Chunky ATC for Class at Whole Lotta Scrap

I thought I would share a second post for today and show off a chunky ATC I made for a class at Whole Lotta Scrap here in Norman, OK. I keep trying to find something to tickle the interest of the folks I teach but it seems that the only thing they are really interested in are tags.

This chunky ATC is made with a piece of 2"x4" lumber that was left over from a project here in the house. I had my son-in-law cut the lumber into 6" and 3 3/4" pieces so I could make different sizes. I haven't found a standardized sizing on chunky ATC's but every one seems to be using these cut lengths. The whole idea of the class is to show off what you can do using a piece of wood, a little paint, paper from a Tim Holtz paper pad, and the Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers dies.

I am going to do a 180 around the block calling this the face of the block. On this side I used the Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers dies mini flourish, mini flowers, and leaves from the Mini twig and leaf set.


Side two has a butterfly made with the mini butterfly mover and shapers set.



















Side three is made using the Mini bird cage and bird set!



















Side four is the mini lock and key set.


















I used Delta Ceramcoat paint to paint the wood block then picked papers out of the Tim Holtz Paper stash Vintage Shabby. Dies as listed above, Distress ink Vintage Photo, Broken Glass. The seam binding was colored with broken glass reinker and tied with Lion Brand Eyelash Fibers. Crochet Ribbon, jewelry findings, bling and Dew Drops etc from my stash. I have long ago taken these items out of original packaging and I can't remember the manufacturer!
