hello everyone!! diana here again with my latest Art on the Block piece!!
i must say i am a little or a lot addicted to them but i have to say i was warned prior to even getting my hands on them that i would be there are so very many things one can do with them. you so need to check them out here (http://theartistsontheblock NULL.com) on the Artist on the Block page as well as the many many examples shown here (http://www NULL.pinterest NULL.com/eileen_hull/artist-trading-blocks/) on Eileen Hull’s pinterest page and of course here (http://www NULL.pinterest NULL.com/Sizzix/) on Sizzix page
so on to my creation this month.
i started out using one of my Sizzix movers and shapers (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/product/657200/sizzix-movers-shapers-magnetic-die-family) Tim Holtz design dies, family and cut it out of a piece of mat board. i had a bit of issue with it but a quick email and figured it was probably just from the layering of the mat board so i was a little gentler and it seemed to work.
so i coated it in tattered rose and picket fence crackle paint and set it aside to dry
i love all the cracks!! so antiquish!! (yes probably not a word but you know what i mean right!)
next it was time to do some stamping. i tried to think of all the words for ‘family’ i could come up with an i stamped away using black archival ink. i then used a bit of tea dye distress ink on my blocks and then did a quick cover of utee
i of course ended up getting lost in the whole process.
i know i used Eileen’s Trinity’s (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/product/658443/sizzix-bigz-die-flower-trinity-s) flower die by Sizzix which i inked and crumbled and inked again prior to attaching to the top of the ATB
