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…
