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.

    Thank you for sharing this Nat, I tend to think too much about what I’m doing and my “art” suffers for it. I am so controlled at times that I really need to “let go” more. Watching videos like this one are a good reminder for me. Have a terrific week!

We did a FB Live Stream right from the store on my Facebook Page of some fun techniques – you can see the store, some wonderful people and the store in action if you want 🙂 It was a lot of fun and thank you to all that came, the people who watched the video and joined and Anna and Jane from the InkPad!!!

    Thanks, Natalie, for the great demos! Just what I needed, a refresher lesson on using my gelli plate. I will definitely have to visit that NY store!

Creative Ice Breaker – Morning Art Journal Play Video IV

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.
