VIDEO: EASY Watercolour Backgrounds Made With Acrylic Paint To Try

5 watercolour backgrounds made with acrylic paint by Kim Dellow

I have some fun backgrounds in my art video today for you to try in your next art session. They look like watercolor backgrounds but they are all done with acrylic paints.

But why do them with acrylic paint instead of watercolors? Well, you can of course do them with your watercolors but if you like to layer your pieces, like I do, then starting with acrylic paint backgrounds can be really useful can’t it? Because you can layer up over the top and not worry about the layer underneath reactivating and mixing with the new layer.

And you can make a whole batch of these backgrounds and not have to worry about remembering what you used to make them with! Because they are compatible with lots of materials that you might want to use on them.

Very handy backgrounds!

VIDEO: How To Make Small Scale Abstract Art For Cards – Part 3

Purple, blue and pink paint and doodle abstract art card made by Kim Dellow

 

It is here! My final project in my Small Scale Abstract Art series and this is a project that I have been calling either ‘purple’ or ‘swirl’ depending on what mood I am in! If you have missed the other two projects in this series then don’t forget to also watch the floral video and the ballpoint pen circles video to see how I did them all. But you can also see the projects all side by side at the end of this video today.

So you might remember that I mentioned that I was approaching my 10k subscriber milestone on YouTube in a recent video? And HUGE thank you everyone who has subscribed to my channel! Now that I am almost there will you help me pick a video to make to mark the occasion? I’ve got a poll running on YouTube or over on Patreon, so go check out the options and pick which one you would most like to see!

VIDEO: More Small Scale Art For Cards – Part 2 – Paint A Flower

Watch Kim Dellow paint a flower using teal acrylic paint

It is the second part of my mini series making mini, or small scale art! And this week, I admit it is a little less abstract as I draw and paint a flower to make a small scale floral card. If you want to see the first in the series then pop back to last week’s post. Art series or working on a body of work that has a common theme is very much on my mind at the moment as I think it might be what I do more of this year. But I will tell you more in the video!

In the meantime you might want to take a closer look at the flower I painted for this small scale floral card and there is a close up picture at the bottom of this post. This is the third version of this flower. The first two versions where something that I did for my Patreons. It turned up first in the December Process addicts video and I liked it so much that I turned it into a digital art piece for all my Patreons to download as a thank you. Now it has turned up on this card! But I will tell you a bit more about that too in the video!

VIDEO: How To Make Small Scale Abstract Art For Cards – Part 1

A mini paint and pen abstract card project by Kim Dellow

 

Happy New Year! I hope you had a really lovely festive season and are ready for some New Year Inspiration as I have some small scale art inspiration for you today that is just perfect for making into cards. I think I am also in a bit of a looking back mood too, as you will hear in the video!

 

If you are one of my long term blog readers then you know that I started as a card maker. Can you believe that it is around 10 years or so that I started on that route? I can’t! And now, 10 years later, I am throwing paint around and sharing the results with you all! I know! It is funny where life leads you isn’t it?

So my video today is one abstract inspiration but I actually made three cards in this session and I am sure I will be sharing the rest later on my channel and elsewhere too!

Meanwhile, don’t forget that I have plenty of other creative inspiration on my channel for you! And I also have the abstract art card making video that I mention in today’s video on my channel in case you missed it!

And have you seen the card making video where I used gel printing to make the card?

 

Have fun with your small scale abstracts today and I am looking forward to some more painty sharings with you in 2019!

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!

And it just goes to prove that you don’t always have to do something complex to achieve a stunning mixed media art journal page. So I hope it inspires to you go bold and beautiful in your next colorful art journal session! And you don’t have to do this exact same page, I can already think of loads of variations on this theme that you can do to add your own colorful art journal spin using these techniques.

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: What To Do With Leftover Paper Masks

a bright page made with Leftover Paper Masks by Kim Dellow

 

Get your sunglasses out! This is a little on the bright side! I’ve gone fluorescent for a change and I’ve used up those paper masks from last week’s Sunday art video. Now I wanted to do something different with this page so going bright against those paper masks seemed like a great way to change it all up! But fluorescent colors are so hard to capture in a photo, the project is even brighter in real life than I can get with these photos! Just turn up the saturation to get the idea!

Have fun playing with color and if you want to see a close-up of this page or find the supplies I have used, including the pencil, which is great for expressive drawing, then scroll on down!

VIDEO: Art Journal Inspiration – Two Pages For The Price Of One!

VIDEO: Art Journal Inspiration - Two Pages For The Price Of One!

 

I have got two art journal inspiration pages for the price of one for you today! And I thought that for these two projects I would play with the images that I made for my Patrons over on Patreon. I’ve used lots of acrylic paint techniques to build these art journal pages and as I did them both at the same time you can can watch them grow together in the video! Have fun trying the techniques out in your next project. I hope that this art journal inspiration gives you lots of creative ideas to get you creating! And if you haven’t got these digital stamps yet, you can grab them over on my Patreon page, they are available for all the tiers even at the $1 level! So pop on over and take a look!

All the other things that I have used in these projects are listed below and there are close-up photos of both projects further down the blog post!

VIDEO: Easy Mixed Media Masks Revisited

 

It is time to get your spare pieces of paper out because today we are going to make some masks! I’ve got an art journal page to share and this one was started way back in March. If you saw my iridescent acrylic paint leaves video then you would have seen how this page started. I am continuing the page today, picking up from where I left off in that March video and finishing this page with a colorful abstract. And my favorite mask technique totally helped me get the page finished!

I have to admit that I wasn’t sure where this page was going to go, but I will let you watch the video to find out more! All the supplies are listed below and there is a close-up of the finished piece below too.

For more art tutorials, process shares, techniques, behind the scenes and product insights come and join my Patreon family!
