Concentrate on Seth Apter {by Keren Baker} with Seth Apter Merchandise


I discovered incorporating the paper forged flowers actually difficult. I wanted some color to distinction them in opposition to however equally they appeared too plain to not add color to them too. I dry brushed among the colors, rigorously mixing people who would combine to good new colors after which added some Stardust in the other way, having a tartan fashion in my head. The gray knocked again the ‘brights’ a bit too. Including black embossing powder helped with the textural mixture.

Dry brushing paint labored effectively with the flowers. I did go a bit overboard and may have caught simply to the perimeters. Should you flick the perimeters a bit, the layers will begin to separate which makes the completed flower a bit extra dimensional. You may see the place I’ve stitched within the centres. The stamped sleeve of Duralar appeared to assist floor the design.

I not often have ‘discovered’ objects- I assume I ought to search for them extra, however as I used to be attempting to complete off the circles tag, I wished so as to add some marks (Seth’s love of discovered objects and mark making hadn’t been misplaced on me!) and simply dumped the underside of my white gel pen into the paint and simply ‘stamped’ it round. It echoes the opposite circles and felt prefer it helped tie the opaque sleeve with the remainder of the tag.

My big tag was languishing. Including some French knots and mounting it on wadding then stitching on my machine gave it extra construction however I felt like I would misplaced the subtlety of the painted flowers. It was achieved although, so I had simply to complete it by mounting on some robust cardboard.

In creative endeavours, you by no means love the whole lot. Had been it not for the very fact I would discovered a lot creating the flower tag, it’d in all probability have ended up within the ‘bin of rejection’!!! This is the three, aspect by aspect!
