VIDEO: Easy Flower Painting Technique

Kim Dellow Easy flower painting video

Do you like getting your fingers covered in paint? Well if you do then I am sharing the perfect easy flower painting technique for your art journaling today in my video this week. Yep it is all finger painting this week. But never fear, if you don’t like getting your fingers dirty then you can always use gloves for this one!

Finger painting is so much fun and a great way to get really into your painting! This page was actually just an experiment for me. I wanted to try out the Winsor and Newton Designer Gouache properly and see if I could use a pen over the top of them. So I used this quick flower painting technique to run the materials through their paces! And it is fun as well of course!

Turn Your Art Into Patterns

Do you ever turn your work into pattern? It is something I have been playing with on and off for a while now. I think it is a fabulous way to extend the life of your artwork and create something new from the work you have already done. Do you remember the Art Journal page cushions I made way back in January 2016 with Snapfish? Well it is a similar thing but this time I’ve been playing with making repeat patterns using my art.

And I thought it would be fun to share some of the results of this pattern work and challenge you to have a go with your art too, if you aren’t already. Perfect timing as the weekend is upon us so what is stopping you?!

Close-up of Kim Dellow's Cheeseplant Leaf pattern


For my repeat pattern share today I’ve used the same large cheese plant leaf that I used in my 5 Minute Journal – Quick Cut Outs video from a couple of weeks ago using some of the DIY Patterned Papers I’ve been working with recently.

I added another leaf using the same papers as well as some cheese plant flower shapes too and scanned all the cut outs so that I could manipulate them into a digital repeat pattern using Photoshop Elements.

And I’m sure you already know that once you have your pattern you can always upload it to one of the print on demand outlets like Society6 or Spoonflower, (there are lots of others too) so even earn a little cash from your designs or get them made into your own bespoke soft furnishings if you like!

Here is my pattern first in it’s original colour then underneath that I’ve changed the colours to match the Pantone colour of the Year – Greenery – to see how it would look.

Which do you prefer?

Last weekend we went to the Josef Frank exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum in Bermondsey, London, which was pretty amazing and full of colour. I think this pattern is inspired by Josef Frank’s large floral motif designs.

I used the mock-up facility on Society6 to see how the pattern would look on products. It definitely gives it a new lease on life don’t you think?

So my challenge/ inspiration to get you creating this weekend/ week is to make a repeat pattern!

You do not have to make a digital pattern, you can do it by hand, low tech is perfectly fine! Then load it up to Instagram or facebook or wherever you like to hang out, to share and then tag me in. You can find me in most places under my name (Kim Dellow) or come back here and drop me a link because I would really love to see what you make!

Have fun!
Kim

VIDEO: Try This Easy Masking Technique In Your Art Journal!

As promised here is this week’s video inspiration and just in time to get you up and running for a creative weekend! This week I’m sharing one of my favourite techniques which is a really easy masking technique using paper masks. Paper masks are wonderful, they are so simple and you can use them for so many things. Today I am using them to make an abstract page in my junk art journal using acrylic paints and paint pens.

I’ve gone for an abstract page but you can easily use this technique for a whole range of styles and looks. I’ve kept my shapes loose and rough and didn’t over think what they should look like or where they should be placed. Sometimes it is just good to go with the flow isn’t it?

AS FEATURED ON: The PaperArtsy Blog – Little Door

Are you fascinated by doors? I am! Totally beguiled by them. What do you think it is that is so enticing about them? For me I think it is the idea of all the wonderful possibilities that may lie behind them. What about you? Is that the same for you?

Well if, like me, you are enchanted by doors then the challenge over on the PaperArtsy blog at the moment might be perfect for you as it is all about Windows, Doors and Architecture. Yesterday it was my turn to be on the blog so I made this interactive art journal page.

[There are some affiliate links in this blog post, so if you buy through them I do get a small amount of money at no extra cost to yourself. Thanks for your support!]

