Guest Designer...Nathalie Kalbach!!!

We are very fortunate to have the lovely and very talented Nathalie Kalbach from Germany guest designing for us! 

Nathalie is a Mixed Media Artist and Scrapbooker living with her American husband in the second biggest city of Germany, Hamburg. Living in the heart of the city in a neighborhood thriving with art & craft, she gets inspired by her urban surroundings. Nat loves to design, teach and write – doing all of it wholeheartedly. She has her own column with Somerset Memories (America) called “Nathalie’s Studio” and also writes for the German Scrapbooking Print Magazine “ScrapArtZine”.

Nat designs for several manufacturers – including Tattered Angels, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Punky Sprouts.

She is a certified Educator and most recently a Golden Ambassador for Tattered Angels. She teaches Creative Workshops in several different countries in Europe, Israel and in the United States as well as online for and soon in Australia.

Nathalie has been published in several magazines and idea books including Somerset Memories, Somerset Home, Scrapbook Trends, Simple Scrapbooking and ScrapArtZine. She just recently released her own Paper, Stamp and Transparency Line eMOTions with the French Manufacturer Sultane.

Nat has created three wonderful projects for us showing her versatile mixed media style that is fresh and funky and I love it! Here they are:


Project #1:  Bibbidi, using:
Natalie Frame Medium
Mini Antique Lower Case & Uppercase Alphas
For the frame, Nat has used Puffy Embossing Powder, then used Tattered Angels Stiletto Glimmer Glam and Rub'n'Buff.


Project #2:  Dream, using:
Flourish Birdcage small
Skeleton Leaves small
Word Trio - Believe Dream Laugh
For the Dream piece, Nat has used different Shades of Letraset Promarkers and also Rub'n'Buff.  The Birdcage, Butterflies and the Leaves have also had a once over with Rub'n'Buff.



Project #3: Happy, using:
Love Blooms large
12 " Overlay with 6x6 small window
CorreBoard Impact White Alphas

Nat embossed the small squares with different Embossing folders, then used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Glaze and Staz on on top. For the Overlay frame, Nat has used Tattered Angels Chalkboard and then used Candy Rosenberg's Stamps on top. The Love Blooms was painted with different shades of Glimmer Glaze. The CorreBoard Alphas were sprayed with two colors of Glimmer Mist.

I hope you have all enjoyed Nat's projects as much as we do.  Don't forget, Nathalie is coming to Sydney to teach, you can check out class details on Your Creative Journey.  You can also check out Nat’s Blog:
