Elephant Parade – NEW Stencil

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Stencils and Masks

ElephantParade

By now I guess it is not a secret anymore that I have a slight elephant obsession and since so many asked for a smaller elephant stencil-there you go :) Elephant Parade is here

L321-3

The Stencil has 3 parts – An Elephant silhouette, Patterned Elephant Stencil and an Elephant Mask. This gives you loads of possibilities!

I sprayed the background of the art journal page with some Liquitex Spray Paints. Then I layered the ornamental elephant onto the left and sprayed with two different colors over the pattern. I cleaned off the stencil onto a different art journal page as to not waste paint and then flipped it over and repeated on the right side to get the elephant facing to the left. I used the elephant mask then over the elephants to mask off the images and sprayed over the background to change the background up.

Here is a different Elephant version for you:

Here I created a background with Liquitex Acylic Paints, then layered the elephant mask over an area and used Liquitex Spray paint and sprayed over the elephant mask. I repeated that several times carefully avoiding spraying into the newly created elephants. I used the Elephant stencil to trace with a journaling pen to give a bit more definition.

I had a great time last weekend in Dallas teaching at the CREATE Mixed Media Retreat. I taught 3 classes: “It’s All About the Layers- Art Journal”, “Encrusted Shrubbery- Canvas” and “Texture Heaven-Art Journal”. We used loads of fun Liquitex goodies- thank you Liquitex for the wonderful goodies I was able to give away!

I also brought my new stencils – that I just released and it was so much fun to see them used for the first time- wohoo!!! And there was a lot of hands on paint moments :)

It was great to spend so much time with my students in the day classes- and we laughed a lot…especially about my wrong doings in using “Y’all” …I guess “You’s” is wrong in any event in Texas- LOL

It was also wonderful to see some of my fellow teachers and friends at the event- we had a lot of fun in our “Liberace-Hotel” (that’s an insider for everyone who was there and a little side note about the hotel interior ;) )

Thank you to all my students- you were awesome and fun and super creative! A special shout out to Bill – rock on man!!!

If you are in Seattle – I will be teaching at the CREATE Seattle event coming up next month. I will teach four workshops

Intelligence … or In My Art Journal Today

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Journal

Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings

I painted the background with Soft Body Acrylic Paints and used Acrylic Inks with a Bamboo Pen to write the Journaling. The Bird Image is actually a collage piece I used a Transfer Technique on – it is part of the Liquitex Packaging for the new Michaels Transfer and Photo Collage Set. I ripped the sturdy watercolor paper to the size I wanted it and applied it to the background as I wanted it to be part of my art journal. It is a great sample how you can incorporate a collage piece into your art journal later.
