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: Gel Press – Printing Techniques – How to Use a Gel Plate To Build Layers

Gel Press Printed hearts

 

I’ve got my Gel Press gel printing plate out so I thought it would be fun to share some of my top tips for building textured layers in your monoprints. I’ve got lots of techniques and ideas for you so I hope that you find them useful! I’ve also followed the heart theme from my Simple Mask and Heat embossing art journal that I shared on Wednesday, well it is February, and Valentine’s day is getting closer after all! But that is not the only thing I’ve used from that video as you will see!

These techniques will work on whatever you use for your monoprinting so have fun trying them out and there is a close-up of some of the hearts below the video, in case you wanted to see some of the details.

VIDEO: Simple Mask And Heat Embossing Technique – Art Journal Page

Simple Mask And Heat Embossing Technique art journal page

 

I’ve got a fun heat embossing technique for you today. It is so simple that you will wonder why you don’t use it with your heat embossing all of the time! It is a really great way to stretch your stash and make more out of your stamps, particularly your background stamps, texture stamps or pattern stamps. With this really simple technique you can make something unique to you but with still using something that everyone can buy!

For my demo of this technique I have made an art journal page but this simple mask and heat embossing technique can be used in your card making, painting and mixed media projects too. So I hope you have lots of fun with it and don’t forget that the products I have used are listed below the video and there is also a close-up photo of the finished page below too!

Now if you want some help or ideas for using your MISTI, or other positioning tool, with your art journaling then I have a couple of videos showing you how I use it. One is the dragonfly art journal page and the other is the rainbow butterfly page.  And I have another heat embossing technique to share also in the dragonfly art journal page video.

I really love this simple mask technique and you have seen me use it before like when I used it with paint to make an easy abstract art journal page. So I hope this heat embossing technique today gives you some more ideas on how to use simple masks! Let me know how you plan to use it next!

VIDEO: How To Use Inks – 10 Ideas For Using Acrylic Inks

various ideas for using acrylic ink

 

Inks are great aren’t they? I mean I use a lot of acrylic paint but I do love using acrylic inks too. I love drawing with them but they are fabulous for all sorts of techniques and mark making, so I thought it would be fun to share some ideas for how to get the most out of your inks. Now I am using acrylic inks here but you can easily use other inks, drawing inks and even liquid watercolors instead in a lot of the techniques that I am sharing today.

So have a play and let me know which techniques you love and are going to try out next! Oh and let me know what inks of fluid colors you are enjoying using at the moment! And don’t forget to scroll down to see the close-up a texture from one of the techniques I use in this video.

VIDEO: Testing Iridescent Acrylic Paint - Flourish Flower Art Journal Page by Kim Dellow

 

I’m testing out some acrylic paints today and sharing how I test out new paint. The paints under the arty microscope in my video are the Pebeo Studio DYNA Iridescent acrylic paints, now these aren’t new paints, they have been around for a while but they are new to me and I’m just giving them a test drive to see how they work. But I would love to hear about your experiences with them if you have tried them.

I’m also sharing a couple of other things that I am also testing out today, a technique and a style, so I hope you enjoy watching the process. As always the products that I have used are listed below the video plus there is a close-up photo of the finished project too.

They are so shiny! Oh and look what I found whilst I was uploading this video to YouTube…it’s an amazing paint pouring video from the Debs At Acrylic Pouring Channel using the Pebeo iridescent acrylic paint. Yum results!  I keep meaning to try out paint pouring but still haven’t given it a go. Have you tried it yet? Got any favourite videos or tips you would like to share about paint pouring?

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2018 and a new creative year for us all. To kick off this creative year I have another in my art journal page process videos showcasing the ‘what happened next’ story for one of the pages that I started in the 12 Tips For Starting Art Journal Pages Using Acrylic paint video. This was the page that had the old book page inclusions so you can see what happened to it!

This is now the fourth page in this series and I’ve put the links to the other project videos at the end of the blog post, in case you missed them or wanted to refresh your memory.

VIDEO: How To Make A Winter Texture Art Journal Page

How To Make A Winter Texture Art Journal Page with a video by Kim Dellow

 

Is it snowing where you are? Well, it is definitely snowing in my art journal today! I have a little Winter texture art journal page inspiration for you and a technique for making a nice DIY snowy scene that you can use as a backdrop for something else or as it is to make lovely abstract Winter art. I’ve used a textured gel for my scene to give it a really frosty feel but you could easily use other gels, mediums, pastes to make your project.

As always you can find the products that I used below and a close-up of the Winter texture in a photograph near the bottom of the post so just scroll down!

Art journal Page Process - Tags and Hearts with a video by Kim Dellow

 

Do you think you will get to do some art today? I know! It’s Christmas Eve and there is lots of cooking and wine drinking that needs to be done! So maybe not, but in case you do, or in case you need a quick art infusion to inspire you I have another ‘what happened next’ art journal page process video for one of those starter pages from my ’12 Tips For Starting Art Journal Pages Using Acrylic paint’ video. Now this time I am purposely making two individual but coordinated pages, so you can see how they develop.

I’m also using a few different design tricks to bring these pages together, so let me know which ones you spot and which ones you find yourself using in your pages. Scroll down to see the close-up of the swirly left-hand page below the video and supplies list!

Can you see the stencil texture? That is just using heavy body acrylic paint. It is a lovely texture. You can also see some of the texture left over from a previous project where I cleaned paint off of some punchinella onto these pages.

So what theme or themes did you think of? I would love to know, so leave me a comment either here or over on YouTube.

Can’t wait to see all your doodles this week!

VIDEO: Acrylic Paint Glazing And Tinted Gels and Paint Art Journal Page

Acrylic glazing art journal page by Kim Dellow. There is a video tutorial too!

I’ve been playing with acrylic glazing liquid this week and for my video tutorial I’ve used glazing in a way you might not be used to seeing it being used. Usually glazing is used in the latter stages of a painting project to shift the colour of a piece or unify and harmonise it. In my art journal page I’ve used it early on in the process to bring my tinted gel and paint stencil element together with the some old book page texture. I’ve also used it as a base to add more colour to. You can see all about it in the video and see how this page started too.

It kind of looks Autumnal doesn’t it? But it was never my intention to make an Autumnal art journal page but the start of the new season here in the UK must have had a bigger influence on me than I had thought! Do you find the seasons influencing your art when you least expect it? What seasonal projects have you been doing this week?

If you are wondering, the stencil is actually one I made myself and those of you that have popped into my blog or YouTube channel before would have seen it a few times. But if you haven’t then you can find out how I made it in my Moroccan tile blog post.
