Happy Monday Artsy Friends! It’s Prompt day! Were you anxiously awaiting today as much as I was? This week was Karen’s choice and here is what she had to say about her pick:
“For this week’s #inspiby art journal challenge prompt, I chose Nathalie Keur of Enkay Design’s “Nat’s art journal tutorial 22nd December 2015.” This is a fun and creative art journal tutorial focusing on letting loose while you journal – something I have been working on lately.
What I really appreciate about Nathalie’s YouTube videos is that she always adds a bit advice such as color theory basics to explain why she chose her colors, tips on using the various mixed mediums, or just adding little notes and commentary on how her creative process works.
With summer in full swing, it’s nice to get in some creative art time, but I always seem to need a big mental plan and then feel a bit frustrated if it doesn’t go the way I thought it would, so with Nat’s video, maybe I can loosen up and just play a bit more than I usually do. I hope you enjoy this week’s inspirational video as well!”
Thank you, Karen, for choosing this week’s prompt and I just know it’s going to be an awesome week! I’m already feeling inspired! As with every challenge, you can choose to recreate Nat’s layout, or just use it as inspiration when creating your own journal art page.
**If you do recreate this layout, please be sure to give Nat credit.
Be sure to check out Nathalie on:
And of course, don’t forget to ‘Like’ her video and subscribe to her YouTube channel.
