Flight School ATB

Today we go to Flight School with Andrea Ockey Parr.  She shows us how to dress up a block tower and take flight with Madame Condor's School of Flight.  This project is part of our month long block hop with The Artists on the Block.  Both teams have created some beautiful works and I hope you enjoy this whimsical tower by Andrea.

Welcome to my contribution for the November Block Hop which is a creative collaboration between Artists on the Block and 100 Proof Press.  Here's my ATB creation, which I titled, "Madam Condor's School of Flight."


It's a crazy little whimsical place where any person or creature can learn to fly!  And hey- Eileen Hull's ATB Sizzix dies could not make this process any easier!  Once I had the box pieces cut, I cut out a door and a window in two of the boxes and then I covered my blocks with fabric scraps cause that's just how I roll.  

I added some "flight students" and used some Martha Stewart butterfly punches to make their wings.  I cut some triangular roof pieces and stamped them up.  I made my school sign with fabric, a toothpick pole and alphabet stamps.  I smeared on some Distress Ink for some bursts of color, assembled the boxes and and wah-la!

This project was so fun and these block shapes are so full of possibilities!  And of course, 100 Proof Press stamps are packed with potential, too.  Here are links to all of the stamps I used on my ATB:

For the flight students and their wings:
     The Three of Us
     Star Cloud
     Typing Keys

For the roof decor:
    Bullet Holes
