It's time for another challenge over at Heather Hudson's challenge site, My Artistic Adventures. The theme this fortnight is Easter and/or Flowers which should be easy peasy! Use at least one of Heather's images and come play along!
My project was super fun to make. It's a set of six 2-inch wood puzzle blocks and I used a different vintage postcard from Heather's Etsy shop for each side. This is my favorite side. Those cute little chicks are so adorable. They're from the Vintage Easter Postcards Collage Set and there are three sheets of images to this set - a super value and so versatile!
These little blocks start out brand new with sharp edges and corners, and after much sanding (and more sanding, and still MORE sanding) and painting and distressing and decoupaging, I end up with cute little blocks that look like they've seen many decades of love.
This image is from the Victorian Vintage Basket collage sheet.
From the Vintage Easter Postcards Collage Set mentioned above.
Also from that set.
And another. See what I mean about versatile?
And you can't have Easter without a cross.
This is from Heather's Shabby Vintage Easter Cross set.
Thank you for joining me, and I urge you to go visit Heather's blog and that of the other designers to see their Easter/floral creations too.
I will be entering the following challenges:
Altered Eclectics - Anything Goes
The Shabby Tea Room #212 - Pretty In Pink (this probably doesn't qualify but I couldn't help sharing since the images do contain all the colors and even images of ribbon! :-) )
Simon Says Monday Challenge - Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew #58 - Animals (Easter Chicks and Bunny)
Oldie But a Goodie - April Showers Bring May Flowers (I followed the floral theme as opposed to the rain theme. The blocks are over a year old and I was saving them for a special occasion.)
Divas By Design - Anything Goes
