Today, we are adding pressed flowers as embellishments to a letter in the Procreate app. This is not a plant that would grow anywhere in nature, but instead we are building it up as a collage – I like to imagine that I have a box of pressed flowers next to me and I’m choosing […]

Embellish a Letter with Pressed Flowers


I’ve made a new brush set! These brushes were made from real flowers, personally collected and purchased from across England and Wales for the past several years, carefully pressed and then scanned at high resolution. Including a combination of both stamps and dynamic brushes which respond to pressure and direction for a unique result every […]

New! Pressed Flowers brushes for Procreate


This video was requested by Deb from the community – a wispy abstract butterfly made from digital acrylic pour painting and lined with messy black ink. I tried a few different versions and ultimately decided to trace a butterfly outline from an image from unsplash, to use as a template. Then I filled the “wings” […]

Today I wanted to explore a question that I get a lot – the difference between alpha lock and clipping mask in the Procreate digital art app, and how to do each one. The functionality is similar, but there are pros and cons to consider. Alpha Lock Apply alpha lock to a layer by swiping […]
