My Favourite New Art Tool.



You may have noticed the new white mat I have been using in some of my video tutorials. I am really loving it. It is made of silicone, and takes wet media very well. It's also great for smooshing ink directly onto the plate for pickup, and lets you see very clearly what colour inks you are working with.

I found this video explain gin the features of the mat, and thought you might like to see the many ways you can use it.

I am a lefty, so I use the mat with the ink palettes on the right hand side.

Have a creatively colourful day!

Yupo with Spray Can Paints. Step By Step Art Journal Tutorial.



You have to try this incredible new technique! Painting on Yupo paper with Spray paint!
I am addicted to this (full confession, I can't stop making art!)


 See how the paint creates movement on the Yupo paper. The technique is similar to marbling, but the slipperiness of the paper and oil-based spray  paint creates beautiful patterns and swirls.


I added some coaster board die-cut shapes using my Stampin' Up! Framelits, over black card stock to create a dropped shadow effect.


Here it sits on my desk in my 6' x 6' Hand Book Spiral bound art journal.


Thanks for stopping by! Let me know if you would like to see more technique videos like these. Vicki x

Here is the step by step video , and instructions on how to enter the giveaway this month. Good luck, and have a colour-filled weekend! Vicki xx
