Yes, hold your horses, I did a Scrapbooking Page ! And it was fun!
I used my new Stampendous Mark Maker Stampset and did some monoprinting on white paper using the stamps and acrylic paints.
I free handedly cut out little circles and applied them to the Cardstock.
I used a Bamboo Sketching Pen and Acrylic ink to write the title on the very same paper and then I just cut that out to and applied it with some foam pads onto the layout.
I used a Journaling Pen to scribble around the circles and do the journal.
Very easy peasy layout. Here is a video by Scrap Time which they made of me at CHA. Thank you – you rock and you do a fab job covering CHA! – I am talking about the stamp sets and also show the layout in the video.
Why not doing a Scrapbooking Layout once in a while- right? The big talk at CHA was that Scrapbooking is dead. I don’t agree, I think it has just changed and is not a mega hobby trend anymore and everyone who is interested in it just has to adapt it to their own style. Just like every other crafts that go and come in waves- but it will be still something that people will do as a memory keeping hobby. I also like it because it is so adaptable with Mixed Media and Art Journaling. What do you think?
I am looking forward teaching 3 Workshops at My Hearts Fancy in Oklahoma City, March 27 -29, 2015.
MAKE YOUR MARK Monoprinting- Friday, MARCH 27- 4 PM to 8 PM
In this monoprinting class we will explore the possibilities of making your own personal mark in your artwork by creating wonderful prints with different tools, stamps, stencils and techniques. Learn how to create your own patterned paper, which can be later used in art journals, collages, mixed media canvas and all other kinds of paper art.
ARTVERGNUGEN- Art Journaling -SATURDAY, MARCH 28 – 10 AM to 5:30
(with lunch break)
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 it 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!
PLAY-TRANSFORM – Mixed Media Collage – SUNDAY, MARCH 29 – 10 AM to 5:30 PM
(with lunch break)
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. Create a whimsical or abstract focal point, depending on your taste.
Nat will share her fun and easy peasy collage techniques, talk a bit about composition and make a sticky business turn into a creative new passion for you.
