Faux Cut Paper Art Tutorial. Follow along with my video to learn how to create realistic-looking paper art in Procreate!
Faux Cut Paper Art Tutorial
I’ve been loving playing with a faux cut paper art style on my iPad these last few months. So I created this artwork and video tutorial to show you how easy and fun digital paper art is.
This artwork was inspired by the Song “Put Your Records On” by Corinne Bailey Rae. If you’ve never heard it, or it’s been a while, check it out over on YouTube to help inspire you creatively!
Artist Ritt Momney has a fantastic cover of this song that’s worth checking out as well. You can listen to it free right here.
Here’s a closer look at the textures and shadows that give the cut paper effect.
- Procreate App + iPad + Apple Pencil
- Procreate Brushes: Monoline Brush and Paper Texture Brush. Note: I’ll be using the Watercolor Paper Brush from my Watercolor Lettering Kit and a few heart stamps from The Modern Folk Art Stamp Kit. Those are optional but make creating this piece a little extra efficient.
