Last weekend I went to Art from the Heart in Harrogate for a weekend of two workshops led by Seth Apter.
The workshop on Saturday was '50 ways to leave your layer'. We were given a Dylusions square journal and did one technique for each double page. Some technique pages had more than one layer!
Smooshing - a type of monoprinting
Smooshing with others! This works so much better with the black background rather than the white above.
Printing with texture
Free choice of techniques to do the cover.
On Sunday we did 'Mixed Media Mashup'. We made one finished piece to take home using a variety of techniques following Seth's instructions.
My piece went from this first layer:
And in between were these layers:
Die cuts using Seth's Spellbinder Dies.
Auditioning the pieces
Improvements after advice from Seth
Added finishing touches
It was a fabulous full on weekend. Thank you Seth. Thanks to Art from the Heart for organising it and to my friend Carolyn who joined me for the weekend.
Well done if you've got this far. I did warn you there were a lot of photos.
Thanks for stopping by.
