Continuing With Procreate


So I am pretty much having a blast at nighttime watching Musketeer reruns and playing with my iPad.  The Procreate app is pretty amazing and I don’t even know how to do very much with it yet.  I imported the image above. (I used it for the cover of my Tangle Starts Strings book.) Made with alcohol ink… Continue Reading

From Hahnemühle Watercolor Paper to Procreate Mandala


 Still having fun with this Procreate app on my iPad.  So, so much to learn! I made this last night while listening to TV. Let me walk you through what I did.   Earlier in the month, I did a product review for the Hahnemühle Harmony Hot Pressed Watercolour Paper.  You can read the review here. For… Continue Reading

Playing With the Procreate App #digitalart


 I finally got brave enough to charge my Apple Pencil and check out the Procreate app on my iPad.  So much fun!!! My friend Cindy got me started and this is what I made in the symmetrical setting. I honestly don’t recall how I added the shading. I am hoping I can figure that out the next time… Continue Reading

Hopefully my theme is obvious! I know these pictures will appear large on the computer screen,… Continue Reading

Two Tangles For You #tanglepatterns

Super versatile tangle. You can seriously use it so  many ways. I used it in yesterday’s post as well. Feel free to… Continue Reading

I opted to use my Hahnemühle Watercolor book and my newly put together watercolor kit. I started by making some oddly (haha!) shaped boxes of color. I wanted them to… Continue Reading

Reorganizing Take Two #somuchfun #foundgoodstuff


 In my last post I was showing you how I was reorganizing my art studio.  It was looking pretty good, too. And then I got an awesome idea for getting more of my color media out where I could actually see them and be able to remember what I have. Hence, Reorganizing Take 2.  When we lived… Continue Reading

Reorganizing My Studio


Reorganizing once again because I can’t find something. It is hard to find certain things because I keep thinking about where they were in Florida.  Every inch of this room is utilized for storage. And it does get a bit out of control from time to time.  Recently, I have had several people ask about  my studio, so… Continue Reading

Disc Bound Journaling #hahnemühle


I made myself a little Hahnemühle disc bound journal! Awesome! In a post you can see here, I show you in great detail what I did with the journal. The paper I started with was 140 lb. hot pressed watercolor paper called Harmony, and it is made by Hahnemühle Fine Art. The pages were roughly 9″… Continue Reading
