Food for the soul, fun for the hands

Yesterday I participated in a workshop day with Nathalie Kalbach, a very talented mixed media artist and
scrapbooker from Germany
Every few months my friend Alice, who owns a store in Israel, organizes a workshop day or weekend for all of us scrapbook fans. This time we had the pleasure of working with Nathalie, and make great projects. Usually I am busy with deadlines, projects that need to be delivered and other peoples' scrapbooks. Days like this give me an opportunity to do something for myself, or as I call it: food for the soul and fun for the hands

The first project was a mini album. We made it from corrugated cardboard and canvas pages. We had fun with materials like Tattered Angels' Glimmer mist, Glimmer Glam, Chalkboard, masks and stamps and we used Prima papers
Nathalie's example was horizontal. I decided I want my album to be vertical (always have to be different…). The theme of my album was: "YOU ARE", all the pages in it have a line describing my two boys. Each line opens with the words: you are

Our next project was a canvas. I was very happy that this canvas was about us. A lot of my designs are about my kids, but this one was about me: "Einat's Wonder Land". We made a whimsical, a bit crazy, colorful canvas featuring us in our wonder land. We used Webster patterned papers and Prima flowers, embellishments and canvas letters. It has a lot of atmosphere, dimension, colors and bling. a true wonder land


  1. העבודות שלך יצאו נפלאות במיוחד אני אוהבת את הקנווס שלך. אני בשלבי סיום אחרונים של הקנוואס שלי ובטח תוך שעה הוא יהיה כבר בבלוג שלי, את מוזמנת

  2. עינת, האלבום שלך נהדר
    אני אוהבת את הרעיון של ההמשכיות שכל דף מתחיל עם אותו המסר ואוהבת את העובדה שיצרת אותו אנכי, זה הולם אותו.
    מדהים איך שהצלחת ליצור משהו מקסים מאוסף חומרים שאני לא כל כך מתחברת אליכם
