ATB Art Doll! By Trish


Have you seen the cubes?! They are quite simply FABULOUS! Couldn't wait to get started with them, so here is creation number 1 of probably lots....

(These things are a pain to photograph though!!)
Maybe this angle will show off the cube-ness better...

These cubes are perfect for creating ATBs...Artist Trading Blocks. The possibilities are endless, from the very complex creations to something a little simpler, like my creation today.

Once I had glued the cube together, (this is a 3" cube), I glued a square of black cardstock onto each side. I then created a masterboard, smearing paint over an A4 sized bit of card. After a bit of stencilling, stamping and a bit of splattering , I cut the card into 5 squares (no need for one on the bottom!)

Each square was then fixed to a side of the cube..

I created my art doll by paper piecing stamped images and a cut out dress shape, then fixed it to the front of the cube..

She has a crown made from wire and crystals..

As I said, this is a 3" cube.... I can't wait to show you what I've made with the whole range of sizes.. and apertures!

All the cubes can be found in the shop HERE!

Have a fab day,

  1. I think you've caught the cubeness beautifully! And I just love the fiery colours and that fabulous crown!
