Art Block by Pam Bray

I am totally hooked on these Artist Block using Sizzix XL Scoreboard and using it with my Fall Collection Stamp Set 2 made and amazing Art Block.
Start by cutting out two of the XL Scoreboard, stamping the "small dragonfly" using Black Ink.
Using your Tim Holt Distress Inks, distress over the top of the XL Scoreboard til you achieve the look you would like.
 Stamp lots of sunflowers and dragonflies on water color paper using a die black ink.
Color the sunflowers in using Tim Holtz Distress Markers
Repeat with your distress markers for the dragonflies...cut each of them out with scissors. Layer two dragonflies in the center so the wings will look like they are flying. 
The "Brick Wall" is Sin City Stamps Art Journaling with  Terri Sprouls 2. Layer sunflowers together with pop dots and the centers are made using Sage Flower Soft and Quick Dry Glue. Add them to your project when dry.
 For the top of the box I used wood letter journals along with just a tiny bit of French Country from Graphic 45, some metals and a few of the sunflowers and dragonflies I made earlier. Added a red sheer ribbon bow to finish the top off.
Here is the other side of the box using more of the wood letter pieces, sunflowers and dragonflies. My legs are recycled screws that were removed from an old cabinet....don't you love to re-purpose parts...lol. I hope you enjoyed my Art Block and please check out SinCity Store to check out my line of stamps along with other stamps, chipboard, die cuts, stencils, etc that are available. Hugs Pammejo

  1. Fabulous altered block, Pam. Love all the stamping elements, and especially the flower soft used to dimensionalize your sunflowers. Absolutely love the hardware you used to repurpose for legs. Thanks for all the great ideas!
