Procreate tutorial: How to colour a glowing star background (plus swatch file)

This background is so simple, it’s actually ridiculous. There are only a few steps needed, and just 3 colours!

If you want to use the exact same colours as me in this video, the Procreate colour palette swatch file has been included as a download below.

Want to use the same colours as me? Here’s the swatch file for you. If you’re not sure how to import this into the Procreate app, my fellow Procreate addict Cristin April Frey has an excellent tutorial here.
