Pick up my foil texture mandala kit on Creative Market or Etsy to try this technique with a beautiful mandala stamp, and view my first tutorial about adding texture to a layer here. Continue reading

Break Up Letter – my latest handmade font

I just released a new font! This one is called Break Up Letter and it’s a handwritten style that I developed using my iPad Pro. It’s the first font that I’ve ever released that comes in bold, italic, and bold + italic versions. It includes uppercase and lowercase as well as numbers and punctuation. The zip file you get when you purchase it also contains WOFF webfont versions, so you can embed it on your website.

Paint streak iPad lettering by Alexis Gentry

Paint streak lettering is my new favorite thing

If you’ve checked out my Instagram stories lately, you’ve probably seen some paint streak lettering. Prior to trying it out, I had seen this technique all over my feed from talented letterers like @ipadlettering and @stefankunz, but I had no idea how to do it. Then Myriam, the brilliant letterer behind @halfapx posted a quick tutorial in her Instagram story. I knew I had to try it out, and I completely fell in love with the technique and now all I want to do is make more of these.

Here are a few I’ve done using the streaky texture technique.
