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.
UPDATE: This class has now been published. Please have a check here. Thanks!
They say that COVID-19 will eventually come to an end. In my mind I kept asking when. Sadly, it is becoming normal for me. Wearing mask in public, washing and sanitising hands like crazy, careful what I touch, avoiding people, avoiding crowd seem to have become my standard way of living. I have learned to navigate and live with it and hoping that I won’t be infected. I don’t live in paranoia. I try to live as usual. But there are many exceptions to this, for example, I can’t just work on live settings or travel easily. But those too seem to have worked out. I overcame my fear of what will 2021 be while now, it has been replaced with what will 2022 be. However, in any case, 2021 was after all a good year!
How was your 2021? I’ll be happy to know. May 2022 be better!
The month of July was a Sticker give-away month on my Instagram. Many thanks to those who played with me. The sticker packets were already mailed to the winners. It was really fun that I would like to do it again! If you want to join the next give-aways, come and follow me on Instagram!
I love illustrating my favourite recipes. I started this habit in 2015 and posted them on They Draw website. But this time I have some of my favourite recipes printed into a small book and I’m really happy how it turned out!
How does it feel to wear a shirt that you know no one on earth has the same or even similar shirt to what you are wearing? Well to be honest, it feels totally amazing! The print on demand is really a great concept where things are made per order. It’s said that in the near future, production surplus will not be an issue anymore. Those storage full of unsold stuff will be a thing of the past. Offline shopping might even disappear. Things will only be made to order. And there’s a uniqueness to that. Soon the days will also be over where you might see someone wearing the same clothes as you. Furthermore, it will be the new normal for everyone. Think about it!
I never knew that making Stamp brushes for Procreate will become a natural part of me. I enjoy making them. I actually love the process. Very simple, such fun! My collection could easily be up to 50 designs now. I’m happily sharing the link here to access them. Although at the moment, there are only very few designs uploaded because I’m still testing the proper way to distribute them. In time, I will upload more.
Are there Stamp brushes that would be useful for you? Let me know. I’ll see if I can create them. My hope is to come up with a set of Stamp brushes that would be useful for our work as Visual Facilitators, designers, illustrators but also as hobbyist. This fabric design, for example, was made with Stamp brushes.
A Procreate Stamp Brush maker? Well, I’ve become that person!
