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

“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

Fiesta Girl Canvas

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Mixed Media

I created this canvas board with my new Stampendous Fiesta Stamp Set for the CHA Booth.

I first painted the background with different green shades. Then I stamped the background with different acrylic colors and the Fiesta stamps. Next, I masked off the background with the woman silhouette and used Parchment and a light mist of Black Liquitex Spray Paint over it.

I took some paint at some areas off again and then used Titanium White Spray Paint and an alphabet stencil moving over the whole canvas with the lady still masked off. The letters were applied in the end with Gel Medium.

Here are the supplies I used:

    This canvas is my favourite piece from cha. When I saw it, I went to the stampendous website to try and figure out what stencil you used. I love the women stencil and the stamps. Thank you for sharing your inspiring techniques for this canvas. In the future this stencil and stamps will be used in my art journals and cards. Thank you for sharing your creativity with all of us.
