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: 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.

VIDEO: Drawing With Ink – Art Journal Doodles With A Fountain Pen

 

Do you use a fountain pen in your art journaling and if you do what ink do you use? Recently I have been doing more fountain pen art. I really love the feel and flow of using a fountain pen. It is great for doodles and also for sketching too but I wanted to find out if I could use it in my art journaling as I haven’t yet tried it in my journaling until today. Have you used your fountain pen in your art journal? Let me know, I would love to hear your experiences!

Now if you are into your fountain pens then you might know that finding a waterproof or truly water resistant ink for the fountain pen is quite hard. So I am trying out one today and sharing the fountain pen art results in my Wednesday art video. Plus I have some general art journaling tips for you too, so it isn’t just all about the pen and ink!

As usually I have listed all the products used below the video and there are links to other videos that might interest you too at the bottom of this page, so just scroll down.

VIDEO: From Art Journal Fail To New Art

 

 

I warn you this video starts with a rather nasty art journal fail! I mean it is ugly. A catastrophe! A mistake! A mess! Don’t say that I didn’t warn you! But don’t worry because I save the page and make some new art from the mess and I hope that it puts you in the mood to revisit some of your own not so happy pages. I am also kind of hoping that it encourages you to not be too over critical when you do fail. It happens, it is no big deal and you learn so much from it too! So own your mistakes and go out there and make some great art from them.

 

Pep talk over! Let’s do this thing! Oh and don’t forget that there is a close-up of some of the details of the new page at the bottom of this post.

VIDEO: Art Journal Process – Easy Flowers And My Thought Processes Behind This Page

 

You know when you have half an idea in your head but you aren’t really sure where it will take you? Well this easy flowers art journal page is definitely one of those! I thought I would take you through my full thought process for how this easy flowers painting art journal page came into being and I really hope that hearing about some of the decisions I made and the thoughts in my head as those easy flowers developed will help you appreciate your own art process and some of the decisions that you make when arting.

You can even walk through this make and see what decisions you might have taken, if you would have done the same or something completely different. I mean that is the fun of this isn’t it? We all look at art through our own eyes and bring to it our unique understanding and knowledge.

As always you will find a close-up picture of the finished page below the video, as well as the product list and a bonus product! I didn’t use it in the video but I did talk about drawing on acetate and if you need a pen for that then you will find it listed below!

VIDEO: Using Acrylic Paint Like Watercolor – Abstract Painting

Using Acrylic Paint Like Watercolor – Abstract Painting

 

I’m using acrylic paint like watercolor in today’s video show and tell, to make some lovely, bright and translucent paint layers. It’s a great technique and fun to do! I think that one of the things that I love about acrylic paint is that it is just so versatile. I mean you guys know that I adore watercolor paint, but I also love using acrylic paint like watercolor paint to get the strong bright colors that acrylic paint can give you.

So I’ve made an abstract page in one of my neatest art journals for this acrylic paint like watercolor share. And you can take a peek into what else is in this art journal too in the video! If you enjoy it then I also have links to more videos related to this one below and some more photos of the finished page too, so don’t forget to scroll down after you have watched the video.

VIDEO: Art Journal – Iridescent Acrylic Paint Leaves

Iridescent leaves painted with acrylic paint in a junk journal by Kim Dellow

 

More acrylic paint leaves for you today and a video of my latest Junk Journal experiments. For this video I’ve been playing around with painting acrylic paint leaves using those wonderful iridescent Pebeo paints that I am totally hooked on at the moment. But my acrylic paint leaves are different today as I’ve painted them as shapes rather than using the negative space technique that I used in my last video. I don’t know what I am in such a leafy mood, perhaps it was all of our chat about art motifs recently?!

If you want to see the leaves in their full shiny iridescent glory then scroll on down to the close up photograph at the bottom of the page!

VIDEO: Art Journal - Acrylic paint and Gouache Paint

 

It’s art journal time! I thought I would change pace today, well it is Sunday after all, and share an art journal page process video. This page started with some paint left over from another project that I wanted to use up, so I had no real plans for it. I’ve built it up with gouache and acrylic paint and also some monoprinting with one of the petite gel press shapes.

To see more I’ve a close up photograph under the supplies list!

VIDEO: Where Do You Get Your Ideas? Tips For Artists and Crafters

Two Art journal pages with a video and chat about how to get ideas.

 

Where do you get your ideas? How do you keep inspired and do you have any tricks for when you aren’t feeling inspired? I’m sharing some of my go-to habits and ways that I generate ideas and keep inspired but I also want to hear yours too, so do share, either here or over on my YouTube channel.

I’m also practising my brush work again but this time with two art journal pages and you can see my whole process. These are projects number three and four in a series of four. If you missed the first one in the series then you can see it in the video I posted on Sunday where I shared some of my art practice tips. But don’t worry, you haven’t missed project two! That one will be posted this Sunday coming ( 25th February 2018).
