to this month’s wallpaper 🙂 I used my custom monoweight procreate brush for the web details and base lettering, which is available for free in the Every-Tuesday Resource Library. The texture shading was added using the default chalk brush in the calligraphy tab in Procreate. For the dates, ‘R’ is for Thursday, to distinguish it from a same-sized Tuesday ‘T’ at a glance.
The download includes the October 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 October in the future, too!
Pin it for later!
I like to recap the month and look ahead in these wallpaper posts. Here’s what’s coming up in October!
We just wrapped up the last opening of Learn Font Making for the year! I always get so excited after enrollment closes because I love seeing all the new fonts being made 🙂 If you missed out on this one, it’ll be back next summer! You can sign up here to get notified and you’ll get an email as soon as the reopening gets close.
Coming up: Spence and I are working on a new texture kit! I don’t want to say too much yet because you’ll have to see how beautiful, colorful and eye-catching they are (and a brand new medium!). There will be some bonuses just for subscribers when we release it, so be sure to sign up if you aren’t a subscriber yet (it’s free!).
Until then, let’s get to these wallpapers!
