VIDEO: Mini Abstract Acrylic Paintings And An Idea For Using Them!

 

I am painting some mini abstract acrylic paint pieces today and I thought I would share them with you in my Wednesday art video and also turn them into something useful, not just pretty! You will see what at the end of the video but I am sure you can guess from the photo can’t you?! I am also just sharing a little personal, where I am, artistically and on the business side of things,  at the moment chat.

And in the video I mention that I want to build a community over on Patreon, well I have set up my page so go pop on over to find out more. I will probably do a whole separate blog post and video about it soon, so think of this as the soft launch! But my idea is that it will be like a subscription service that you can pledge what you want to and get extra art learning, inspiration and behind the scenes from me.  So do take and look!

Enjoy today’s video, the product list is below and a close up photo of the finished projects is below too!

VIDEO: Mail Art – Abstract Acrylic Painting Envelope

 

It’s great fun doing mail art isn’t it? I haven’t done any for ages, well unless you count the gift box of arty goodies that I decorated recently that is, and I thought that as I was sending off some arty bits and bobs for the recent background collaboration that it would be the perfect opportunity to do a touch of mail art. So my video share today is the mail art I made and I hope it fills you full of arty inspiration to get you making and painting today!

Above is a picture of the front and if you scroll down you will find a picture of the design on the back. I also share what I sent in the parcel in the video too.

VIDEO: Mixed Media Art Faces – Collaboration With My Arty Heart – Part 2

 

Last week I shared the background that I made for Jeanine from My Arty Heart in our art collaboration. Did you see it? I made her two backgrounds, I wonder which one she decided to use? Well, before you go find out here is what I did with the gorgeous background she sent me. I decided to go with a portrait, well actually two portraits for my collaboration piece. You can find out why and watch it come together in this speed art timelapse video.

After you have watched my video go check out what Jeanine made with the backgrounds I made her! Scroll on down for her other links too, the supplies I have used today and a close up picture of the portraits!

VIDEO: Easy Expressive Flower Drawing Exercise Using Watersoluble Crayons

 

I really love using crayons to draw with, they can be so expressive can’t they? I’m sharing a great flower drawing exercise in my Wednesday art video this week, using watersoluble crayons. This easy flower drawing exercise if great for beginners and experts alike. If you are a beginner it will help you build confidence with your expressive drawing. For the more advanced try it as a quick warm up exercise before a longer art session!

Don’t worry if you don’t have watersoluble crayons, you don’t have to use them as I say in the video. You can also swap out crayons for pencils and I give you a tip on how to use your pencils in an expressive manner in the video. Scroll down for all the products I have used, it’s a really small list today! And there is a close up of the finished piece under the video too!

VIDEO: Mixed Media Collage Painting – Project 2 From My Burnout Series

 

More burnout art today and a mixed media collage piece. Yep, I am owning it and calling it burnout work! If you aren’t sure what I am going on about then visit last Wednesday’s post and watch that video first, it will be a little clearer. It is not so drastic as it sounds, don’t worry, but I have been suffering from a bit of burnout and decided that an easy come – easy go art session, which didn’t have to result in anything, would help. I mean I did film the session but I wasn’t forcing myself to make anything ‘show-able’, it just so happens that a few projects did come out of it. And here is the second of those projects. I showed the first on Wednesday, another mixed media collage piece, which as it happens also had a butterfly too – I mean theme, much?!

I might show the other pieces over on instagram rather than as videos as they were super short, so keep your eye out for them. You will spot them as they are all the same color scheme. In the meantime, the colors I have used are all listed below and there is a close-up piccy too! But you knew that didn’t you?!

VIDEO: Answering Questions And Mixed Media Speed Art

 

I enjoy hearing about how people work and their creative process so when I recently got some questions about my process and how to cope with overthinking, a subject close to my heart as you know, I thought I would share my answers via this video. I also talk a little bit about burnout as I am just trying to work through a burnout at the moment.

Hopefully, you also enjoy hearing about other people’s creative processes and perhaps it will help you too with some of the tips I share or just by knowing that you aren’t the only one trying to work these things out!

Whilst I chat and answer the questions I’ve got a quick mixed media project to share as well, so I hope that you enjoy watching that too, and that it kicks off some ideas for your next project!

VIDEO: Mixed Media Art Journal Page Process – Random Face and Pattern

 

My mixed media art journal page share today is a little random! Well even more random then you would normally expect from me, or at least I think so! It has a random face and some pattern and mark making designs. I’ve used what was already on this junk journal page and added some images and more color to finish a mixed media art journal page that was started so long ago that I do not remember when I put the first colour down! It is kind of fun adding random elements to finish a page like this and highlight some of what was already there whilst adding new random elements!

So the close-up photograph is below as always, under the list of the products that I used to finish this mixed media art journal page.

VIDEO: Easy Acrylic Paint Background Mixed Media Technique

 

I’m keeping things simple today with a really easy, but totally effective, acrylic paint background. And for a bit of contrast I have also played with one of my geometric designs as I wanted to see how it would look on this background. So if you haven’t yet tried using your acrylic paints like a watercolor paint then you will enjoy playing with this easy acrylic paint background as it will ease you in to trying this technique in a no fear kind of way! It’s only a background after all!

And you can see that you can use it for pretty much any mixed media fun that you might want to add over the top as it just stays put as an acrylic paint background should! So try it in your next art journal, painting, mixed media or even card making project! And I have a close-up picture at the end of this post plus some links to other videos you might enjoy too!

VIDEO: Mixed Media Art Journal – Make A Shaped Page

 

I was flicking through my junk journal looking for a page to work on when a little left-over page caught my eye. So today I have the making of a shaped page to share with you from start to finish. It is always fun to change things up a but isn’t it? The picture above shows the front part of the project with the shaped page closed, scroll on down for all the products I used and to see the inside of the project too. You will also get a better look at the shaped page itself in the photo below.

My working title for this project is ‘windows and doors’ as it has been inspired by architecture but I am wondering if I should actual call it ‘Dolls House’.

You can find a list of my favorite and most used art supplies here.

 

 

SPOILER! In case you haven’t seen the video yet!

Yes, I made a little gift box of gel printing bits and bobs and if you are looking for some gel printing videos to get you going on your plate, or to inspire your next gel print session, then I have a growing list of gel print idea and project videos for you to watch!

SPOILER OVER!

 

I have some more mixed media art ideas videos for you too!

Don’t forget to share your box art with me!
