VIDEO: Watercolor And Ink Doodle artwork – Trying New Products

Watercolor and ink doodle by Kim Dellow

Doodling is very much on my mind again this week and I have a watercolor and ink doodle to share with you this time in my weekly art week. If you missed it last week I was using acrylic paint and soft pastels to make a doodle. But you know how much I like to mix up my media! So this week I am testing out some new-to-me watercolor paints and paper and talking through my process for testing new products too.

Enjoy the watercolor doodle and there is a side piccy of the final project as well as a peek of my Daily Doodle Diary below!

VIDEO: Making An Acrylic Paint And Pastel Doodle Painting

Acrylic paint and soft pastel doodle on kraft paper by Kim Dellow

 

I thought I would break out the soft pastels for today’s pastel doodle project. Do you use them? They aren’t the first coloring material that I usually reach for but I thought it would be fun play with them and see what I could do. I am using them with acrylic paint so I have some tips on how to use paper masks to get beautiful block shapes and then lots of tips on how to use soft pastels. 

 

Let me know how you get on with them and scroll on down this post to see a some more of the texture of the pastels on the kraft paper I am using.

VIDEO: Saving Messy Art PLUS DIY Sticky Masks

Adding pen work to a gel print by Kim Dellow

I love messy art! I think it is totally part of the process and has so many important uses for us as artists. But I also know that messy art can be frustrating sometimes and we might end up feeling that we have gone too far and need to ditch the art or recycle it. 

If you have gone through this too then I have a piece and some ideas that will help you today. But also today I am sharing a DIY adhesive mask trick, so great if you don’t have the masking film I have been using in the last two videos. And I have a trick for bringing two completely different pieces together as if they were always meant to be together. 

Scroll on down for the supplies and a picture of the inside of the card!

VIDEO: More Gel Printing Ideas – Reuse Masking Film!

Yellow and green gel print with painted and pencil circles around a masked area.

Gel printing cards again this week and sticking with that double-sided card idea, if you missed it check last week’s post for the first card in this series. This week I found a couple of faces in the gel print design! So had to try and bring them out! But faces aren’t the only thing I thought I would try out this week. I thought I would see if I could stretch my stash and reuse an old piece of masking film, one I have used before. Will it still work?

 

Find out in the video and you can find a picture of the inside and the outside of this week’s double-sided card below.

VIDEO: How To Make Gel Printed Greeting Cards With A Difference – Card 1

A greeting card made with gel printing by Kim Dellow

 

I decided to get my gel plate out to make some gel printed greeting cards. But these are gel printed greeting cards with a difference! So if you are looking for something unique that adds that little extra special experience for the recipient of the card then have a go at some double sided printing! I know, right?! There is all that lovely space on a card we should use it!

Well, I show you how this week and I have three cards in total to share with you, but as the footage added up to 2 hours worth I decided to split the video into three! So this is part one today and then the next two gel printed greeting card inspiration will follow over the next couple of weeks, so don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel if you aren’t already and click the notification bell so you don’t miss when they go live. Each card turned out quite different so you are going to want to see them all!

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!
