Artist Trading Block
The new challenge starts today at Frilly and Funkie and this time Jenny is our hostess. She is calling it Hip to be Square and she wants you to create a 3D vintage or shabby chic project based on a cube shape.
The Design Team have used Artist Trading Block cubes (available at The Funkie Junkie Boutique and further discounted by 15% for the length of this challenge) but let's be clear, you can use your own templates, dies or hand cut cubes if you would prefer. Decorate, embellish and alter them in any way you choose as long as they are cube shaped and have a vintage or shabby chic feel.
For this challenge we are teaming up with our friends at 'The Artists on the Block'. They have a dedicated Design Team using Eileen Hull Designs cubes (and many other 3D die cut shapes) in incredibly imaginative ways so make sure you take a look for some added inspiration. Their companion challenge blog 'Art With Heart' is having an 'Anything Goes' theme this month so you've got the option to enter your creations there as well to be in with a chance to win a brand new Eileen Hull Designs die!"
My little box is only 2 1/2 inches square on each side so I decided to go over the top and create a super-sized peony for the top. I am going to be hosting the Saturday Step X Step feature at Frilly and Funkie on August 16th so come back then to see how I made the flower and put all of this together.
I am going to enter my project in the following challenges:
Fan-Tastic Tuesday - Anything Goes (must be square or rectangular)
Through The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
My Craft Spot - 3D Flowers
Edited to add:
Art With Heart Challenge - Anything Goes
In the meantime, I will tell you that I got all of these products from The Funkie Junkie Boutique to make my little block.
