Those of you who were part of the Creative JumpStart 2013 saw the videos that me and my artist friends posted on my website throughout January 2013.  The videos are not available here anymore, since CJS 2013 was only available till June,  but I thought it would be nice to repost my 10 technique videos over the next couple weeks- so that you have access to them whenever you want and see what CJS 2013 was all about.

And now let’s jump to the video Number 8 in my Über*Media Creative JumpStart 2013 Workshop which was the PanPastel Resist Technique :)

If you have no external speakers on your pc – turn up the volume a lot (the audio is very low in this video)

As you might have seen I just proposed Creative JumpStart 2014!

CJS2014Lable

It will work slightly different this year and has some major improvements like a forum and an easier access- and I can tell you already the line up of artists and the videos are AWESOmE!!! For 20 Dollars -that is less than 1 Dollar per video (23 videos by 21 artists) it is a great deal! Check out the information here :)

I would love to have you!

And here are my supplies I used for the PanPastel Resist Video above:

Have a gorgeous and wonderful day!

The Grass is Greener Where You Water It or…PanPastel Metallics

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Journal, PanPastel, Stencils and Masks

The wonderful people at PanPastel sent me three pans with their new metallic colors to try out and since it is not a big secret that I really love PanPastels, I was looking forward playing with them.

I created a PanPastel Background and then layered here and there some Parchment Paper over it with Matte Gel Medium. This also sealed the background, so that I wouldn’t have to use any fixative. On top the the texture that was created with the parchment paper I added some of the metallic colors . Then I layered my Arabesque Stencil over it and sprayed with Spray Paint.

I also used the PanPastel Metallics for accents on the drawings on top of the acrylic markers. I love how you can achieve nice sparkly accents- although…it is so hard to photograph and capture this.

I almost wish it was make up as those colors are so nice but let’s face it…I might be better painting on paper then in my face ;)

    Love this post…I was in need of a good laugh! Thank you. You’re too funny. Love that quote and I so want some pan pastels. I haven’t invested in them, yet, but they are on top of my want list. I know I will love them and from what I’ve read, they are a great bang for your buck. Got to get them soon!

    Nathalie, I absolutely ADORE these pages and seeing your process!
    Think I’m in trouble (in a good way!) because Pan Pastels come in metallics now! :)

What’s The Point or…New Stencil with Stencil Girl Products

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in PanPastel, Scrapbooking Layouts, Stencils and Masks

Ohhh I am so excited about this new What’s The Point stencil too because it has so many possibilities.

NathalieKalbach_WhatsThePoint01

For this Scrapbooking layout I used my new What’s The Point Stencil with PanPastels. Beforehand I had also treated the paper with PanPastels, then laid the stencil on top and dabbed the paint through. I love how vibrant the dots become.

The photo btw shows my grand-aunt with I think some friends…I found this photo when I was moving her apartment and it made me laugh hard. I hope I can trigger her memory on the story behind this :)

It is a fun stencil to tie elements together :) and I hope you like it

    That stencil is a simple design with so many possibilities.

    Great stencil, Nat! I like that the holes are bigger than dots and more irregular. I can see myself using this a Loy, Love what you did with it in your page
