She’s got a video showing a fun way to use up every last drop of paint in the tube!

Guess what I did with my empty tubes of paint...I put water in them. Something simple that led to a whole lot of play.   This created a very very watery paint in the tubes which was just perfect for squirting, flinging, and dripping.  On a sunny afternoon I headed outside and made colorful splots [...]

Nothing to Sneeze at…

This art journal page is nothing to sneeze at...because I did all the sneezing last week which led me to use an entire box of tissues...which is where I grabbed that great piece of pattern that started the whole page.  I've got the entire process...well not the sneezing...in a video and guest post on Julie [...]

What happens when Carolyn Dube listens to happy 70’s music while art journaling?  Check out the video!

I was under the influence of the 70's while I made this art journal spread.  The music was blaring and my muse stopped by to spark my play by making this floral Gelli print® call to me from a stack of prints. If you've ever used a Gelli Plate®, you know how easy it is to [...]

Carolyn is sharing how she went step by step  from loving her art journal page to hating it and back again to loving it.

I loved it...then I hated it...my mood toward this art journal page was swinging from one extreme to another with each layer.   Wild extremes that happened in a second.  I love when this happens because it was such a fun ride my muse took me on today! It started with a layer I loved.  I [...]

Spin Art with the Groove Tool

It spun around so I thought the Groove Tool just might work for some easy spin art and I was right!  Check out the video how to do this!

Want to feel like a kid again?  Making spin art takes me right back to when I was a kid.  After getting a spin art machine, I would get paint all over the place as the machine whirled the paper around.  Guess that is why Mom always sent me outside to do it.  Hours were spent mesmerized by [...]

Fly to the Moon…with Wet Paint

I had a big problem. I was frozen and unable to decide where to start on a pristine white page in a brand new journal.  This is a recurring problem for me so I have learned all sorts of ways to deal with it. I'm sharing one of my go to ways in a video for my [...]

When I was invited to try out the Groove from Art-C for the blog hop with StencilGirl, I didn't know what to expect.  I must admit I was a bit skeptical and wondered if it was something for me.  Turns out, it is exactly the kind of thing I like to use.  It's easy to [...]

Art journaling is all about play for me.  No pressure. No demands.  Just play. This started with a random background that I actually began during my Stencil Play Workshop.  I have bits and pieces of leftovers collaged randomly on the pages.  They go together if you are willing to let your imagination stretch...     [...]
