What is an ATB?

What is an ATB? An Artist Trading Block is kind of a 3D Artist Trading Card! The 3 x 3 x 3 block I am using is from Eileen Hull Designs.
During the month of May join the Altered Pages Design Team as we cross promot Eileen Hull Designs Artist Trading Block's along with the "The Artists on the Block" Design Team. The "The Artists on the Block" will be posting inspirational ATB's every Tuesday. The Altered Pages Design Team will be posting every Thursday, plus a few bonus posts during the month. Be sure to stop by often for a month of inspiration.  






Supplies:
Eileen Hull Artist Trading Block
Tsukineko - StazOn Midi - Claret
Feathers
Petaloo Flowers
Black Paint

Start with the two the diecut boards for the Eileen Hull Artist Trading Block, ink edges and corners with StazOn Midi Claret. Put double stick tape on the two tabs of one board, attach the tabs to the sides of the center square of the second board.  Fold up the top and bottom of the box and tuck tabs in. Adhere 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 papers to the block 

Adhere 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 papers to the block. Embellish with papers, ribbons, glitter trims and more. Add four painted wooden feet!

 A beautiful center piece for a ladies gathering!



Be sure to watch for more ATB's all month long!

Lyneen, what a beautiful ATB, love how the lady and feathers are exploding out of the block and yes it would make fabulous centerpieces.
