VIDEO: Easy Watercoloring Technique For Working On Non-Watercolor Paper

 

You know that I love watercolors don’t you? But sometimes I don’t actually use them on watercolor paper. When I am making cards I tend to use a smooth, heavy weight, ordinary cardstock which is totally not a watercolor paper! But I love using it because it is a lovely bright white and you can get some really interesting effects, textures and looks using watercolors on it. So my video today gives you an easy watercoloring technique and some pointers on how to use your watercolors on non-watercolor paper and I hope it will encourage you to try the cardstocks that you probably already have in your stash.

It is the same technique that I used for my shaped-edge article in the latest issue of Papercraft Essentials, issue 160. So check that out if you want to see how to add shaped edges to your cardmaking techniques tool kit! Oh and there is a lovely free stamp and coordinating die set and an ink pad too on the cover of this one, so you probably really want to get the mag for that! The technique is just a bonus! ;D

VIDEO: Mixed Media Art Journal Process – Gouache and Acrylic Paint Layers

 

 

This is a page of gouache and acrylic paint layers and it has been sat in my junk journal for months! Well, actually, it has been sat in my junk journal half finished for months, if I want to be accurate about it! This gouache and acrylic paint layers page started life as just a gouache paint experiment on gesso until I spotted it again this week and decided to finish it with some acrylic paint. But you can watch the whole gouache and acrylic paint layer process and listen to it’s painty story in my video today!

If you follow me over on instagram or have watched my DIY Stamp Carving Process video then you might recognise this design, if not then hop on over and check either of them out and say ‘hi’ whilst you are there!

As usual I have a list of the products I used for this gouache and acrylic paint page below the video and a close-up picture of the design is there too!

VIDEO: Easy Layered Acrylic Paint Abstract Art Journal Page

 

I have an easy art journal page for you today using different layered acrylic paint techniques. It is one of my ‘scrappy’ pages that I have been working on recently! Well I am kind of calling them ‘scrappy’ because they start from leftovers on the page and then they end up a little scrappy too, but hopefully not in a bad way! I quite like the textures all the layered acrylic paint gives to this piece. I also really like how the dry brushed paint picks up the stencil layer. I wasn’t expecting that as I didn’t think there would be enough physical texture there.

So have fun with your layered acrylic paint work today! And don’t forget all the products I have used in my layered acrylic paint piece are below the video, as well as the link to the ‘scrappy’ doodle page I was talking about in the video.

VIDEO: Easy Doodle Exercise For Your Mixed Media Art Journals

 

Do you fancy a quick doodle? I hope you do as I have an easy doodle exercise that I thought we could do together, so grab a colorful page and some pens and lets play! It’s a great creative exercise for warming up or for practising your art motifs and also for letting go and getting use to just mark making. Today’s exercise is also about contrasts and using them to great effect in your art so look out for all the contrasts that you can make and use on your page.

As always there is a list of the products that I have used under the video and a close-up of the page. And if you need some more help with what to doodle perhaps my video about art motifs might help! But above all just have fun with it and I can’t wait to see what you come up with, all my social media links are below so do link me in on any of your easy doodle exercise project shares!

VIDEO: Easy Gelatos Technique For Adding Color And Texture

 

I thought we could all do with some color! So in my Wednesday art video this week I am adding lots of color and texture using a really easy Gelatos technique. I mean, to be honest, you can try this technique with any of your colouring products, but I thought I would go full rainbow with my Gelatos and just share another way that you can use yours to add layers of interest to a piece. We often grab for lots of different products to build interesting layers in our mixed media, art journals and even card making don’t we? Sometimes you just don’t need to and just a few choice products will be fine and you can still build layers of interest.

So have fun trying this easy Gelatos technique out and let me know how you get on! There is a close-up photo of the page at the bottom of this post, so do scroll down to see it!

VIDEO: Intentional Art – Mixed Media Art Journal Page

 

Do you remember my video on Sunday when I talked about, and showed you, an unintentional art journal page? Well today I have the companion piece to that one, but this one is an intentional art piece, in fact that is what I decided to call it, ‘Intentional’. So I have been thinking about my creative processes again and I’m hoping that my describing them and the different ways that I create can help you when you think about your processes. Sometimes it is helpful to think about your process and work out what works for you and what doesn’t and what you need to do more of or less of.

And also I hope that it helps you to worry less about if the way you put your mixed media art journal pages together is some how wrong or missing some magic ingredient, as there are lots of creative processes and your creative process is great and yours to enjoy! Don’t forget that all the products used today are listed below as usual!

VIDEO: Unintentional Art – Mixed Media Art Journal Page

 

Ok, so this is an odd one. I had started my day full of those noble intentions, you know the type of thing? I had plans, deadlines and things to get done and look what happened instead! Some unintentional art! I don’t know how else really to describe it, everything about this page is unintentional. But you will hear all about my unintentional art in the video. When was your last piece of unintentional art? And what were you meant to be doing instead?

Ho hum, I will get those other videos I mentioned done, I promise! In the meantime enjoy this one and as always I have the products used in the video listed below and a close-up of the final page too.
