20+ ideas to incorporate Procreate into your mixed media creative process 

Today I am sharing an edited replay of a live digitalCANVAS session where I shared an overview of how I incorporate the iPad and Procreate into my mixed media creative process. In the video, I share a number of ideas and artwork samples and talk about how artists can use Procreate.

I have been using the iPad and Procreate since 2012, when I got my first iPad mini. It has enhanced my artistic practice. I’ve designed products, collage sheets and tutorials using Procreate. It has been a game changer for my art.

There are so many possibilities for leveraging your art to create collage, sketching and designing thumbnails for your traditional painted canvases, gathering inspiration and photos to create color palettes, making printable art journal sheets, IG story templates, artwork for physical products like stamps and stencils to hand painted motifs for surface pattern designs for fabric and wallpaper. 

🎨Turn mixed media artwork into digital motifs

🍃Explore creating repeat patterns

🌸Create digital brushes, stamps and stencils

📔Create collage for book pages 

Enjoy the deep dive and peek into a variety of paintings and canvases that I’ve created in procreate.

I hope you are inspired to explore how to take your mixed media artwork to another level and incorporate painting on the iPad. Happy creating!

What could you accomplish in 30 days? {actually 5 weeks 😊}

One of the comments I hear the most from artists is, “I just need to be more find the time to create. Some of you say, you lack of focus or you’re easily distracted. I continually hear…”there is not enough time in the day…how do I fit in my art with all of my other commitments”

What could you accomplish in 30 days? What if you could sit in your studio 5-10 hours a week of uninterrupted time devoted to your project? What if during each of those work sessions you had complete focus and clarity on what you’re doing?
