About This Class


In this class, I’ll show you every step of my process from planning out the composition to creating a realistic watercolor effect on each letter.  You don’t have to be good at hand lettering to create these pieces, because I’ll show you how to use downloaded fonts as a template for your lettering.  If you love hand lettering though, you can use your own lettering as your template.

I'll show you how to:

  • use a masking process to create a quote with multiple text styles and watercolor variation
  • balance light and dark areas to create a real watercolor look.
  • use a free hand watercolor process, then add multiple colors and shades to the quote to add tons of variation
  • use shapes to decorate the outside of a quote

Once you learn the steps, you’ll be able apply them to a wide range of digital and printable projects.  You could use this technique to create greeting cards, art prints, or print on demand shops. Or you could use the process to create images for your website, social media, or digital downloads.  

All you need to take this class is your iPad and a stylus.  I’ll be using the Apple Pencil, but you could use any stylus, or even your finger.  Let’s get started!
