My First Artist Trading Block!

  This was a project I started a couple of weeks ago at my Crafty Night Monthly Meet. My goal this year is to finish projects I start!
  Lots of stuff going on here! Used TH Wallflower 12x12 paper set sealed to wood block using Mod Podge. The block is 3 1/2 in. squared.
  I raided my spring display stuff for the grassy stuff and foliage, including nest. The eggs were also from my stash and hot glued in place. Used a lot of hot glue on this baby! 
  Birds, flowers, eggs, were cut out and popped up with foam. Feathers were from Atlantic Fabrics. Also used some Dew Drops and charms. Flower and butterfly were punched out using TH Wallflower Vellum set.

The base is a metal film reel I picked up at a yard sale last fall.

This is what it looked like just after I Mod Podged the paper on to the block.

Entering this in:

1. Simon Says, Things That Fly / Simon Wednesday Challenge
2. Art with Heart Challenge March "Go Green"

  ATB's or Artist Trading Blocks are really in right now. If you Google, you will find all sorts of videos and awesome creations!

  Hope you give it a go! I will be making more! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful crafty day! 

i made it myself!

I absolutely adore this!! The entire piece has such an overall warm feeling, but I especially like the little unexpected details that seem to reveal themselves only after a second or third glance at a panel. My favorite: the key that makes the butterfly body. Displaying it on an old film reel is also a great choice. Thanks for sharing!
