VIDEO: Using Embossing Powder With Stencils

VIDEO: Mixed Media Technique - Using Embossing Powders With Stencils by Kim Dellow

 

I’m back today with a technique for using embossing powder with stencils. But I am not just using one embossing powder, oh no, that would be too easy! I am going to use three and I’ve got the whole process for you in my video today. It is a great technique for your mixed media, art journaling and even your card making too so have fun trying out this embossing powder with stencils technique!

Now, I’m using some lovely free gifts that I got from magazines for my make today. So hopefully this will give you some ideas for how to use them if you have them, or a heads-up if you haven’t and you want to get them! There might also be a shameless plug for one of my recent articles too! Oops!

I’m using the Dragonfly Dreams Die and Stamp set from Simply Cards and Papercraft Issue 171 and the Hexagon Stencil from Apple Blossom Magazine and kit issue 2 and you can find both of these over at Craft Stash (they ship worldwide!) and I’ve put direct links to each of the magazines in the supplies list below.

Remember, there are close-up pictures of the project at the bottom of this post!

VIDEO: How to Start Mixed Media Art – A Creative Exercise Technique

VIDEO: How to Start Mixed Media Art - A Creative Exercise Technique

I wasn’t really sure what to call today’s video so I am going with ‘How To Start Mixed Media Art’. But we aren’t just going to start some art. I’m going to take you through all the steps to get you through to a finished piece, actually a collection of three finished pieces. Hey, why do one when you can do three, right?!

The idea is that you can add this exercise to your mixed media art and art journaling practice to help you to overcome overthinking and being too critical about your art too early on in the process. Which I know many of you suffer from, I suffer from it a lot myself.

And if you are not an overthinker and don’t have a problem with your inner critic then try this exercise as a warm-up to get you in the mood for your next big art session, it works great for that too!

VIDEO: A Fun Technique For Using Mermaid Markers With Stencils

Video: A Fun Technique For Using Mermaid Marker Brush Pens With Stencils by Kim Dellow

 

Have you used the Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers yet? If you haven’t come across them, they are a brush pen, much like a waterbrush, but they come pre-filled with a dye-based ink. Now I bought myself a pack a few months ago meaning to do a review video, so shout if you would still like me to do one! Instead today I have a technique for using these Mermaid Markers with stencils to get a seriously cool effect!

Don’t worry if you do not have the Mermaid Markers because I give you some suggestions in the video for other products that you can use instead and that you might already have in your stash. Check out the picture below for a close-up of the results of this fun technique!

Art Journal Page Process – Book Page Flower with a video by Kim Dellow

 

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2018 and a new creative year for us all. To kick off this creative year I have another in my art journal page process videos showcasing the ‘what happened next’ story for one of the pages that I started in the 12 Tips For Starting Art Journal Pages Using Acrylic paint video. This was the page that had the old book page inclusions so you can see what happened to it!

This is now the fourth page in this series and I’ve put the links to the other project videos at the end of the blog post, in case you missed them or wanted to refresh your memory.

VIDEO: My Favourite Projects 2017

A summary of my favourite projects from 2017 with a vlog by Kim Dellow

 

It is that time again when we take the opportunity of that end of the year lull, before we gear-up and get cracking with the new year, to take a step back, reflect on our creative 2017 and pick out some of our favourite projects. Have you done this yet? I would love to know if you have so please feel free to let me know in the comments and share links to it if you have them!

I’ve done mine as a video this year and shared a little of the back story to my 2017 creative life. I think it does help to do a review so that you can see the direction you have been and where you are going, or at least hopefully.

Sometimes it is important to take stock, be kind to yourself and look at your work with fresh eyes. Everything moves so fast, with the constant need to be doing something new, that we often forget the work we have put in over the year. So it is a great time to just pause and congratulate yourself for everything you have done, even if you haven’t had a chance to do a lot creatively this year, what you have done is amazing! So go look back over your art journals, cards, sketchbooks or whatever works you have from 2017, before we all start racing ahead with 2018!

