Retreat2015

So stoked that I will be rounding up my European Tour in June  with an Artfusion Weekend teaching with my dear friend Birgit Koopsen at the De Craftorij Retreat 2015 in The Netherlands.  The retreat will take place in a gorgeous hotel in Ede on June 13 -14, 2015. You can read all details about the event, workshops, hotel etc.  in Dutch and English here.

Sign up is open now, you can book single days or a whole weekend .  I hope I will see some of my European friends there!

Have a wonderful day

Fear of the Unknown or… In My Art Journal Today

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Journal

I was experimenting with doing a minimalistic art journal page …well for me it is pretty minimalistic ;) I had painted the background yellow, and then attached some mono printed deli paper prints in stripes onto the page. Using the What’s The Point Stencil I added some texture with Flexible Modeling Paste here and there.

Using my Elephant Stencil (in the supply list) I used the mask and spray painted over it, then I used the stencil and filled out the elephant with some Kaffee Klatsch stamping. I added some marks and the quote with an alpha stamp.

It was a quick and fun page and a good start to get into the creative groove so I could start on a canvas. Sometimes we need something to get over the blank-canvas-procrastination-stage.

Do you have a ritual to get over your blank stage?

    That is simply beautiful and yes, less textured than usual.
    Important quote as well.

    I’m always a fan of yellow, and the deli printed papers rock!

    Nat, I especially like how the white stamped image shows up on the blue. Nice job as usual.
