Hi StencilGirl lovers, today we get to play with Seth Apter’s three bold new stencils and I chose the Numbers Stencil L184 for it’s great marks and numbers.
I like making my own storage containers for the studio out of recycled materials. They look great, remind me of things I love and are truly functional. Seth’s stencil is so like his artwork, refined, graphic and with a bit of an urban grafitti feel, texture and always some rust. Here is where I took it.
I started off with a sheet of paper I had stamped all over using a variety of commercial stamps a texture one of my own and permanent inks.
The box is a direct homage to Seth’s use of gears and rusted metal in his work. I pasted the paper all around, added black metallic ink, a rusty washer, a gear and a push pin for the topper. It’s great to hold my collection of paper clips.
Who new a pushpin painted metallic black and glued into place could look so good! Next I wrapped the papers around the carton and added washi tape and embossing paste to give a bold graphic appeal. Perfect for tall brushes.
I adore the xxx too. Reminds me of Antoni Tapies who is one of my favorite artists and Seth’s too, we share a love of his work. You will see the XXX on this can.
The embossing paste gives the x’s a gritty look. Tapies often used dirt to enhance the texture in his pieces, fitting don’t you think? And finally, can #2 holding all of these markers and pens.
Hop along and see what other fabulous project emerged from this creative and oh so talented team.
