VIDEO: Easy Mixed Media Art Tutorial – Keys

Layered mixed media art project by Kim Dellow

 

It is my last video for 2018 and I thought it would be fun if we did some easy mixed media art together, what do you think? Everything you need for this project is listed under the video below, and remember you don’t have to use exactly what I have used, grab what you have in your stash. I go layer by layer through this project and give you techniques and ideas on what to do for each step and the great thing is that you can pause the video whenever you need to!

Feel free to use your favourite colors, products and marks to put your own unique spin on the project. I have used keys as my focal images and if you wanted to too then pop over to Patreon where you can download a reference photo for your own personal use (even if you aren’t one of my Patreons). But feel free to use whatever imagery you like and I give you some more ideas in the video too!

Once you have finished your project post it up on Instagram and tag me @kimdellow and use the hashtag #layerwithkimdellow so that I can come on over and take a look!

 

Support my work on Patreon and get behind the scenes, chats and exclusive videos! (Not sure what Patreon is then watch this short video explainer!)

VIDEO: Easy Expressive Flower Drawing Exercise Using Watersoluble Crayons

 

I really love using crayons to draw with, they can be so expressive can’t they? I’m sharing a great flower drawing exercise in my Wednesday art video this week, using watersoluble crayons. This easy flower drawing exercise if great for beginners and experts alike. If you are a beginner it will help you build confidence with your expressive drawing. For the more advanced try it as a quick warm up exercise before a longer art session!

Don’t worry if you don’t have watersoluble crayons, you don’t have to use them as I say in the video. You can also swap out crayons for pencils and I give you a tip on how to use your pencils in an expressive manner in the video. Scroll down for all the products I have used, it’s a really small list today! And there is a close up of the finished piece under the video too!

VIDEO: Art Journal - Easy Stenciling With A Kitchen Sponge

 

You guys know that I love a bit of easy stenciling don’t you? I mean give me a piece of paper and a pair of scissors and I’ll give you a stencil and mask to play with! It’s so lo-tech but I’ve gone even lower tech today because I have re-purposed a kitchen sponge – don’t worry it won’t be going back into the kitchen after I’ve been using it! – to make a fun and effective easy stenciling art journal page. I mean there really is no excuse for not having a go at this project!

I’ve gone for lots of texture so watch how I build it up and don’t forget to scroll down for the list of paints I’ve used and a close-up of that texture too. I’m looking forward to seeing all your kitchen sponge-stippled projects!

Oh and by the way, John Bloodworth, aka Gentleman Crafter has interviewed me for his Worldwide Wednesday series on his blog if you are interested in reading more about me! He also has a YouTube channel so do pop over and say hi to him and subscribe to his channel too!

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.

VIDEO: Pencil Coloring Tutorial Using Prismacolor and Polychromos

Pencil Coloring Tutorial, showing the coloring of a cute girl stamp

I’m doing some pencil coloring in my video today. You might recognise the image as I used her for an art journal page video a couple of weeks ago but I never showed you how I colored her. So I thought I would rectify that and go through my pencil coloring process for you. I’ve used both Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils for this image, but let me know what pencils you are using for your coloring at the moment.

If you want the full list of the colors I have used then scroll down and you will also see a close-up of her face too!

VIDEO: DIY Stamp Carving Start To Finish Process

DIY Stamp Carving Start To Finish Process with a video by Kim Dellow

 

If you dropped past my blog at the end of November then you probably spotted my Favorite DIY Stamp Carving materials blog post? I shared some of my favorite products for carving your own stamps plus a quick simple how-to carve and an alternative idea for if you don’t own any of the products that I suggested! Yes, that’s right, it was the carrot carving video! Have you tried it yet?

Well, I am back today with a full stamp carving process video sharing how to carve a more intricate design from start to finish. I have lots of tips to share plus a bonus tip at the end of the video just for those of you that make it all the way through *wink!

I will be linking this project up to Julie Fei-Fan Balzer’s CarveDecember challenge over on my Instagram feed. I hope you have been doing the same with yours? Hopefully, I will get to do some more because I do need the practice! Enjoy the video and don’t forget that all the products I used are listed below it.

VIDEO: Watercolor Abstract Painting – Start To Finish Process

Watercolor Abstract Painting - Start To Finish Process Video by Kim Dellow

 

Video time and I thought that I would share a watercolor abstract painting process with you today showing some of the work I have been doing behind the scenes recently. This is the first time that I’ve shared this work but you have probably seen some of my designs for it if you have been following me on Instagram. It is a speed paint video and I show all the steps that I take, from start to finish, to make a super textured and colourful watercolor abstract art.

