My Second Video Tutorial

Hey everyone,

You were all so encouraging with my first video that I got to it and made another. Lol. How is it possible that I am more scared to post my second video than the first?! Maybe because I want to keep doing a good job for you. Hopefully after I'm done a few the jitters will go away ;)

Watercolour Technique using Mohair Wool

This one is a Watercolour Technique using Mohair Wool to create subtle background texture. This technique works with any fur-like fibre. I actually stumbled across it by accident thanks to one of my cats. The story is at the end of the video ;)

I use Dylusions ink sprays to demonstrate the effect but you can also use Watercolour Paints, Tombow Markers, or most inks/water-based paints.

The video is 4 minutes long. I'm trying to keep my video tutorials short while being as clear as possible. I would love for you to leave me a comment. They really motivate me to step out of my comfort zone to make more videos for you :) Here goes!

Bye for now,

Ryn

    The genesis of the art very surprising:-) I wonder how kitty looked after the act of creating?

  15. Good tutorial, easy to follow! I like how you adjust the process as needed - it shows there is no set recipe for getting the results. I learn much more from that then when you'd do it without rewetting the paper, it shows the importance of it. (And that I don't have to go easy on the ink/water).
    Going to order again soon, been waiting long enough, getting withdrawal symptoms!
    ps: loved all your cards you showed! December was very very busy for me, seems things are quieting down a bit now, so got a bit of time to craft, read blogs and make a blogpost again!

    1. Hey Debbie, thanks for the feedback about me showing how I adjust the process. I learned that from Kellie Murton (on my DT). She shows and explains her whole thought process which I found to be very helpful as well :) I'm glad that you liked my cards though December. Hope you had a good Christmas/New Years even if busy :) Can't wait to see what you come up with when you get into crafting again! Talk soon, Ryn
