Seth Apter Creative Community

Thrilled to announce that I am now the proud owner of a Facebook Group - Seth Apter Creative Community. Hope you will join me there where I plan to share artwork, tips and tutorials, post information about my live and online workshops, announce and share my newest product releases, discuss topics of interest to mixed media artists and creatives in general, take you behind the scenes of my life as an artist, post product additions and sales from my online shop, and highlight work done by YOU using my collections and supplies.

Head on over and join the party!

Make it Artsy

MAKE IT ARTSY

Thrilled to be a guest on 3 segments of the current season of the PBS television show Make it Artsy. Epiosode 11 from Season 6 is now live on their website and is available for viewing through December 13.

My segment focuses on 3 non-traditional approaches to heat embossing, including innovative and unique ways to add texture, borders and deep stamping effects.

Mixed Media Journaling Klass!

Today is the day. My newest online kourse - Mixed Media Journaling - is kicking off. Why all the Ks? Because the klass is sponsored by Sketchbook Skool. This is a four-week klass dedicated to all things mixed media journaling. 

This highly-interactive klass includes segments from Kecia Deveney, Mary Beth Shaw, Nathalie Kalbach, and me! We take you on a journey through our personal process of creating journal pages. There are tips, techniques, supply suggestions, personal anecdotes, and so much more - including homework! As part of Sketchbook Skool, there is a community platform with a ton of interaction - with both the instructors and the other participants. You can share your work, connect with other journalers or simply read all the comments.

You get lifetime access to the klass but joining at the start means that you can partcipate in live events as well.

You can hear a little more about my journaling journey in this Facebook Live recording. Or just head directly over to the site to learn more about the klass and to register. Hope to see you there!

Make it Artsy...again!

Excited to again be a guest on Make it Artsy, the PBS television show hosted by Julie Fe-Fan Balzar that focuses on sharing proejcts and techniques in all areas of art and craft. The show only airs in select markets but each episode is uploaded to the Make it Artsy's website for one week. The current episiode, Season 6 Epsiode 11, will be available through September 13.

My segment on this episode focuses on 3 easy techniques for using embossing powder in non-traditional ways. 

First up is demonstrating how to use texture spray as an adhesive to create grungy, textural effects. For this video, I used Imagine Crafts GooseBumps Texture Spray - although their line of irRESISTible Texture Sprays also work. For the second quick tip, I showed how to use a rubber stamp with Vintage Beeswax Baked Texture embossing powder from Emerald Creek to create a deeply recessed textural design. Finally I showed how embossing a dimensional frame for your art is the perfect final touch for your work.

You can watch my segment on my YouTube channel. The entire episode is available on the Make it Artsy website through September 13. Click here to download a PDF outlining the full instructions and a supply list.
