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.