Little Door A grungy but cute interactive Art journal page by Kim Dellow

I went with a grungy look using DecoArt black modeling paste roughly through the Retro shapes stencil I designed for PaperArtsy PS040. I was going for a street look, rough and dirty with an odd little door that you might have just walked past without seeing. It looks out of place so almost magical.

So I didn’t need the whole stencil design in the background just touches of it to add texture to the background. I also added in lines to ground the door so that it wasn’t just free-floating and to give an idea of the larger architecture that the door might belong to.

Close up of the little door on the grungy but cute interactive Art journal page by Kim Dellow

The door is from the PaperArtsy HP1601 stamp set and is a lovely architectural feature, but have you spotted the interactive part of my project, yet?  Ok so it isn’t so secret! Yes, I’ve made the doors so that they open and there is something hidden behind them.

If you want to do this too, it is really simple. First you just add a little space so that you can put something behind the doors. To add this dimension I’ve first stamped the image on cardboard from an old box, trimmed it down into a frame that is smaller than the door image. I then stamped the door on paper painted brown and again on paper painted purple and cut out the frame and doors separately from those images but making sure that you have an overlap on the door part so that you can stick the overlap to the back of the frame.

I also made sure that the back of the doors had some colour too so that when they were open you still get that splash of colour on the inside of the doors. Then it is just a case of layering up the cardboard, doors and door frame and sticking the panel to the background.

The secret behind the door on the grungy but cute interactive Art journal page by Kim Dellow

For the little secret behind the door I made a flower using one of the circle flowers from the EKD06 set and a leaf from the EKD05 set that I designed for PaperArtsy and put them on a stem of wire coiled around a pen. Because they are on coiled wire they can easily ‘pop’ put when the door is open but you can push them back in to the gap made by the cardboard frame so that they are hidden again when the door is closed.

Voila, a cute, grungy, interactive project.

Hope it inspires you make your own window or door themed project and if you do don’t forget to go and link it up to the PaperArtsy challenge blog post to be in with a chance to win money to spend at PaperArtsy.

Art Journal Page: Stencil Rubbing

Art Journal Page using stencil rubbing by Kim Dellow

Did you have a nice and creative weekend? What did you get up to? Manage to throw some paint around, or get some stitching done, or perhaps you did some drawing? Drawing was my weekend creative fun but I’m actually going to start the week with an art journal share.

Did you happen to see my Art Slice video on Friday? If you did spot it on my YouTube Channel then you might recognise part of my share today?

On Friday I shared a super-simple but fun technique that is great to use with stencils, Stencil Rubbing. It is great to go revisit the simple techniques from time to time! So for this technique I used watersoluble pencils and crayons like the Caran D’Ache Neocolor II crayonsFaber-Castell Watercolour Pencils Albrecht Durer and Derwent Inktense Blocks and rubbed them over paper on top of the StencilGirl Loopy Ladders stencil. You get a lovely texture and then if you spray them with water they diffuse and mix for another great look.

Paper and stencil after stencil rubbing by Kim Dellow

My Art Slice video left it there but I didn’t leave it there! I then went on to use the stencil rubbing paper to make an art journal page. I cut out a large circle and used Golden Regular Gel to glue it to a Strathmore Mixed Media journal then I used a black Stabilo All pencil to add the dark and grey as I thought it would be a great counterpoint for the bright colour and texture of the stencil rubbing.

I used Fabriano Accademia Artist paper for the pencil rubbing so only gave a light spritz with water as it doesn’t like very wet washes but it has a great texture for pencils and crayons. And if you look at the second photograph below you can see the lovely texture.

So if you did some stencil rubbing over the weekend I hope that my share today has given you some more inspiration of what to do with them. If you are looking for some more quick inspiration then do go and subscribe to my YouTube channel, I am regularly posting ideas on there, so don’t miss out!

Have a fun and creative week and do share any of the projects you are planning to do this week, I would love to know.

