Transform Your Tape Giveaway!

Video showing how to use various tapes to make a colorful element for a canvas, art journal and more with Carolyn Dube

I had, notice I said had, a whole drawer full of washi tapes that I hadn’t been using.  I loved them when I bought them but they just sat in the drawer.  Until I started transforming them with color and pattern.  Suddenly they started being used.  That is the seed that led to my latest workshop, Transform Your Tape!  Not only washi tape, but also packing tape, and artist tape will be transformed!

It’s on sale until class begins- just $30 for over 2 hours of video! You can find all the Transform Your Tape details here!

Now that I have  bright, fun and playful tapes I am ready to use them!

I started with a piece of cardboard covered in all sorts of tapes which were made using the techniques in Transform Your Tape.

Thanks to my die cutting machine, these shapes were easy to make!  Both dies are from Sizzix  (branch with leaves and arch frame).

The canvas wasvcovered in paint and ink.

The paint on this art journal page came from stamping off a butterfly rubber stamp as I used it to create a subtle effect on the canvas.   I know, me subtle!

The lines of color on the chipboard letters? That’s Inka Gold by Viva Decor with the Mini Lines Stencil by Mary Beth Shaw over at StencilGirl Products!  I love the look of the metallic with such fine lines!

Here’s the final canvas!  It might not be sunny outside today but I have a bright rainbow of color here!  Hope your day is full of color too!

    Loved the Use Your Words workshop and would be delighted to win a place to transform my tape 🙂

  • melanie September 5, 2013, 10:51 pm

    I love what you did with the hand-made tapes – the die-cut tree is incredible. I love the idea of washi tape and own a few dozen, but never seem to remember to use them. Maybe if I made my own tapes …

  • Raine September 5, 2013, 11:12 pm

    Awesome video! I LOVE pink and orange together. One of my favorite combos!

  • Raine September 5, 2013, 11:18 pm

    I put this on my facebook page, too!

  • Marji September 6, 2013, 12:31 am

    I’m beginning to feel like I’ve been left behind- I have no tape, no tape to transform – but I really wish I did, because you work such magic with it!! I always love what you do and find such inspiration here – thanks Carolyn!

  • Ginigin September 6, 2013, 12:49 am

    I’d love a chance to win a spot in your class. Looks exciting and I have plenty washi. No die cutter but can figure something else out. Thanks!

    • Carolyn September 6, 2013, 8:17 am

      You don’t need a die cutter at all! In the workshop I show all the techniques for altering and transforming the tapes- what I am showing on the blog are some of the ways I use the tapes because now I am actually using them instead of just collecting them LOL. You could just as easily cut with a scissors as use a die cut machine.

  • Suzanne September 6, 2013, 12:50 am

    Hi Carolyn, this canvas is stunning! I so love it. Love the idea with the stripes on the letters, makes them almost dimensional. And the tapes, of course, the tapes look eye popping 🙂 The workshop seems promising and I love the humor you add to everything you do. Shared this on FB. Thank you so much for the chance to win.

  • Kay (Florida) September 6, 2013, 6:40 am

  • Beverley September 6, 2013, 6:44 am

    I’ve a pile of washi tape, which I simply had to have, of course haven’t used… sounds like a good plan to transform. Love your videos.

  • Melissa September 6, 2013, 4:18 pm

    I love this idea. I have some cloth medical tape I think would be awesome to transform from basic white to lovely washi tape

  • Renee Gaillardetz September 6, 2013, 4:22 pm

    I love washi tape and I too have a drawerful. I rarely find a way to use it other than by putting a strip on a journal page. Not very exciting. I am anxious to see your ideas. Thanks

  • Gillian Pearce September 6, 2013, 4:31 pm

    I love the way adding colours makes so much difference to the washi tape. Will definitely have a go at making paper with the tape and then cutting out a stencil shape. I love the effect.

