Woohoo! I’m excited to announce that I’ll be participating as a JumpStarter in Creative JumpStart (CJS) 2016, run for the 5th time by the awesome Nathalie Kalbach!

If you’re not familiar with CJS, it’s a one-of-a-kind online event to kick your creativity into high gear in January 2016.

Learn techniques, discover new materials, and connect with artists and crafters.

Throughout January participants get 25 downloadable videos from 24 featured artists. I’m honoured and happy to be one of those artists, called ‘JumpStarters’.

See for yourself:

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

So what are you waiting for? Start off 2016 with a Creative JumpStart!!!

Creative JumpStart Meet-up

Marsha Valk | Creative JumpStart Meet-up 2015

Yesterday a group of Dutch Creative JumpStart 2015 participants gathered together at REVLIE’s.

We started with a lunch and then went on to work on our individual Creative JumpStart projects. Birgit and I were there to show and tell and answer questions.

As you can see, we made a big huge mess… but it was so much fun! It was so cool to see everyone’s projects and to talk ‘mixed media/art journaling’ among other things!

Thank you so much Debbie, Anja, Sofia, Rob, Mirjam, Leonie and of course Birgit and Revlie for a great afternoon!!!
