While my heart will always be tied especially close to traditional art supplies, I love the possibilities Procreate now provides. I love being able to experiment with new brushes and paint in a way that can feel so realistic…digitally! I have a bonus section of my Watercolor Lettering in Procreate course that goes over the basics of watercolor leaves and florals in Procreate. If you haven’t checked the course out yet, I wanted to give you a little sneak peek this week with a winter watercolor bouquet in Procreate! I hope this will inspire you to create your own versions and play around with either the default water brushes or this set – read on to see how!

If you’ve been here before, you already know I’m crazy about watercolor – traditional or digital. A couple years back, I shared how to vectorize watercolor textures, so today I want to share the process I use to vectorize watercolor lettering. We’ll start by creating our watercolor lettering traditionally using Arteza watercolor brush pens. Next, we’ll scan it into the computer, then finish it up by vectorizing in Illustrator. Read on for the full supply list + tutorial!

It’s the last Thursday in October, which means it’s time for your free November 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. I started drawing some leaves for this one, and then I just couldn’t stop! So here is a leafy explosion for November πŸ˜‰ The lettering and doodles were both made using my ‘Mono Marker’ brush from my Font Lovers Procreate Lettering Brushes.Β For the dates,Β ‘R’ is for Thursday, to distinguish it from a same-sized Tuesday ‘T’ at a glance.Β 

The download includes the November 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 November in the future, too!

I wanted to try something new this week! I thought it would be fun to show how to create something analog/traditionally, then how to recreate that same artwork in Procreate.

I got my hands on these watercolor brush pens a few weeks ago and I haven’t been able to put them down! One of my new favorite ways to use them is by making colorful feathers and adding in details using gel pens. Since they blend with water so perfectly, there are so many ways to create colorful patterns and blends. In this week’s tutorial, I’m sharing my process for creating your own colorful feathers using watercolor brush pens. Read on for all the supplies + details!

One of my favorite discoveries of the past year is a product called BRUSHO. It’s essentially concentrated, powdered watercolor, and it’s awesome.
