A Chunky ATC

Today, my column, Musings of a 2amscrapper, is posted at Unruly Paper Arts blogozine.  The month's theme is ATCs.  I did a tutorial on chunky ATCs made from a block of wood.  My title is a play on words, Wood You Like to Make a Chunky ATC?  I hope you have time to stop by and read my article.

Here are some photos of my chunky ATC.  I used the Graphic 45 Bird Song paper pack.





I'm entering this in:

The  Craft Room:  From Me to You
I'm giving this to my oldest daughter who has framed the silk scarf I bought in Japan.  I hope she likes this little sit around which complements the colors in the scarf.

How fabulous, Helene! Love the papers, and that fan especially adds so much interest on the side.

Love this... I've never tried a chunky ATC, but have always been tempted - you may just have pushed me over the edge! Will be sure to check out the article at UPA!
