A day with Seth Apter...

the highly textured background
 A day spent at Little Bird Creations studio, the class was Folded Foto Folio. The description for the day...

In this workshop, you will learn a variety of techniques from the worlds of mixed media, painting, book making, photography, and collage. We will start with creating highly layered and textured backgrounds using acrylics, gesso and paper. These in turn will become the pages of a one-of-a-kind accordion book, to which you will add your own handmade covers. Next comes your own photography, to be added as the focal image of each page. And finally, you will create your own personal touches throughout the book using your choice of collage and mixed media materials. Everybody will have the opportunity to make several books and in the end, you will leave with both a unique photo journal and a host of techniques that you can apply over and over to any number of future projects
