I had such a great time with my Mixed Media Workshops at Everything Scrapbook and Stamps in Florida. Thanks to Michelle for bringing me back and being such a great host :) Here are some pictures of the three days I taught there:


Friday I taught a Mono printing Class – lot’s of fun and texture and I loved seeing my stencils and stamps being used so much :)




and we used loads of Liquitex Acrylic Paints.



And everyone was hands on :)




In between I learned that this is the only snow you can get in Florida ….sounded good to me with the arctic weather back home and comfy 86F at Lake Worth :)



Saturday I taught my Artvergnugen art journal class. My nifty students had practiced how to say Artvergnugen and were even able to show me :) Made me laugh big time!


We had an awesome day playing with paint and creating layers upon layers in our art journals








Sunday I taught a Collage Class- and I loved loved loved all the different results- it was loads of fun !







Thank you to all my amazing students for coming, being so amazingly creative and making me laugh! Until next time :)

Have a gorgeous day

21 Secrets is now on sale

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Journal, Workshops

I’m so pleased to be a part of a wonderful online art journaling workshop called “21 Secrets” starting in April 2015

Spring 2015 small

21 SECRETS teachers create workshops that beautifully reflect who they are as an artist right here and now. The mission behind 21 SECRETS is to showcase a variety of approaches, techniques, and ways of integrating art journaling and creativity into one’s life. With both an open heart and an open art journal, together we as teachers provide our members the space, permission, and inspiration to navigate those unexplored territories within their own hearts that are longing to be fully expressed.

The 21 Secrets Spring Art Journaling Workshop is downloadable.




What I teach? The Story Within a Story 

For me art journaling is visual story telling. It might not be a story that everyone can read but I can read it and that is all that counts. All my stories consist of many viewpoints and layers – thoughts, emotions and the story itself. I love to express the complexity of a story by building up layers and dimension through various techniques and texture.

In this workshop I would like to walk with you through my art journaling process. I will show you various layering techniques and I will tell you why and how I am doing what I am doing.

Join me in telling a creative story within a story.

21 SECRETS Spring 2015 Round

Some of the other teachers include: Eric Scott & Davd Modler – the Journal Fodder Junkies, Juliette Crane, Steve Salik, Jessica Leigh Brogan, Joyce van der Lely, You can read all about my class and the twenty other classes here

How much does it cost?

Right now the PRESALE is happening !


Note: The link that I am using to promote 21 SECRETS is an affiliate link and I will receive a small percentage of any student who registers through my link. If you want to register, and want to support me as an artist it would be wonderful if you would consider registering through my link .

Join me in Florida, Lake Worth for Mixed Media Workshops

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Mixed Media Workshop

There are a couple seats still open for my Mixed Media Workshops at Everything Scrapbook & Stamps November 14-16, 2014 in Lake Worth, Florida. Come and join me :)

Friday 14, 2014 – Texture Journal – 6-9pm


Create wonderful texture pages with mono printing, stenciling and stamping techniques, encrust them with different Embossing Media and bind them together in a beautiful tactile art journal.

Saturday 15, 2014 – Artvergnugen – Art Journaling Class – 10.30am – 4.30 pm 


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


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.


We will play with loads of fun acrylics, techniques and ideas in those workshops – don’t miss it .

Have a gorgeous day
