If it Scares You or … In My Art Journal Today

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Journal


If it scares you, it might be a good thing to try!

I believe that is true – almost every time, I thought of something I would love to do or achieve and it sounded scary it was a good decision …like quitting my paralegal job to become an artist…or moving to the U.S. … So time for me to encounter another thing that scares me – we shall see 😉


This was a quick page in the morning – I had painted the background a couple weeks ago and had experimented with glazes. It got a bit dark in the process, so I added a huge field of white gesso scratched on with an old hotel key card. Later I spray painted using my StencilGirl Products Lilly Stencil and two different colors of Liquitex Spray Paint. Sometimes Art Journaling doesn’t have to be a long process- remember – you are the boss apple sauce 😉

Art Tapas – Bite Sized Tips for the Mixed Media Artist – Tip #4 Watercolor Storage

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Tapas


Art Tapas are short videos (1- 3 mins) that will give some practical tips or advice about anything that is related to tools, art supplies or processes and any Mixed Media or Hobby Artist might appreciate. Lots of times these reflect some mistakes that I made along my journey, so to speak, things that I learned the hard way and sometimes they are just some things that I would have loved to have known when I actually started in Mixed Media.

I hope you enjoyed this art tapa which was brought to you with the help of my awesome watercolor artist friend Mario Robinson. Check his website out -and if you love watercolor – his classes. He is not only an amazing artist, he is also super cool and fun and a great teacher! If you have questions that you would love to have answered in some of the Art Tapas videos- let me know and I might just cook one up for you to nibble on :)

Happy Creating !
