Modeling Paste Art Lesson and Stencil Giveaway

Carolyn Dube's Art Lesson

Do you know about Art Lessons over at Interweave (the Cloth Paper Scissors people)?  Each month there is a new digital download and this month I am very excited to see my name on it. (Confession- excited is an understatement…)  This $1.99 digital download is all about stencils (shocker) and modeling paste.  You can find out all about my Art Lesson here.

And at long last I’ve taken the plunge and built a Facebook business page.  You can find it here.  I would love love love it if you’d like it.  Every like bribes my muse to come and visit me more often!



To celebrate this week I am giving away a stencil.



Which one? Seth Apter’s Numbers stencil for StencilGirl Products!   Just leave a comment and you’re entered! Want a 2nd chance? Like my new Facebook page and come back and let me know you did it (or already did it- you definitely get credit if you have already liked it)!  I’ll be randomly picking a winner on Saturday, Sept. 28th at midnight EST.




Transform Your Tape a worskshop by Carolyn Dube


My workshop, Transform Your Tape is live. Over 2 hours of video showing techniques to alter and transform washi tape, packing tape, and artist tape.  You can find all the details over at iCreateFlix.




Video tutorial on how to dress a doll in washi tape with Artysville's tape by Carolyn Dube


I was dressing my kewpie doll with washi tape yesterday on my blog for Artysville’s blog hop. She’s a bit of prankster this little doll…when I leave the studio she goes and hides in my supplies…







 There’s still time to get in on the 6 rolls of tape giveaway here! And these are some seriously beautiful tapes!








I’ve been getting around this week too- oh that doesn’t sound too good does it? I’ve got a Stencil FUNdamental with wood icing video over at StencilGirl Talk.




Watch The Tale of Goldilocks and Her Stencil Storage on YouTube.

I’ve been asked by many how I store my stencils (since I have a few).  So, with the help of Goldilocks I have a little tale for you today that explains it all…And  you can see how several of the creative team at StencilGirl store their stencils here .

If you are still reading you get a gold star because this is one long post!  Hope you have a fun and creative weekend!

Sharing this week’s artful adventures with my friends at  Paint Party Friday, Art Journal Everyday and Creative Everyday.

Like this post?  Love it if you’d share it!

Now I think I will do my stencils like you did so they are easy to see and grab to use. Thanks for the great organization idea! You got it going on girl! I also liked your Facebook page.

  • Bleubeard and Elizabeth September 21, 2013, 5:55 am

    It’s times like these I almost give in and join Facebook, then realize that would be stupid since I have enough on my plate at the moment. But I think it was probably wise you took the plunge.

    Thanks for the chance to win one of Seth’s stencils.

  • Janeen September 21, 2013, 5:55 am

    Liked your new business Facebook page. Great colors…love having another access to your work.

  • Dianne Thompson September 21, 2013, 6:53 am

    yep, liked your fb page, watched a couple of your videos too. Thanks for the chance to win the stencil. Great storage idea for them, no more struggling to get them to slide inside a sleeve that always catches a tiny piece of the stencil and bends it sideways grrrr. Now to find where I can get those clear plastic hooks

  • Lissa September 21, 2013, 8:16 am

    This stencil is on my wish list!! I never liked your page on FB but loved it!! Love all the stuff you do. You are a great inspiration for me!! Thanks!

  • Janelle Rourke September 21, 2013, 10:00 am

    Loved your video and a great idea for your stencils. I don’t have room for a clip it up, besides the cats would have a field day with it! lol The stencils I bought 6+ years ago, I have in a binder, and find I don’t think about them unless one of them pops in my head. All my new ones I have in a 12×12 plastic drawer, and while the drawer doesn’t always make it back with the others, I can get to the ones I need for now! Liked your new FB page. Love the header. I am really enjoying your blog and videos, and learned alot. Would love to win that stencil. It is really awesome, and so many possibilities of ways to use it. Thanks for a chance to win, and we all need your muse coming out to play!
