Yesterday was such a treat. The workshop was called A Book of Moments and it was organised by The Birds in the Barn, near Colchester Essex. .It was one of the most well organised workshops I have ever attended. The attention to detail was faultless. Every table was covered and had a waste bag attached, on the table were baby wipes, kitchen towel, a box of things that might come in handy and at each place a gift or cards and a goody bag.
There were a lot of us too, so it must have taken a lot of hard work to organise.
When the spine was in we started on the pages and Seth told us he thinks there are two kinds of people who collage, the Auditioner and the Committer and urged us to try identify which one we are and try the opposite.He is a Committer, I am definitely an Auditioner, freeing up is hard.
Seth in demo mode.
The time went so fast but this is what I had at the end of the day.
The cover, not quite finished
The pages are not attached yet as I will complete all and arrange at the end. The background on this one ancient gelli plate papers
The background on the right is an Citrasolve experiment
This background is town paper collage
And finally, my present to me my own tiny piece of original Seth Apter. It is called September. Scan doesn't do it justice.
A superlative day.
