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: How To Make Small Scale Abstract Art For Cards – Part 3

Purple, blue and pink paint and doodle abstract art card made by Kim Dellow

 

It is here! My final project in my Small Scale Abstract Art series and this is a project that I have been calling either ‘purple’ or ‘swirl’ depending on what mood I am in! If you have missed the other two projects in this series then don’t forget to also watch the floral video and the ballpoint pen circles video to see how I did them all. But you can also see the projects all side by side at the end of this video today.

So you might remember that I mentioned that I was approaching my 10k subscriber milestone on YouTube in a recent video? And HUGE thank you everyone who has subscribed to my channel! Now that I am almost there will you help me pick a video to make to mark the occasion? I’ve got a poll running on YouTube or over on Patreon, so go check out the options and pick which one you would most like to see!

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!

Meanwhile, don’t forget that I have plenty of other creative inspiration on my channel for you! And I also have the abstract art card making video that I mention in today’s video on my channel in case you missed it!

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!

VIDEO: Easy Mixed Media Art Tutorial – Keys

Layered mixed media art project by Kim Dellow

 

It is my last video for 2018 and I thought it would be fun if we did some easy mixed media art together, what do you think? Everything you need for this project is listed under the video below, and remember you don’t have to use exactly what I have used, grab what you have in your stash. I go layer by layer through this project and give you techniques and ideas on what to do for each step and the great thing is that you can pause the video whenever you need to!

Feel free to use your favourite colors, products and marks to put your own unique spin on the project. I have used keys as my focal images and if you wanted to too then pop over to Patreon where you can download a reference photo for your own personal use (even if you aren’t one of my Patreons). But feel free to use whatever imagery you like and I give you some more ideas in the video too!

Once you have finished your project post it up on Instagram and tag me @kimdellow and use the hashtag #layerwithkimdellow so that I can come on over and take a look!

VIDEO: How To Do Watercolor Doodles

 

Watercolor doodle project in greens and blues and black by Kim Dellow

I love to watercolor doodle! I find it really relaxing for some reason. There is something about the way the water and color react together isn’t there? I just love watching it. And I thought that we could probably all do with something relaxing this week as December gets quite frantic trying to get things finished before Christmas, if you celebrate it, and also New Year too. I know I have been frantically trying to tick things off of my list so that I could take some days off over Christmas. But I have been trying so hard that I started to run out of steam, big time. So I have dialled it down a little bit. I have got almost enough finished that I can leave it for a week and pick it back up in January. But I am not quite there yet, hopefully, I will be by Friday.

So that is why we have a more relaxed and simple project video today with this watercolor doodle design. Now you might have seen it before if you follow me on Instagram. I have already posted the project but not the video to go with it. So here it is and if you want a close-up look at the water splash texture I talk about in the video then scroll on down to the picture at the bottom!

VIDEO: How To Build A Mixed Media Art Journal Using Minimal Layers

An art journal page built with minimal layers by Kim Dellow

 

I have an organic, or intuitive piece for you today and really it is one of my explorations into pattern and mark making as I try to build a page with minimal layers. But you can hear more about it in the video. It is all acrylics but I will call it mixed media anyway because I am using different types of acrylics, so I can maybe just about get away with calling it mixed media what do you think?

 

Check the list below for the colors and products that I used and of course there is a close-up photo at the end of the page for you! Have fun with your minimal layers!

VIDEO: Watercolor Swatch And Timelapse Abstract – Kwartscreations paints

watercolor swatch of new watercolors video by Kim Dellow

 

I have a watercolor swatch video for you this week. I’ve been watching the latest handmade watercolor paint trend with wide-eyed fascination and I thought I would join in and try some of the paints out myself. So I have bought myself some and I am sharing the watercolor swatch of my new paints along with a very quick timelapse abstract art project for those of you who want to see the paints in action!

The paints that I talk about in the video are listed below and don’t forget to let me know if you want to see some of the others I have bought too. I would love to know if you have recommendations for ones you have tried or even made yourself! So leave me a comment either below or over on YouTube.

VIDEO: How To Do The Watermark Resist Technique With Acrylic Paint or Ink

 

So you know how I like resist techniques right? I have been doing a few in different videos on my channel and I have another one for you today. This is the watermark resist using an embossing or watermark ink. You have probably seen the technique being done incoordination with other inks and watercolours right? Well I’m using an acrylics with my watermark resist today and showing you how you can get the look too.

This is a fun, magical technique which works well for art journaling, mixed media projects, card making alike so I hope that you have fun with it. I’m going to do mine as a basis of a floral illustration so watch that develop too in my video! The close up of the project and supplies are all below the video.

VIDEO: Junk Journal Tips – Bleed Through Pages Part 2

A doodle design in ink and pen and paint by Kim Dellow

 

I am working on another bleed through page in my junk journal this week. It follows on directly from my video last week when I worked on the bleed through page opposite to today’s page. I mean bleed through happens and you can either leave it, cover it or roll with it can’t you? So this week what do I do? You can see the whole process of what I do in my video and I hope it gives you some inspiration for your bleed through pages!

 

As always there is a close-up photo of the finished page below and the supplies list too!
