It’s hard not to see watercolor textures everywhere these days! And it makes sense why – they’re beautiful and add such a personal, handmade touch to anything they’re on. That’s why in this week’s tutorial, I’m pairing them with my favorite thing – typography. The same rules apply if you’d like to add watercolor textures to hand lettering, too for an even greater handmade look. As a bonus, I’m including 3 free high res watercolor textures so you can play around with your own type or hand lettering. Let’s get started!
How to Add Watercolor Textures to Typography
Here are those free bonus watercolor textures:
The font used in the tutorial + preview images is Heartwell, which can be picked up here. I also just released my own brush script font, Tuesday Script, available here! Brushed script fonts work amazingly with watercolor – check out this roundup if you’re looking for others! 🙂
Pick up the paper texture pattern used in the tutorial here, called ‘concrete’.
Like the watercolor textures and want even more to play around with?
