I loved making my first ATB for the ATB swap so much that I made a second one last week, and am working on some element for a third one.  Seriously, if you haven't checked out the ATB swap gallery, you don't know what you're missing.  Anyways, this was a steampunk inspired one.  I decorated the front and back with vintage sheet music, and the other sides with and embossed gear pattern on aluminum tape.  I decorated with various gears (thanks Wulf for the tip about the gel medium as glue), and three gents.  I used the brass portion of a spent 12 gauge shell as the base, and nailed two word plates I stamped on the sides.

 







Here is some more information about this block on my blog, with a bit more detail about the block and some more pics.

It was a lot of fun, and addictive - it's almost freeing to have the challenge of decorating the 6 sides, and the option of moving it outwards... or possibly inwards!  You may find it addictive!
