I'm always finding ways to squeeze a little art into my life and what better way than to do it with inchies! The tiny 1 x 1 "canvas" does not intimidate me. It pushes me to make it work and work I do in a fun and challenging way. I start with something colorful. Sometimes I hunt down scraps of paper with interesting backgrounds. Tickets left over from yesterday's carnival make a great start! I know that many of us paper enthusiasts have a hard time throwing out those odd pieces for that "one day project." Believe me, inchie art can be that "one day project" TODAY! I save book catalogs for featured art and words. When I get the temptation to make some inchies, I pull out the saved catalogs and go to work. Lots of interesting art and words to choose from. Don't forget to incorporate those small stamps you have. Perfect for this type of art. A glue stick works great for holding it all down.
I want to feature my collection of inchies in a unique way. I've toyed with the idea of glueing them all along side a bookcase with a gel medium or doing the modge podge thing but I need to make more inchies cause I have a tall bookcase. Then my cautious nerve jumps in and I try to think of another way to make my inchies stand out. Any ideas? I KNOW!.......................I KNOW!..........................time for a contest! Each person who sends me an idea on how to feature my inchies will get their name entered in a raffle! The prize? A ziplock bag with blank 1 x 1 squares waiting to be adorned AND a catalog or two with "art" crying to be cut up and put onto an inchie! Come on! Play! You have till next Wed., Dec. 31st, to enter your ideas in the comment section. Get to work!
