Artist Trading Blocks from Altered Pages!

Believe it or Not, this ATC started out as a block of wood!! Yes, you can purchase Artist Trading Blocks here at Altered Pages. They are a lot of fun since you have four sides and a top to work with.

To start paint the block with gold craft paint. Cover the side with French Kiss Glitz Paper. Get the images you would like to use on your ATC, for this one images are from:
This fussy cut lady was actually on a Valentine, a few feathers were added to her hat.
On the sides with the ladies there are few gems in the lower right. A little netting was added to the hat behind the big bow of this lady. 
The Eiffel Tower is from the French Kiss Glitz Paper pack.  
The Leaky Shed Fancy Keyhole can be found at Altered Pages HERE! Vintage trim from my stash was added around the bottom to give it a finished look. Finally it was topped off with beads, buttons and a jewel. 

Hope this convinces you try to make a few ATIST TRADING BLOCKS.  They make great gifts!
