  1. Hi, in awe of your great brushes and papers!
    I wondered if you were familiar with an app called Craft Pro? It’s only for the iPad and developed by this guy:
    I ask because – you’ve guessed it – I just got the app and wondered if your brushes would work in it?
    All the best,

    1. Thanks so much Mike!
      I haven’t actually tried the app myself but I don’t think you can import any brushes into it at all. It’s a very new app and fairly feature free but I expect it will change a lot now that he is working with an app developer so I will keep my eye on it and if anything changes I will let you know

      1. Thank you Nicolai and Merry Christmas:)
