Art Journal Calendar – October 2016

I’m ready for the new month for a change! A simple spread, using PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paint and Infusions, with the mini hexagon gel press plate, and PaperArtsy Seth Apter stamps. I used Darkroom Door alphabet stamps for the title.

I’m off to Port Sunlight’s Happy Stamper show tomorrow, demonstrating on the PaperArtsy stand. I can’t wait! And, our dear son Gordon is moving out, and up to Manchester, so we’ll be just the two of us rattling around our bungalow after this weekend. Proud, but sad to see him going.

Have a great weekend whatever you’re doing,

Seth Apter Class

Posted in Canvases, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on September 22, 2016 by craftytrog

A couple of weeks ago I attended a Seth Apter class, organised by the lovely PaperArtsy people. If you didn’t know, Seth has designed two new stamp sets for PaperArtsy, which you can see HERE, and they co-ordinate perfectly with his Impression Obsession stamps, and his Stencil Girl stencils and Spellbinders dies too.

Here’s the canvas that I made…
