Using a gel plate to make a grid inspired by Matisse's cut outs tutorial by Carolyn Dube

 

Cut Outs Inspired by Matisse stencil designed by Carolyn Dube for StencilGirl Products

If I had a time machine, the one person I would love to spend an afternoon with is Henri Matisse.   My fascination with both his work and the man intensified after reading, Matisse the Master: A Life of Henri Matisse: The Conquest of Colour: 1909-1954  Every page I read mades me have more and more respect for the master of color and his not so easy journey.

The Cut Outs Inspired by Matisse stencil was inspired by how he handled a huge challenge.   Later in his life, Matisse could no longer paint or sculpt due to declining health but he found a new way to create – his paper  cut outs.  These cut outs of organic shapes of coral and seaweed are symbols of determination and a powerful creative spirit.

Stars Inspired by Matisse stencil designed by Carolyn Dube for StencilGirl Products

Stars Inspired by Matisse stencil designed by Carolyn Dube for StencilGirl Products
These stars,
like Henri Matisse, follow no one’s rules but their own! Each star has anywhere from five to nine points and a distinctly jaunty personality. Let their joyful, offbeat light shine in your play!

Once Upon a Time stencil by Carolyn Dube for StencilGirl Products

 

Once Upon a Time stencil designed by Carolyn Dube for StencilGirl ProductsIt’s no secret in my family that I want to live in a castle.  I’ve told my kids that the little one King Ludwig built in Germany, Neuschwanstein Castle, was maybe a bit too much for me.  Perhaps something smaller, but with ample towers.  Needless to say that hasn’t appeared under the Christmas tree yet, but I can now stencil all the fairy tale towers I want with the Once Upon a Time stencil.  It includes the 5 tower masks, the row of diminutive towers, and the tower stencil.

Fairy tales seem to have thorns and those tough situations that princesses and queens have to navigate.  This briar patch of interlocking thorns and branches is the perfect pattern for any project—it can be used to evoke images of enchanted forests, fences, tumbleweeds, and more.  The Trio of Thorns stencil includes a large and small version of the same pattern to give you lots of flexibility in your play.

How to make crayon rubbings with stencils on book text video tutorial by Carolyn Dube

Triangular Pathways stencil designed by Carolyn Dube for StencilGirl ProductsIf you look closely at this pattern, you can see large, rounded triangles connecting the smaller triangles. This shape is called the Reuleaux triangle, and it is the only shape other than a circle to have a constant width, and it can even be used as a drill bit to drill square holes! This strange, wonderful combination of circle, triangle, and square can be the perfect metaphor for the unpredictable paths we all find ourselves traveling.  The twists of life’s journey where you may be heading steadily down one path and then suddenly make a sharp turn into a new direction inspired the Triangular Pathways stencil.Cardmaking using gel prints and an alphabet stencil tutorial by Carolyn DubeRansom Alphabet stencil designed by Carolyn Dube for StencilGirl Products

An episode of The Streets of San Fransisco staring Michael Douglas and Karl Malden had a kidnapping and a ransom note made with letters cut out of the newspaper.  Apparently, that left a big impression on me, because ever since watching that rerun as a kid, I wanted to be a detective and solve the case of the cliched ransom note.

The hand drawn letters on the Ransom Alphabet stencil are wonderfully wonky to create playful words.

Arched Fountains stencil designed by Carolyn Dube for StencilGirl Products

Arched Fountains stencil designed by Carolyn Dube for StencilGirl ProductsArched Fountains was inspired by the glorious fountains of Versailles.  While doing the typical whirlwind tourist type things at Louis’ little cottage, I fantasized about spending an afternoon just enjoying the fountains  and soaking up the opulence of his time at Versailles.

 

You bet I have videos of the play with these stencils that I’ll be sharing starting tomorrow, so leave a comment, get entered to win, and stop back for the videos!

  • Audrey Fish Pfeifer January 25, 2017, 11:05 am

    What a “win” this would be! Stencils can “make” a mixed media piece so much more than what it would be without. The generosity of artists on Facebook and elsewhere is outstanding. Thanks for this opportunity.

  • Phyllis Y January 25, 2017, 11:06 am

    Oh my goodness, you have outdone yourself! Wonderful designs. Thanks for the opportunity! And thanks for always bringing color and joy to my days (it’s been so dark and gloomy in Iowa this winter, even without much snow, so I need your videos to keep me going). 🙂

    Just last week one of my granddaughters was over and we were drawing. She wanted me to draw a castle”…. I had a hard time because I do not know how to draw a castle. In fact I need some major drawing lessons. We continued to play and later got out some paint and stencils and did something totally different. I love having permission to play and always hope for more toys to play with!!! Carolyn you often make my day more fun. Thanks!!! Cheers

  • Betsy Ellis January 25, 2017, 11:51 am

    Hi Carolyn! Finding your site has been some kind of miracle. I have wanted SO BADLY to do mixed media for ages, but didn’t know where to start. The pages are made up of so many random parts that I was totally blocked from “getting it.” Then I found your Permission to Play series, and I started cutting up a cardboard box. (Strange look from hubby.) Even laying down the gesso was fun. And it had the exact effect you intended: no one piece is so “precious” that I am worried about what to with it. Don’t like it? Paint over it and go again! The freedom is amazing and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for getting me started on this journer. I can’t wait for the next video. p.s. I am sharing this page on Facebook.

