I've been busy creating a few projects and this is my project for our March Challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit.
I was fortunate to find a whole bag of children's building blocks made from solid wood in a charity shop..I've had them quite some time, in fact after washing them, my great grandson plays with most of them when he stays over....but I did keep some for altering!
The painted blocks were sanded down, the others I applied gesso directly to the bare wood.
I used Oxide distress inks on several sheets of 200gsm card..once the card was dry I stamped all over them.
All that was left to do was to cut sections of the card to suit each brick..I used book glue to make sure the card adhered securely to each brick.
Once I assembled and glued each piece in place, I sprayed it twice with a glossy sealer....
Sadly the photos don't do the Tower justice, the colours are a lot more brighter and there is also a shine to it that the camera hasn't picked up...
We would love to see you enter our challenge...you can find us here at
