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: 15 Ways With Ecoline Watercolor Brush Pens

drawn fish and Ecoline Watercolor Brush Pens

 

Watercolor brush pens are a great way to add color to an art journal page and I thought I would have a bit of fun today and use my Ecoline watercolor brush pens to make a whole art journal page. So watch me make this page and count the 15 ways that I used the Ecoline watercolor brush pens with me!

It is a double page in my junk journal and you can see from the supplies list below that I really have only used these watercolor brushes! But don’t worry if you don’t have them because you can try these techniques with the other watercolor brush pens that you have in your stash! You can also see the whole finished project if you scroll on down this post!

VIDEO: Easy Layering Acrylic Paint Techniques For Mixed Media Art

 

My Sunday art video this week is only short but it is packed with techniques! I’m sharing lots of easy layering techniques for using with your acrylic paints and I know, the project looks way too simple to have lots of different techniques doesn’t it? Well you know me, I love a bit of simple designing, I do lean towards clean and simple design again and again, I mean mixed media doesn’t have to be complex now does it? And simple doesn’t have to mean not full of ideas and techniques!

So I hope you catch all the easy layering techniques I share, don’t blink otherwise you might miss them! And if you are looking for the butterflies that I used on this project then go join my Patreon page to grab them and my tutorials and more art sharing too! You can join for as little as $1 ($1+EU tax if you are in the EU) and cancel or change your pledge as you need, did you know that?

There is a close-up piccy of the butterflies below and the supplies list too!

VIDEO: Mixed Media Art Journal – Make A Shaped Page

 

I was flicking through my junk journal looking for a page to work on when a little left-over page caught my eye. So today I have the making of a shaped page to share with you from start to finish. It is always fun to change things up a but isn’t it? The picture above shows the front part of the project with the shaped page closed, scroll on down for all the products I used and to see the inside of the project too. You will also get a better look at the shaped page itself in the photo below.

My working title for this project is ‘windows and doors’ as it has been inspired by architecture but I am wondering if I should actual call it ‘Dolls House’.

VIDEO: Mixed Media Art Journal Process – Gouache and Acrylic Paint Layers

 

 

This is a page of gouache and acrylic paint layers and it has been sat in my junk journal for months! Well, actually, it has been sat in my junk journal half finished for months, if I want to be accurate about it! This gouache and acrylic paint layers page started life as just a gouache paint experiment on gesso until I spotted it again this week and decided to finish it with some acrylic paint. But you can watch the whole gouache and acrylic paint layer process and listen to it’s painty story in my video today!

If you follow me over on instagram or have watched my DIY Stamp Carving Process video then you might recognise this design, if not then hop on over and check either of them out and say ‘hi’ whilst you are there!

As usual I have a list of the products I used for this gouache and acrylic paint page below the video and a close-up picture of the design is there too!

VIDEO: Easy Layered Acrylic Paint Abstract Art Journal Page

 

I have an easy art journal page for you today using different layered acrylic paint techniques. It is one of my ‘scrappy’ pages that I have been working on recently! Well I am kind of calling them ‘scrappy’ because they start from leftovers on the page and then they end up a little scrappy too, but hopefully not in a bad way! I quite like the textures all the layered acrylic paint gives to this piece. I also really like how the dry brushed paint picks up the stencil layer. I wasn’t expecting that as I didn’t think there would be enough physical texture there.

So have fun with your layered acrylic paint work today! And don’t forget all the products I have used in my layered acrylic paint piece are below the video, as well as the link to the ‘scrappy’ doodle page I was talking about in the video.

VIDEO: Easy Doodle Exercise For Your Mixed Media Art Journals

 

Do you fancy a quick doodle? I hope you do as I have an easy doodle exercise that I thought we could do together, so grab a colorful page and some pens and lets play! It’s a great creative exercise for warming up or for practising your art motifs and also for letting go and getting use to just mark making. Today’s exercise is also about contrasts and using them to great effect in your art so look out for all the contrasts that you can make and use on your page.

As always there is a list of the products that I have used under the video and a close-up of the page. And if you need some more help with what to doodle perhaps my video about art motifs might help! But above all just have fun with it and I can’t wait to see what you come up with, all my social media links are below so do link me in on any of your easy doodle exercise project shares!

VIDEO: Easy Gelatos Technique For Adding Color And Texture

 

I thought we could all do with some color! So in my Wednesday art video this week I am adding lots of color and texture using a really easy Gelatos technique. I mean, to be honest, you can try this technique with any of your colouring products, but I thought I would go full rainbow with my Gelatos and just share another way that you can use yours to add layers of interest to a piece. We often grab for lots of different products to build interesting layers in our mixed media, art journals and even card making don’t we? Sometimes you just don’t need to and just a few choice products will be fine and you can still build layers of interest.

So have fun trying this easy Gelatos technique out and let me know how you get on! There is a close-up photo of the page at the bottom of this post, so do scroll down to see it!

VIDEO: Mixed Media Art Journaling – Leftover Paint

 

I’m art journaling again today and sharing some news in my video too! This page is made up of leftover paint, so if you are looking for some ideas for using up your leftover paint and how to get those leftover paint art journaling pages finished then try this one! And whilst you watch this art journaling video have a think what you might call this page. I would love to hear what name you would suggest.

If you want a close up of the flowers I have drawn then scroll down to the bottom of this post as I have a picture of one of them below.
