Inside Change


Over on the PA blog there is a new guest designer called Seth Apter, now you may of heard of him as he has designed some of the Stencil Girls stencils. He made a project, which you can see here using his new ones and fresco paints.


I didn't have any cold press water colour paper so I used a piece of hammered card and scraped chartreuse over the top with a credit card. I stamped the grungy background images in seaweed and snowflake and added tikka to the grunge paste before applying it through the stencil.

I added black fresco through the only one of Seth's stencils that I have, outlined in black and white posca pen, added parts of my new PTP stencil (dangles) and this is how it ended up.

Fab, love the subtle layers, just shows how a striking piece can be achieved with very little product.

Darcy's right - "striking" is a great word - the bold b&w against that zingy background... fab!

Loving this response to Seth's inspiration. The colours and textures are so dramatic: it really makes you sit up and take notice! Great piece, Sam! Julie Ann xxx
