Phizzy I agree, that's a terrible tease  Wink

Thanks AM and I'm very happy to hear that you raised so much money in your garage sale, wahoo!

Thanks Kat! I'll go ahead and post your photos for you Kat and I'm very happy that you got Grandpa Frederick in both my vision and in Racky's how cool is that.



I really hope you like him. I had the hardest time with him and he was the clearest idea I had out of all of them. Go figure.

Because we, (and we all know who we is *wink*) can't stand an empty gallery and I just happened to have a scan of the ancestor that I sent to AM and she has received, I thought that I might go ahead and post this for AM. *chuckle*


Sonja her Sister and the giant rhubarb leaves. I also wanted to add her favorite purple color in there as well even though it wasn't her favorite flower.


The back

I'm glad she arrived safely AM!

Hi Jayluh!
Yeah Racky is right, there are of the same tradition as an ATC but in a much smaller format. 1"x1". They do look awesome when you get a bunch of them together and arrange them just so and I've used a number of them in other artwork too.
Here's a sample of a chunky page I did using two inchies.


Hehe, the inch reference was a total fluke and was in a small section of old newspaper that I had. Had to use it.

Ahem

MY TIN ARRIVED!
Granted it's not the original lost tin but Bhean sent me a replacement tin and it arrived today.


The gorgeous top view


The copper tape front view. Ignore the fact that I had the top opened whan I took this pic.  Roll Eyes


The insides.


And all the wonderful goodies all spread out.

Thank you so much Bhean!!

It also included a really pretty card with a pear stamp on it that I love but have put someplace safe and can now not find as I "tidied up" my area.  Roll Eyes It also explained CarrieMe's technique that she used for the very shimmery effect under the butterfly that I would love to hear more about.

Thanks CarrieMe!

Well it looks as though my tin actually did arrive at Bhean's doorstep...yahoo!!

This is what I sent her.

Wrapped and ready

The Bottom

The Contents

Full

The Top

Sorry for all of the huge pics but I figured the swap was almost over so why not, hehe.

Bhean likes Michael DeMeng's artwork so I went with that for my inspiration and sent her lots of rusty stuff as well. The little bottle, which did not photograph well, has gears and paint on the top and watch parts on the inside.
I hope you like it Bhean.

I'm a little behind in commenting...again.

ARoze I love all the stamps you seem to have in your collection. They are so great!

The Bon I love both those scowly little kids and I have to agree, great find. I'm also jealous of all your great collections of stamps.

C-Dayz, another gorgeous page from you, love it!

I've had a boon of great swap stuff come in lately, like Christmas all over again.

LisaT sent me a replacement page that I absolutely adore:



And an awesome page from Katxena as well:



Aren't they so pretty!

I'm not as far behind this time as I thought I was but I shall fearlessly post on like I've been here all along,  Grin.

Happy seriously belated birthday girls!!

ARoze love all those stamps on your page, so so pretty!

CarrieMe I can't believe how chunky that page came out and I love that little window.

Minouette, love the magical page and I too love your lino cutting abilities.

Racky, that "don't fear the inchie" page is just too awesome for words and it's beautiful to boot!

Tristitia, your page is just gorgeous. I love the ethereal quality it has...beautiful.

I've been bad about posting my lovely lovely page from bushbaby but in my partial defense I had been having some scanner issues, but having put those to rest I'm here to post .

My scanner won't be able to show how phenominal this is and I'm really hoping Bushbaby has better pics of it.


It's like a mini little etch a sketch! It's so dimensional that my scanner couldn't get it very good and I am bummed about that. I really don't know what she used for the pretty blue green part but it almost looks like it was felted but it's not. Maybe tissue paper? And dig the little wrapped stylus too. The tag comes with a screen wiper to use on the back.



This is just too cool!
Thanks Bushbaby!

AHA!!!
Figured out the darn scanner and now on to my fabulous page from Phizzy!


Isn't this book cover just a fabulous idea!! I LOVE everything about this.



My Mom is so gonna flip when she sees this!

Thanks Phizzy!

Hmm, I said I would come back and post some pics of some more inchies and failed to do that...until today.
I thought it was about time I posted some more of these addictive little buggars.

This set I made for a, ummm, different place  Wink


This set was for a personal swap.

As was this set.

I need to go make some more...soon.  Grin
