Cardmaking

VIDEO: How To Make Gel Printed Greeting Cards With A Difference – Card 1

A greeting card made with gel printing by Kim Dellow

 

I decided to get my gel plate out to make some gel printed greeting cards. But these are gel printed greeting cards with a difference! So if you are looking for something unique that adds that little extra special experience for the recipient of the card then have a go at some double sided printing! I know, right?! There is all that lovely space on a card we should use it!

Well, I show you how this week and I have three cards in total to share with you, but as the footage added up to 2 hours worth I decided to split the video into three! So this is part one today and then the next two gel printed greeting card inspiration will follow over the next couple of weeks, so don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel if you aren’t already and click the notification bell so you don’t miss when they go live. Each card turned out quite different so you are going to want to see them all!

VIDEO: How to Stop Perfectionism Getting In The Way Of Your Art

A simple acrylic doodle by Kim Dellow, with a video chat about being perfectionism

 

We can put a lot of obstacles in our own way can’t we?! And one of the ones I struggle with is perfectionism. I am a perfectionist. But when it comes to my art I have learnt how to get past it and not let it hold me back from doing art. Part of what has helped me is learning to let go and I have trained myself to do this through doing more art. But it is a particular kind of art as it is no pressure art. You need to learn to give yourself permission to mess up and do it regularly and over and over!

Now I am not saying that it is easy, I would not be that glib, but if you do try out some of the tips in this video and find them helpful then I will be so happy that me sharing what I have learnt about my perfectionism has helped you too!

If perfectionism isn’t a problem for you but you know someone who does suffer from it, then please do share this video with them!

VIDEO: I’m Making Some Changes On My Channel

Mixed Media Face Art Speed Draw

 

So change is good right? Of course it is! So yes, I will be making some changes to my YouTube channel in August and possibly longer, I am not really sure how it will turn out but if you want to know more about the changes, and why I am making them, then watch the video. I spill all of the beans whilst I make some face art. That just makes it sound like I am making faces at you in the video! No, I’m not! But I am making an abstract background with acrylic paint then drawing the face that appeared in the background. Because, oddly one did appear from this background for me, see if you can spot her too before I draw her in!

As always the products are listed below and there is a close-up of all that lovely drip texture in the photo at the bottom of this post.

So what should we call her? Have you got any suggestions? If so let me know!

 

Now if you want some more acrylic paint inspiration I have an acrylic paint playlist for you.

Or how about some easy art journaling videos to get you going?

 

So here’s to the changes and free-ing up my YouTube! Let’s see where this can take us next! I will be making the changes pretty much now so there may not be a video from me on Wednseday, we will have to see! I really hope that you will still be able to join me and enjoy my videos on YouTube and/ or on Patreon too!

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!

 

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.

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’.
