Lindy’s Stamp Gang Guest Design Projects

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Journal

In September I was a featured guest designer for Lindy’s Stamp Gang – and here are the samples I made using the Lindy’s Stamp Gang Spray Inks for their blog.

My favorite way to use Lindy’s Stamp Gang Spray Inks is in conjunction with Liquitex Acrylic Paints. I just love how the two working together make the colors pop.

I used some acrylic paint colors with some of my StencilGirl Products designs for a background.

Once dried I sprayed the different colors of the Under The Boardwalk Set over it and blended the colors using a paper towel.

For the finish I wrote some journaling and stenciled a bit more on top using Lindy’s Stamp Gang Spray Inks but also some acrylic paint.
One of my favorite features about Lindy’s Sprays is that they are permanent once dried and that you can actually spread some gesso or other paint media on top of the colored surface without deactivating the spray ink.

 I also love to use my Stampendous Stamps and templates with acrylic paint and start layering those up on the surface.

For Be Contagious I used some of the templates in my stamp sets with acrylic paint and then sprayed with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Spray Inks over it-

I love how it makes the background pop.

 In my Color Art Journal Spread I went a bit crazy- you can tell I love colors.

 I alternated acrylic paints and Lindy’s Spray Inks with my Stampendous Stamps and Templates.

I love how I was able to use so many different colors and it didn’t turn muddy.

NOT a Battle … or In My Art Journal Today

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Journal

Creating art is an argument with the attempt to work it out, not with the attempt to battle. (smarty pants Nat)

This is my view on creating art and using art media  .

Lot’s of soft color layering and stamping -Journaling written with Bamboo Sketching Pen and Acrylic Ink.  I like how this turned out.

here is what I used:

Believe in Yourself … or In My Art Journal Today

The one thing that gets in the way once in a while- I think we all have a good fair to deal with this :) If not- kudos to you – LOL

Lot’s of texture with Gesso on the background – then scraped lightly some Soft Body Acrylic Paint over it to have white peek through and also to reveal the texture more. Stamped and Stenciled with Soft Body Paints and then played a bit with markers :) Fun – easy and a good way to have a short creative session on an otherwise busy computer day . Not all projects you do need to be super elaborate – allow yourself to just play for a couple minutes.

Here is what I used

Have an amazing day today!

    Nat, did you use real Scrabble tiles? It’s hard to tell on this pic.

      Hi Sue, no those are actually out of a magazine- but you could def use real ones from an old discarded game for other projects. I fear they would be a bit to thick in dimension for an art journal.
