No Line Watercoloring Technique

Nolinevideo1

Hello Blogosphere! It's Tiffany with another Video Tutorial for you! Today, I'll be sharing a way to recreate the No Line Coloring method with Watercoloring! For this technique, we'll be stamping our images with the Stamper's Big Brush Pens in Subtle Colors & then coloring with Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils and Gelatos®.

There are so many benefits to using the Stamper's Big Brush Pens:

  • Lightfast, so they don't fade in the sun or over time
  • Odorless, no nasty migraines from fumes
  • Permanent, perfect to Mix & Match with the watercoloring mediums
  • No Bleed-through, so you can stamp or color with these without worrying about the ink bleeding through your cardstock!
  • India Ink

Art Journal with Jen Matott

JournalJenMatott1

I'm in a "Art Journal Swap" that trades journals and each person does a page in it following a theme that is set by the owner of the book.  It's fun to see what others have done in the book prior to you getting it but it's equally fun to create a page to pass on!

This book's owner left the theme up to each artist.  I just chose to create something mixed media with texture and color!  I wanted to keep my theme about art and creation.

Gold is everywhere!

RitaBarakat
 
Hey there artsy peeps Rita Barakat here. Have you noticed that ever where you look - fashion, gone decor, scrap booking, gold is everywhere! So I really has fun creating this project in blues - with gold hair!

 

RitabarakatMixedMedia2
For this project I used the brand new Texture Gems for the gold! I used a mini spatula to spread the gold color - it lookd amazing in person! For the blues I used a blueberry Gelatos®Colors and a #144  Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils. Using more or less color and water you can get more shades out of one or two colors! So have you been using gold on your projects? You should! Gold is awesome!

Blessings!

Blessing,
Rita

Limiting your color palette- Steampunk Colors

RitaBarakatSteampunkGelatosA100
Hey there Arsty peeps Rita Barakat here!  I am doing a little spotlight on Steampunk Gelatos®Colors. If you are ever stuck for ideas sometimes limiting your color palette can be a great way to challenge yourself! Especially if the colors are outside of your comfort zone! That's what I did here on this art journal page. By repeating layers of complementary colors you can get a lot of depth in your work and challenging your self is always a great way to grow!

Steampunk Birthday

LisaAdametz-Steampunk-Bday-1

Hi everyone! It's Lisa here with you and I'm sharing a watercolor type of card made with the Gelatos® Steampunk colors. The way that I created it leaves the colors looking much softer than you'd expect, though. The paper itself has a resist embedded into it, which is very cool. Let me show you how:

How about a Shamrock shake? And the winners of March Take the Challenge

FCMarch2015_ArtJournal_MouS

Hi everyone, Mou here with today's post! It's an art journal page. We are not Irish, but living here in the U.S., we are touched by many cultures and their celebrations in one way or another. For instance, on St. Patrick's Day, the kids have to wear something green to school and we love having Shamrock shakes from McDonald's... and I think it's great to have these opportunities to learn about other countries and cultures.

 To create this page, I took the following steps:

Attach old book paper to journal page with Gel Medium.

When dry, apply a coat of Gesso.

Sketch a drink cup with straw.

Color the page with Gelatos®colors: Lavender, Red Cherry, Mango, Pistachio, Blueberry, Grape, Coconut, Aqua Dolce, and Black Cherry. Blend with waterbrush.

Journal next to the cup with PITT® artist pen BLACK.

Dot the page with Stamper's Big White pen to finish.

Supplies:

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accents:  Gesso, Gel Medium,

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos®: Blueberry, Grape (BLUE set); Lavender, Red Cherry (RED set); Mango (YELLOW set); Pistachio (GREEN set); Aqua Dolce (50's DINER); Coconut (NEUTRALS set); Black Cherry (STEAMPUNK set) 

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big White pen
 
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Essential PITT Artist pens: BLACK
 
Hope you enjoyed today's post and would journal about the big and little things about how other cultures impact your lives!

And now, the winners of  March 2015 Take the Challenge with Mou...
