Holiday Blocks

Holiday blocks (approximate size 2 1/2" X 1").  These wooden blocks were given to me by someone who "knew I could do something with them".  They were in a box full of assorted sized children's building blocks.
I'm entering these in the Happy Little Stampers: Mixed Media Challenge.  Find their site HERE

I made these little mixed-media blocks in one day.  I had these blocks on my work desk for awhile and knew what I wanted to do with them, but not exactly what.  I finally just started adding paper and paint, ink, etc and came up with these four.

The first layer of each of these are scanned copies of a design I made in my Art Journal.

Supplies vary from:  scrap paper, white sigma pen, black ink, script stamp, white acrylic paint, watercolor pens, charcoal pencil, stamps, markers, modge podge, glitter glue and gesso.