Well, in fact I have two for you to watch as I am working side by side on two pieces, one using smooth hot press watercolor paper and the other the rougher cold press paper, and I’ve listed which papers they are below the video, where you will also see a of close-up photograph of each abstract painting too, so just scroll down to see them.

VIDEO: Gelli Prints Project #4: Digital Gelli Prints and Hybrid Art Journal Page

Digital Gelli Prints and Hybrid Art Journal Page with a film by Kim Dellow

I’m guessing that you are like me and like to make the most out of the art that you make don’t you? I mean there is just so much you can do with it and I’ve shared ideas before like the blog post about turning your art journal pages into soft furnishings for your home or the one about making personalised stocking filler gifts (perfect for this time of year *wink *wink!). Well, as part of my Gelli Prints Project series I thought I would stretch the use of my monoprints and do a hybrid art journal page.

So today we are going partly digital and using some of my digital stamps from my Etsy shop with some digitalised gelli print papers as the focal point to a painted art journal page. So I have tips on how to scan your monoprints, how to add digital stamps to them in Photoshop Elements and also how to make a quick textured background with heavy body acrylic paint.

So a lot of subjects covered in my video today! Scroll down to find all the supplies plus a close-up of the finished art journal page.

Gelli Prints Project #3: DIY Envelopes, with a video by Kim Dellow

I’ve got another idea for using up your Gelli prints plus a super simple monoprinting technique AND a free template too! All in today’s video! I know! You didn’t expect that when you sat down to catch up with your blogs this morning did you?

So I have a little bit of a small envelope addiction, I think it might just be part of my whole issue with stationery. The issue being that I just can’t get enough of it! Nope, there is no shortage of pens in this house, although can I find the one pen I want to use at any one time? ERr No! But that is another issue entirely. Today, let’s focus on envelopes and monoprinting! (It has been a long week, can you tell?!).

I made these little envelopes, they are just slightly bigger than a gift card size, or small secret note size, and perfect for all sorts of projects and I have a few suggestions for you in my video. You will also find out how to get hold of the template to if you watch to the end!

VIDEO: Gelli Prints Project #1: Transform A Sketch

Gelli Prints Project #1: Transform A Sketch, a video by Kim Dellow

As promised I am back with a project idea for using the Gelli prints I made in my last video. I thought it would be fun to use them to turn one of my Inktober sketches into a mixed media project. So I’m sharing my process for transforming this ink sketch into a mixed media collage.

I’ve got a bit of a fixation on these little houses on hill scenes that I’ve been drawing recently, so it was fun to use it as the inspiration for this project and to see what else I could do with it. And I hope that it inspires you to take one of your recent sketches and see what you can turn it into!

Enjoy the video and as always the supply list is below. If you missed the video on how I made the gelli prints then scroll down to my last blog post or swing on by YouTube channel to watch my Quick Gelli Plate Printed Papers video.

——— GELLI PRINTS PROJECT SERIES ———

Start here with tips on gelli printing.

Project #2 was all about using gelli prints to make botanical art.

Project #3 use your gelli prints to make cute envelopes with colour on the inside and outside. PLUS there is a free template too!

Project #4 scan your gelli prints and use them to add printed elements in a hybrid art journal page.

Project #5 use your gelli prints to make a cute coordinated present wrap gift set (perfect for Christmas btw!).

Haven’t got a gelli plate? Don’t worry, make your own with this handy blog post on Gelatin plates.

 

But the question is, what should I now do with this little scene now? I could turn it into a greeting card, or perhaps it would make a good art journal element, or maybe I should leave it as a stand alone piece? What do you think I should do with it? I would love to know so leave a comment below!

VIDEO: Ink Pad Art: Make The Most Of Your Ink Pads

Make the most of your ink pads, video tutorial from Kim Dellow

I hope that you are ready to get inky today? Because I thought I would share another idea for getting the most out of your ink pads. Ink pads are a stampers ‘must have’ product but they are quite a versatile art material in their own right. A while back I shared a video showing How to Draw with Ink Pads, it is super fun to do and a perfect project to loosen you up and get you in the creative flow.

Today’s project concentrates on making art with ink pads again, but this time I have some easy masking and stencil techniques to share. Plus I have some tips on how to get a great image using printing with your stamps rather than stamping. You will see what I mean in the video!
