I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Not to long ago I was introduced to Artist Trading Blocks, or chunky ATCs. The idea of making a 3D ATC was exciting so I got to work on my first block. It began with Arthur Rackham images and a "glue something to something" method (it's pretty liberating!). So, I water coloured some backgrounds, inked things, glued nature stuff wherever, and here it is:



The front has a tissue paper flower that I colored on, inked a bit, and then added seed beads.







And my favourite side.



Happy 2014!

Beautiful! I love how organic it is, and the little acorn feet are adorable.

I am loving those acorn caps incorporated. My favorite is the first one, the flower seems so natural to the picture. They are all very well done, though. Good job.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Beautiful! I love everything about it, but my favorite detail might be the wee cattails on one side. Smiley (I also love using the "glue stuff to other stuff" method of crafting/art)
