I just love using the Procreate App on my iPad Pro.
Along with my Apple Pencil, I am able unleash more
of my creativity!
I am not a purest when it comes to my art . . . I will use any tool, any medium,
and any method if it makes me relax and feel joy while creating.
I recently starting taking online classes through Skillshare and

and give their experiences and knowledge openly.

and am now experimenting on my own.
I love Mandalas.

to make those beautiful circles that I think Mandalas require.

a Square Grid Template, and wait for it . . .

them into Procreate, they can each be on their own layer
and you can still see them at the same time!
Genius! LOL, for me at least!

Just playing around and experimenting.
The beauty behind all of this too, is that
they are 8" x 8" so they can be printed
out on regular size paper.
Both of these grids and MORE can be
Oh, I created this using one of my Mandala Templates.
Thanks for joining me today!
Hope your day is wonderful!
