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?

    This was a great color combination. The yellow is the perfect pop of color.

Abstract Kaffee Klatsch

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Altered Art

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.
