VIDEO: DIY Journal: How To Work On Your Next Varied Page

Pages from Kim Dellow's varied page DIY journal

I am back in my DIY journal this week with another page and jumping off where I left off last time. It is really fun working in a varied page DIY journal like this because it is challenging to make new art that is both different from the last, but also works with that original art that is peeking through. 

So what do you do with your varied page DIY journals and how do you continue your arting on each page? I would love to know. Hope this video gives you some more ideas on what to do on your next DIY journal page!

Did You Miss The Life Book Summit?

If you missed the Life Book Creativity and Wellbeing summit that ran back in September and you wanted to do all those amazing mixed media art activities, and learn all about next year’s Life Book 2020 teachers, but you didn’t get the time.

Well you have another chance! It’s back for the next week and you can watch the summit replay, for free, over on the Summit replay page from now until the 12th December 2019!

Yay! I know right! I just had to pop on in here and let you know!

SO clear the weekend! There is art to do!

VIDEO: Flowers And Graphite Junk Journal Page

Junk journal page by Kim Dellow with flowers

Sometimes your junk journal page doesn’t turn out the way you thought it would does it? I mean it is not like I had a plan for this junk journal page that I am sharing today, but I didn’t think it would go the way that it did!

Just as with last week’s DIY art journal pages, I have also added in some graphite later on in the art process and have a few different techniques for you to try out on your next junk journal page. I am still just experimenting to see what looks I can get with graphite in mixed media. So I hope you enjoy watching the very up and down process of this junk journal today!

VIDEO: Working On Two Art Journal Pages At Once

Two art journal pages process from Kim Dellow's DIY art journal

I’m working on two art journal pages in my video today. It’s in a DIY journal that I made with my Patrons over on Patreon a few months ago. You might recognise it even if you haven’t joined me on Pateon, because I recently decorated it’s denim cover over on YouTube, well when I say recently I mean back in August! That still feel recent to me! 

I’ve been slowly filling this book with paint and pen doodles and I thought I would share two very different pages using some art element from the Digi-Delightfuls download packs from October and November.

VIDEO: How Do You Use Your Colour? – Easy Mini Abstract And Chat

A warm colour abstract from Kim Dellow using acrylic paint and ball pint pen.

Colour is one of our favourite things isn’t it? So how do you use your colour? There are just so many ways to use colour and how you use your colour can grow and develop as you grow and develop over time.

It is actually a question that I get asked about a lot, how I use colour, and most recently from Katherine Babcock aka Artistically Insane (go visit her on instagram!). So I thought I would take this opportunity to give her a shout out, you will see why in the video, and to share some of my current thoughts on colour. I hope they help you to think about how you use your colour.

VIDEO: Easy Mini Abstract Painting Exercise

Easy mini abstract exercise video by Kim Dellow

If your managed to catch my Life Book 2020 Summit interview and activity, or you have been following me for a while, then you will know that I have a few different art practices that I try to keep doing regularly. On Life Book I shared my Daily Doodle Diary with some exercises and tips to get you started on yours.

Today I am sharing more about one of the exercises that I shared in my free ‘Get Creating’ ebook – the mini abstract exercise. This is another of my regular art practices and quite linked to the Daily Doodle Dairy.

So I am sharing today why doing these types of exercises, the mini abstract and Daily Doodle Diary, can be so useful and how the two are linked too and I hope that it inspires you to add mini abstracts into your regular art practice along with your Daily Doodle diary practice.
