Create Your Own Digital Artwork for Your Phone, Desktop, and More!
How cool would it be to create your own desktop wallpapers? We know there’s an abundance of desktop wallpapers out there, but not something that’s made by YOU.
If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to create your own wallpapers for your desktop or phone, we have an UPCOMING ONLINE CLASS that you’re going to LOVE.
Coming back for the second time, designer, illustrator, and watercolor extraordinaire JENNA RAINEY is here to teach you how. In her upcoming online class, you’ll learn how to sketch out patterns, upload them into Adobe Illustrator, and use all of her tips and techniques to design repeat patterns and add colors to create a beautiful digital wallpaper. Size for desktop and your phone, and voila! You’ll walk away from the class having created two adorable wallpapers featuring cactus and multicolored limes. Psst! An example of a wallpaper you’ll be creating below…
After creating the wallpapers featured in this class, it’s time to get creative and design your own. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
The best part about learning this creative skill in Adobe Illustrator is that you can create and replicate your favorite patterns to use on prints, wrapping paper, or, believe it or not, actual wallpaper!
We can’t wait for this class to launch! If you’re already loving it as much as we are, sign-up for a class alert HERE. You’ll get an email from us when the class is live. Plus, you’ll save 15 percent by enrolling early, which is even more of a reason to sign up today!
Can’t wait for the class to launch? We think you should take Jenna’s first class, WATERCOLOR PAINTING, and then use your new skills to create watercolor patterns and textures that you can digitize later! ;)
Whatever you decide to do, make sure to share your creations with us on Instagram. Tag @BritandCo and use #iamcreative. We’d love to see what you come up with!
