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.

And if you would like another video on using acrylic paint like watercolor, try my video where I used the technique with stencils.

 

So let me know if you have any title suggestions for this project today!

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).

VIDEO: Art Journal Page Process – Simple Acrylic Paint Layers

VIDEO: Art Journal Page Process - Simple Acrylic Paint Layers

Ok, I’ll own up! I have been on a spending spree! I have some Amsterdam acrylic paints to try out this week and following on from last Sunday, when I was putting the Pebeo Irridescent paints through their paces, it is starting to look like I might have gone a bit acrylic paint-crazeeee! Mmm? Perhaps I have?!

But I wanted to branch out a little and try some of the student-grade and craft-grade paints. For one thing they are cheaper than the artist-grade paints that I use a lot of and let’s face it they just seem to be getting better and better don’t they? So I have to say I am super-impressed with the Amsterdam Standard range so far. I’ve been using them for the last couple of weeks or so and you will have spotted them in my Instagram Stories and even in my recent dragonfly art journal page video. I think I will be using these a lot.

So today is an art journal page process video using this lovely stamp from Trish Latimer’s Wordgirl collection and I’m sharing some really simple tips for building up and adding texture with acrylic paint layers. Don’t forget to scroll down for a close-up of the page and links to the videos that I mention in this video.

If you missed it catch up with my 12 Tips For Starting an Art Journal Page using Acrylic Paint video for some more inspiration for using palate knifes and acrylic paint.

I have two stamp carving videos, the first one goes through my favorite stamp carving products to use plus an idea for if you don’t want to buy products but you do want to have a go at the technique! The second video goes through a stamp curve project from start to finish.

Then if you are looking for some pencil colouring tips try my Prismacolor pencils coloring video.

I’m starting to get quite a back catalogue of videos! I hope they are helpful to you.

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!

Art Journal Process - Swirl And Flourish with a video by Kim Dellow

My share today is an art journal page process video and as promised it is another continuing story for a page that I started in the 12 Tips For Starting Art Journal Pages Using Acrylic Paint video. Don’t forget to watch that first, if you missed it, so that you can see how this page began!  There is a lot of painted texture on this starter page so I have done my best to make good use of it and picked techniques and colors to enhance it. But you can see all the steps in the video!

Oh and you might also spot that I made good use of the paper that I tested out that DIY carrot roller stamp on from the My Favourite DIY Stamp Carving Materials video! I’ve put a close up of the two parts of this project below the video and of course you will find the product list below the video too.

12 Tips For Starting Art Journal Pages Using Acrylic Paint with a video by Kim Dellow

 

Do you have those days when you just can’t get a page started? Perhaps you are wanting to create but you just don’t know what and the indecision is leading to procrastination and no art journal pages? Oh I know that one well! Or maybe you just need a quick way to start some art journal pages but you are not sure what. Well, I am here to help as today I have 12 tips for starting your art journal pages in a expressive and fearless way to cut down on indecision and procrastination and to get you making art!

So these are perfect for warm up exercises when you have a long session ahead or for getting art done in those few minutes you can spare today. You can adapt them for both and each page you make is a fab starter for building on, because that is what we are doing here, getting pages started that you can then work on later or build to something amazing right away.

As always I have all the products listed below the video, and there aren’t many this time as you don’t need much for these exercises. Plus there are some close up pictures of some of the pages I made to demonstrate the tips, so take a look at them too for some lovely paint details!
