When you are home alone and feel bored, don’t know what to do when bored, all these ideas and techniques are great DIY projects that are not only fun, creative, but also oddly satisfying! Some of them you can also do when you are bored at school. 😉

#1 Water Droplets Watercolor Painting
For this project you are going to need an aqua brush, watercolor paper and watercolors! You can create different watercolor designs, techniques and patterns using this fun, relaxing and easy watercolor technique!

#2 Mandala Drawing
In this Mandala drawing tutorial I will show you step by step how to draw a Mandala! Drawing a Mandala is oddly satisfying and super relaxing as well! I was realy mesmerized and fascinated how relaxing it is to draw a mandala!

#3 Spirograph Art
Creating art with a spirograph is so fun and satisfying! You can really play around with it and create different designs! While focusing on every design and the movement of the Spirograph, you really feel more and more relaxed! I also felt super excited and fascinated by this project because I wanted to see what other interesting designs I can achieve!

#4 Pen Hack
For the last oddly satisfying project you will need a dry erase pen that usually come with a white board, a little bit of water and a smooth surface. I used a plate because it worked best for me! Draw any doodle you like, just be sure the lines are connected! Carefully add water ontop and the ink will slowly detach from the surface and start floating! Now you can play around with it and have fun! I find this pen hack is so silly and so fun!

Fun & Creative Things To Do When You Are Bored At Home | What To Do When Bored!

Hey guys! Today I’m going to show you fun & creative things you can do when you feel bored at home!

You can try these fun and creative DIY projects when you are bored and don’t know what to do! In this tutorial I will show you not only how to doodle and how to create doodling art, how to create a dot painting, but I will also share an abstract art technique and show you how to create unique and abstract art using a plastic bag and acrylic paint. Lastly I will show you how to create hand lettering quote art using watercolors in this tutorial! All these things you can do when you are bored are fun DIY projects for kids and the whole family, but also a great way to create art while relaxing!

When you are home alone and feel bored, don’t know what to do when bored, all these ideas and techniques are great DIY projects that are not only fun but also creative!

#1 Doodling Art
There are a lot of doodle art tutorials for beginners on YouTube, but even when you have an idea and feel inspired to doodle, sometimes you still don’t know what to doodle! This is a great opportunity to do art just for the process! Create random lines, make them overlap each other and then start somewhere! Add lines, circles, squares, anything that comes to your mind!

#2 Hand Lettering / Quote Art
Another fun thing is to learn hand lettering and create inspirational quote art! There are quote art tutorials and they are a great way to start! Find inspiration online and decide what font you would like to use! For my tutorial I used an aqua brush because you can just press the brush to release the water! But you can use normal brushes as well!
Font: Lauren

Similar to my Aqua Brush: http://amzn.to/2js8bDq *

#3 Unique & Abstract Art Techniques
Creating abstract art is another fun thing to do when you are bored! For this abstract art technique you will need a plastic bag, something firm to wrap it ar (cutting board), acrylic paint and paper! Don’t use too much paint or it can get very messy! This is one of many abstract art painting ideas, but since you never know how the painting will turn out, it makes the result surprising and even better!

#4 Dot painting on Canvas / Dot Art Painting
From random dots to DOT ART, creating a dot painting is another fun activity! It’s a little bit similar to Pointillism but here it is inspired by different artists and the Aboriginal art!
I came across this type of art through Instagram and working with kids. It’s very therapeutic and relaxing. Aboriginal art has a deeper meaning that you can look into as well! You can tell stories through this type of art or just create beautiful artwork while relaxing!

Check out these talented artists on IG!

DIY: Bookmarks & Watercolor Techniques for Beginners Part 2 | Watercolor DIY | How To Make Bookmarks

Hey guys! I have another video about DIY Bookmarks & Watercolor DIY Techniques for Beginners Part 2! Perfect for book lovers & for Back to School! I will show you how to make Watercolor Bookmarks using different Watercolor Painting Techniques & Watercolor Hacks to keep this Watercolor Tutorial easy!

 

In this DIY Bookmark video I will show you another 6 DIY watercolor bookmark design ideas using different watercolor techniques & watercolor hacks such as different stencils, masking fluid alternatives, acrylic paint, glazing, lifting, wax resist / crayons, bubble wrap & more to create beautiful abstract & unique DIY watercolor paintings as bookmarks!

Want to see more of my videos? Subscribe to my channel on YouTube and don’t miss out on any new uploads!

#1 Lifting technique
For the first watercolor technique you will need watercolors, tissue paper and a coin or a pen! You can basically use any object with a flat surface. Load up your wet brush with paint and apply it over the wet area. This technique is called wet on wet or wet in wet. It is great to great dreamy and loose transitions between colours. Wrap the tissue paper around your coin so the tissue is flat and then press it down and lift it. And you should get a paint free area!

#2 Glazing
The next watercolor technique is great to adjust the tone and colours of your watercolor painting. Apply a thin layer of paint over the dry layer of watercolor paint. Here I used yellow colored paint to add warmth to the painting!

#3 Stencils
Stencils are another great way to create unique watercolor paintings. You can use the lifting technique and a stencil or acrylic paint that you dab over the stencil by using a sponge brush or a brush. If you use the lifting technique, take a clean wet brush and make several brush strokes over the area where you want to lift the watercolor. Wipe the watercolor from your brush onto a dampened tissue paper and repeat the step. You can also dab on the tissue and lift some of the paint to remove and lift more paint, rinse off your brush again and repeat the steps. This technique is great for removing any watercolor mistakes, making the colour lighter or for interesting designs!

#4 Bubble wrap
For the next technique you will need bubble wrap! Apply some paint in the colours of your choice using a wet brush and then place the bubble wrap on top. Carefully press it down and let it completely dry. When it’s completely dry, you can peel it off and you get a unique pattern!

#5 Wax resistant
Using crayons for watercolor paintings is another great idea to create unique designs. It’s another alternative to masking fluid! Draw a pattern or letters and then reveal the design by applying watercolor on top!

#6 Layering
The next technique is all about layering. Since watercolor is naturally rather transparent, you can play around with the opacity by layering different colours. Here I created different coloured circles by using bright colours that I mixed with lots of water to get a bright layer of paint!
