Collages on Your iPad in Procreate + 35 Stamp and Texture Brushes
I started making collages as soon as I was old enough to hold scissors, and somehow I never grew out of it. I love finding vintage images (and mixing in some of my own) on paper, but now that I’m making them in Procreate I’m beyond addicted.
In my new class on collages in Procreate, you’ll learn how to create unique collages in Procreate by combining vintage images, hand drawn elements, and layer effects.
When you watch this class, you’ll get all of the Procreate brushes I use to create my collages. The set includes 25 stamps of flowers, insects, figures, and shapes, plus a set of 8 texture brushes for adding vintage patterns, fading, and scuffs to your collages.
First we’ll look at online resources for thousands of free vintage and modern images, and talk about how to choose the best photos for your project. I’ll show you a ton of collage inspiration, so you’ll have plenty of ideas and resources to get you started.
Next we’ll turn an image of a figure into a unique composition combining modern and vintage photographs with bold color and surprising juxtapositions. We’ll talk about how to cleanly cut out and adjust the photos so they seamlessly fit into your collage, rather than look like out-of-place cutouts.
Next we’ll create a layered collage combining figures, shapes, and textures, and talk about ways to play around with layer blending modes to create a multi-dimensional composition. We’ll look at a few different options for creating color versions, so you can find a color palette that works best for your personal style.
Then we’ll give a modern photograph a vintage look so we can incorporate it into a collage with other vintage elements. That way you can get the exact pose you need, but still keep the vintage style in your collage.
Next we’ll combine vintage images and text in an eye catching composition that draws the viewer’s eye to the word or quote you choose. We’ll look at how to add hand drawn elements to your collage, and how to use the gestures and poses in vintage images to create unique and interesting compositions. Last we’ll turn the image into a GIF so it really stands out online.
The amazing thing about this process is that you can quickly create a beautiful composition using photos you find online, or your own family photos.
You could use the collages you create on your website or social media accounts, you could upload them to print on demand sites, or you could print the collages out onto paper using a home printer or printing service.
I’ll show you how to find tons of images online, but if you have some of your own vintage photos, this is a perfect time to pull them out of the closet and scan them so you can integrate part of your family history into the collage!
All you need to take this class is your iPad and a stylus. I’ll be using the Apple Pencil, but you could use any stylus, or even your finger.
