Attn: You are not the boss of me…I am the boss of me and my art

Hach …isn’t art journal an awesome way to get stuff out? I just told someone in an interview that art made me a calmer person and part of this is because I can let out a lot of things through my art :)

This page is actually a page that was a demo page in tow different classes and then I finished it up at home.

I so love the Liquitex Cadmium Orange Hue 2 – so vibrant. I scratched through some blots of spray paints with the bamboo sketching pen, which I had also used with black acrylic ink to outline the woman on the page. I also used a needle point canvas star with the spray paint- fun – love the pattern this creates – also when you flip the stencil later over.

Here is a supply list:

Hope you have fun creating today!!!

    Ahhh – orange is my fav. Would you believe I have always loved it. Forty-three years ago it was orange gingham for bridesmaid dresses – hehehehe!!! Have to get some of your hue 2 orange Nat! Great colors in this project. Your sentiment is so true. Seems I always have someone telling me how to see what I see – which is not what I see at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Great work. Have a super fine weekend. j.

Don’t be a Later …or In My Art Journal Today

Note to myself: Don’t be a later

I am such a huge procrastinator sometimes – for fear I might be failing big time. I am telling myself, I can do this later. In some parts of my life I am a huge later. Time to be a NOW ;) I used to be a NOW – LOL- and it lead to all good things ;)

The lettering for the NOW was done with some wood blocks and acrylic paint. Then I used Liquitex Markers inside to pop it up a bit and outlined the outside of the letters with a fineline applicator which I had filled with Liquitex Soft Body Paint and some drops of Liquitex Ink . Love the fine and dimensional effects you get this way. The woman’s face is a stamp I carved.

Here are the supplies I used for this spread

Have an amazing day!

    Now is good Nat – it spells WON – backwards!!! At to me… you are always a WINNER at everything you do. I like this pages because of there is lots of white so your incredibly artistic doodles show up so well. The colors are nice – clean – like a new beginning – no build up – open – free – ready for a NEW NOW! j.

Good Bye …. or In My Art Journal Today

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Journal

I had a good time creating this grungy art journal page.

I used a fluid writer pen filled with acrylic ink for some scribbles and journaling which at parts I converted into marks by using a painters knife brushing over it. A different way of hiding some journaling instead of painting over it. I like it- I think I will use it again ;)