  • Lisa Dobry January 25, 2017, 11:51 am

    Carolyn, I love, love, love the Once Upon a Time Towers. I had cut something like this out of paper awhile back as I wanted it in an art piece. Now I can have a stencil!!!! Congratulations on another 7 wonderful designs!

    What beautiful stencils! I particularly love the Matisse-inspired cutouts. Matisse is my favourite artists and his cutouts were a genius solution to his declining health. Thank you for opening the giveaway to International folks – it’s always disappointing to get excited about a giveaway and then find it doesn’t apply to those of us in faraway places like Australia!

    If I could spend a day with anyone it would be you Carolyn Dube. Just hearing your voice, your enthusiasm, the fact that you share your art instead of acting like some who seem to feel they hold the key to the art universe is refreshing and inspiring. Do I hope to win, sure. But my point in telling you this is not to win but rather to tell you you inspire me and make me believe I can make art. And, isn’t that the point?

    My imagination feeds my inspiration as well. I was always secretly jealous of people who could draw or paint. Mixed media gave me permission to use paint, drawing, color theory to make journal pages. A colorful play FB group really encourages me to use color always. I enjoyed your latest post.

  • LaShae January 26, 2017, 2:21 pm

    A conversation with Matisse would be amazing. I’d also love to talk to Edvard Munch.

    What a great give away! Thank you so much. I fell in love with the Matisse stencil the first time I set eyes on it. I love his cutouts. However, the trio of thorns comes as a very close second (I am an avid collector of fairy tale books). Needless to say – I simply love them all, since I a sort of a stencil addict, truth be told…..

    Love, Love, Love the towers stencil!! My second favorite is the alphabet stencil. Cutting letters out of magazines seems like too much work to me, but this stencil would help me get funky letters onto my page without the work of cutting, putting in order, pasting, etc. I love that you make it easy to play.

    Oh, Carolyn! I adore these! Must have. Better to win! About a month ago I found some oak leaves that reminder me of Matisse. I used the shapes to create a page in my journal. I even added a squirrel Matisse-style. See it here: http://possumpatty.blogspot.com/2016/12/how-to-nature-journal-like-henri-matisse.html Thanks!

    I can’t decide which one is my favorite! I really like the strange triangle, but also like the arched fountàins… I guess I like the idea of making them into coloring pages…

  • Helen Recane January 27, 2017, 6:42 pm

    Carolyn, I love all your new stencils. My favorite is Trio of Thorns. It reminds me of the small plastic pieces that we put inside of the large hole on 45 records, in order to play them on our turntables. Just gave away my age for sure.

    I love all of them but triangular pathways and the ransom alphabet just blow me away. Reuleaux triangles – who knew and so interesting. And, I, too read one of those ransom letter mysteries as a kid butI always aspired to getting a ransom note made out of letters cut out of the newspaper. (I hoped they’d kidnap my brother!)

  • Cynthia Tuttle January 27, 2017, 11:50 pm

    I really enjoy the work of Henri Matisse! I live in Minnesota, just north of Minneapolis, so I am very lucky to have the Minneapolis Institute of Arts within a half hour drive from me. I got to see a collection of Matisse’s amazing art in a larger scale show, plus they have a few pieces in their permanent collection. I am a Stencilgirl club member and I really enjoy my stencil surprise when it arrives in my mailbox each month.

  • sue berg January 27, 2017, 11:51 pm

    Sending hugs from me to you🤗

  • Jane January 28, 2017, 9:33 am

    I love how artists, even in their latter years, when they can no longer do what they once did, pick up a new medium or way to continue to create just as successfully or even more so! I love the Matisse example, but there are many others. Remember Grandma Moses could no longer do needlepoint and started painting at 80 years old! Awesome!

  • Christine Royal January 28, 2017, 9:33 am

  • Pam Weiler January 29, 2017, 1:48 pm

    I was trying to determine which one I liked best and why. Reading your reasons for creating each design was very informative and inspiring and helped me with my decision. Though it was not an easy one, as I like them all. But the arched foundations is my favorite, because I can see the water sprays of the fountains. I too have been to Versailles and if I win I can create my memories. I also intend to get the book on Matisse. You have piqued my curiousity to learn about about him.

  • Susan Skipper January 29, 2017, 2:32 pm

    Hiya Carolyn – Great Giveway – have already put some of the new stencils on my wish list. You might not have time to video as you went, but thankfully others did and posted them on YouTube – it did look like you were having amazing fun.

I’m practicing gelatin printing with a homemade plate, in my country it is really hard to find imported goods now that we have currency control, but I enjoy so much watching artists like yourself making so many pretty pages that I just couldn´t resist and made one.

  • Stacy N. January 30, 2017, 7:42 pm

    Carolyn, I love your art. You are such an inspiration. Thank you for doing what you do. You inspire me to work harder on my art and to be less of a perfectionist. Art is different for everyone. Sometimes, when you look at a piece that has an oops, stepping away from it helps to see that it’s really not bad. It just wasn’t what you initially were hoping for. Thank you for being you.
