Creative Ice Breaker – Morning Art Journal Play Video III

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Art Journal, Creative Ice Breaker

In the mornings I play in my art journal to get myself into the creative groove and break the ice – so to speak- and get ready to paint. I recorded and fast forwarded my morning ritual for this video – and hope you enjoy it. Take it as what it is – a morning art journal play- not a tutorial 🙂

    how do you contain the spray on the Liquitex sprays? I must be doing something wrong. I love your use of the layered stencils and stamps….I’ve really grown to love the elephant set and use it a lot of the time.

      Hi Ruthie, I shake the bottle at least a minute before using it and make sure that the nozzle is free of spray. I usually have no problem with it, unless there is some dried in areas around the nozzle. Do you have that problem with all sprayers and caps? I also find that it is easier to control if you are a further away. If you are spraying very close you are spraying very forcefully to one spot but it will result in a big blot rather than a fine mist. I hope this helps a bit 🙂 Glad you hear you love the elephant set- share with me some time what you did with it 🙂

Photos of Art Journaling Live 3

Last week I went to Arlington, Texas to teach together with MaryBeth Shaw, Jodi Ohl and Gina Rossi Armfield an Art Journaling Live Class which was recorded and will be available as DVDs and Video Download at the end of November this year.

NatKalbachAJL3_05

I started with some Creative Icebreaker techniques and lot’s of visual and actual texture.

NatKalbachAJL3_06

And it was fun to see what the amazing students created in this 1 1/2 hour with me.

NatKalbachAJL3_07

All the while Aaron was being serious and filming everyone and everything 😉

NatKalbachAJL3_08

Here is Amy Jones, our wonderful producer and you can see Jeannine Stein the editor of Cloth Paper Scissors doing fun stuff with Jodi in the background.

NatKalbachAJL3_09

And here is Jodi showing off her hands to proof she painted

My favorite part of the day was that after I was done with my teaching, I got to play along in all the other classes and below you see what I did in Jodi’s fantastic class …I changed her awesome whimsical birds and fish up a bit and out came: Botox fish – I love them- they crack me up 🙂

NatKalbachAJL3_11

Here is a view of the classroom.

NatKalbachAJL3_12

And the amazing MaryBeth Shaw – so good to spend time with her too

NatKalbachAJL3_13

and take her amazing layering and stencil class

NatKalbachAJL3_14

I realize, I do not have a photo of Gina- grrr- but she was sitting right next to me

NatKalbachAJL3_15

and she taught a really really wonderful watercolor class which makes me want to do more with watercolors!!!

NatKalbachAJL3_16

And here we are – all four of us – relieved and happy that we made it- and super thankful for all the wonderful and talented students we spent time with on that day.

I will keep you updated on the DVD and Video Download but meanwhile you can check out the ones from last year and some others I did

    Enjoyed watching your video. Loved the way you made
    such a pretty, colorful background. Have never tried journaling – not
    so ‘artistic’ as you, but I do like doing mixed media on canvas. TFS.

    Wow what a great way to start your day kind of like stretching before your morning run. I really enjoyed your video it was very inspiring. I can’t seem to find my way into mix media. My style is to controlled and stay in the lines. I guess I just need to be brave and jump in. What do I have to lose right. OBTW you ARE the best, best colorer lol tfs!
