Ok, I’ll own up! I have been on a spending spree! I have some Amsterdam acrylic paints to try out this week and following on from last Sunday, when I was putting the Pebeo Irridescent paints through their paces, it is starting to look like I might have gone a bit acrylic paint-crazeeee! Mmm? Perhaps I have?!
But I wanted to branch out a little and try some of the student-grade and craft-grade paints. For one thing they are cheaper than the artist-grade paints that I use a lot of and let’s face it they just seem to be getting better and better don’t they? So I have to say I am super-impressed with the Amsterdam Standard range so far. I’ve been using them for the last couple of weeks or so and you will have spotted them in my Instagram Stories and even in my recent dragonfly art journal page video. I think I will be using these a lot.
So today is an art journal page process video using this lovely stamp from Trish Latimer’s Wordgirl collection and I’m sharing some really simple tips for building up and adding texture with acrylic paint layers. Don’t forget to scroll down for a close-up of the page and links to the videos that I mention in this video.
