The Making Of A #Vlog for #PASCATC0518 #chaiwithsuzy

Vlog02: Today's vlog is about the making of the pick a stick ATC  (artist trading card) challenge for May 2018.

The challenge is hosted monthly by Shel C and Peg Robinson. See youtube for details. 

So grab a cuppa and join me in the making of #PASCATC0518





Some notes on my creation:
  • Done entirely in watercolour.
  • Crush - the clouds were made by crushing a soft tissue and wiping off the paint
  • Layer - the hills were created by layering - I had about 4 layers with the darkest on the horizon
  • Mix - I mixed orange and white to create a coral colour for the lupins and then mixed in a bit of red.
          But I should've used a better quality watercolour paper!


There were some comments from my last vlog on how I made the video and uploaded it so here are some quick notes on that.
  • Then I used Windows Movie Maker on my laptop to edit the video and stitch bits together
  • I don't know about other blogging sites, but blogger has an insert video facility that I used to upload the video. I could also upload to my youtube channel and then embed here but I'm not yet ready for youtube exposure. (update 03 june: uploaded on youtube)
Maybe in the future I will make a video on how I create my vlogs but I hope for now these short notes will do. 

I enjoyed painting and making this video and I hope you enjoyed it too. Join me again next week for another #vlog and #chaiwithsuzy. 

Have an awesome week.

  2. For all that I take still photographs, vlogging is something I really haven't tried. It's also been years and years since I tried to watercolor. Very nice! The Unknown Journey Ahead agingonthespectrum.blogspot.com

    1. Thanks Shalz. I learned the cloud technique from makoccino on youtube. The layering is also a technique I learned from her.
