Spring is finally here.....and its been a beautiful spring day here in the UK!
(It's also our mother's day too, so wishing you all a very happy, peaceful day!)
Today I wanted to share this make, inspired by the very lovely Seth Apter...
I'm a huge fan of Seth's work and Im always inspired by how Seth creates layers (check out his blog here) I was very lucky to meet Seth, earlier on in the year....honestly, I could of watched his demo's all day....such a creative soul and a really lovely chap.
So here's what I created...
I used Seth's limited addition paints (set 2) from Paperartsy
I used lots of layers of paint, when I was happy with the background I used one of Seth's stencils (Transform from stencil girl) and continued to add ramdon layers.
I then stamped faintly with Seth's stamp set from Paperartsy (here)
Next I added lots of splatters.
The die cuts are from Seth's range of Spellbinders (here )
I coated them in Tim Holtz grit paste, then coloured them using the paints
Some of the die cuts were mounted onto some book text, then I added a butterfly from Idea-ology Botanical ephemera pack, which I sewed into place.
To finish I added some more words from the book text and
added a rusty key from my own vintage stash.
I really enjoyed creating this piece, I hope you like it too!
(...A BIG thank you for your inspiration Seth!)
As always feel free to leave a comment, I really appreciate each and everyone!
Have a lovely week...
