This is actually a page I made teaching my art journaling class at Pratt- it was so much fun. Lot’s of stamping, scraping paints and stenciling.

Don’t Allow or… In My Art Journal Today

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Journal

“Don’t allow your wounds to turn you into a person you are not.”

I loved creating this page!

I used acrylic paints, stencils and stamps for the background and found a magazine image that fit to my quote and painted over with markers and charcoal stick.

I love that with art journaling you can tell a story but without revealing the whole story- that is the way how I prefer it. Everyone one does it differently- and if you want to write a lot- than that is the right way too – I just happen to rather hide it a bit more 🙂

Here are all the supplies I used – some of the links are affiliate links.

    Wow – probably just what I needed to hear Nat. Lately I have had a few bumps in the art world and it has made me step back a bit. I need to remember your journal page today. Great background and your gal looks perfect for the sentiment! Thanks bunches. XXj.

Creative Ice Breaker – Morning Art Journal Play Video IV

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Journal, Creative Ice Breaker

Creative-IceBreaker_2016_07_31

In the mornings I play in my art journal to get myself into the creative groove and break the ice – so to speak- and get ready to paint. I recorded and fast forwarded my morning ritual for this video – and hope you enjoy it. Take it as what it is – a morning art journal play- not a tutorial 🙂 – BTW- I had to buy a new camera and as you might see, I am still trying to get used to it. I learned a lot about it during the video- so bear with me on the bit of a weirdo-focus-color-format journey in this video – I promise it will be better next time.

    I could not believe it when you started putting gesso over that lovely background, I was almost shouting at the screen, but what a lovely page you created and how wrong I was, gorgeous.
