Crafting the Seth Apter Way Workshop with Chris Stevens

Good Morning Crafters!

Before I launch in to today's post, I must mention there is a demo day at the shop tomorrow. Margaret Brackenbury will be demonstrating the Threaders Inks & stamps recently launched by Crafters Companion, and there will be offers on the day for the products being used, so definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

Today I'm sharing the finished canvas which I started at the above workshop last weekend.

We made three backgrounds one on white cardstock (I will be using this for a card so watch this space), one on kraft card and one on canvas.  Using the Little Black Dress Paperartsy Fresco Chalk Finish Acrylic paint we painted all three black.

The colours on the kraft card were to be kept lighter as these would act as contrast on the dark pieces. The layers were built up further by add paint through stencils and on stamps.  I also used the die cut waste as stencils.  There are plenty of colours to choose from in the Paperartsy Fresco range but I used;  Mahogany, Mud, Terracotta, Buff, Carribean Sea and Midnight.

This is how my canvas looked at the end of the session.

At home I added some of the die cut pieces...

and highlighted the words using white and copper gel pens.

Seth Apter's stamps, dies and paints by Paperartsy are available from the shop.

Hope to see you at the shop this weekend but what ever you get up to Keep on Crafting!
