Artist Trading Block

When I saw this challenge last year I thought what is an artist trading block so I googled it. Thank goodness for google and found it was a square handmade box. So I thought I'll have a go at this. And as ususal I made it bigger and had to post it overseas, cost me a bomb but my swap partner just loved it. So here goes this is my Artist Trading Block....










I used some scraps of Prima paper I had in my stash but found it needed some strength so I cut some cardboard and put inside to strengthen. I have mixed mediaited the outside and used some sea shells and flowers from my stash.  I also had an old cotton reel that I put onto the bottom to raise it up.

This is the Artist Trading Block I got in return just love it.  









 And some extra little goodies for my stash.
