I’ve had a number of questions from customers via my Etsy store asking how to download and install my Procreate brushes into the app on the iPad.

Its not difficult at all but I think this post will help you if you are new to Procreate and downloading new brushes to use in the app.

I thought I’d write a quick blog post to show you just how easy it is to do, especially if you do the whole process from your iPad.

Whether you’re into iPad lettering, digital planning or creating art – if you are new to Procreate and you don’t know how to add these brushes to your brush collection inside the app, you might find yourself feeling pretty frustrated.

Most of the colouring books available in shops and online have drawings on both sides of each page.

I have read a lot of customer reviews for these books online and that is the one thing that irks most people. When you colour a page with your pencils, gel pens (or whichever colouring  tool you choose), it ruins the drawing on the back of the same page. That makes it harder to get good colouring results on either the first or the second drawing.

When you print my book, you can print each drawing on an individual page (or have it printed for you at a larger size). And you can print the colouring pages at home on art paper!

Here’s a sneaky peak look inside the pages of Exotic Designs as a one minute slideshow on my YouTube channel.

 

You Have Paper Choices for Printing at Home

  1. Regular copy paper.
  2. Drawing pad paper, cut down to size to feed through your printer (or buy an A4 or A3 drawing (cartridge paper pad).
  3. Watercolour paper, cut down to size to feed through your printer (or buy an A4 or Large A3 watercolour pad).

 

Colouring book for adults Exotic Designs by Jenny Gollan instant download

Available in 3 PDF sizes.

Choose yours depending on your printer requirements.

SMALL – You receive both the A4 and the U.S. Letter printable sizes in one purchase.

In Australia we commonly print in A4 paper in our home printers. In the U.S. the Letter size is more commonly used. You receive both book files but please choose carefully before you print your book.

LARGE – You receive the large A3 PDF printable size.

Many people have access to the large A3 printers in their work offices. If you would prefer to print the larger size but you don’t have access to an A3 printer, you could always take the file to your favourite local print service and request and A3 print size.

The following images are courtesy of Slavenian artist, Mojca Fabjan, who sent me these photos of her colouring work on my Peacock and Goddess drawings from the Exotic Designs book. Mojca featured these drawings on her blog HERE.

Colouring Book For Adults

Colouring book for adults Exotic Designs by Jenny Gollan. Printable instant download.

If you already follow me on Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest … you know that I’ve been working on a whole set of drawings for my very first Colouring Book for Adults! I’ve named my book Exotic Designs and it’s full of intricate hand drawn artwork and zentangle designs.

I’m so excited about the launch! I’m drawing like a woman possessed every minute of the day and only have a couple of pages to complete before I make it available to the public as an instant download and print eBook.

Why are so many adults taking up colouring in?

I’ve listed a few health benefits below but in short, colouring has a de-stressing effect and many psychologists are now recommending colouring in as a brilliant relaxation technique.

Below is a sneaky peak look at the ebook cover and one of the colouring pages that will be in my first, brand new colouring book for adults.

Why colouring in is good for your health!

There are SO many reasons why you can benefit from colouring books. Physiologists from all around the world are now extolling the virtues for your mental, physical and emotional health by simply colouring in.

Not only does it help you to distress and focus, apparently it also ignites areas of the brain that we used as children but lost somewhere along the way as we became responsible, working, bill-paying adults.

  • Calming, destressing.
  • Aids sufferers of Depression.
  • Promotes general well-being and quietness.
  • Stimulates brain areas related to motor skills, the senses and creativity.

Colouring book for adults by Jenny Gollan. Peacock print and colour. Printable.

I am having SO much fun creating these colouring pages that I know that it will be just the first of many colouring books. Of course, there’s no reason why your children wouldn’t enjoy colouring them in every bit as much as you will. But for now, because I know just how beneficial it is for YOUR health, if you haven’t already started colouring in …. I’m encouraging you to start playing with some colour. You’ll love it, I know you will!

Colouring book for adults. This book belongs to printable by Jenny Gollan Designs.

The best part about my Colouring for Adults eBooks is that once you have downloaded the pages, you have them forever and you can print them off as often as you like. And if you just LOVE one of your creations, you can pop it in a frame and hang it on your wall or give it to someone special as a gift.

I’m creating my colouring pages eBooks in two different sizes:

  • US Letter size, typically print at home size in the US.
  • A4 paper size, which we use on our home printers here in Australia.

It couldn’t be easier.

  • You’ll be able to download the entire book of zentangle art colouring designs in both sizes (US Letter and A4).
  • Save to your computer or tablet, ipad, phone camera roll.
  • Print on your home computer using regular printer paper or cut some drawing paper to fit your home printer paper requirements.
  • Grab your colouring pencils and start colouring!

My Latest Crush!

I just have to tell you … I have a home décor crush! I’ve been lusting after the look of crisp, fresh and feminine home office or studio spaces lately. Can you relate? I see photos of them all over the internet, in blogs, on Pinterest … everywhere. Pristine, clean, white desks with magnificent flower arrangements, expensive-looking jewellery cascading over the edges of pretty dishes and gorgeous art in frames to inspire whoever it is sitting at those desks.

I’m going to be honest with you though ….. my studio space definitely doesn’t look like that but I’m working on it. I’ve always felt that surrounding yourself and your family with beautiful things is good for the health. I’m not talking about expensive things though, just beautiful colours, smells and sounds. You know what I mean? Colour in your home décor, wall art, furnings, plants. The smell of home cooking or a beautiful bunch of flowers. The sounds of music, water, birdlife. It’s all good for overall health, I’m sure of it.

July calendar 2015 free printable

I don’t know about you but I’m into trying to recreate this sort of ‘look’ on a tight budget. Whatever we can DIY to enhance our home or office decor is a good thing in my book. You can leaf through glossy magazines, home decorating sites or Pinterest (drool) for hours and hours but if you can’t afford to buy all that is required, or even hire someone to decorate for you then … DIY is a great option when it comes to home decorating.

At the beginning of last month, inspired by the French chic, elegant watercolour images by Australian artist Kerrie Hess, I got to work creating my very own watercolour art calendar pages. This was a tiny step towards my goal of recreating the ‘White & feminine’ home office look here at home in my work space but I thought I’d share these printable calendar images with you for FREE in the 2nd (and last) You’ll also receive the desktop image version and a link to grab the Wifi Password printable, Newsletter of the month, just in case you don’t have yours already.

Wifi password printable for idea Tolsby frame.

I’m already working on loads of other downloadable home/office decor printable art to share with you to match this feminine theme. Along with those I will include contemporary black and white Printables to mix and match the décor theme you already have at home.

The June calendar 2015 printable was a huge hit but it’s not too late to start collecting the Calendar Printables, I create a fresh art calendar monthly page and uploaded it for you every month. I’ll be creating fresh designs as instant download files for my newsletter subscribers, completely free. Yay! Who doesn’t love a freebie?
