4 Steps to Designing Digital Wallpaper + Free Monthly Download

Last year in April, I started making free monthly desktop and mobile phone wallpapers every month until the end of the year. I started this year undecided if I'd continue monthly wallpapers. But I realized I missed making these for you, so I thought I'd make one for March.

You'll have to excuse the random monstera theme as it was something I happened to paint and thought they would make a nice digital wallpaper. In fact, in order to keep this design process sustainable for me, I'll probably be making wallpapers out of watercolor paintings that I have already painted for fun or for projects. Hopefully there are no objections to me repurposing my own work ;)!

I also wanted to share a basic breakdown for the steps I take when designing these wallpapers. Maybe you're curious or are looking for a basic workflow in order to design some for yourself. In any case, I hope you find it helpful!

It looked very May-ish to me, so I digitized it for this month’s desktop and phone wallpaper.

April: Free Monthly Wallpapers

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, then you’ll recognize these watercolor sage leaves I painted a little while back! I finally digitized them and turned them into desktop and mobile wallpapers for you to download and use this month. 

Changing my desktop wallpaper every month forces me clean up all those stray icons and files that tend to accumulate over time. It’s nice to start the new month with a clean desktop, isn’t it? I also have this thing with calendars. Sometimes they are helpful, but other times I just don’t want all those extra numbers in my face. So, I made a version without a calendar that’s just a background for anytime you want some sage leaves in your life.
