Friday night we (and by we I mean a boatload of my artsy pals) filled the studio to learn from the wonderful Seth Apter. I took a class with Seth at CREATE this summer, but prior to that have been a faithful reader of his always interesting blog, The Altered Page.
If you don't follow the blog, I urge you to start. Seth is an eloquent voice, promoting not only mixed media art, but a strong community of mixed media artists.
Our project was called Text Tiles, small (4x4 and 6x6) cradled wood panels covered with multiple layers and featuring some text.
Here are some shots of my larger tile as it changed with the addition of layers of paint, gesso, texture, stencils, stamps, masks, etc.
I did the smaller tile to coordinate with the larger.
Seth suggested I attach the two, and so I did.
I used a heavy duty glue and a few staples for extra support.
I swiped this photo from a FB post in the lamest lowest tech manner imaginable. I brought the photo up on my tablet and snapped it with my phone. So, it's not the sharpest, but I think you can see how happy we all are. BTW, that's me in the back, on the left, next to Pat, who appears to be resting one of her tiles on my head.
