Details for Accidental Mermaid and Her Un-Armed Beauty

My videos aren’t meant to instruct as much as they are meant to share, entertain, inspire, and encourage.  I have listed some of them under the label of how-to only because YouTube doesn’t provide me the proper label like "Art" for example.

But, since part of my goals are to share information and to inspire others toward their own creative endeavors, I will do my best to share with you what I understand myself to be doing in the following videos, as requested.

Accidental Mermaid

1- leaf imprints (instructions on this can be found under the tutorial/tips label on the right side)
2- carbon paper used with plastic embossing thingies (that's the technical term) those machines use  *you don't need a machine to use 'em ;)  YAY!!
3- Golden Matte Medium (to protect the carbon layer)
4- spray bottle with water and food color
5- regular ballpoint pen
6- gesso (which turns recently used pen ink purple)
7- Apple Barrel acrylic craft paint in Apricot
8- DecoArt Dazzling Metallics Elegant Finish in Moss Pearl
9- more pen was probably added when I wasn't filming to darken shadows and outlines

Her Un-Armed Beauty (if you can't view this video - hop over to my YouTube channel and watch the other one listed that isn't blocked)

*this video was done longer ago, so the details for me are more fuzzy*

1- charcoal stick
2- gesso
3- pencil
4- acrylic blue probably using a moist brush
5- DecoArt Dazzling Metallics Elegant Finish in Moss Pearl
6- acrylic purple (maybe with a moist brush or dry brushed on, I'm not sure, either will give you a lovely effect though)
7- colored pencil
8- FolkArt acrylic paint in Parchment
9- more moss pearl paint, acrylic rose, acrylic purple, more parchment, more purple
10- gesso
11- stamp using stamp ink pressed onto page, then water brushed on stamp and stamped on page for a wetter, less crisp image
12- pencil
13- gesso
14- pen
15- gesso rolled on
16- more pencil
17- more gesso
*backs of photos:  masking tape, gesso, 2 acrylic purples*
18- clock stencil used with black acrylic paint and gesso

Any further questions, please leave a comment here and I'll do my best to answer.

Now, go do some art journalling - it's ever so much fun!


Ps:  As always, I send my gratitude out into the Universe for all the love and light that You reflect in my direction.  squeezies
