Flower Girl – Mixed Media Art Journal page

IMG_20190425_213052 (1)Always great to be back at Lulu Art! I hope everyone has been able to find some arty time in the last month?

Today I wanted to showcase Kylie’s fabulous face stencils from Artistcellar. I chose the 3/4 face ‘JOY’ for this small art journal page. These face stencils make journaling faces so quick and easy… more time for journaling and less time for stessing about face math and getting my proportions correct. Kylie has done almost all the work for you… yay!

I am also using some of StudioLight’s, Art by Marlene Signature Collection 3.0 in this video aswell… the texture plate and the HANDY size small journal. This collection will be coming to Lulu Art very soon… so keep your eye out for all the new goodies!

But that is not all… Darkroom Door’s great polka dot stencil, Dina Wakley Media – new colours and Prismacolor pencils get a work out as well.

So I hope you enjoy watching what I get up to this month.

Full list of all the supplies will follow this post.

Have fun watching!

Enjoy!

Kylie’s Face Stencils….Giveaway..Yay!!

I’ve been working on creating some face stencils for Lisa over at Artistcellar. I’m so happy at how they turned out.

Lulu Art Design team member Dani Choate has created a mixed media tutorial HERE for you to see one of the stencils being used.

From left to right they are; PEACE, JOY, SERENITY and HOPE. More of my design team are busy creating beautiful mixed media tutorials using my Fowler Face Stencils. Keep an eye out for those.

I’ve been working in my art journal, playing around with these stencils. I used a Tombow Brush Marker 772-Blush through these stencils to start with.

Here is what I created with stencil HOPE.

Inks & Flowers by Kooky Makes

Kooky_picHi everyone,
I hope you managed a break over Easter, preferably one filled with art.
Over the last few weeks I’ve been rediscovering my love of inks and stencils for bright and colourful backgrounds. A few people have asked me how I manage to keep the colours from ‘muddying’ or going grey so I thought I’d share my techniques with you.
In my video I go through my take on colour theory and the colour wheel when working with Dylusions (or any other non-permanent inks) and create the background for this bright pretty piece.
You can watch the video here:
Supplies List:
Here are the key things to remember with my techniques:
  1. Keep to just a few layers.
  2. Keep cool and warm colours separate
  3. Dab the ink off between sprays
  4. If colours start to get muddy dab them off with the paper towel
  5. Use sprayed water to make colours less vivid or to remove/reduce colour you don’t like the look/placement of.
  6. Work round the piece.
  7. Leave the piece to dry completely before you go in again with more colour!
I hope you enjoy the video and learn something that helps you have more fun with these gorgeous inks. Do share your lovely creations on the Lulu Art & Friends facebook page.
