So I couldn't resist a little DC birthday sale shopping this week? How 'bout you?
Anyhow, I thought I'd share a few tips and tricks for sorting and installing your Ps & Procreate brushes and another Pattern trick too.
Let's jump straight to it.
Really Kim? This is making you cry?
It was day 2 of my pledge to practice lettering every day for 15 minutes a day.
It seemed like an excellent plan.
Til I began...
I'd just installed the letter builder tool from Design Cuts.
I've scrolled past it so many times. But after watching Stefan Kunz do a LIVE lettering training for Design Cuts I was hooked.
He and Ian Barnard (also amazing) offer 2 tools for letterers. The letter and grid builder.
Stick with me... this will make more sense... soon.
Anyhow this morning I googled how to use the letter builder tutorial.
I watched Stefan's step by step and it seemed doable to me. (almost easy).
Til I began. It was like I'd forgotten how to form letters at all.
It was awful.
Before I knew it... there were tears.
Check it out. No judgment please. : )
I'm a bit obsessed with pretty patterns these days. Especially floral patterns like this set from Design Cuts.
An absolute fav.
In today's quick, zip tutorial I show you how I quickly convert the seamless patterns included in this pack into .PAT files for quick filling of any size and shape.
If you didn't see my Design Cuts class on using Creative Cloud libraries and/or bridge in the timeline section, check out the second video below. ♡
It’s easy to get caught in the thinking of ‘all the things’.
The idea comes in.
The imagination starts to flow.
You pick up your phone and start scrolling for extra inspiration.
The more you look, the more possibilities you find.
Oh, there’s this and this, and what if I did this?
Before long the original idea is lost in the looking and thinking.
Enter inspiration overload.
Leaving you stuck in a possibilities thought-loop.
The only way out (and often the last thing we do) is to TAKE ACTION.
Be still my heart...
is what I was thinking as I scrolled through this special Festive bundle from Design Cuts.
There are so many lovely things inside ... but my favorite is the stained glass alphabet and graphics collection by Everlasting Story.
These papers alone... I mean seriously.