  • Evelyn R. September 6, 2013, 5:13 pm

    Thanks for sharing your projects. Love the way you present your creative ideas. You have so many great creations and a wondrous way with color. I’m always hoping some of your inspiration transfers over to me. I’ve made lots of gel plate papers, but most of them are in a file drawer of stacked on my desk. Just can’t seem to add more color or designs to them, or cut them apart and use them on something else. I keep hoping for the right moment to use them. I know if I wait too long, they will be tossed by my descendants in the recycle bin, so better get busy. I received some medical tape recently and will try to make Washi tape out of it. I did a similar thing by cutting up old greeting cards and using them on new cards, but didn’t try die cutting them. Will try that soon. Thanks for the great ideas.

  • Alyce September 6, 2013, 5:18 pm

    Always good to learn a new way to use things we already have. Looks interesting and fun!

    Hello! I loved the video! Thanks so much! I’ve been collecting and using washi tape in my art quite a bit since I was introduced to it. I’ve even stamped on it, colored it, but I would love learning new ways of creating with it. Your videos always seem to set my muse into action, I am looking forward to the class. And I am gonna share on FB, twitter, and P. Good wishes come in bright colors!

  • Marjie Kemper September 7, 2013, 11:29 am

    Fabulous! Love how you’re using things in your stash, especially with all those tapes. I had to laugh at your comment about “maybe 2 months” – I didn’t think that was bad at all as I’ve been finding things around here I meant to use “maybe 2 years” ago.

  • lizzie September 7, 2013, 12:08 pm

I am creatively blocked right now but I am going to keep watching your awesome videos…they make me feel there is light at the end of this tunnel I am in. Wish I could afford to take your class but things are tight right now. Maybe I’ll win that spot!! Thanks for offering a chance to win and thanks for sharing your art!

    I just discovered you and your beautiful work through a Stencil Girl newsletter that I recently subscribed to. Love your video using washi tape and die cuts, and the way you used those pieces to create your canvas. I never would have thought of that. I love the bright colors too, and find that I tend to gravitate toward those myself! Can’t wait to see more of your work and have subscribed to your blog and your You Tube channel. I’m lovin’ it! Thanks for the chance to win a spot in your “Transform Your Tape” workshop. I would love to be able to make my own beautiful tapes.

    I love your negative die cut…..that would look awesome on a card.. I would never have thought to use Washi tapes like this with card board. I am on a craft spending “budget”, lo or I would have signed up for this workshop. Because I’ve taken your free Use your Words wksp and loved it. Your style of teaching is great, easy to follow and you really cover any questions that may pop up. Thanks for a chance to win. And again, awesome art journal page.

    I would love to win a spot in the transform your tape class. Just discovered your website; love your art!

  • Sharon Johnsonr September 12, 2013, 4:02 pm

    Winning the “transform your tape” class would certainly be an early Christmas Present. I am a total newbie to art journals and the gelli plate. I drove all the way to Blick’s in Pasadena from Banning CA to get mine and am in love with just the fun of it. Not much “art” yet but love, love, love the thing. And I am so glad I found you, Carolyn. You are a continual source of fun and inspiration!

  • Cheryl September 12, 2013, 6:47 pm

    Carolyn…thanks for all your great ideas. You are incredibly creative and talented. I loved your gelli print workshop and made some really fun pages. Your inspiration and enthusiasm always make me anxious to keep at it and make more art. Thank you for that! I would like to take your washi tape workshop but am recently unemployed and the budget is tight. No worries though. I’m just really thankful that I have a pretty well stocked studio and will continue to follow your blog to pick up all your great tips and tricks.

  • Bonnie Kurz September 12, 2013, 6:51 pm

    What’s not to love when it comes to washi tape. But would never think to die cut a sheet of them. Thanks for the idea!

  • Shari y September 13, 2013, 4:51 am

    Love what you did with the tape sheet and want to learn how. I really like your style and am currently am enjoying the gelli plate video workshop.

    Thanks for sharing with us.

    I also really like the elephant. I rode one once it was great

  • Mary Anne September 13, 2013, 5:55 am

    Might as well, although I am RUBBISH at following thru on online classes 🙂 This one, I just might see thru as I too have a drawer of Washi tape I’m not using to it’s fullest.
