About this Class
Are you a mixed media artist transitioning into using Procreate for creating your art? Are you into scrapbooking or art journaling? When you hear the term mixed media, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Collage? Textural abstract pieces? The addition of ephemera and found elements? Crazy, experimental techniques? Borders and stamps?
Mixed media can indeed be all these things, but fundamentally, it's simply an expansive term that encompasses any work made with more than a single media. In this class, Ephemera to Make Brushes for Mixed Media Art in Procreate, I tried to let go of perfectionism and work intuitively in creating a page much like I do with my traditional tools and materials in my art journals. We’ll gather inspiration and explore basic brush making and mixed media techniques (digitally), that will encourage you to be freer with your artwork. We will create a fun and expressive art journal page with custom brushes that can mimic the real media all of which I will teach you how to make. I give you a bunch to begin with so you can alter these to your liking. These brushes include background pattern fill, color changing brushes, continuous border brushes, stamp brushes, and more. I will also provide some mixed media backgrounds to play with!