VIDEO: DIY 3D Paper Birds

DIY 3D Paper Birds blog post and video by Kim Dellow

Do you ever take your art off the page and turn it 3D? It can be great fun and can literally add a new dimension to how you think about your work! If it isn’t something that you already do then can I suggest this project as a good starting point to get you off the page? It is super simple and very cute. It is all about making DIY 3D paper birds that can stand up and decorate your space.

This is a continuation of a series of blog posts and videos I have been doing all based around DIY Patterned Paper. It all started in February with my 5 Fun DIY Patterned Paper Techniques blog post where I shared some of my current favourite ways to decorate paper. Hop over to that blog post if you don’t remember it and share your current favourite techniques!

Close up of one DIY 3D Paper Bird by Kim Dellow

Then I shared a project made using those patterned paper in my DIY Patterned Paper Bird Journal Page blog post and there was a video of that project too.

Well this time around I have taken the same bird I showed you how to make for the art journal page and made it 3 dimensional and you can watch the whole process in the video below.

VIDEO: Timelapse Art Journal Page – Gelli Plate Collage

Gelli Plate collage journal page by Kim Dellow

I’ve a little treat for you today. I was working on some art journal pages for my blog post today, thinking that I would do another art journal page share like I did for last Friday’s blog post. But this time I decided to film the whole thing in case something came out of it. So instead of just sharing project pictures today with you today I have a little extra in the form of a timelapse video showing the whole process for this art journal share. I hope you enjoy it!

The page is built in my junk journal and I’ve used layers of paint with some Gelli plate prints using paints and stencils then used these printed papers to build up a focal point with layers. I didn’t have time to add a voice over so it is just set to music, but if there is anything you want to know just ask either below in the comments or over on my YouTube Channel!

New PaperArtsy Eclectica³ {Kim Dellow} Stamp And Stencil Release February 2017

Gelli print using with the new stencils and stamps by Kim Dellow

You guys know I am a bit circle obsessed and from what I’ve heard from you, a lot of you are too! Which is great news because my new designs for PaperArtsy. have lots of circles and circles flowers and I can not wait to see what you do with them.

Yes it is NEW PRODUCT release time. I have three new stamps sets and three new stencils as part of the PaperArtsy Eclectica³ {Kim Dellow} range. The new stamps do follow on from my earlier release last year but this year I thought I would change it up a little bit. I’ve been hankering after some mixed flowers and longing for a large flower, big is best right?! Plus I have some frames, a butterfly and what I am calling retro-electro heart.

I hope that you have lots of fun with them!

 

New PaperArtsy Eclectica³ {Kim Dellow} Stamp And Stencil Release February 2017

 

For the stencils I’ve continued with the floral theme for two of the stencils and there is one large flower stencil and a stencil with three smaller flowers and a leaf. But get this – you also get the mask for these stencils too as they come nested in the mylar sheet they have been cut from (don’t throw it away!), you just need to nip them out and you have a stencil and a mask, two for the price of one!

 

The third stencil is a more abstract cluster of retro-style circles and rectangles and very much designed with texture and pattern in mind. It’s going to be fun to see where we can go with these new designs!

 

Flower and leaves card using the new stamps from Kim Dellow

I love everything from clean and simple card making to mixed media messiness and art journaling so it is important to me that the products have multiple uses and can be applied to different types of projects.

But who better to showcase this than my two amazing release day wingmen Anneke De Clerke and Michelle Short?! Both of these talented artists have different have made some amazing samples for this launch of these new products. It is a real joy to see them bring these products to life! Here is a little teaser of their samples. They have more on their own blogs, just click the pictures below to go to their blogs and give them some love!

Michelle Short samples for the February 2017 PaperArtsy {Kim Dellow} Product release

 

 

I’ve also got some of my own samples to share with you this week starting with the making of this journal page using the large flower stencil PS046, the retro shapes stencil PS040, the small flower stencils PS048 and the line stamp from the EKD04 stamp set.

I’ve used PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints to make this page and the colours I’ve used are Blue Oyster, China, Limelight, Banana, Bubble Gum and Coral, scroll down further to see the video showing how the page from start to finish.

