Ever since I got my iPad last year I've been on the hunt for the perfect Procreate brush for my needs. I purchased a few and downloaded some free ones, but none were PERFECT for me.
So off I went and started creating my own brush…
Whether you want to just relax, escape from reality or pursue your dream to become the next best lettering artist. You gotta start somewhere.
Why not here!
Did you know I HATED Tombow brush pens when I first started using them? My reasons were totally my fault. I used them on sketch paper, regular copy paper and even watercolor paper 😬😱 Which totally ruined the tip. Find out how not to do what I did.
Are watercolors something you're interested in? Maybe you're looking to purchase some paints, or already have a set that you paint with. But is your set any good?
I love this new font and I hope you love it too. I decided to call it MOON because of my son. He is a curious 3 year old with a a love for looking at the moon before going to bed. So as I was coming up with a name for the font I naturally thought of him.
And then I had to create all the moon and stars symbols. Because what kind of moon font would it be if it didn’t come with it’s own galaxy.
New worksheets are finally here! These are PERFECT for beginners, or those of you who just enjoy tracing letters. I hear it's great for relaxing too.
Each page is dedicated to one stroke, letter, or number so that you get maximum practice with each one. Those wrist muscles need to develop over time, and with repetition, you will see progress.
I've got about a month left till this babies' due date!
But since both my previous kids were a little early, I'm thinking it's more like 2-3 weeks.
Which is not much at all, and I can't wait to meet this little boy or girl? I'm definitely beginning the nesting phase of my pregnancy and just getting all the things ready is the only thing on my mind right now. That, and of course listening to endless birth podcasts. I'm mentally preparing for that part as well because it is a challenge.
As beginners we want to be perfect right away, believe me, I thought I was. But among many struggles and self-doubt comes the shaky brush stroke. You know, when you want to create smooth upstrokes or nice downstrokes but your hand seems to be vibrating. Yup, that's it. That's the shaky hand.
There can be many reasons why this happens, but, if you don't have any health issues that could be causing this, I have a list of 3 reasons why your hand might be shaky.
We all suffer from this, whether you are a seasoned artist or beginner, we all have moments of doubt, and with today's Social Media it's even harder because we are surrounded by everyone else doing the same thing we are doing and we just can't get away from our phones. It's an addiction really.
I've been there, deep in the sinkhole of envy, and let me tell you, it took a long time and a good slap in the face to climb out of there. Let me tell you how I did it.
