VIDEO: Keep On Layering!

A bright and colorful layered art journal page by Kim Dellow

 

Just keep on layering – I think it is my new mantra! At least for today’s art video it is and it continues on from last week’s art video where I was using the same technique to work through my ‘new layer’ blocks. Do you remember we talked about them last week? It is worth doing the exercise a few times, so I have another painting process timelapse to share with you using the ‘Keep On Layering’ mantra. 

Let me know how you are getting along with your keep on layering exercises!

VIDEO: Art Painting Process -Did I Go Too Far?

Mixed media art with lots of acrylic paint and crayon work by Kim Dellow

 

Sometime in my painting process, when I make my mixed media pieces, like art journal pages or the other pieces that I do, I can get to a point when I don’t want to add another layer. Do you know what I mean? I don’t feel the piece is finished but I’m scared to add another layer in case I mess it up. I mean it is ok as it isn’t it? Why should I add another layer and risk that mess up?

Well, this week I thought I would try a little creative exercise and share the results with you in this timelapse video so that you can watch the whole painting process. And I hope that you have fun trying this exercise in your own work too!

VIDEO: How To Start A Page From The Focal Image

A colorful art journal page with a central hare image made by Kim Dellow

Today I thought we could have a play with the whole art journal or mixed media project making process and turn it on it’s head! Reverse it! Make the page backwards! Ok, so what I really mean is let’s just start with the focal image and see how we can make the art from there. What steps will we need to do and how can we build the piece with an image in mind but not the final project in mind?

Intrigued? Then watch the video below, try it yourself and share the results with me over on social media. I’m @kimdellow on Instagram!

Oh and by the way, the Hare stamp is a DIY craft foam stamp and you can make one yourself. I have a template for you to download and an in-depth ‘how-to make’ video when you join either the Art Explorers or Process Addicts tier on Patreon.

(Not sure what Patreon is then watch this short video explainer!)

VIDEO: Layer With Me Step By Step

Colorful abstract flowers layer with me project by Kim Dellow

Welcome to your ‘Layer With Me’ video and it is here as a big thank you to you for getting me to 10K subs on YouTube. You voted for it and it is finally here! So I hope you enjoy it. Remember to watch it through, then bookmark the video to work through the layers at your own speed, pausing when you need to!

So the idea of my ‘Layer With Me’ videos, both this one and the first one I did, is that you can make your own piece with me. I go through each step and you can follow along then pause as you need to to finish each layer. If you are new to mixed media art it is a great way to build up confidence. And if you are a bit further along then you can change it up as you like and I have some tips and ideas on how as we go through.

Then when you have done your project, link me up to the finished piece on social media and my links are all below. For quick reference I am @kimdellow on most things including Instagram in case you didn’t know.

Have fun and I can not wait to see the results.

VIDEO: 3 Paper Doodling Ideas Using Someone Else’s Papers

3 different paper doodling ideas from Kim Dellow

If you still haven’t tried Paper doodling then maybe my three paper doodling projects this week will get you cutting! I have swapped out my own leftover papers for some gorgeous paper downloads that I bought from the lovely Judy who owns the Etsy shop JADESMiXEdMediaArt. They are so rich and full of details and color that I just had to try paper doodling with them. You can also find Judy over on Instagram too so do pop on over and say hi!. 

These papers are so lovely and bright that I think they work well on dark backgrounds. I have some more ideas of where you can use your paper doodles and on what surfaces in this week’s video. Don’t forget that if you have missed all the paper doodling fun you can find out how to do it in my How To Paper Doodle Video.

VIDEO: How To Paper Doodle And Use Up Your Leftover Papers

colored paper collage paper doodles by Kim Dellow

 

I have been doodling quite a lot recently in my videos haven’t I? I’ve doodled with all sorts of different materials, you can see me doodle with acrylic paint and soft pastels or watercolors and ink in my last two videos. This week I am also doodling and I have a new doodle creative exercise to share with you that I am calling Paper Doodle!

The Paper Doodle is all about making patterns and doodles with paper collage but it isn’t ordinary collage as I will explain in this video. It is super simple to do and a great way to use up old papers. So watch the video, then have a play and share the results with me on social media as I would love to see them and all my links are at the end of this post.

VIDEO: Watercolor And Ink Doodle artwork – Trying New Products

Watercolor and ink doodle by Kim Dellow

Doodling is very much on my mind again this week and I have a watercolor and ink doodle to share with you this time in my weekly art week. If you missed it last week I was using acrylic paint and soft pastels to make a doodle. But you know how much I like to mix up my media! So this week I am testing out some new-to-me watercolor paints and paper and talking through my process for testing new products too.

Enjoy the watercolor doodle and there is a side piccy of the final project as well as a peek of my Daily Doodle Diary below!

VIDEO: Making An Acrylic Paint And Pastel Doodle Painting

Acrylic paint and soft pastel doodle on kraft paper by Kim Dellow

 

I thought I would break out the soft pastels for today’s pastel doodle project. Do you use them? They aren’t the first coloring material that I usually reach for but I thought it would be fun play with them and see what I could do. I am using them with acrylic paint so I have some tips on how to use paper masks to get beautiful block shapes and then lots of tips on how to use soft pastels. 

 

Let me know how you get on with them and scroll on down this post to see a some more of the texture of the pastels on the kraft paper I am using.

VIDEO: Saving Messy Art PLUS DIY Sticky Masks

Adding pen work to a gel print by Kim Dellow

I love messy art! I think it is totally part of the process and has so many important uses for us as artists. But I also know that messy art can be frustrating sometimes and we might end up feeling that we have gone too far and need to ditch the art or recycle it. 

If you have gone through this too then I have a piece and some ideas that will help you today. But also today I am sharing a DIY adhesive mask trick, so great if you don’t have the masking film I have been using in the last two videos. And I have a trick for bringing two completely different pieces together as if they were always meant to be together. 

Scroll on down for the supplies and a picture of the inside of the card!

VIDEO: More Gel Printing Ideas – Reuse Masking Film!

Yellow and green gel print with painted and pencil circles around a masked area.

Gel printing cards again this week and sticking with that double-sided card idea, if you missed it check last week’s post for the first card in this series. This week I found a couple of faces in the gel print design! So had to try and bring them out! But faces aren’t the only thing I thought I would try out this week. I thought I would see if I could stretch my stash and reuse an old piece of masking film, one I have used before. Will it still work?

 

Find out in the video and you can find a picture of the inside and the outside of this week’s double-sided card below.

Don’t forget to watch last week’s card if you missed it and you can find the video on my YouTube channel. You can also find the video where I used this film with watercolors.

Have lots of creating!
