You can mix GDI and GDI+ drawing operations in the same code path. The article INFO: Interoperability Between GDI and GDI+ (Q311221) discusses some caveats to keep in mind when you are writing code that allows GDI and GDI+ to interoperate.

See also the FAQ ‘How to create my own hatch styles for brushes’ for an example how to use GDI bitmaps with GDI+.
