VIDEO: Easy Painted Doodle Inspiration

A page of painted doodle inspiration by Kim Dellow

 

Hey all, it is a new video day and this week I have a painted doodle, collage page in my junk journal for some inspiration for you. I am just loving layering doodles and paint marks at the moment and each time I do it they seem to get more complex. I am challenging myself to see how many layers I can get into one piece! I hope you enjoy watching how this painted doodle page develops from start to finish in this process video. Don’t forget to check below the video for a close-up picture of the finished projects and some links to more videos to watch!

VIDEO: Bright Mixed Media Art

Bright mixed media art by Kim Dellow

 

I felt like do something super bright to cheer us all up! I have been a little under the weather recently and so something bright and bold was definitely called for! When you work for yourself and you aren’t able to to work at the same level that you are use to it is a little bit of a shock to the system and I have been slowly recovering and trying to get back up to my usual working speed. I am not quite there yet as you will hear in the video. My voice isn’t entirely back and so I have had to put most of this video to music. Hopefully the bright colors and bold shapes will make up for the quietness of my voice!

In the video I show you all of the layers and you can watch the piece build shape by shape. Some of you might recognise it as one of the the pages that I shared in my recent studio update video. If you do, then this is what happened to it!

VIDEO: Three Easy Watercolor Abstract Inspiration

Three watercolor abstracts by Kim Dellow

 

Last week I was playing with acrylic paint and brushstrokes and sharing ideas on how to get the most out of your mark making. This week I have swapped to watercolor! So let’s play with our brushstrokes and see what kind of looks we can get with this wonderful medium. I am just going to use a mop brush for my abstracts but feel free to swap it up and use what brushes you have. And I will be chatting a bit about brushes, paint and paper in this video today with some pointers to what to try out and experiment with.

Now just as a side note! After recording this I realised that not all the colors I am using came from the Decadent pies set. So the pink I am using is actually from the Tropicals set but I liked how it works with the Decadent Pies colors so put it in the tin then forgot that it was an addition from another set!

Oh and another thing that is very handy that I discovered after recording this video is a list of the pigments for the Prima Marketing Inc Confections range. You can find it at The Spin Doctor blog.

VIDEO: How To Use Your Brush To Add Texture

Purple and red painted traveller's journal page by Kim Dellow

 

One of the things that I have been playing around with and experimenting with a lot recently is simple ways to add texture with a brush to my mixed media and acrylic painting projects. It is like brush mark making 101 but it is super fun and well worth trying if you are a newbie or revisiting if you are more experienced in your art. So today I am sharing a mixed media page process video with some tips and ideas on brush textures and mark making to get you in the mood to start experimenting with brush strokes yourself.

As usual I have the products I have used below the video and then a close-up picture of the page below that, so just scroll on down to see. I am in a Traveller’s notebook today, it isn’t even acrylic paper or heavy weight but it seemed to stand up to several paint layers and other medium over the top too!

VIDEO: How To Make A Layered Circle Leaf Print With A Gel Plate

A layered circle gel print technique by Kim Dellow

 

Let’s gel plate print! I have a gel plate printing technique in my video to share with you today that will not only show you how to make a layered gel print but also how to make it any shape you want no matter what shape your gel is. I’m revisiting leaf printing for today’s video as it is a great way to get some really interesting and unusual textures. But you can try making layers and shapes using these techniques with all sorts of different printing textures so have fun with it!

The paint I am using for my print is iridescent and looks different depending on the angle you view it at so look at the photo above and then scroll down to the bottom of this post to see the colors you get when you see it from the side!

VIDEO: How to Stop Perfectionism Getting In The Way Of Your Art

A simple acrylic doodle by Kim Dellow, with a video chat about being perfectionism

 

We can put a lot of obstacles in our own way can’t we?! And one of the ones I struggle with is perfectionism. I am a perfectionist. But when it comes to my art I have learnt how to get past it and not let it hold me back from doing art. Part of what has helped me is learning to let go and I have trained myself to do this through doing more art. But it is a particular kind of art as it is no pressure art. You need to learn to give yourself permission to mess up and do it regularly and over and over!

Now I am not saying that it is easy, I would not be that glib, but if you do try out some of the tips in this video and find them helpful then I will be so happy that me sharing what I have learnt about my perfectionism has helped you too!

If perfectionism isn’t a problem for you but you know someone who does suffer from it, then please do share this video with them!

VIDEO: More Small Scale Art For Cards – Part 2 – Paint A Flower

Watch Kim Dellow paint a flower using teal acrylic paint

It is the second part of my mini series making mini, or small scale art! And this week, I admit it is a little less abstract as I draw and paint a flower to make a small scale floral card. If you want to see the first in the series then pop back to last week’s post. Art series or working on a body of work that has a common theme is very much on my mind at the moment as I think it might be what I do more of this year. But I will tell you more in the video!

In the meantime you might want to take a closer look at the flower I painted for this small scale floral card and there is a close up picture at the bottom of this post. This is the third version of this flower. The first two versions where something that I did for my Patreons. It turned up first in the December Process addicts video and I liked it so much that I turned it into a digital art piece for all my Patreons to download as a thank you. Now it has turned up on this card! But I will tell you a bit more about that too in the video!

VIDEO: How To Make Small Scale Abstract Art For Cards – Part 1

A mini paint and pen abstract card project by Kim Dellow

 

Happy New Year! I hope you had a really lovely festive season and are ready for some New Year Inspiration as I have some small scale art inspiration for you today that is just perfect for making into cards. I think I am also in a bit of a looking back mood too, as you will hear in the video!

 

If you are one of my long term blog readers then you know that I started as a card maker. Can you believe that it is around 10 years or so that I started on that route? I can’t! And now, 10 years later, I am throwing paint around and sharing the results with you all! I know! It is funny where life leads you isn’t it?

So my video today is one abstract inspiration but I actually made three cards in this session and I am sure I will be sharing the rest later on my channel and elsewhere too!

And have you seen the card making video where I used gel printing to make the card?

 

Have fun with your small scale abstracts today and I am looking forward to some more painty sharings with you in 2019!
