Stay Out Of The Drama or … In My Art Journal Today

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Journal

Some great words to live by.

Natkalbach_OutofDrama02

This art journal spread is one of my faves I did the past couple months – and funny enough it was one of those pages where I was just trying out my new stamps and stencils some other new stuff , and I was using up left over paints and boom – as I was layering and layering I started to really love the grunge and then I dived full force into it and embraced it.

I used some left over Liquitex Super Heavy Gesso from a different project and spread it over the  Stencil in my Kaffee Klatsch Stamp Set to tie the background together.

Here are the supplies I used

Have a beautiful day :)

    Nice texture and colors. I am “behind” on CJS since I’m waiting for the speakers for our new computer to be hooked up. I’m looking forward to catching up!

    I love all of the layers and the colors you chose. You are one of the few that can load a page up with that many colors and designs and keep it cohesive, clear and so artistic. Great job!!

Light or… In my Art Journal Today (or yesterday ;) )

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Journal

Instead of a New Year’s Resolution I, amongst many others, pick a word that I try to live by in the new year. Last year it was BOLD …this year it is LIGHT …next year it might be ITALIC… just kidding ;)

NatKalbach_Light

Light is indeed my word for this year. It is a good word for many different kinds of lights that I would like in my life. I want to take thinks more lightly, travel light, be light and not overthink everything too much, eat light, and …see the light at the end of the tunnel :) Let’s see where this goes!

NatKalbach_Light2

Light is also the page spread in my art journal itself and the time I spent on it. I created it very quick on December 31, 2014 – after contemplating with myself, that I a) have no time because I had to work on last minute stuff for Creative JumpStart  and b) that I have no time because I should really make myself representable for a little party I was going to. Well…Light helped- little bit of acrylic inks with a brush – little bit playing, little bit of acrylic paint on a stamp …and voila- done. And aren’t I glad I did it…it is in there…in the journal- as a good reminder until I fill the book- LOL.

What is your word if you have one?

    Mine is “rhythm.” It came to me while listening to Tam’s meditation on day 1, as in a need to pay attention to the natural rhythms and flow of everything this year.

    Mine is ‘grow’ as in expand my mind, learn new things. Reach and stretch myself out to share with others.

    I have never “taken on a word” in this manner before but going to try it out this year so mine is ” reframe” . :)

    Powerful work of art. Our work reflects our thoughts, our environment. This is where our inspiration comes from and rightly should. What you have created reflects the dilemma in Jersey City, as in many cities within this country………
