Picasso’s Words Build an Art Journal Background

Playing with Picasso's Words in my stencil! Picasso's Words Stencil by Carolyn Dube for StencilGirl Products

Today kicks off 6 days of new stenciling videos and a giveaway each day to celebrate my latest release at StencilGirl!  Since I’m incredibly impatient, I couldn’t wait until Monday to start so I’m turning this on a little early.  I figure you don’t mind…

It’s no secret I love words and quotes but something happened when I played around with quotes by Pablo Picasso.  The words transformed from pure text to become design elements that intersect and overlap.

In the video, I share how the layers built up as well as how I effortlessly clean a finely detailed stencil such as Picasso’s Words.

Watch Building up layers with just one stencil on YouTube.

Win This Stencil!

To celebrate the launch of my stencils, I’m sharing a new video every day this week and a stencil giveaway each day!  Today you can win Picasso’s Words stencil and no matter which side of the pond  you are on you are eligible to win!   Leave a comment and you’ll be entered!

Want more chances?  Share this on Facebook. Come back and leave a comment telling me where you shared for another chance.  Share on Pinterest then come back…Share on Twitter….then come back. You get the idea!  Giveaway closes on Wednesday, November 26th  and I’ll announce the winners here on the blog on Friday, November 28th.

    I love how you used the stencil to cover the whole page and then layered different colors over the base layer. It sort of reminded me of those color blind tests where the letters and numbers and colors are all jumbled together1

    • Carolyn Dube November 16, 2014, 5:43 pm

    I’m digging the new stencils. Congrats on the release of 6 new ones. Thanks for sharing the tut, and for the opportunity to win a stencil. A girl can never have too many!!! BTW… using all the bright colors was a brilliant idea given the gloomy and cold conditions in much of the continental US right now. BRRRR….. ((((HUGS))))

    I’ve been having fun watching your videos. Your husband was so funny.

    I have to let myself go with. I want to read every quote from the stencil so it is hard for me to enjoy the picture. I do love the colors.

  • Claire November 23, 2014, 11:49 am
