Nathalie Kalbach Urban by Dee

Hi everyone I hope you are well. Today I have a piece
notebook made using a  Nathalie Kalbach stamp
and Tando mixed media boards/stencil.

I folded Card  x 4 and cut to fit then painted with Gesso followed by 
Deco art chalk paint, I set this aside to dry.

For the covers I used mixed media boards that I gave a coat of Gesso 
prior to putting black modelling paste through  the tire tread
stencil to both top left & bottom right of the front cover. 

I mixed primary magenta with tinting base and painted the entire
 2 media boards once dry a coat of weather wood again when dry 
a coat of crackle paint. I used the sequin waste stencil
 randomly put black modelling paste through.
I also gave the edges a scrap of paste.

Once dry I used a media interference in turquoise and gave a
coat over both boards. The urban stamp had been 
stamped onto stamping card and painted with watery washes 
of green and burnt umber then cut out 
and given a coat of mat medium.

Patina green followed by Black antiquing cream was used 
over both boards and knocked back once happy i affixed 
the urban skyline onto both boards and fixed in the pages.

INCREDIBLY Dee. This is my fav Nathalie stamp so I have seen it used lots of ways but I must say - this is by far one of most creations EVER from it. Wow wow - I just love the texture and colors. It just takes her stamp to an entirely different level. SUPER FINE! Xj.
