I’ve mentioned before that one of my newfound loves is the Procreate app. It has its limits, but you can create almost anything in it.

Last night, I decided to ditch my Apple Pencil, and use my finger as a stylus instead. This is what came out of that “experiment”. I used the ‘Wet Acrylic’ brush of various sizes for the entire graphic.

Earlier today, I re-loaded my Etsy shop with four of these beautiful, vintage-inspired ring boxes! Until tomorrow (2/15/17), I’m offering 10% off of any non-custom order with the code, ‘MEOW2017’! Click ‘Shop’ at the top of this page or this link to view + purchase!

As always, thank you for supporting my small biz!
