Beyond the Paper Live – Webinar April 1

Join us for a pre-workshop chat! We’re having a Beyond the Paper Live webinar on April 1st at 12noon EDT (NYC time). Register here to attend!

Birgit Koopsen, Marsha Valk, and I have released a new online workshop that begins April 4 and it’s all about exploring mixed media surfaces.

Before the workshop kicks off, the Beyond the Paper Live webinar will let us chat a bit more about why we designed this workshop, what techniques and supplies we’re using, and then it will also give us a chance to take some audience questions too.

This webinar is open to all, register HERE today!

Cardboard, Dura-Lar, Fabric, and more will be the foundation of our creations and we’ll discuss how to make the most out of these unique surfaces with techniques including foam stamping, printmaking, collage, stitching, and image transfers to name a few. To wrap things up, each teacher will bring some pages to completion and then show you a binding technique for pulling it all together. Learn more and register here.

The goal of Beyond the Paper is to inspire interesting, new ways to think about mixed media and to learn from the perspective and artistry of three different teachers. Also a special NEW foam stamp set, Triple Play will be used in the lessons and is newly released TODAY – for more on that, keep reading :)

NEW ArtFoamies set – Triple Play!!!

I’m also excited to announce the new Triple Play foam stamp set!!! Birgit, Marsha, and I designed this 7 piece ArtFoamies set to be used alongside the Beyond the Paper workshop, but of course this versatile set is perfect for any of your mixed media activities :)

Each of us designed two of the triangle stamps that fit nicely inside the hex border. Can you guess who designed what? I’m sure some of you may recognize our signature style.

For a while I have been obsessed with creating patterns with stamps (remember April Patterns?) and this set really allows you to explore that like crazy. You can use just one triangle to make all kinds of designs within the hex…

Or try combining two of the triangles for a cool field of pattern…

And how about layering it up a bit?

And then just look what happens when you really pull out all the stops?

I hope you join us for Beyond the Paper, with your Triple Play foam stamps in hand! I always love teaching with Birgit and Marsha and this time we all bring so many different ideas to the table that I know everyone will be inspired to think waaaaaay Beyond the Paper!

    Art Journaling protects my health and well being. I can collage all the bits and pieces that identify all my wishes and hopes or accomplishments in my world. Sometimes it clicks other times I don’t feel it hits my mark but I keep on trying to sooth my need to express and create what makes me at peace and complete. I have a relationship with all the other creatives I’ve met along my journey. I know that some day I will do a spread that will be the calling card to all my dreams come true…and that is a satisfying notion indeed. Thanks Nat…MBS…Mary Nassar…Pam Carriker…Seth…June…Robin and Jackie Jimerson (get well soon)…Love You Guys So Much!!!

    What I love about art journaling is that it doesn’t need to be presentable.
    When I scrapbook I want the LO to look really good.
    When I art journal it’s for me…the process and playing in my book.
    Thanks for the chance to win a spot Nat!
