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.

Saying hello to my friends at  Inspire Me Monday and Creative Every Day.

    Delightful video and painting, Carolyn!
    I think we got your snow!!
    We have a snow day tomorrow, and I agree…there is something magical about an art day with the bright white stuff coming down! 🙂

    No snow here, but we’re kinda glad! I hate shoveling that stuff!! 😉 I’d much rather watch you “make” snow–way more beautiful!! LOVE the riot of color on this one!

    Love today’s playtime. We have had tons of snow and toe curling cold. Nice to stay inside and just watch out the window.

    Great video and canvas, Carolyn. It gave me great joy to watch you playing–just playing for the pure joy of it! I love the term “soul play” as it conjure up yesterday’s memories. Brilliant! Totally brilliant!
