Atmen, Atmen – Jeden Tag Atmen or…new canvas

Breathing, Breathing, Everyday Breathing would be kind of the translation 😉

It is a bigger Canvas – 50 cm x 60 cm – 20 inches by 24 inches. I had lots of fun incorporating a street art paste up which is in my neighborhood forever – love the guy and the saying. Also love the texture on it- which is hard to photograph on such big scale- so here are some close-ups.

it is pretty dimensional

Initially I did this for my Hamburgendsie Exhibition but I am not really sure if I want to include it. I have to let this sit a while and maybe go back to it to decide.

Meanwhile I keep on breathing- LOL

Have a wonderful day

Stencil Test Drive Cascading Leaves or…Forget Perfection

Jessica Sporn asked me  and some other artists to be part of her Stencil Test Drive featuring her amazing new stencils for Stencil Girl Products.

Today along with some others I will show you the use of the Cascading Leaves Stencil. I love this stencil. You can either use it as it is in whole or use little parts of it here and there or even make a frame.

In my art journal spread I used it for the background several times layered up with acrylic spray paints and I loved how beautifully the stencil created a deep dimensional feel. I touched it up with some letterpress images, oil based inks and markers. Then I used the stencil for framing the spread.

My Circuit Stencil

Circuit Stencil S161

I love it so much- you can use it for so many different projects and with so many different media. I will show you more coming up. Here is an art journal page I created with it

NathalieKalbach_CircuitStencil01

I wanted to have a stencil that you can use like a frame but where you can also use different parts of the stencils to highlight and add interest to your backgrounds. I am a bit geeky- can you tell – LOL

NathalieKalbach_CircuitStencil02

I used the Circuit Stencil with Liquitex Professional Spray paints –  Liquitex Professional Spray Paint 12-oz, Quinacridone Magenta and Liquitex Professional Spray Paint 12-oz, Neutral Grey 3

I cannot wait to show you my other designs soon too 🙂 Thank you so much for letting me share 🙂

A Good Day or…Spring Texture Canvas

EasterCanvas_NatKalbach02

 

It was time to get some spring feeling into the house. Outside a constant freezing cold breeze alternating with snow flakes make it hard to believe that I am on track with the right date. I might have missed something…probably spring was just postponed this year 😉

I had a lot of fun playing around with some stuff I had at hands though…so that made up for the weather.

A different kind of texture…making me happy..I am just a dork when it comes to texture- LOL
