How to Make Coloring Pages on your iPad with Procreate

Step 1: Setting up your Canvas

To start, open the Procreate app on your iPad and create a new canvas. Choose the dimensions and resolution that you prefer for your coloring page.

To create coloring pages for print, I suggest using the Paper size, which is 8.5 x 11 inches.

Step 2: Drawing the Mandala

Navigate to the Actions menu (the wrench icon on the top left of the screen), click on Canvas, turn Drawing Guide on and then click Edit Drawing Guide.

Then go down to Symmetry > Options, and select the Radial option.

Now, using the drawing tools in Procreate, begin drawing your mandala. Play around with different shapes, patterns, and intricate details to make your mandala unique.

Step 3: Adding Inspirational Quotes

Now, it’s time to incorporate an inspirational quote (or other text) into your coloring page. Select a quote that resonates with you or your audience.

To add your text, go to the Actions menu again, click on Add, and then click on Add Text. Type out your quote, then go to Layers, tap on the text layer, and then select Edit text. Under Attributes, select the icon that looks like an O (next to Underline). This will make the text appear as just the outline of the font (note: this does not work on all fonts).

Then, you can go through your fonts and select one you like. You can download additional fonts from Creative Fabrica, if you like.

If the letters of your chosen font are connecting, they may overlap. You can then go to Layers, tap on the text layer and select Rasterize. Then you can go in and erase the overlapping lines to make the text connect cleanly.

Finally, position the text around the mandala, ensuring it complements the overall design.

Step 4: Final Touches and Exporting

Once you’re satisfied with your coloring page, take some time to add any final touches or details.

When you’re done, export the file in a high-resolution format, such as a PDF, PNG or JPEG, depending on your specific needs.

To share your mandala go up the Actions menu (wrench icon), click on Share, and then select the file type you require, and save it to your iPad.

Now you’re ready to print or share your new coloring page however you like!
