Creating stickers

I’m very excited to start working on my next Skillshare class on designing a Weekly Spread template on Procreate. For this class, I’ve created stickers for students to get started with designing their projects. I really enjoy creating these stickers. I hope you will look forward to the class. Meanwhile if you haven’t already, please check out my previous class on how to design your own Monthly Spread template using Procreate here. Have a great week!

Weekly Spread: Design your own template on Procreate

Weekly Spread: Design your own template on Procreate

Hello everyone! I’m happy to announce that I’m now working on my next Skillshare class on designing a Weekly Spread template on Procreate. This time, we will be using the digital stickers that I created for the class. It will be fun! Meanwhile if you haven’t already, please check out my previous class on how to design your own Monthly Spread template using Procreate here. Thanks!

Here is an example of a Weekly Spread I designed on Procreate:

Also, I’m giving away a 12-month Skillshare membership. If you have followed me on Skillshare, created a project and gave a review to any of my classes by the 1st of June, you will be automatically included in the raffle draw. The winner will be announced on the 5th of June. Thank you for supporting me on Skillshare!

I finally bought it!

I finally bought it!

I took the plunge and finally bought a Cricut Joy! My greatest fear was my weakness in following instructions. I don’t want overly technical stuff and my brain shuts when I hear numbers. I decided to get the Cricut Joy because what if I don’t get to use it. But here I am making the most of it and I’m really enjoying it. I’m quite surprise myself! 🙂

My first try!
My second try!
And now let’s try a more complicated design!

The Cricut Joy doesn’t do print and cut. So there is a hack that I learned to go around it, realising my mistakes along the way. But getting there and happy about it. Can’t wait to finally start selling my sticker designs!

Do you have a sticker cutting machine? What do you use it for? Are you happy about it?

A Drawing a Day

A Drawing a Day

One kind of journaling that I started this year is called A Drawing a Day. It’s really fun and I have a journal dedicated only to this daily activity. I draw something simple without much thought, effort or time put into it. No pressure to be perfect, purely for the joy of it. I even draw on the couch! Have you started yours?

These daily drawings are prompted by Kamo from her book, How to Draw Almost Every Day.

I’ve never regretted starting this journey 3 years ago! In November, I even ventured out and started to teach on Skillshare after receiving a grant from Arts Promotion Centre Finland. What more, I’ve became a more confident online graphic facilitator after a series of Webinars. Thanks to you all for your love and support!

To celebrate this third year, here is a short clip on how to make a quick stamp brush on Procreate as a token of thanks. Please enjoy learning with me! This will also be a bonus video in my next Skillshare class on how to design a bullet monthly journal template on Procreate. Please look forward to it. Thanks!

Digital journaling on paper?

Digital journaling on paper?

After some years of journaling merely on paper, last year I started journaling both on paper and digitally. I really enjoyed it! Here is a look through the year. I also created a K-PoP journal for the months of April and May which includes a birthday spread that was later printed out as a small book.

This year, I decided to combine them both. I’ve created monthly templates for the whole year and have them printed out as an A5 journal. I really enjoyed the process of designing these templates. I worked on Procreate App to make unique templates that fit my needs and to include elements that I like to make it my very own.

Here is a quick guide to my journal elements:

At the moment, I’m in the process of planning a class on Skillshare on how to create a monthly bullet journal template on Procreate to be published this month. In this class, I will also share with the students some of my stamp brushes to decorate their journals, the link to the fonts that I’ve created, a file with all the months of the year and a yearly calendar. Please look forward to it. Many thanks!

These printable templates are also available here.