VIDEO: How To Make A Winter Texture Art Journal Page

How To Make A Winter Texture Art Journal Page with a video by Kim Dellow

 

Is it snowing where you are? Well, it is definitely snowing in my art journal today! I have a little Winter texture art journal page inspiration for you and a technique for making a nice DIY snowy scene that you can use as a backdrop for something else or as it is to make lovely abstract Winter art. I’ve used a textured gel for my scene to give it a really frosty feel but you could easily use other gels, mediums, pastes to make your project.

As always you can find the products that I used below and a close-up of the Winter texture in a photograph near the bottom of the post so just scroll down!

Art journal Page Process - Tags and Hearts with a video by Kim Dellow

 

Do you think you will get to do some art today? I know! It’s Christmas Eve and there is lots of cooking and wine drinking that needs to be done! So maybe not, but in case you do, or in case you need a quick art infusion to inspire you I have another ‘what happened next’ art journal page process video for one of those starter pages from my ’12 Tips For Starting Art Journal Pages Using Acrylic paint’ video. Now this time I am purposely making two individual but coordinated pages, so you can see how they develop.

I’m also using a few different design tricks to bring these pages together, so let me know which ones you spot and which ones you find yourself using in your pages. Scroll down to see the close-up of the swirly left-hand page below the video and supplies list!

Art Journal Process - Swirl And Flourish with a video by Kim Dellow

My share today is an art journal page process video and as promised it is another continuing story for a page that I started in the 12 Tips For Starting Art Journal Pages Using Acrylic Paint video. Don’t forget to watch that first, if you missed it, so that you can see how this page began!  There is a lot of painted texture on this starter page so I have done my best to make good use of it and picked techniques and colors to enhance it. But you can see all the steps in the video!

Oh and you might also spot that I made good use of the paper that I tested out that DIY carrot roller stamp on from the My Favourite DIY Stamp Carving Materials video! I’ve put a close up of the two parts of this project below the video and of course you will find the product list below the video too.

It is quite different to the Rainbow Bubbles art journal page that I shared with you in my last video isn’t it? And you will remember that that page was also one of the starter pages from the 12 Tips For Starting Art Journal Pages Using Acrylic Paint video. I’ve got more ‘what happened next’ art journal pages to share so stay tuned!  It is kind of fun seeing where they all end up!

Art Journal Page Process - Rainbow Bubbles with video by Kim Dellow

 

I have a new art journal page process video for you today and this is the continuing story for one of the pages that I started in my ’12 Tips For Starting Art Journal Pages Using Acrylic Paint’ video from a couple of weeks ago. So if you missed that film watch it first so that you can see how this page started!

I had no plans for this page when I started but I was thinking about making something with circles so you can see how the art journal page progressed from start to finish and there is a close-up photo for you below as well as all of the products that I used in the video in case you wanted to get your hands on them!

VIDEO: DIY Stamp Carving Start To Finish Process

DIY Stamp Carving Start To Finish Process with a video by Kim Dellow

 

If you dropped past my blog at the end of November then you probably spotted my Favorite DIY Stamp Carving materials blog post? I shared some of my favorite products for carving your own stamps plus a quick simple how-to carve and an alternative idea for if you don’t own any of the products that I suggested! Yes, that’s right, it was the carrot carving video! Have you tried it yet?

Well, I am back today with a full stamp carving process video sharing how to carve a more intricate design from start to finish. I have lots of tips to share plus a bonus tip at the end of the video just for those of you that make it all the way through *wink!

I will be linking this project up to Julie Fei-Fan Balzer’s CarveDecember challenge over on my Instagram feed. I hope you have been doing the same with yours? Hopefully, I will get to do some more because I do need the practice! Enjoy the video and don’t forget that all the products I used are listed below it.
