Chunky Art

Today I am showing you a piece of chunky art made from lots of fabulous pieces sent to me by Gerri at It's All Treasure

My dear hubbie cut me lots of pieces of wood and this is the first piece I have used.  It is almost a chunky ATC, just slightly thinner.  It was painted with white acrylic paint and then I set about using lots of the bits that Gerri sent me for her 'Do you want to play with me' pack, see here.
This is what I received.


and this is what I made.




I wasn't able to use all the bits and I would have like to put some chain and feet on it, but I will look out for the right fixings and some large beads.

Thanks Gerri for providing the resources and challenging me to use materials I wouldn't normally use. 
It really made me think.

Have a great weekend.

I absolutely love your Chunky Art block. I've wanted to try it, but haven't made one as yet. I love the way you used Gerri's treasures. It's been so much fun to see what everyone made!
(I hope this doesn't duplicate. I tried leaving a comment when she first posted, but don't think it went thru).
