LOUNGE SESSIONS = regular mixed media videos!

Want to see the ‘behind the scenes’ of my creative life?

For me, BEING AN ARTIST IS ALL ABOUT:

Experimenting…
Getting messy with paints and inks…
Playing with new and loved products…
Working on several things at the same time…
Making art for the simple joy of making art!

Let me share these secret creative moments with you 😉

Lounge Sessions are sneak peek videos of what I do in my secondary studio (in my lounge!). My time to play and create tutorials during the day is quite limited at the moment as my Mixed Media Store is keeping me quite busy! So I created a secondary studio in my lounge room so I can play with my supplies in the evening and still be able to interact with my family (and watch tv from the corner of my eye sometimes!)… And now, I will be sharing regular videos of what I do there…
Interested??

Not the best quality but… better than nothing, right?!

I’m only able to share these moments with you because I will save time NOT editing, NOT listing supplies used (most can be found in my store mixedmediastore.com.au) & NOT responding to questions… Nobody really knows how time consuming it is to creating full video tutorials with a list of supplies, instructions, photos etc until they try it out themselves haha If I’m sharing less than perfect videos with you then it leaves me more time create more videos so it’s a win-win right? Not so nice videos are better than no videos in my opinion!

So what does that mean?

That means a bit of camera wobble, not the best lighting, you may see the tripod feet sometimes, the angle may not be the best to see what everything I’m doing, and what I’m filming may not always be super exciting but… That’s just reality! I’ll do my best to show you what I’m doing as I go along and what I use but it will be minimal. If you prefer more polished videos, do check out my ‘Studio Time’ videos instead… Showing you less than polished videos goes against my slightly OCD nature but in the end, sharing is caring, right?!

My secondary studio…

I have always had my own little studio (it hasn’t always as glamourous as it may sound!) where I paint and play and film but lately, caring for my fur baby has forced me to do almost all my work next to him. His health issues and dementia means he cannot/will not stay at my feet in my studio downstairs unfortunately so… I created a smaller, secondary studio next to him upstairs 😉 Oh, and that’s in my lounge as I’m sure you have figured out by now! Playing and experimenting with supplies, creating journal pages, art tags and so on can get pretty messy and take space, right??? Yeah…… We all have that problem 🙂 So I had to create a mini version of my larger studio (I’ll do a video with more details soon) so everything fits one one desk, in one corner of the lounge – which is why the camera is placed as it is in the videos.

Watch all Mixed Media LOUNGE SESSIONS VIDEOS below…

Don’t forget to watch the intro video at the top of this page to understand what Lounge Sessions are (and are not) about!

Lounge Session 13

I wanted to use my new Art by Marlene stamps so I picked my favourite one to make this art journal page really look great (well, I’m biased!!)…

Lounge Session 12

Part 2 of my ’round stencil on a rectangular page” dilemna 😉 Got to use my Posca pens to add a few marks and now I’m loving this art journal page!

Lounge Session 11

A round stencil was the inspiration for this Lounge Session 11 so, let’s try to fit a round peg in a ‘rectangular’ page, shall we?!!!

Lounge Session 10

Nothing pops more than painting on a black background and adding happy (and maybe a little fluorescent?!) colours right on top… This style of mixed medias makes my heart sing!!

Lounge Session 9

It has been quite a journey to get there but I am FINALLY happy with the results!! It all started in Lounge Session 8 but ended for good in Lounge Session 9 😉

Lounge Session 8

Lounge Session 8 was a struggle! I thought I was getting somewhere with my art journal page and then I got stuck… I tried and tried and still got nowhere lol It just happens sometimes!

Lounge Session 7

Texture is the goal of Lounge Session 7! I love using modeling paste (also called texture paste) to add dimension to my pages and this pretty stencil really made my art journal page pop 🙂

Lounge Session 6

Lucky me, I got another set of stamps from IndigoBlu called ‘Light and Sounds’, aren’t these cool?? Let’s see what they look like stamped in Lounge Session 6! These may just become another favourite of mine…

Lounge Session 5

In Lounge Session 5 I started with a page that was almost finished but… needed something extra. Sometimes you don’t need much to make your page feel complete!

Lounge Session 4

In Lounge Session 4 I am finding a creative way to use the mixed media piece I created in Lounge Session 3 by turning it into a larger art journal page!

Lounge Session 3

In Lounge Session 3 I am creating a small mixed media piece with a collage of deli paper I smothered in delicious watercolours and the prettiest flower napkin I have ever seen!

Lounge Session 2

Today in Lounge Session 2 I am turning a page I was testing new stamps one (the ones from IndigoBlu I tested out in Lounge Session 1) into an an art journal page I love 😉
