Do you remember this project? I shared a little clip of it in December as one of my Art Slices videos for that month. Well this week I am sharing the whole project as a video. It's made using Gouache paint, a little bit of acrylic paint and line work with a paint pen. I've already mentioned here on my blog how I am enjoying playing with Gouache paints so they were a natural grab for me when making this page. Then the line work is really an extension of the work I have been doing over on Instagram with my #DellowDailyDrawing or my watercolour shares.
I hope that you enjoy the video showing how to make an art journal page using Gouache paint and a paint pen. I'm trying something new for me and my video making, I have used a mix of voice over and music, so you are seeing the whole page as it happens but as a timelapse to keep the video short. Let me know what you think!

You can see all the paint distressing texture in this photo:
I do love a bit of paint distressing, don't you? Have you used the technique I shared in my video to distress paint? And if you haven't do you think you will give it a go?
