Unlike tags and ATC’s, Artist Trading Blocks allow you to create in 3-D!
Let's get started: Using the blank die cuts, I masked of sections so I could spray Dylusions ink onto one 'face' of the cube at a time. I ended up starting with a make-shift stencil which is actually the bottom of a little strawberry basket from the supermarket (saved from the summer!)
Eddy Rose 6, Swatton Grid, Mimosa 6, Gears, Greek Key and Bubbles) and over spraying with a different colour.
I love texture, both visual and tactile, and one of my favourite ways to achieve it is with Glass Bead Gel. It goes on somewhat white, but dries clear, leaving wonderful clear glass beads that allow the colours underneath to shine through. It's best applied with a palette knife.
For obvious reasons, the top of "Self Portrait Cubed" includes my name, picture, Q code and blog address, which I cut out of one of my business cards. The final addition was a line of Pearl Paint around the edge of each of the sides.
Here are close up images of each of the six sides:
