Do you have hundreds of photos on your cell phone or in a box in your closet but don't know what to do with them? Print them off and pull them out because in Seth Apter's Photo Play workshop, he'll teach you, and student Amy Jones, how to alter the photos by hand for use in your mixed-media art. Begin by learning subtractive techniques to remove the photo emulsion and creating texture or pattern. Then, move on the additive techniques where you'll experiment by adding color with watercolor paint, dye inks, water-reactive markers and pens. After you've altered your photos, Seth will show you how to use and alter die-cuts to create frames and multi-layered art journal pages where your photo is the center of attention.
Seth Apter's Top 10 Collage Techniques
There are as many collage styles as there are people, but with Seth Apter's Top 10 Collage Principles, you'll have go-to tips for improving any type of collage you make. Begin the workshop by creating a reference manual of the 10 principles by spending time creating a mini collage of each one. Using just a few pieces of collage fodder in each, you'll have an easy-to-identify reminder of concepts including: connecting, separating, contouring and more. Then Seth with teach you, and student Amy Jones, how to create fun, grungy backgrounds for a larger collage. Follow along with Seth as he puts the principles into action by creating a more in-depth collage for the final demonstration.
You're only one layer away from magic! Truer words have never been spoken, as you'll see in this new workshop from Seth Apter. In Card Play: Mixed Media Techniques for Small Works of Art, Seth demonstrates how to take a simple deck of cards and turn it into a stunning year-long art journal. He'll take you, and student Cherie Haas, through the process of preparing the cards and adding layer after layer of paint and ink. You'll learn how to embellish one side of the cards using stamps, stencils, embossed wallpaper and more to create textured layers as the basis for small collages. Then, use the other side of the card for your weekly journaling, whether it's about a new technique, your mood, your travels or on a theme. This fun and exciting workshop will make it easy for you to journal throughout the year!
