Winter Inspired Soul Play

Video tutorial of mixed media and stencil play inspired by icicles by Carolyn Dube

As a former elementary school teacher, snow days will always hold a special place in my heart.  Snow days meant unexpected artful days in the studio.   We didn’t get the snow today that the weatherman promised, okay, predicted…But I decided to take a snow day for play anyway with icicles on a canvas!

You can watch Soul Play with Paint and Stencils on YouTube here.
