Photos of the Workshops in Toronto, Canada

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Workshops

It was so much fun to be back for the fourth time at Bizzy B’s in Toronto. I taught an Altered Book Class and as full day classes “Acrylics Demystified” and “Raw Canvas Staining” – it was messy colorful fun!

If you want to take an in-person class with me- I am teaching at My Heart’s Fancy in Oklahoma City on March 27-29 serval classes, and at The Ink Pad in New York City on May 16 I will teach the Raw Canvas Staining Class (mega fun!) . I hope you will join in!

Have a wonderful day!

    Our precious grandchildren were here this week and we only see them once a year due to expense etc so I am behind leaving my comment this week! Having too much fun playing in a different way! Although two of them did do a journal page – woooo whoooo!!! BUT… just a note to tell you Nat that I just LOVED seeing all these pics from your workshops in Canada. WOW – it looks like everyone did some wonderful work and were having so much fun. Lots of smiling going on. You are so sweet to include so many pictures. I just looked and looked at them. So many different creations and colors and combinations. I know they all just loved having you there. Thank you so much for bringing it home to us! j.

Creative JumpStart Meetups in 3 Countries

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Creative JumpStart

CJS15MeetUp

This post just makes me so happy and giddy  :)

For Creative JumpStart I had joined together with some stores to organize official Creative JumpStart Meet-Ups. And how cool is that – stores from three different countries participated:  in the USA, Canada and The Netherlands. Everyone participating was a Jumper and had signed up for Creative JumpStart 2015 online and the stores provided materials and space to indulge in one of the projects or techniques shown in Creative JumpStart 2015 on a certain day. Here are some fun impressions from those CJS Meet Ups around the globe :)

Creative JumpStart Meet Ups (Jan+Feb) at Everything Scrapbook and Stamps in Florida, USA

CJSESSMeetUp

There will be actually a third Creative JumpStart MeetUp at Everything Scrapbook and Stamps on March 21st!

I think this is truly amazing that people around the world are being connected through an online event like Creative JumpStart, create together and even make new friends :) BTW- if you missed out on Creative JumpStart online…you can still sign up & read more about it here.

Wouldn’t it be awesome if there was some day some kind of huge CJS event worldwide ?  Like a tourbus with all 21 artists doing Mixed Media Retreats based on CJS – LOL- that is one crazy idea ;) Well…one can dream right? ;) Have an awesome weekend!

I Just Want to …. or In My Art Journal Today

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Journal

“I just want to spend the rest of my life laughing”

I painted the background of my art journal spread and then used various left overs from mono prints I had done on deli paper and watercolor paper. I collaged the papers onto my background with Matte Gel Medium. Especially the Deli Paper fuses nicely into the background and is an awesome paper to use for collage.

I used Markers for the image and the journaling and highlighted areas with the white Signo Pen. I actually liked working with a very light background and adding darker focal points to it- I often tend to work from dark to light … time to challenge myself to change that up a bit more often.

    I am so inspired by your style of painting. I love all the magazine figures and how they are evolving. I am a beginner learner and doing this style of artwork is really encouraging me to get creative. Thank-you for all your sharing.

    Just love your smile so… I want you to spend the rest of your life laughing too Nat. Laughing when your heart is aching is good medicine but it’s hard too. Love this layout! Thinking of you. j
