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: How To Do The Watermark Resist Technique With Acrylic Paint or Ink

 

So you know how I like resist techniques right? I have been doing a few in different videos on my channel and I have another one for you today. This is the watermark resist using an embossing or watermark ink. You have probably seen the technique being done incoordination with other inks and watercolours right? Well I’m using an acrylics with my watermark resist today and showing you how you can get the look too.

This is a fun, magical technique which works well for art journaling, mixed media projects, card making alike so I hope that you have fun with it. I’m going to do mine as a basis of a floral illustration so watch that develop too in my video! The close up of the project and supplies are all below the video.

VIDEO: My Inktober Doodles Part 2 Sketchbook Tour

some pages from Kim Dellow's Inktober Doodles Sketchbook

 

Welcome to the my second Inktober doodles sketchbook tour! I’ve started where we left off last time in the first part of my 2018 Inktober doodles sketchbook tour video. So we start on Day 11 for this one, oh and the first part came with a pep talk too if you missed it! I hope you managed to keep up with this challenge, of with whatever challenge you have been taking part in. It is not easy is it?!

But I do think it is worth it. I was happy that I got to the end and managed to post one of my Inktober doodles everyday on Instagram and I hope to keep the daily Instagram posting momentum going even now that Inktober is over. Really that was the main goal for me, as well as just giving myself permission to experiment with my doodle patterns and mark making.

Scroll on down to see the video and to see what supplies I used for my Inktober doodles.

VIDEO: Inktober – How To Keep Going

Day 11 ink circles doodle in yellow, red and orange for Inktober, by Kim Dellow

 

So I wasn’t going to join in with Inktober this year. I didn’t think I would be able to fit it in. But I changed my mind at the very last minute, I mean literally on the day it started, October 1st! And now we are almost, not quite, but pretty close to halfway through the month. So how are you getting on with it? Are you keeping up? If you are struggling or maybe haven’t started yet then I can help!

In my video today I am sharing how I am keeping up with the daily drawing and posting over on Instagram. Hopefully it will help you too. But it is not just for Inktober, you can take on these tips for any of the art challenges and habits you want to form. So today’s video is a mix of some art, a pep talk, some tips and hacks and a sketchbook tour! The lot!

If you are looking for more on Inktober and the prompt’s you can find them on Jake Parker’s Inktober website.

VIDEO: When Doodles Go Wrong Art Journal Page!

bright art journal page of pink, yellow and turquoise and lots of doodles by Kim Dellow

 

What do you do when doodles go wrong? I had one of those recently. I doodled away thinking all would be fine, I mean I was doodling with one of the best paint pen colors in the world! What could go wrong? Well a dodgy doodle, that is what could go wrong! Oh and you can see more of that paint pen in my recent paint pen video btw. You know the one where I doodle even more? At least in that video the doodles didn’t go wrong! But this week? Yuck!

 

But it is ok, I think I saved it! Decide for yourself by watching the video and checking out the picture below. It’s all a bit random this week but I hope you enjoy it anyway. All the supplies and the colors I have used are below as well.

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: 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: Sketchbook Tour and mini vlog – Inktober 2017

A Sketchbook tour for my inktober 2017 projects, video by Kim Dellow

Did you enjoy Inktober? Perhaps you joined in over on instagram or just enjoyed watching the art that was being produced by your favourite artist day after day through October? As many of you know I joined in too, in my small way, with this worldwide challenge started by Jake Parker and shared a daily ink sketch over on instagram. I wasn’t sure if I was going to manage to keep going the whole month because, well it is hard isn’t it?

So it was a surprise to me to get to the end of October without missing a day and well, yes it wasn’t like I was sharing some of the more complex inking that many of the amazing artist do but I was still pleased with what I accomplished. So today, as requested by you guys, I have a tour video of my Inktober 2017 sketchbook with all the good days and bad days and the scribbles in between!

Scroll down for everything I used over the month and for my Inktober 2017 learning points too!

Some of my learning points from Inktober? 

  • Well I definitely see some styles in my work coming through that I return to again and again.
  •  Keeping going and posting is better than aiming for perfection, but this is a hard balance as you still have to remember that it represents you and maybe the only thing people see of your work before deciding if they want to see more or move on. 
  • What I think will be popular on Instagram is totally different to what actually is popular on Instagram ?

If you have any learning points from Inktober, as a participant or a watcher, then please do share in the comments below!
