Have you seen Artist Trading Blocks? If not, you are missing out on something wonderfully fun! Lisa has been hosting and ATB swap in our Facebook Group, and Lizzy not only created a beautiful block for the swap, she did a great video tutorial to show you how! This is what Lizzy's finished block looks like:
And here's that video she did:

Renea is back up on the blog today but this time using the
Scraps Of Elegance kit - Pretty Things
and she used this months Inspiration Board for inspiration
She used the papers from the kit, one for the bottom then a second layer
that she cut down and then did some paper curling on to expose the
matching paper underneath, some punching to add visual address, and
added some burlap string bows and some of the Blue Fern Chipboard from
the Embellishment Add On that I sprayed.
She then layered in burlap and more paper layers as well as some of the Bo
Bunny pieces that were in the kit, a wooden tag from the Embellishment
Add On that I put one of the stickers and Bo Bunny Brads from the EAO
Today I get to share some gorgeousness from Renea using the
Scraps Of Darkness 'Transitions' kit
I love the distressed edges!
She took some Tim Holtz Texture Pasteand a Palette Knife and
created a stucco look similiar to that in the photo, then sprayed the
edges with Prima Color Bloom Sultry Shimmer Gilded, allowed it to dry
then inked over it heavily with some Tim Holtz Distess Vintage Photo Ink to get that really aged look. She then sprayed some lace with some Antiqued Bronze Distress Spray Stain and tucked it under the edges randomly.
She added a layer of distressed and curled paper, 3 layers of Doilies that were sprayed with some of the Antiqued Bronze Distress Spray Stain,
and then added the photo. She pleated some of the paper added that to the
bottom of the photo along with some more of the stained lace, and then
began building her flower cluster with flowers from the kit and floral add
on, along with some things from her stash and some
of the chipboard embossed with Lindy's Embossing powder , and birdcage
charm that were all in the kit.
