Seth Apter Workshops

I'm interrupting my armchair travel guide to New Zealand & Australia to share the workshops that I did last weekend at Art from the Heart with Seth Apter.

On Saturday Seth presented 'The Book of Moments'.  He showed us an easy way to bind two book covers together.

And then we made the pages.  I'm really pleased with how much I got done in one day.   I love Seth's teaching style - structured technique in the morning and supervised play in the afternoon.

I have the backs of all these pages to collage and one more doublesided page to make.  I am thinking of using 3 tags instead for the missing page.

Sunday brought us 'Cutting Room Floor' where we altered photos and then made a background and collaged one of the photos.

I took these two photos with me amongst others and below you can see how I worked into them and colourized them.

This one was a black and white version of the photo above.

I didn't change very much of this one.

For the afternoon's collage, I painted the background

I looked through the collage elements I had taken with me and came up with this layout.

It didn't look quite the same when I had stuck it down but that doesn't matter.  I added some finishing touches.

Here are the links to previous blog posts for Seth's workshops.

If you have enjoyed looking at the work I've done in Seth's workshops why not check out his DVDs and Downloads.   You can buy Seth's DVDs direct from his online shop or if you're in the UK you can download them from the Northlight Shop.

Have fun!

Thanks for stopping by.
