VIDEO: How To Paint A Simple And Colorful Acrylic Paint Background

How To Paint A Simple And Colorful Acrylic Paint Background with a single flower illustration by Kim Dellow

If you have ever found yourself struggling with complex backgrounds or perhaps you don’t have a lot of time but you NEED to art, (I know that feeling!) then today’s tip and art video inspiration is, hopefully, going to hit the spot for you! Because today I am sharing one of the quickest ways to build up a simple, colorful acrylic paint background.

You can still build up interest, texture and a colorful acrylic paint background with just a simple tool, the good old plastic card. You know the old credit card, or gift card?! This little tool definitely deserves a revisit every now and again. So I have a simple, colorful acrylic paint background and a flower sketch to share with you as part of my #KimDellowFloralJune Project.

And don’t forget that as well as the flower art on YouTube I have some creative exercises on Patreon too to help you expand your mixed media flower art. (Not sure what Patreon is then watch this short video explainer!)

VIDEO: Simple Mixed Media Flower Canvas

I am trying to recharge and refresh some old canvases and this week I thought I would ‘save’ this mini canvas with a simple mixed media flower. It is very abstract but fun to do. Now I start with a yellow underpainting and you will see why in the video! So enjoy watching the process and having a play yourself on one of your old canvases.

And don’t forget to share any projects on the #KimDellowFloralJune hashtag over on instagram

I have also been sharing some fun floral creative exercises over on Patreon for if you wanted to stretch your floral art practice or just try something different! (Not sure what Patreon is then watch this short video explainer!)

VIDEO: Layering Acrylics Like Watercolors

Bright abstract floral in pink, yellow and teal mixed media art by Kim Dellow

We all love layering acrylics, don’t we? And I have been doing lots of layering recently with my Keep On Layering Exercises over the last couple of weeks but how about using the other thing I love to do? Using acrylic paint like it is a watercolor  and layering like that? 

It is definitely more challenging but just as fun and I’m sharing a project in my video today that uses that technique. But you will see that it did not completely the way I had intended when I set out to do this!

VIDEO: How To Start A Page From The Focal Image

A colorful art journal page with a central hare image made by Kim Dellow

Today I thought we could have a play with the whole art journal or mixed media project making process and turn it on it’s head! Reverse it! Make the page backwards! Ok, so what I really mean is let’s just start with the focal image and see how we can make the art from there. What steps will we need to do and how can we build the piece with an image in mind but not the final project in mind?

Intrigued? Then watch the video below, try it yourself and share the results with me over on social media. I’m @kimdellow on Instagram!

Oh and by the way, the Hare stamp is a DIY craft foam stamp and you can make one yourself. I have a template for you to download and an in-depth ‘how-to make’ video when you join either the Art Explorers or Process Addicts tier on Patreon.

(Not sure what Patreon is then watch this short video explainer!)

And then I have a fun step by step mixed media project that takes you through all the layers from start to finish to build an art journal page or a mixed media project.

VIDEO: Layer With Me Step By Step

Colorful abstract flowers layer with me project by Kim Dellow

Welcome to your ‘Layer With Me’ video and it is here as a big thank you to you for getting me to 10K subs on YouTube. You voted for it and it is finally here! So I hope you enjoy it. Remember to watch it through, then bookmark the video to work through the layers at your own speed, pausing when you need to!

So the idea of my ‘Layer With Me’ videos, both this one and the first one I did, is that you can make your own piece with me. I go through each step and you can follow along then pause as you need to to finish each layer. If you are new to mixed media art it is a great way to build up confidence. And if you are a bit further along then you can change it up as you like and I have some tips and ideas on how as we go through.

Then when you have done your project, link me up to the finished piece on social media and my links are all below. For quick reference I am @kimdellow on most things including Instagram in case you didn’t know.

Have fun and I can not wait to see the results.

VIDEO: Watercolor And Ink Doodle artwork – Trying New Products

Watercolor and ink doodle by Kim Dellow

Doodling is very much on my mind again this week and I have a watercolor and ink doodle to share with you this time in my weekly art week. If you missed it last week I was using acrylic paint and soft pastels to make a doodle. But you know how much I like to mix up my media! So this week I am testing out some new-to-me watercolor paints and paper and talking through my process for testing new products too.

Enjoy the watercolor doodle and there is a side piccy of the final project as well as a peek of my Daily Doodle Diary below!

VIDEO: Making An Acrylic Paint And Pastel Doodle Painting

Acrylic paint and soft pastel doodle on kraft paper by Kim Dellow

 

I thought I would break out the soft pastels for today’s pastel doodle project. Do you use them? They aren’t the first coloring material that I usually reach for but I thought it would be fun play with them and see what I could do. I am using them with acrylic paint so I have some tips on how to use paper masks to get beautiful block shapes and then lots of tips on how to use soft pastels. 

 

Let me know how you get on with them and scroll on down this post to see a some more of the texture of the pastels on the kraft paper I am using.

VIDEO: Bright Mixed Media Art

Bright mixed media art by Kim Dellow

 

I felt like do something super bright to cheer us all up! I have been a little under the weather recently and so something bright and bold was definitely called for! When you work for yourself and you aren’t able to to work at the same level that you are use to it is a little bit of a shock to the system and I have been slowly recovering and trying to get back up to my usual working speed. I am not quite there yet as you will hear in the video. My voice isn’t entirely back and so I have had to put most of this video to music. Hopefully the bright colors and bold shapes will make up for the quietness of my voice!

In the video I show you all of the layers and you can watch the piece build shape by shape. Some of you might recognise it as one of the the pages that I shared in my recent studio update video. If you do, then this is what happened to it!

VIDEO: How To Redo A Bad Art Journal Page

Painted art journal page by Kim Dellow with die-cut circle texture

 

I do not like where this page started today, it was a bad art journal page! I know that you can’t always get it right and you have to do lots of bad art to get the good art out of you. And this definitely started as a bad art journal page for me. That is why today’s art video takes you through how I redid this page. In fact I had to redo this page a couple of times! But you will see that too. So if you have a bad art journal page in your journal that you want to redo then this will help and hopefully give you some ideas on where to start.

But more importantly I’ve also got some tips on when you shouldn’t redo the art journal page, because not all of your bad art should be covered up! There are some really important reasons for keeping some of it as it is.

As always there is the supplies list below the video and a close-up photo of the final project at the bottom of this post.

I would love to hear your types on redoing art journal pages you don’t like so do leave me a comment. And if you want some more inspiration then I have a playlist of mixed media projects to get you creating!

Have fun turning your bad art journal page into some awesome new art!
