VIDEO: Easy And Relaxing Art – Watercolour Paint And Pen Doodle

Mini-doodles on coloured backgrounds is like one of my go-to creative tricks for creating when I am in a hurry and don't have much time, or for those moments when I am actually feeling not that creative. And I have been having both of those art-troubles this week so I have a watercolour paint and pen doodle to share with you today. And I hope that you enjoy watching this colourful doodle grow! The added bonus is that it is also relaxing isn't it?! A few weeks ago I…

VIDEO: Easy, Fearless Mixed Media Layers

We all want to make fearless mixed media art but I know that we can put a lot of pressure on ourselves to make 'beautiful' things, eye-pleasing art, can't we? But you know me, I love to creative play and not all creative play has to be 'beautiful'. All it really needs to be is free, experimental, and fun! So in my art video today I am going to keep it loose and build some fearless mixed media layers using lots of different acrylic paint and watercolour pencil techniques.…

VIDEO: Relaxed And Easy Festive Mixed Media Art Page

I did not intend this to be a festive mixed media art piece but that is where I think it turned up! Well, a festive mixed media art piece in that it has many traditional Christmas colours and some non-traditional Christmas colours too! I was very pleased with that mint colour that I mixed in the video. Might be my new favourite colour for 2020 - Pantone eat your heart out! Actually, I just looked it up and Pantone would probably say that it was very '2003' as they…

VIDEO: Easy And Relaxing Art – Paint And Pen Doodle

I think that is might be time for some easy and relaxing art, because I am guessing that you might be a bit busy at the moment and might need to unwind! So I have been saving this paint and ballpoint pen doodle for just this occasion.  You might remember the last mini abstract? It was the abstract face exercise from a few weeks back. Did you have a go at it? This week's mini abstract is from the same set of little art pieces, it even uses most…

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

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…

VIDEO: Flowers And Graphite Junk Journal Page

Sometimes your junk journal page doesn't turn out the way you thought it would does it?

I am…

VIDEO: Working On Two Art Journal Pages At Once

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…
