I had a great time last weekend in Dallas teaching at the CREATE Mixed Media Retreat. I taught 3 classes: “It’s All About the Layers- Art Journal”, “Encrusted Shrubbery- Canvas” and “Texture Heaven-Art Journal”. We used loads of fun Liquitex goodies- thank you Liquitex for the wonderful goodies I was able to give away!

I also brought my new stencils – that I just released and it was so much fun to see them used for the first time- wohoo!!! And there was a lot of hands on paint moments :)

It was great to spend so much time with my students in the day classes- and we laughed a lot…especially about my wrong doings in using “Y’all” …I guess “You’s” is wrong in any event in Texas- LOL

It was also wonderful to see some of my fellow teachers and friends at the event- we had a lot of fun in our “Liberace-Hotel” (that’s an insider for everyone who was there and a little side note about the hotel interior ;) )

Thank you to all my students- you were awesome and fun and super creative! A special shout out to Bill – rock on man!!!

It starts the moment you sit down, an experience that is distinctly Art Journaling. A quick exhilaration, a sense of control, the art media’s surprising responsiveness as if they were simply an extension of you.

There is a word for this creative experience: Artvergnugen ! Artvergnugen is what makes your journal a piece of art.

Join Nathalie for a one-day workshop and play with different art media and supplies. Learn techniques, tips and tricks to take your art journaling further and turn it into Artvergnugen.

Sunday 16, 2014 – Play Transform: Mixed Media Collage – Noon- 6pm

NatKalbachCollages

In this one-day workshop Nathalie will share her favorite techniques to create background papers using paints, stencils, and stamps. Layered up it will turn into a fun Mixed Media Collage. Nat will share her fun and easy peasy collage techniques, talk a bit about composition and make a sticky business a creative new passion for you.

I will bring loads of fun goodies and we will play with heaps of fun art mediums and materials. I hope I will see you in Florida – I cannot wait :) we had a great time last time I was at Everything Scrapbook and Stamps in 2012.
