Oh Hello or … In My Art Journal Today

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Journal


Oh Hello! “If you are brave enough to say goodbye, life will reward you with a new hello!”

I liked this quote – I said goodbye to a couple things last month and apparently what I thought to be a terrible thing, opened new doors 🙂 You never know, right. But I do believe that everything happens for a reason and that “everything will work out” in the end. Hey – if we hadn’t had that optimism what else would be left sometimes 😉


For this page I collaged some book paper onto the surface, painted it, then covered some areas with masking tape and wax, painted over again, heated the wax, removed it, removed the masking tape and painted some areas again. Love the peeled paint effect. Makes me really happy! You can see a whole list of supplies on the bottom of this post.
