VIDEO: Flowers And Graphite Junk Journal Page

Junk journal page by Kim Dellow with flowers

Sometimes your junk journal page doesn’t turn out the way you thought it would does it? I mean it is not like I had a plan for this junk journal page that I am sharing today, but I didn’t think it would go the way that it did!

Just as with last week’s DIY art journal pages, I have also added in some graphite later on in the art process and have a few different techniques for you to try out on your next junk journal page. I am still just experimenting to see what looks I can get with graphite in mixed media. So I hope you enjoy watching the very up and down process of this junk journal today!

VIDEO: Acrylic Paint, Watercolour And Ink Art

Acrylic Paint, Watercolour And Ink feather by Kim Dellow

I thought that I would work on one of the backgrounds I have been making recently. So this piece starts on an acrylic paint background and I layer it with a whole host of different materials.

Acrylic ink, brush pens, ball point pens and watercolour paint all go into the layers on this piece today. But even though it uses a lot of materials, it did not take a lot of time to do. Well, I suppose it helped having the background already made and ready to work on! It is a great art cheat tip!

VIDEO: Easy Painted Doodle Inspiration

A page of painted doodle inspiration by Kim Dellow

 

Hey all, it is a new video day and this week I have a painted doodle, collage page in my junk journal for some inspiration for you. I am just loving layering doodles and paint marks at the moment and each time I do it they seem to get more complex. I am challenging myself to see how many layers I can get into one piece! I hope you enjoy watching how this painted doodle page develops from start to finish in this process video. Don’t forget to check below the video for a close-up picture of the finished projects and some links to more videos to watch!

VIDEO: How To Use Your Brush To Add Texture

Purple and red painted traveller's journal page by Kim Dellow

 

One of the things that I have been playing around with and experimenting with a lot recently is simple ways to add texture with a brush to my mixed media and acrylic painting projects. It is like brush mark making 101 but it is super fun and well worth trying if you are a newbie or revisiting if you are more experienced in your art. So today I am sharing a mixed media page process video with some tips and ideas on brush textures and mark making to get you in the mood to start experimenting with brush strokes yourself.

As usual I have the products I have used below the video and then a close-up picture of the page below that, so just scroll on down to see. I am in a Traveller’s notebook today, it isn’t even acrylic paper or heavy weight but it seemed to stand up to several paint layers and other medium over the top too!

VIDEO: How to Stop Perfectionism Getting In The Way Of Your Art

A simple acrylic doodle by Kim Dellow, with a video chat about being perfectionism

 

We can put a lot of obstacles in our own way can’t we?! And one of the ones I struggle with is perfectionism. I am a perfectionist. But when it comes to my art I have learnt how to get past it and not let it hold me back from doing art. Part of what has helped me is learning to let go and I have trained myself to do this through doing more art. But it is a particular kind of art as it is no pressure art. You need to learn to give yourself permission to mess up and do it regularly and over and over!

Now I am not saying that it is easy, I would not be that glib, but if you do try out some of the tips in this video and find them helpful then I will be so happy that me sharing what I have learnt about my perfectionism has helped you too!

If perfectionism isn’t a problem for you but you know someone who does suffer from it, then please do share this video with them!

VIDEO: Painting On Fabric – A Mixed Media Rose

VIDEO: Painting On Fabric - A Mixed Media Rose

 

When was the last time that you were painting on fabric? I think for me it must have been a while ago. The closest was when I made that How To Emboss on Fabric video and then I used stamps so no painting on fabric was involved! But I did have this piece of denim left over after that session and I had already treated it with some gel medium through a stencil. So last week I decided that it needed to be painted on and here is how I did it!

If you want to see how that first gel medium layer catches the light then scroll on down to the photo!

VIDEO: Turning Waking Art Into Real Art – Mixed Media Abstract Art

 

Have you ever woken up with a picture in your head of a project you really need to do? Well, this happened to me yesterday. I woke with a really clear image in my head, this waking art just popped into my head as I became aware of the new day and started to open my eyes. But it wasn’t just an image it was a feeling too, you know when you wake up and the images and feelings are all merged together as one? I couldn’t hold onto the feelings, they soon vanished back into the dream world, but the image was still there and I tried to turn it into something real and you can watch me do that in my video today.

It is a very mixed media piece with gouache and watercolor paint, acrylic ink and collage. So go grab a tea or coffee and watch my waking art turn into real art!

VIDEO: Mixed Media Collage Painting – Project 2 From My Burnout Series

 

More burnout art today and a mixed media collage piece. Yep, I am owning it and calling it burnout work! If you aren’t sure what I am going on about then visit last Wednesday’s post and watch that video first, it will be a little clearer. It is not so drastic as it sounds, don’t worry, but I have been suffering from a bit of burnout and decided that an easy come – easy go art session, which didn’t have to result in anything, would help. I mean I did film the session but I wasn’t forcing myself to make anything ‘show-able’, it just so happens that a few projects did come out of it. And here is the second of those projects. I showed the first on Wednesday, another mixed media collage piece, which as it happens also had a butterfly too – I mean theme, much?!

I might show the other pieces over on instagram rather than as videos as they were super short, so keep your eye out for them. You will spot them as they are all the same color scheme. In the meantime, the colors I have used are all listed below and there is a close-up piccy too! But you knew that didn’t you?!

VIDEO: Answering Questions And Mixed Media Speed Art

 

I enjoy hearing about how people work and their creative process so when I recently got some questions about my process and how to cope with overthinking, a subject close to my heart as you know, I thought I would share my answers via this video. I also talk a little bit about burnout as I am just trying to work through a burnout at the moment.

Hopefully, you also enjoy hearing about other people’s creative processes and perhaps it will help you too with some of the tips I share or just by knowing that you aren’t the only one trying to work these things out!

Whilst I chat and answer the questions I’ve got a quick mixed media project to share as well, so I hope that you enjoy watching that too, and that it kicks off some ideas for your next project!
