The Only One or … In My Art Journal Today

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Journal


“And so today, my world it smiles, your hand in mine we walk the miles,

Thanks to you it will be done, for you to me are the only one.” Led Zeppelin


Over a painted background I added a mix of blue paint and gesso and while the mix was still wet, I layered the Peacock Background Stencil on top and using a babywipe removed parts of the paint again. This revealed the underlying paint once again. I layered the stencil on top again and spread some embossing paste through it.


I stamped the Elephant rubber stamp with archival ink on top of the background and enhanced some areas of the elephant design with markers and pencils.


For the journaling I used a black acrylic marker and then overwrote it with a white signo pen.

Here are all supplies I used:

    The peacock stencil reminds me of an India type tapestry – perfect for accenting your wonderful elephant. This is just gorgeous Nat. You colors are so unique – I would never have thought to put them together but you – are so good at making colors look unique. They truly look wonderful on your pages. And that pop of pink on your elephant is just perfect too. How I adore your work. Have a super fine weekend sweetie. Hugs. j.
