TALLER M. CARMEN SÁNCHEZ “CUCHY” – Words on wood

30.05.2015 – 16,00 hs. – 20,00 hs.

¿Ves esos carteles de madera con frases creativas y te preguntas cómo hacerlos? ¿Piensas que tu escritura “no tiene gracia” y te gustaría que fuera espectacular?

No tienes excusa. En nuestro taller “words on wood”, con M. Carmen Sánchez (Cuchy), pintaremos un panel de madera, envejeciéndolo y haremos que nuestra cita favorita destaque con una tipografía elegante, divertida y escrita por tí.

Además, las técnicas aprendidas podrás utilizarlas en tu art journal o en trabajos de scrapbooking.

Acompáñanos y deja que hablen las palabras.

Do you see those wooden panels with witty quotes and do you ask yourself how to do them? Do you think your handlettering is “dull” and you would like to make it stunning?

You do not have any excuse. In our workshop “words on wood” with M. Carmen Sánchez (Cuchy), we will paint a wooden panel, distress it and we will make our favourite quote to pop up with an elegant and funny typo, handwritten by you.

Besides, you could use the learned techniques in your art journal or in scrapbooking works.

Join us and let the words speak

 

Besos and hope to see some of you there!

Born An Original or… In My Art Journal Today

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Journal

You were born an original, don’t die a copy!

Love this! For this art journal spread I was trying out a new color combination –

NatKalbach_CC04

 

which I know I will use again – again- it was good just playing and finding things I would usually not work with :)

I added some texture by mixing in soft body acrylic paints with Liquitex Flexible Modeling Paste – and also used several of my stamps- including the new Mark Maker Set.

Here is a list of the supply :

How do you like the color combination? Does it speak to you?

Abstract Kaffee Klatsch

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Altered Art

NatKalbachKaffeeKlatsch01

This Canvas was really fun to make. I used the Stencil in my Kaffee Klatsch Stamp Set with Heavy Gesso, and used the stamps with Acrylic Paints but also pressed into the gesso and paint surface as texture tools.

I love how the patterns of the stamps became organic

some hints of purple and orange as a contrast and finished up with a splatter of black acrylic ink.

    These are the colors which scream Nat to me!
    I know that you need to experiment with new colors but these just grab me and the texture is wonderfully full and I could just dive in and swim out of this snow.
