Wood blocks are a great way to feature some of your favorite photos! Here is a wood block that I decorated with some pictures of my nieces’ adorable newborn, Robert.

Here’s how I created this cutie! I started with a Linnie Blooms Wood Block and used black craft paint on every side. Once dry, I picked out some scrapbooking paper and cut it down as desired to cover each side of the block. I then decoupaged the paper onto the block and let it dry. 

For the large side of the block you see in the lower right-hand corner of the photo, I simply cut a coordinating piece of scrapbook paper to use as a mat for the photo and decoupaged it on. The photos I used I printed on matte photo paper and decoupaged on as well. The little star was colored by mixing a Faber-Castell Gelato and some water together and then drying with a heat gun. Then I set a little eyelet in the center of it before adhering it to the block. 

For the other large side of the block, I colored a Linnie Blooms Canvas ATC by drybrushing blue acrylic paint to it.  This was then used as a matte for the photo.  I just love all the added texture you get from using stitched canvas on your projects.  The rest were embellishments I dug out of my stash.
