Presenting one of the nerdiest things I’ve ever spent three hours on: 

Fordese. Exactly as seen in Journal 3, but as a font. You too can confuse your work partner, twin brother, and dream demon arch-nemesis by simply typing on the keyboard as normal, no pen needed!

I must thank @picnokinesis and the fics they wrote in code for putting the random inspiration in my mind to do this, ahahah. XD 

The font includes all coded letters from A-Z, both in uppercase and lowercase. (They’re both the same, though- I just figured it wouldn’t hurt to double up.) It has a full set of numbers, and the most common punctuation. Some of the letters are annoyingly close to each other, but it couldn’t easily be helped. 

But hey, if anyone actually uses this and makes a post, please feel free to tag me in it so I can see! And if anyone tries this out and there’s any major issues with it, let me know and I can try to fix it! :D

You can find the font right here!

Okay, this is basically compiled from maybe 20-30 different sources, so there’s a lot of info here. one hella big masterpost.  Even though there’s so many, I have personally checked each link to make sure it works, so you shouldn’t have to worry about that. Note: if marked with *, it’s digital/tablet art most likely. This is a really long post, so look under the cut. Follow for more master posts and references!

WayHaught..😅🔥 I just had to share my thoughts:
  • <p> <b></b> "That" scene😉 was done so well on both parts by Kat and Dom. It was raw and real and the perfect portrayal for a first time on screen for Nicole and Waverly - as Dom said they're exploring each other emotionally and physically this season. Their feelings and desires for each other are so evident.. Nicole wants to make sure Waverly is ready and comfortable and get's consent which is so important and she is so gentle with her & Waverly wants Nicole badly but the experience is new and scary for her so obviously she is feeling nervous and vulnerable. No awkwardness, they're connecting and learning about each other whilst navigating each other's bodies and discovering what their likes and dislikes are and that's beautiful. The scene is so passionate and so 'haught'🔥. Their relationship is still new but as Waverly said last season she loves her and they love each other but the fact they said they like each other in this scene is super cute as they're reconciling from their fight and finding an understanding.<p/><b></b> 100% Waverly, not Gooverly in this scene.<p/></p>

This is my first time animating anything like this

(Sorry Andrew)

flo-studies  asked:

Hey I've just started a studyblr and I was wondering if you had any tips on photographing notes & using different fonts when handwriting 🌸

I love this ask! Bear in mind though that this is just my experience, there might be photography pros who laugh about this haha

Photographing Notes

  • I use my iPhone SE to take my photos (now that I have a brand new Canon EOS I’ll start using that though). You absolutely don’t need an expensive camera to take photos, your phone works just fine! 
  • Black ink on white paper is usually the easiest to photograph. It gets tricky with blue ink (speaking from experience) because the ink becomes less prominent when you edit the picture. Colours should be highlighters or fineliners or something like that because crayons will also be hardly visible. 
  • I find it easier to take pictures against a background that has a contrast against the white paper (wooden desks, grass, rooms, blankets…). Since I have a white desk, that’s sometimes difficult to achieve. They key with white desks is to adjust exposure and contrast in such a way that it doesn’t make the desk look grey against the paper, but also not like a fluid transition between paper and desk so you can still see where your paper ends. (I don’t always manage to do that either so my advice would be to not use white desks lmao) 
  • Natural lighting is usually the best. Not directly in the sun because I find that it makes editing quite hard (vibrant colours especially in the background if you’re in nature), but near the window is the easiest. Draw your curtains back if necessary. 
  • If you don’t have natural lighting, don’t despair. Pictures taken in the evening or night, in a dark room with only  a desk lamp, can look really cozy! 
  • If you also don’t have natural lighting during the day (library, rain..), you can trick everyone with editing the picture. Try not to have a lot of shadows in your picture, and you’ll be fine! 
  • For editing: I usually use a horizontal or square format for pictures of my notes, very rarely a vertical one (only if I think a page really looks awesome as a whole). Crop your picture until you’re happy with it! This gives you the chance to cut off blank paper edges, pens on your desk etc etc 
  • I usually edit in the following way: crop, + exposure, + filter if needed, +contrast, - temperature if needed, play around with gamma correction if necessary, lighten shadows, sharpen details if needed. add filters as you wish. 
  • If you’re not sure which filter to use, save several versions of the photo with different filters, upload them all in one post and compare them side by side, then delete the ones you don’t want. For example, I often underestimate the exposure I need for tumblr. 

Handwriting Fonts 

  • I use different fonts for titles and subtitles and my normal handwriting for the text - block letters for revision, cursive for class notes. 
  • Don’t use too many different fonts. You’ll get confused and eventually use the wrong one and be frustrated. Three or four fonts including your normal handwriting should be enough. (If you’re having fun with it and want to do more, I’m not stopping you though!) 
  • You can combine different fonts with different colours to make them stand out more (good if you’re a visual learner!)
  • For inspiration, please have a look at rhianne’s aka @studypetalsbanner tag and font tag! It’s an incredible collection and extremely satisfying to look at. 
  • You can also consider using different forms of bullet points (flags, arrows etc) to give your notes even more structure. :) 

I hope this helped! 

anonymous asked:

I saw that you had a tutorial on how to make or apply a custom background to a container theme, but could you maybe do a tutorial for the photoshop graphic part? I'd love to be able to create a pretty background/border to apply, but I'm not quite sure how to do it in a way I'm happy with.

okay nonny, get comfy…

now bear in mind, that this tutorial will show you how to make a container theme background, and the techniques i use to make mine - however it may not be to your aesthetic taste, but all you have to do is to replace the images i use with things you prefer…

this tutorial will help you with -

  • checking the position and size of your container, checking the position/alignment of your background.
  • making a template.
  • using guides in ps.
  • designing a background - source images, brushes, stock resources etc.
  • using clipping masks.
  • using semi-transparent background on posts ( for readability ).

we’ll be going from this - 

to this - 

using less than 10 layers in ps! (if you want to see the full preview of the finished background on a static theme, click here.)
