Over the weekend I setup a small watercolour palette with some of my favourite granulating colours with an autumnal feel. I just wanted to have a small box, because I plan to take this on out on location drawing. Click more for a list of the paints that are in there and to see some samples.
In today’s video I have a closer look on the Paul Rubens Oil Pastels and the new Arrtx acrylic markers. I have you to tell in advance, that I am not an oil pastel artist! I love mixed media and I use oil pastels in my sketchbook to add some accents or for mark making in my art journal. For this purpose I am really happy with both sets. The pastels are super creamy and blend really nicely. The acrylic markers have a brush tip and are permanent once they are dry! This is awesome, as I’ve never seen something like that.
I am creating in my Dina Wakley Media Journal today. As it’s almost completely full I try to finish up the last pages. For my spread I am using an embossing resist technique with white powder and watercolors. I am adding texture with watercolor pencils and of course some of my new mixed media stamps. My focal image is one of the cute birdies from my Textured Birds stamp set.
In today’s video I show you how easy you can create an easy art journal spread with stamps and Distress Inks and Oxide Ink Pads. This technique is perfect to use in your art journal, on scrapbooking layouts or handmade greeting cards. I am using my brand new stamps set, the Pencil Marks #6. They are available together with a bunch of other new clear sets over in our shop.
Today’s video is a playful process in my junky art journal. It’s handmade and I love to create grungy and colorful spreads in it. For the main images on the page I used some loose colored stamped images from my Sketchy Flowers #1 and the Sketchy Flowers #3 sets. On the background I worked with Liquitex Acrylic Gouache.
I love playing with different materials in my handmade junk art journal. It’s bound from left over painted papers, old book pages and tea-dyed papers. I stitched signitures with around 4 papers (= 8 pages) and glued these together with a gummed paper tape. For this spread I played with the Rubber Dance Bold & Beautiful, Mixed Media Borders and Lace Borders stamp sets.
Playing abstract with watercolors is one of my favourite habits to take some creative minutes off on a busy day. It’s an relaxing, joyful and intuitive process. I combine the watercolors with other materials like pencils, crayons and stamps.

In today’s video I have a closer look on the Paul Rubens GUCAI Watercolors. These are metallic watercolors. They are great for handlettering, mixed media projects, cardmaking and to add beautiful accents to your watercolor paintings. Some colors are more opaque than others, some are interference and some have a more glittery granulating effect.
