Nathalie Kalbach’s Jump Start #11


WOW- it is the last day of Videos at Creative JumpStart 2013 -can you believe it?

so here is part 11 and the last part of my Creative JumpStart Über*Media Online Workshop


My Über*Media Online Classes are there to free your creativity with techniques and how-to’s that go beyond one certain project. I want you to learn something new that you can adapt to your own style and can use for many projects to come.

Über*Media classes are dedicated to different kinds of media that cross a variety of materials.

I do have several Über*Media Workshops available right now for example Über*Media -PanPastel, -Acrylic Paint, -Gesso, -Acrylic Ink and -FoamStamplifier.

For my Creative JumpStart Über*Media Workshop I will show you some of my favorite Über*Media Techniques that you can use in your Mixed Media, Scrapbooking, Altered Art and/or ArtJournal Projects.

So here is the video Number 11:

    You used the word “amazing” Nathalie, in your closing comments to all of us, and I must reiterate that word – AMAZING – that you put all of this together and coordinated it all so beautifully. Creative Jumpstart is the perfect term for this offering of talent and demonstrations of all the varied techniques. A big Thank You, and thanks to all the artists and companies who participated. So happy we have the next 6 months to absorb and revisit the inspiring videos. Can’t wait to see what you come up with in 2014!

I have so loved all the videos and shared knowlege through this and want to say thanx for putting this together!!! I’ll be here next year too!!!

  25. Carolyn Dewey says:

    Thank you for all the wonderful inspiration. I have learned more from Creative Jumpstart than from many online classes I have paid for. I committed to myself to actually try as many of the techniques as possible and only skipped 2 or 3 that were totally product dependent. Some of the techniques were outside my comfort zone – but not any more! Many thanks to you for all your hard work and for sharing your classes, and to the other teacher/artists as well. For me this has truly been a Creative Jumpstart!

  26. I have learned so much..ty..ty..ty

  27. Nathalie, Thank you so much for having the Creative Jumpstart! This was my first year and I really enjoyed it. It was great learning techniques from you and all the other artists. It was very inspiring and every video made me want to go create. Thank you again for putting this together!

Hurrah - you make me happy by leaving a comment! <3 Nat
