Hello! Peg Robinson here! My project today starts out as so many of mine do...with repurposing a no longer loved item. I love to upcycle and reuse items that would otherwise become trash. That is probably what attracts me to Seth Apter’s art. Seth uses found objects in his creations and I love his art images. Check out StencilGirl for more of Seth’s work.
Working with an old computer book that was ready for the recycle bin, I first reinforced the sleeve with cloth athletic tape. This adds strength and a bit of dimension.
This layer is followed up with a layer of black gesso on the sleeve and the binder insert.
Next is stenciling with Seth’s awesome stencil line.
I created texture by using a texture gel mixed with acrylic paints to colorized the medium. The mixture was spread on the components glued to the front of the sleeve as well as applied through the stencils.
To finish, I used Color Bloom sprays and a few metal embellishments.
I have a video of some of my process for you here:
