Seth Apter Binder

It's been a beautifully warm couple of days here in Surrey and I have taken the opportunity to sit out in the garden for a while. Gotta make the most of it now as it will soon be winter lol.

Today I am sharing photos of my binder made at the Seth Apter workshop organised by PaperArtsy. I joined up with Nikki, Susan, Gabrielle and Clare and had an amazing day exploring Seth's techniques and products. I got a lot done in the session not only the binder but five technique pages to go in it too but I have to admit I added more detail at home using some of his stamps and and stencils that I brought on the day.

I loved the layers and the way everything came together .....

.... and made some more backgrounds to stamp on, die-cut and punch. I had used some of Seth's products at the workshop but they were not all available on the day so I can feel another spend coming on.

I opened the binder up and worked across both covers and spine at the same time.

I couldn't add the 'inside' stamp straight onto the binder as the cover was more or less finished, so I used one of the backgrounds I made at home to stamp on twice and die-cut the circular piece out and then chopped the word up on it's own and glued over the top.

Seth was a great teacher carefully explaining his techniques and sharing some of his work as examples. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

If you pop over to Country View Crafts Project Blog you can see all our binders and a photo of the CVC girls together. Thanks Susan, Leandra and Seth for a brilliant day.

I hope you are all having a good week and able to get in the sunshine too.
