Artist’s Trading Block Tower {Block Hop}

block hop
Welcome to the Artist Trading Block hop, with 100 Proof Press stamps and Team ATB combining to create inspiring projects with artist trading blocks! Today I’m sharing a tower of blocks I created with all sizes of blocks available.

I made my blocks “artsy girlie,” with plenty of paint, lace, stenciling, stamping and more. I love owls, so I wanted the owls from 100 Proof Press to take center stage.

The bottom two blocks, I spread out, and before assembling them, used my gelli plate, stencils from Stencil Girl, paint, and mists, and layered them full. I then splattered paint all over them, in light and metallic colors. The top two blocks were covered in papers from 7 Dots Studio’s new collections, and also splattered on for the glitter fun. After stamping with black ink, I colored the owls with Pitt Big Brush pens from Faber Castell Design Memory Craft, and used watercolors for softness. The edges of the blocks are also distressed.

Layering on trims and little bits of metals, flowers, and feathers, really added to the sweetness of the whole project. Here’s a look at some of the individual block sides:

Finally, I topped off the tower with a fallish flower, feather and acorn flourish, with cheesecloth underneath. A key hanging brings the eye down. 🙂

    I love all the fibers and fabric touches, and those owls are great! I especially like the ones looking to the sides. So cooky and cool!
