StencilClub Voices Go for PLAYTIME

Our amazing StencilClub Voices Natalie Lewis, Margie Murphy, Beth Broadway, dove into Playtime with vigor! Up close, the textures and colors are quite fun.

Here's what they (and I) created with Carolyn Dube's PLAYTIME:

Natalie Lewis' Girl with Balloons

Natalie writes, "I used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks and the resist spray on the background. Very cool texture. Stenciled the words and drew the girl, filled her in with markers. Used a glue stick to add words and girl to the background."

Margie Muphy's Retro Envelope

Margie recycled a StencilGirl® mailing envelope great for sending something cool to a friend or using as a gift certificate or gift card holder.

Margie writes, "I love retro anything, so the large stencil really spoke to me. The background is just roller marks from cleaning off my roller after using the Gelli plate!  Used the large and small stencils and acrylics, as well as BasicGrey “offbeat” line paper and stickers from my extensive stash."

Beth Broadway's Mixed Media Canvas Panel

Beth writes, "What a versatile set from Carolyn Dube. The possibilities are endless."

"I started with an 8x10 white canvas panel. Using the mini and 9x12 stencils, I created the base with black gesso and modeling paste. I used various acrylic paints and glazes for the background. I cut circles out with the 6x6 stencil from gelli prints I made using the stencil set on deli paper. Using tips from my recent class with Mary Beth Shaw, I tied them together. I added pink splatters and stabilo-all pencil with drippage. I applied black paint and white gel pen through the mini stencil for the sentiment and white splatters for the final touches."

Carol Baxter's Air Elemental

You never know what will fly in on the winds of a monsoon storm! This air elemental landed on my office closet door. 

I traced shapes from the small stencil on papers from my stash, including a blue security envelope, and then tore them out instead of cutting. I made "feelers" out of wire, and cut orange threads for the tail. I used the large stencil with yellow paint to make the top 3 feather wings.

Carolyn is a prolific designer and loves to play in her studio. You can find the wide variety of her stencils on our website
