VIDEO: Easy Layering Acrylic Paint Techniques For Mixed Media Art

 

My Sunday art video this week is only short but it is packed with techniques! I’m sharing lots of easy layering techniques for using with your acrylic paints and I know, the project looks way too simple to have lots of different techniques doesn’t it? Well you know me, I love a bit of simple designing, I do lean towards clean and simple design again and again, I mean mixed media doesn’t have to be complex now does it? And simple doesn’t have to mean not full of ideas and techniques!

So I hope you catch all the easy layering techniques I share, don’t blink otherwise you might miss them! And if you are looking for the butterflies that I used on this project then go join my Patreon page to grab them and my tutorials and more art sharing too! You can join for as little as $1 ($1+EU tax if you are in the EU) and cancel or change your pledge as you need, did you know that?

There is a close-up piccy of the butterflies below and the supplies list too!

VIDEO: Mini Abstract Acrylic Paintings And An Idea For Using Them!

 

I am painting some mini abstract acrylic paint pieces today and I thought I would share them with you in my Wednesday art video and also turn them into something useful, not just pretty! You will see what at the end of the video but I am sure you can guess from the photo can’t you?! I am also just sharing a little personal, where I am, artistically and on the business side of things,  at the moment chat.

And in the video I mention that I want to build a community over on Patreon, well I have set up my page so go pop on over to find out more. I will probably do a whole separate blog post and video about it soon, so think of this as the soft launch! But my idea is that it will be like a subscription service that you can pledge what you want to and get extra art learning, inspiration and behind the scenes from me.  So do take and look!

Enjoy today’s video, the product list is below and a close up photo of the finished projects is below too!

VIDEO: Mail Art – Abstract Acrylic Painting Envelope

 

It’s great fun doing mail art isn’t it? I haven’t done any for ages, well unless you count the gift box of arty goodies that I decorated recently that is, and I thought that as I was sending off some arty bits and bobs for the recent background collaboration that it would be the perfect opportunity to do a touch of mail art. So my video share today is the mail art I made and I hope it fills you full of arty inspiration to get you making and painting today!

Above is a picture of the front and if you scroll down you will find a picture of the design on the back. I also share what I sent in the parcel in the video too.

VIDEO: Easy Acrylic Paint Background Mixed Media Technique

 

I’m keeping things simple today with a really easy, but totally effective, acrylic paint background. And for a bit of contrast I have also played with one of my geometric designs as I wanted to see how it would look on this background. So if you haven’t yet tried using your acrylic paints like a watercolor paint then you will enjoy playing with this easy acrylic paint background as it will ease you in to trying this technique in a no fear kind of way! It’s only a background after all!

And you can see that you can use it for pretty much any mixed media fun that you might want to add over the top as it just stays put as an acrylic paint background should! So try it in your next art journal, painting, mixed media or even card making project! And I have a close-up picture at the end of this post plus some links to other videos you might enjoy too!

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: Art Journal - Easy Stenciling With A Kitchen Sponge

 

You guys know that I love a bit of easy stenciling don’t you? I mean give me a piece of paper and a pair of scissors and I’ll give you a stencil and mask to play with! It’s so lo-tech but I’ve gone even lower tech today because I have re-purposed a kitchen sponge – don’t worry it won’t be going back into the kitchen after I’ve been using it! – to make a fun and effective easy stenciling art journal page. I mean there really is no excuse for not having a go at this project!

I’ve gone for lots of texture so watch how I build it up and don’t forget to scroll down for the list of paints I’ve used and a close-up of that texture too. I’m looking forward to seeing all your kitchen sponge-stippled projects!

Oh and by the way, John Bloodworth, aka Gentleman Crafter has interviewed me for his Worldwide Wednesday series on his blog if you are interested in reading more about me! He also has a YouTube channel so do pop over and say hi to him and subscribe to his channel too!

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.

If you need some more help with masking borders using tape then watch my gel printing on card blank video as I do go into it in more detail in that video.
