Get Organised! - Make your perfect iPhone to-do list

milli-jane illustration
I have written about making your perfect to-do list before. Last time I discussed making a printable with categories to fill out each day. In this post it's all about having that same personalised set of categories but instead of on paper, it's with you wherever you go - on your phone. 

Before I mentioned how I could never find an app to fit my to-do list needs, but after upgrading to iOs 7 I thought i'd have another look. Still nothing Perfect. Until I checked out the updated reminders app and found adding categories was easy and I loved the new look.

If you read on i'll explain how I used the new reminders app to make my perfect iPhone to-do list & make a shopping list category that means you'll never have to write out a shopping list ever again!

Teal & Gold - Pinspiration

The latest obsession on my Pinterest! Clockwise from top:

Get Organised! - Make your perfect To-Do list

Being organised can be quite tricky when you work from home and when I saw this post a little while ago by Dani from Tyme is Honey I was instantly inspired. I have tried apps before like Dani but there's nothing quite like making your own daily page with your own categories and a look that means something to you.  So this is my version of a Daily Page, Basically a To-Do list but with added extras. 

I'll explain a little bit how I organised my Daily Page, If you scroll down you can download it for yourself, or make one yourself if you fancy...

Illustration Tutorial by Milli-Jane - Creating Atmosphere with Textures

A lot of people ask me how I make my illustrations look sort of painted or give them their non-computerised look. So to answer this I've decided to give you guys a tutorial of how I do it for my recent illustration of Forest Girl, Evie.
So, to start off with I created the way I wanted Evie to look in her basic shapes and colour, then I overlay a free paper texture to give her a little more atmosphere.
