VIDEO: Flowers And Graphite Junk Journal Page

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!

VIDEO: Acrylic Paint, Watercolour And Ink Art

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!…

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

  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.

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…

  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…
