It’s the last Thursday in January, which means it’s time for your free February 2019 desktop wallpapers! This month’s wallpaper was entirely created in Procreate, with just the dates added in using Photoshop and my font, Miss Magnolia. This month, I used some of the tips from my 3D Lettering in Procreate course to create a fun dimensional lettering feel with a nod to Valentine’s Day 🙂 All of the lettering + doodles were made using my free Procreate Monoweight Brush (available in the Resource Library). The small glitter details in the background were added using my Procreate Metallic Texture KitFor the dates, ‘R’ is for Thursday, to distinguish it from a same-sized Tuesday ‘T’ at a glance. 

The download includes the February 2019 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 February in the future, too!

Happy Tuesday! This week I wanted to share a tutorial from my most recent online course, 3D Lettering in Procreate. The course takes you through 5 beginner basics projects and gets you comfortable with a bunch of 3D techniques. After that, there are 6 advanced projects that combine those basic techniques while adding on new ones for some extra stunning, pop-off-the-screen outcomes. This week I’m sharing one of the beginner basics techniques: the peeling sticker effect in Procreate. Read on to see it all!

If you’re a list maker, doodler or layout lover, chances are you’re familiar with bullet journaling. Now that we’re in the new year, what better way to kick things off than with a bullet journal weekly planner design?! While bullet journaling is traditionally all hand drawn, this week I want to share my spin on it using Adobe Illustrator. This way, if you’re in need of a quick design, you can reuse work already made and print off layouts in a snap. I’m even giving away some free bullet journal design vectors to make the process even faster! So read on to create a bullet journal weekly planner design in Illustrator! Or, if you are ready to take this digital, check out my Weekly Planner Design in Procreate tutorial.

Happy New Year! To celebrate 2019, I thought it’d be fun to ring in the new year with a resolutions checklist in Illustrator, but with a little spin to it 🙂 Instead of just a list of goals – or a list of empty lines staring you down – this one is all about action! Feel free to customize with your favorite verbs, but I’ve got 10 to get you started. Read on to make your own! Or if you are ready to take this digital, check out my tutorial here!

It’s the last Thursday in December, which means it’s time for your free January 2019 desktop wallpapers! This month’s wallpaper was entirely created in Procreate, with just the dates added in using Photoshop and my font, Miss Magnolia. This month, I wanted to go for a soft, wintery ombré feel to ring in the new year. All of the doodles were made using the default ‘chalk’ brush in Procreate (found in the calligraphy brush tab). For the dates, ‘R’ is for Thursday, to distinguish it from a same-sized Tuesday ‘T’ at a glance. 

The download includes the January 2019 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 January in the future, too!

If you’re looking for more Illustrator gift tags tutorials, I’ve got you covered here, too 😉 Read on for how we create these winter watercolor ones!

It’s the last Thursday in November, which means it’s time for your free December 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 change things up and create some reverse/negative space lettering this month surrounded by holiday doodles. All of the doodles were made with my custom monoweight procreate brush, which is available for free in the Every-Tuesday Resource Library. The gold and silver textures are from my Procreate Metallic Kit, available hereFor the dates, ‘R’ is for Thursday, to distinguish it from a same-sized Tuesday ‘T’ at a glance.

With the holidays fast approaching, Spence and I decided to create a special gift for Every-Tuesday readers this year! Introducing the Winter Watercolor Mini Kit! Below, you can download a kit of winter watercolors as transparent pngs which I painted and Spence enhanced in Photoshop for your holiday needs 🙂 Over the next month and a half, I’ll be sharing tutorials using elements from the mini kit and elements from the full kit available here. Let’s kick this off with a winter watercolor holiday postcard!

Today I’m excited to announce my newest online course, 3D Lettering in Procreate! This course will walk you through all of the tools, workflow and effects needed to create believable + stunning, pop-off-the-screen dimensional iPad lettering! The course was created with beginners in mind and includes an entire ‘beginner basics’ section to get you comfortable with 3D essentials so you can feel confident heading into the advanced projects later on in the course. No lettering experience is necessary – I share my trick for using existing typefaces if that’s something you’d prefer 😉 The course also comes with ALL of the original Procreate files from the videos, so you’ll have them as reference if you ever need them. Today I’m sharing the course trailer plus additional details, below!

One major change that came with Procreate’s last update was masking. It might not have seemed major if you aren’t familiar with masking, but it was actually a bigger deal than it probably got credit for. Masking essentially allows for a non-destructive workflow. What that means, is instead of erasing something you don’t need, then having to draw it back in if you change your mind, masking ‘hides’ the part you don’t want and you can bring back the original easily at any time. Pretty nice. You can check out how awesome masking is in Photoshop here and it actually works pretty similarly in Procreate. In this week’s tutorial, I’ll take you through the two most common lettering scenarios where I use masking in Procreate. Once you begin masking, you’ll see the immediate advantages and how much faster (and efficient) it makes creating and editing.

It’s the last Thursday in October, which means it’s time for your free November 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 created the ribbon you see following the exact steps from this Procreate tutorial. All of the details, including the lettering were made with my custom monoweight procreate brush, 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 November 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 November in the future, too!

Happy almost-Halloween! With all the fun crafts that Halloween inspires, I couldn’t let it pass without adding a DIY to the mix! It’s been a little while since we had a craft tutorial and this is my biggest one yet. This week, we’ll create some mixed media 3D Halloween lettering you can use as decoration anywhere! We’ll plan it out + paint it with watercolor, add details with fineliner pens AND add some sparkle to finish it off. I’ll take you through my process of painting 3D, pop-off-the-page lettering, as well as how I plan out flourishing to frame the final piece. Read on to create your own mixed media 3D Halloween lettering!
