If you haven't checked out the ATB swap gallery, you should, it is so awesome - some of the members have posted their projects already, like cackle and her Harry Potter Philosopher Stone ATB to name one, but that gallery is chock full of wonderful goodies so far, and not everyone has received and posted yet. 

Anyways, I am a part of that swap, and this was the ATB that I made and sent to SonjaBoo.  It was amazingly fun and inspiring to try something completely new to me and I had a great time making it.

It is inspired by a little owl poem I found.  I decorated 4 sides of the block with owls under the moonlight, and parts of the poem.  I thought I would like my block to hang, rather than stand upright, and used the ribbons to display part of the poem as well.



I used paint, decoupage, stenciling, and embossing to decorate the block.  The images are done with die cut elements that were painted and inked, or toner image transfer.  The branches were done with wire wrapping and alcohol inked shrink plastic leaves. 







Here is more about it on my blog - mainly some more detail on what was involved in the making and some more pictures.  I am nowhere near the league of some of the other members of the swap, but I did enjoy making this and hope hope hope there will be another swap like this, because I would like to play again!

I also made a matching tag to go with the block, displaying the whole poem.  Did I mention I love making tags as well?

Thank you.  This one made me a bit nervous because we had a month to create it, but it seemed like I burned through it in a few days, but it just seemed to go sooooo smoothly!

Marvelous! I love all of the different elements and the quote that you added - it's perfect for the design.

I'm sorry I missed that swap. You guys all created awesome stuff!
