LOUNGE SESSIONS = regular mixed media videos!

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

For me,ย 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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?!

Iโ€™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 Iโ€™m filming may not always be super exciting but… That’s just reality! Iโ€™ll do my best to show you what Iโ€™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 โ€˜Studio Timeโ€™ 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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……ย We all have that problem ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 24

When it’s not big fat flowers, I go for big fat leaves as focal points LOL Lounge Session 24 is about keeping things simple (& shimmery, of course)!

Lounge Session 23

A large flower appeared as the focal point of Lounge Session 23… Simple, proud and free! Flowers & circles are my go to focal points in a lot of my art!

Lounge Session 22

In Lounge Session 22 I’m finishing up a page with potential: it already has pretty colours and yummy 3D texture so it won’t need much more to look cool ๐Ÿ™‚

Lounge Session 21

I received some happy mail with little artworks made from my book Secret Stash so… I incorporated into a colourful art journal so I never lose them!

Lounge Session 20

Black is king in Lounge Session 20 and whenever I use it, I always get such a strong impact! Add a little sparkle and… yes!

Lounge Session 19

Drip it, stamp it, spray it, paint it, splatter it… I’m using some of my favourite products in Lounge Session 19: FW acrylic inks & Marabu Art Sprays!

Lounge Session 18

In Lounge Session 18 I am showing how I created the smaller artwork I used in Lounge Session 15! Should I have uploaded first but I forgot :-p

Lounge Session 17

You don’t need a hundred layer to create a beautiful art journal page. Just a touch of glitter in Lounge Session 17 was enough to lift my spirits!

Lounge Session 16

In Lounge Session 16 I’m trying to make a bland page more interesting with subtle marks but it’s only when I added neon colours that it came to life!

Lounge Session 15

Lounge Session 15 is about combining 2 elements I created previously (a background and a smaller artwork) into one cohesive (and finished) layout ๐Ÿ™‚

Lounge Session 14

Sometimes, creating a page is about combining elements together, and making them ”work” together into a unified layout. This is what I do… Let’s play ๐Ÿ™‚

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!!)…
