VIDEO: Art Slice October Round Up

Hi Everyone, would you believe it? November is here! I know, crazy! But before we completely get into a new month of Art Slice videos let’s have a recap of October’s Art Slices shall we?

October found me playing with gouache and watercolours again and I have three films to share with you, if you haven’t seen them already, and all three use different techniques. I hope you enjoy them and feel inspired to make your own Art Slice!

[I do use affiliate links and there are some in this blog post.]

So here are October’s Art Slice videos:

Mark Making With Household Objects 

Marking making with household objects is such good fun and for this video I used bottle tops, cotton buds (Q-tips) and an old toothbrush for some mixed media colour.

Book Page Blooms

Back to a favourite of mine watercolour-look flowers. I’m really enjoying gouache at the moment and I often jump between using gouache and watercolours for these types of projects. These flowers use gouache and are really simple but very effective, old book pages make everything look good, right?! I have some up-coming projects that I thought they might work well for, so keep your eye out for them!

Halloween Pumpkin

The last of my October Art Slice videos was a little bit of Halloween fun! I do love to do something silly and fun for Halloween and this year I made a little pumpkin illustration/ animation. If you haven’t seen this one yet, then watch it through to the end!

That is it for October, but if you are wondering why there are only three videos, it was mine and David’s anniversary so we took a week off!

I will have my first November Art Slice out later today so do sign up to my Instagram and YouTube channel to see it there first. If you click on the notifications for my YouTube channel it even lets you know when I have a new video to watch!

Have a fun Friday!
