Seth Apter Workshop Leftovers

Good Morning Crafters

You may remember a couple of months ago I attending a "Crafting the Seth Apter Way" workshop with Chris Stevens. We created three backgrounds with Paperartsy Paints and did a bit of die cutting and, even after making the canvas and a few cards, I still had a lot of leftovers.  I dare not call it waste as Chris would cut my tongue out! 

So yesterday afternoon I had a little play with a leftover piece and my Distress Oxides.  A lot of the paint colours I had used toned in well the Distress Oxides colours (I bought the first 12 whilst they were on offer in the shop).  What I discovered is using the Distress Oxides on top of Paperartsy paints gives the Oxide finish a shine rather than the chalky finish when used direct to cardstock.  I have used one of the white Gelly Roll pens to colour in the Birthday.

I think this will be glued into my random pieces book as a sort of reference project. 

If you missed out on the Distress Oxide workshops then pop along to the shop on 23 September as Chris will be demoing these fabulous inks from Tim Holtz.
