Back to School with Online Workshops

It’s that Back to School season where I think we’re all ready for new experiences, hungry for a challenge, and excited about learning. I always like to begin the fall with some nourishment for the mind and an Online Workshop is an easy way to jump into something that you know will be both fun AND good for the artistic side of the brain.

My Labor Day Sale is running now through Monday Sept 5th* and offers 20% off all my Online Workshops. Just use the coupon code laborday20 to save.

AND in addition to all the Online Workshops being on sale, I’m also offering a Last Chance Sale for CJS22 for just $59. I’m going to be taking a little break from this program for a while so it’ll also be your last chance to get a full CJS workshop for a while – better sign up ;)

Here is just a small selection of some of the workshops I’ve got going now – Artful Adventures, Best of CJS bundles, project workshops, and super cool ensemble cast workshops:

Be sure to check out the Online Workshop section of my shop – there are even more to choose from to inspire you and exercise your creative side this fall and beyond.

Last Chance: Jump with Creative JumpStart 2022

Jump with us! Creative Jumpstart 2022 is on sale now until Monday, September 5th*! 

Have you ever felt that tapping into your creative side is hard to do? Even if you love art making or crafting and/or do it for a living, getting in your creative zone can sometimes be a struggle. Mix in being a bit of a perfectionist, overthinking, time constraints, feeling unmotivated, and judging your work and/or comparing yourself to others, and artmaking can be such a trying thing! If you feel like I’m preaching to the choir, I have just the thing – Creative JumpStart.

Creative JumpStart was created for hobbyists and artists alike to learn from the best of the best and take action to build a creative habit.

By joining CJS, you’ll get to learn techniques from yours truly, as well as 37 other uber talented mixed media artists.

The workshop can be completed in about five weeks (if you are doing the lessons daily, as recommended) via 38 pre-recorded lessons. There’s technique and project based lessons, tons of tips and tricks from our artist teachers, and all the lessons are around 10 minutes in length and designed to help you make creating a doable, daily habit.

Are you in? 

Register for CJS22 between now and Monday, September 5th, for $59 (previously $79). This is your Last Chance to sign up for Creative JumpStart 2022 and also the last chance to enjoy the CJS extravaganza while we take a break from the programming for a year or so.

We’re nearing the end of one long, hot Summer around here and if you’re like me, you want to make the most of it… maybe inside with the AC on LOL.

Giveaway Time – Mixed Media Chips

It’s Giveaway Time! Get one of my Mixed Media Chips for FREE. These cute chipboard stencils are being discontinued so while supplies last, you can score one for free. How? Just spend $15 or more before shipping (and after any coupons are applied) in the online shop on physical products and we’ll pop one into your order. It’ll be randomly selected and a surprise for you :)

These are kind of a cross between a stencil and a collage element and I had fun using them in my art journal for backgrounds…

And for creating texture…

And finally as a bit of collage to emphasize certain motifs in a spread.

I also loved using them for cards in all three ways, creating some city-inspired ones that play with lots of tonal layering.

So until we run out, just spend $15 or more on an order here in the shop (physical products only, cart total before shipping and after coupons) and we will include one free Mixed Media Chip in your shipment.

And now is a great time to buy as we are currently having Nat’s Birthday Sale – 20% off all physical products using the coupon bdayfun20 when you check out. Hurry though, stamps and stencils are going fast and the sale ends 11:59pm EDT (NYC time) on July 6, 2022.

Party Time – Nat’s Birthday Sale

It’s that time of year again so I thought… let’s have a little birthday fun ;) To celebrate, I’m having a Birthday Sale here in the shop and you’re invited!

An early July birthday is pretty sweet anyway – warm sunny days, lots of grilling and stoop gatherings outside, the neighborhood is lush and green – and now that I’m here in the US they are celebrating their birthday too this time of year so I can expect parades and fireworks and other festivities!

So here at nStudio we’re letting loose with a sale on all our physical products in the shop: rubber stamps, stencils, foam stamps, my book, my fav supplies like Moonlight Duo ink pads and cardboard mini models, and even my artwork! Just use the coupon code bdayfun20 when you check out to save 20% on qualifying items. Sale runs through July 6, 2022 at 11:59pm EDT (NYC time).

Rubber stamps and stamp sets are included in the sale, so favorite sets like Hex Set Large and Stroll Through the Hood are good to go, as are many others in the newly restocked shop:

Are you a Stencil lover? They’re part of the sale too and whether you love patterns or more abstract motifs, we’ve got you covered with stencils like Van Vorst and Tokyo and others.

Foam Stamps are my go to for bold designs and I love using them in all sorts of ways and on a lot of different substrates – especially fabric. Recently we did a fun project with my Mini Fan Set and Koinobori fish wind socks and another time we created some gorgeous printed napkins with my Batik stamps. I love how foam stamps print on fabric :)

Do you love hanging artwork on your walls to inspire you and bring you joy? I certainly do – there is something about looking at artwork that gets my brain going. Well my friends, Artwork is a part of this sale too and there is something in there at every price range and in a lot of different media, including an original framed collage called Hope and a mixed media painting of NYC’s famed Highline.

All physical products include some of my favorite supplies like Moonlight Duo ink pads (those cool ones that have a color AND an opaque white so you can mix tints) and the mini cardboard models that are so fun to personalize.

Have fun shopping Nat’s Birthday Sale here in the online shop – just remember to use the coupon code bdayfun20 when you check out. It’ll run through 11:59pm EDT (NYC time) on Wednesday, July 6, 2022.
