A couple days ago I showed a tutorial on how to create an easy background in your art journal

and I promised to show what I would do with the result later. I just added a bit of stamping over both pages to tie it together, added the image , painted it with markers and then added the journaling. It was a quick but liberating art journal spread.

Here are the supplies that I used after I created the initial background:

I hope you liked seeing the transition :) Have a wonderful day

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Journal, Workshops

I’m so pleased to be a part of a wonderful online art journaling workshop called “21 Secrets” starting in April 2015

Spring 2015 small

21 SECRETS teachers create workshops that beautifully reflect who they are as an artist right here and now. The mission behind 21 SECRETS is to showcase a variety of approaches, techniques, and ways of integrating art journaling and creativity into one’s life. With both an open heart and an open art journal, together we as teachers provide our members the space, permission, and inspiration to navigate those unexplored territories within their own hearts that are longing to be fully expressed.

The 21 Secrets Spring Art Journaling Workshop is downloadable.

 

 

21 SECRETS Spring ART

What I teach? The Story Within a Story 

For me art journaling is visual story telling. It might not be a story that everyone can read but I can read it and that is all that counts. All my stories consist of many viewpoints and layers – thoughts, emotions and the story itself. I love to express the complexity of a story by building up layers and dimension through various techniques and texture.

In this workshop I would like to walk with you through my art journaling process. I will show you various layering techniques and I will tell you why and how I am doing what I am doing.

Join me in telling a creative story within a story.

21 SECRETS Spring 2015 Round

Some of the other teachers include: Eric Scott & Davd Modler – the Journal Fodder Junkies, Juliette Crane, Steve Salik, Jessica Leigh Brogan, Joyce van der Lely, You can read all about my class and the twenty other classes here
