Creative Ice Breaker – Morning Art Journal Play

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Creative Ice Breaker, Inspirational Video

IceBreaker1

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 – and hope you enjoy it. Take it as what it is – a morning art journal play- not a tutorial ๐Ÿ™‚

    What a delightful way to have my breakfast.
    Nice music and some inspiration.
    I find it very helpful to watch someone else’s art journaling to get ideas.
    Have a creative day Nat!

    Nathalie, love your morning sharing. Plenty of aha moments – like no need to ink stencil just use baby wipes. I know this but tend to forget. And I love owning Urban scribble – I grew up in Manhattan so skyline is special. I didn’t realize that I can print detailed stamp on top of foam stamp – that it lines up. Realized this when I watched Frugal Crafter video using it to make a card. All good!!!

    I just loved this! Your talent for layering is wonderful…and I especially love it because I struggle with blue and green…this is so pretty! I need to learn to use those two colors more often. Thanks for the awesome share! xx Rae

      Rae – queen of colors and layering- thank you so much for your sweet words ๐Ÿ™‚ I cannot believe you struggle with blue and green – I live for these colors- LOL. But I know what you mean, we are often so tied in with our color choices it is hard to break out.

    What FAB way to start my day – with YOU Nat. This was so fun to watch and it turned out so neat. To me – you are the Queen of Skylines – so it was pure joy to watch you create this “cityscape” all over your pages. And then your sentiment just made me think of all the places around your city you have shared with us – thinking that you have walked all the streets that you just painted!!!!! Thanks bunches for starting my day and weekend with a huge smile. XXj.

    What a cool way to use stencils! I never have any success using stencils. I must be trying to use too much paint, because they never come out clean. Doh!

      Glad you liked it ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes, the problem is usually too much paint. That is why I like using a cosmetic sponge – I dab the paint on and dab the paint off- so that almost no paint is on the sponge – the less paint the crisper the stenciled image ๐Ÿ™‚

On My Mind Art Journal Flip Thru

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Journal, Inspirational Video

I finished this art journal filled with quotes and things on my mind in a very short period of time. I thought I would film a little flip thru it .

If you do not like the music, just mute it and play your own ๐Ÿ˜‰

I will show some of the pages in the next couple weeks in detail and also explain how I made them. Hope you like this little flip thru

Have a gorgeous day

    Nat, I did not like the flipthrough, I LOVED it!
    Watched while I had my morning cereal…perfect music for it.
    The “time” page and the “not trying to be perfect” page caught my eye a great deal. Thanks so much for sharing this with your fans.
