Creative Jump Start 2020!

Almost a year ago my little family’s life changed when my husband lost his job. We are so thankful that it didn’t take long to find a new job, but this left us needing to sell our house, move, find a new house, and well, a stressful year with not much art as I packed our entire house and my studio almost alone. (My husband had to work in our new city during the week and came to “visit” me on the weekends.)

Due to this, I really fell out of the momentum of creating art. I knew I needed something to pull me back into my new studio…and am so thankful for this opportunity from Nathalie as one of her Creative Squad members.

I’m excited to announce that I’ll be playing along with Creative JumpStart (CJS) 2020, run for the 9th year by Nathalie Kalbach.

If you’re not familiar with CJS, it’s a one-of-a-kind online workshop to kick your creativity into high gear in January 2020. Learn techniques, discover new materials, and connect with other artists and crafters. Throughout January participants get access to 31 downloadable videos from 31 featured artists, called “JumpStarters.” See for yourself:

Head on over to Nathalie’s site to sign up and for more details.

You get 31 videos – over 5 hours worth of video content –  for just $40 USD if you sign up by December 2nd, 2019 11:59 pm EST.

Afterwards it will be $45 USD until December 6th, 2019, and $50 USD until December 31st 2019, before it goes to its normal sale price of $60 USD on January 1st 2020.

I’m Your Biggest Fan – N*Studio Creative Squad – October 2019

So excited for my first tutorial for Nat’s Creative Squad! Hop over to Nathalie’s blog for a written tutorial including my inspiration behind this journal spread and a supply list.

Can you guess what my inspiration was and how I applied it to this month’s theme? If you have any guesses (don’t peek!) post them below in the comments. I’d love to know if you figured it out.

And, watch how I created the page!

Nat’s Creative Squad

I’m so excited to announce that I am one of the two new members in Nat’s Creative Squad! Hop over to Nathalie Kalbach’s blog to read about the team and meet the other members.

Nathalie has a diverse line of rubber stamps, stencils, and foam stamps. I am looking forward to experimenting with them and incorporating them into my art journals and other projects. While you are on her page, visit her store and browse all her unique designs (and maybe even buy a couple!).
