New Eclectica Seth Apter stamps at PaperArtsy

Hi everyone, well over on the PaperArtsy blog tonight it's my turn to share what I've been making with the fabulous new Seth Apter stamp release. I made a mini envelope journal and a card.

There are 2 new plates ESA05 and ESA06 and I absolutely love them. Hop across to see all the details,  process shots of how I made the journal are below.

These are money envelopes and I brayered them before assembling. Julie Fei-Fan Balzer has a great tutorial on how to make them so here's the link

Once assembled I added touches of metallic fresco.

Grunge paste and paint through stencils before decorating. Here are the 5 pages

First pages

2nd spread

Pages 5 & 6

7 & 8

The final pages....

...and a monochromatic card

I've enjoyed working with Seth's previous releases, exploring his style and using his paint techniques; in the process my own style is evolving . I'd never have imagined creating something like this a year ago but love where these stamps have taken me.

Follow your bliss! R x
