VIDEO: Easy watercolor mixed media flower art

Watercolor and gel medium don't mix, right? Well, oddly enough I love working with gel medium and watercolor together, you just get the most amazing textures and effects. Take for instance my video this week. It's a super easy, mixed media flower art tutorial that uses glass bead gel and watercolor. I know, crazy! But look how much fun it is! And all that amazing texture. But I have a confession, I made a totally rookie mistake! Got a bit too excited and threw caution to the wind when…

PaperArtsy Found Object Gel Skin

I was on the PaperArtsy blog recently with a project for their Found Objects theme, did you see it? I decided to go for a gel skin-based project using an old washer and a large grommet both found in the street, 'coz that is what I do, I find rubbish in the street and recycle it into art. Basically I am a Womble, except I don't live on Wimbledon Common. No the prices are too high in Wimbledon, I'm more an East London girl! There is also an piece…

Using Pencils With Your Stencils

Today I am using pencils with my stencils again! Ok, that kind of rhymes doesn't it? Pencils with my stencils, it makes me think of bananas in pyjamas coming down the stairs for some reason! Any ho, moving rapidly on, I've not lost it, honest. Well, I might have lost it but how would I know?! The pencils I am using with my stencils today are the Derwent Graphitints and a Stabilo All. Both these types of pencils are watersoluble and perfect for using with stencils.   [There are…

VIDEO: Textured And Layered Art Journal Page Using Stamped Layers And Watercolours

If you didn't think you could make a textured, layered watercolour art journal page then I hope that my video today will change your mind! We are all quite use to using acrylic paints to add layers to our art journal pages but how about watercolour layering? It is a little harder as watercolour will react to water even after it is dry but it is still possible to work on a watercoloured background without it washing away! And as for adding texture with watercolours, well there are lots…

New PaperArtsy Eclectica³ {Kim Dellow} Products Showcase: Michelle Short

It is a little nerve wracking asking people to work with something new that you have designed. I don't know if other designers feel this too but there is something amazing about seeing the sketches that you did being turned into products that other people are, hopefully, going to have fun with. So seeing the way that Michelle Short and Anneke De Clerck breathed life into these products for the February Release of the new stamps and stencils in the PaperArtsy Eclectica³ {Kim Dellow} range with their beautiful samples brings me real joy. I wanted…

VIDEO: Rainbow Painted Mini-Notebook

New video time and another in my PaperArtsy Make and Take video series. If you haven't yet caught up with this series this is the third of four projects. The first I shared was the Seth Apter-Inspired Canvas Board and the second was the Decorated Tape Dispenser Project. I put together all these projects for PaperArtsy and then ran them as Make and Take projects for them at Crafting At Ally Pally in September last year. But as I've been getting into videoing I decided to video the making of…
