Mobile Art Monday No. 55

Today is a Procreate day! Once you learn what this app is capable of, you can do just about anything with it. (I'm hoping to do some video recording to explain parts of it in the future.)

This week I did a little art journaling piece. I had written this in my 'journal' (Notes App) last week and was trying to figure out what I would do for a ballerina to turn it it some art.
I have always wanted to turn some flowers into skirts so when I saw the dill in my camera roll I figured it might work.
You can find my Procreate video here on Vimeo. You'll be able to see the photos used, a paper I stenciled and progression of my 'painting'.
Originally I did all the writing in Procreate and was so proud of myself. (You can see in the video that I used a grid to help keep the writing straight and uniformly spaced. Then later deleted the grid layer.)
But I just wasn't happy with it.

I knew Snapseed had added text in a recent update so why not try it.
I exported a version from Procreate without the writing.
I felt this looked much better. I liked the font, the only thing I didn't like was that I had to do each line separate because it would not do a return. Since you can go back and edit each 'edit' in Snapseed, it made a long list of text 'layers'. This is good if you need to reposition something or change it's size or color. I also added a touch of Image Tuning to the final piece.

Does it bother me that she has no arms? 
No. She's probably still working on that restraint issue.

Have a great Mobile Art Monday!


  1. Your pictures are so incredible! I love seeing what you are able to make. I'm going to go back through your posts to read how you were able to make some of your pictures. Thank you for sharing!!

  2. I guess I didn't even notice she didn't have arms. Great edit.


I read and appreciate all your comments. Have a blessed day!
