My Life Book 2020 Summit Interview Is Up!

Page from Kim Dellow's Daily Doodle Diary

Today is the day!

My interview with Tamara Laporte, the creative force behind the Life Book Creativity and Welbeing Summit, is up! You can learn some more about me in the interview then have a go at my activity!

For my activity I thought I would share more about my Daily Doodle Diary practice. Since I started doing it I have found that it has really helped both my creativity and also my wellbeing too. So I thought it would be perfect for the summit and I have some tips and exercise to help you get started on your own regular Daily Doodle Diary practice. 

 You can watch the interview and then do my creativity and wellbeing activity over on the summit page and I hope you enjoy it!

VIDEO: Acrylic Paint, Watercolour And Ink Art

Acrylic Paint, Watercolour And Ink feather by Kim Dellow

I thought that I would work on one of the backgrounds I have been making recently. So this piece starts on an acrylic paint background and I layer it with a whole host of different materials.

Acrylic ink, brush pens, ball point pens and watercolour paint all go into the layers on this piece today. But even though it uses a lot of materials, it did not take a lot of time to do. Well, I suppose it helped having the background already made and ready to work on! It is a great art cheat tip!

VIDEO: EASY Watercolour Backgrounds Made With Acrylic Paint To Try

5 watercolour backgrounds made with acrylic paint by Kim Dellow

I have some fun backgrounds in my art video today for you to try in your next art session. They look like watercolor backgrounds but they are all done with acrylic paints.

But why do them with acrylic paint instead of watercolors? Well, you can of course do them with your watercolors but if you like to layer your pieces, like I do, then starting with acrylic paint backgrounds can be really useful can’t it? Because you can layer up over the top and not worry about the layer underneath reactivating and mixing with the new layer.

And you can make a whole batch of these backgrounds and not have to worry about remembering what you used to make them with! Because they are compatible with lots of materials that you might want to use on them.

Very handy backgrounds!

VIDEO: Fabric Art And Craft Challenge

Painted fabric DIY book cover by Kim Dellow

It is art challenge time and I have teamed up with Gerry van der Velden from Gerry’s Craft Room to bring you some inspiration for using fabric in your art and craft projects. So in this collaboration we both went off and made some projects and the only rule was that they had to include fabric.

And it was kind of lucky because this month I have been making DIY art journals and sketchbooks with my $5 and above Patreon members. So I decided to make a fabric book cover with my Patrons and then decorate it for my collaboration with Gerry! Yay!

You can see the decorating of this cover below in my art fabric video and if you want to see how I made the cover, and the whole book, then come join me on Patreon!  (Not sure what Patreon is then watch this short video explainer!)

But I don’t want to spoil the abstract painting process for you! I just thought I would tease you before you watch the video.

Hope that you enjoy it, go grab a cuppa and a nibble and I will catch you on the other side.

A colorful mixed media card by Kim Dellow

Sometimes I plan my art, yes I do, and I’ve talked about the power of planned art before in my videos. It can be a really useful tool to have in your creative process repertoire. So I’m chatting about it again today, because this piece is partly planned art and partly unplanned art.

But I have some other things to share with you in my planned art – unplanned art video and they are some of what is keeping me so busy at the moment! I have some heads-up about my new and exciting Patreon changes, which you can also read about on my Patreon Page. Plus I am writing a creative exercising book/ download that you are gonna wanna be signed up to my newsletter to get your hands on when it is finished!

Anyway, you can hear more in the video whilst you watch this project evolve!

VIDEO: Mixing Acrylic, Acryl Gouache and Gouache Paint Layers

Layers of acrylic paint and gouache by Kim Dellow

I am flexing my mixed media muscles today with a double page spread in my junk journal that is all about experimenting with gouache and acrylic paint.

You have seen me use gouache before, I go through my gouache phases! And you have seen me use it with acrylic paint in the same piece. But usually it will be as just a top layer or on a separate section.

But for this project I really wanted to see how gouache and acrylic paint play together when you layer them up and just alternate between the two.

It can be hard to tell when I am using which paint as the colors are very close to each other, but as you watch through the video I have try to note which type of paint I am using so keep an eye out for the captions!
