Wood Block

The Suziblu workshop has finished and I'm now trying to find new ways of using what I've learned.
DH has made me a load of woodblocks of different sizes and I'm going to use them for painting on. They are mainly ATC sized but this one is even smaller; 8cm x 4cm. I like the idea that I can use the sides and the back as well. I used acrylics, lace, paper napkin flowers, torn text and gold leaf. Hope you like it - because I LOVED making it! I'm off to start another one........

These are beautiful Linda. The unfinished texture of the wood gives it a lovely look.