You can see from the film that there are so many ways to use the stencils, for example, I’ve used the whole retro shapes stencil to add texture to the collage pieces but then used it again, but only a part of it to add a bit of focal point detail and interest to the centre of the flower as you can see in this close up picture below.

I doodled in the little retro rectangles background but if you remember back to the EKD03 set there was a similar design in that set that you could use instead! So totally mix and match.

Three Art Journal Pages To Share

Happy Friday everyone! Have you got any creative projects planned for the weekend? I’ve got something new to share with you this weekend, so keep your eyes peeled. Try coming back on Sunday evening (GMT) to find out more!

But I can not share it yet so instead I’m sharing some recent art journal page projects and I hope they get you in the mood for your own creative plans this weekend!




[There are some affiliate links in this blog post, so if you buy through them I do get a small amount of money at no extra cost to yourself. Thanks for your support!]


Art journal page using inks, paints and pens Page 1, By Kim Dellow #KimDellow


I’ve got three pages from my flyer junk journals to share and I hope that you are in the mood for abstract because they are all a bit on the abstract side! I know I am a bit circle-obsessed at the moment, I am still trying to work the circles out of my system, but I think it will never happen!

This page is formed of DecoArt Media black gesso lines with paint pen and white acrylic paint highlights. The background colour is some Turner Acryl Gouache Colour Pearl Red, I think, as it has a bit of iridescent shine to it. It is leftover colour from another project and was put down a while ago now but the page just sang out for more work as I flicked through it!

For the next page I dripped the Liquitex Muted Turquoise and Muted Green inks onto a page that I had cleaned off blue paint from my brush in a previous project. Once the ink was dry I went around the drips with Liquitex white gesso slightly tinted with a purple watercolour paint.

It was totally happenstance rather than design that the gesso took on this tint as the purple paint was dried onto the palette that I used for the gesso. But it was definitely a happy happenstance and why you shouldn’t always clean up after yourself, well least that is my excuse!

I then further detailed the drips with the paint pen.

The final journal page share today is very much based on the circle shapes that have been plaguing my work recently! And you have probably seen them cropping up again and again in my daily draws and art slice videos over on Instagram, if you follow me there.

This page was built on a page I had used to clean off a stencil in a previous project and in fact I know exactly which project that was as it was my ‘How To Make An Art Journal Page With Shiva Artist’s Paintstiks’ project! So the background marks where made using DecoArt Black Modeling paste on The Crafter’s Workshop Sweet Posey stencil.

It then has a layer of Liquitex gesso and once that was dry I used a layer of Golden Regular Gel (Gloss) over the top. But then I did something that perhaps you would not expect – I used watercolour over the top. I love using watercolours over gel medium, the dried gel layer is not absorbent so the colour pools and resists in really interesting ways which is fun to play with! I used the Prima Marketing Decadent Pies as I love the dark/ paynes grey/ blue- like colour and the gold that are in this set.

This was then finished with the paint pen again and a totally circle-centric abstract design. You can see the gold watercolour catching the light on the picture below.

I hope your weekend is full of creative wonder. Oh and don’t forget to check back here on Sunday evening (GMT) for something new! Nudge, nudge, wink, wink, I will say no more. You will just have to come back and see, won’t you?

VIDEO: DIY Patterned Paper Bird Journal Page

DIY Patterned Paper Art journal page by Kim Dellow

How are you getting on with your DIY patterned papers? Had a chance to make any yet? Well, okay it was only Monday that I posted my current 5 favourite fun DIY patterned paper techniques, you probably haven’t had a chance to make any yet have you? Don’t worry if you haven’t as I just have some extra inspiration to share today on the same subject. It’s a process video showing the making of this journal page using the very same patterned papers that I showed on Monday.

I don’t know why but I have had this bird design journal page idea just floating around in my head for a while now. You know when you just keep coming back to an idea or an image and you need to get it out of your head and into real life? Well this is definitely one of those!

I have a feeling that this bird is not out of my system yet! So what techniques will you be using to make your patterned papers? And then what will you make with them when you have them?
